1 Week All Inclusive Deal for Families: Calgary to 4.5* Barcelo Huatulco, Mexico - $880 CAD/person including taxes

Barcelo Huatulco

Sunwing Vacations has dropped the price of a 1 week all inclusive package (flight, hotel, transfers, all meals, all drinks) from Calgary to the Barcelo Huatulco in Huatulco, Mexico down to $880 CAD (per person) including taxes.

This price is based on a family of 4 (two adults, two children), as Sunwing is offering a discount for children aged 12 and under with this package.

Other variations:

1 adult, 2 children: $975/person
2 adults, 1 child: $975/person
just 2 adults: $1165/person

The Barcelo Huatulco has 4.5 circles on TripAdvisor with 43% of reviews rating it as Excellent.

The Sunwing flights from Calgary to Huatulco included with the package are non-stop both ways. However, Sunwing is known for sometimes changing their flight plans to include a stop.

About 'Kids Stay Free' Promotions and All Inclusive Packages

Whenever you see a 'kids stay free' promotion with an all inclusive package, it's a bit of a marketing lie. You're still paying for all of their flight, and usually part of the all inclusive price as well (such as the taxes and fees).

If you search for a package for just 2 adults, and then again for 2 adults with 1 child, you can see what the 'free child' is *really* costing you, by calculating the difference between the total prices.

In this example, Sunwing is offering the Barcelo package for $1165/person if it's just 2 adults, and if you do all the math, you can see that each 'free child' is *really* an additional $595.

So a decent rule of thumb for 'kids stay free' promotions is that for each child, you're really paying about half of what an adult would cost.
