Despite Canadians’ love for all-inclusives, 56 per cent would prefer a different vacation experience than what all-inclusives typically offer; with more than one quarter (27 per cent) feeling they are missing out on the authentic local experiences.

Top local secrets include:

  • Liberia, Costa RicaCheck out Playa Avellanas just outside Liberia and near Tamarindo. This secret spot is something the locals call “Little Hawaii” for its incredible surf conditions.
  • Cancun, Mexico – More adventurous types may want to venture into one of the hundreds of Cenotes along the Yucatan Peninsula. A natural sink hole exposing a ground water pool below, discovering one of these Cenotes makes for a magical dip away from the crowds.
  • Punta Cana, Dominican Republic – Take a cruise to Isla Saona, an uninhabited island home to the Parque Nacional del Esté, a national park which features a bevy of beautiful sites including a maze of forests, mangroves, trails, caves and cliffs and some signs of early Taino activity for a diverse cultural experience.

The online survey was conducted  trom November 26th to November 27th 2014, among 1,004 randomly selected Canadian adults who are Angus Reid Forum panelists. The margin of error—which measures sampling variability—is +/- 3.1%, 19 times out of 20.
