Resort Newsletter Dated July 29, 2014

Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

Customers often ask me for suggestions when looking for the perfect beach vacation. We represent more than 1,300 tropical hotels and resorts, and in this newsletter I thought I'd offer some tips that will help you narrow down the choices and find that ideal spot.

Travelers on a tight budget will generally find that the cheaper options are relatively close, in the Dominican Republic and Mexico -- both the Pacific Coast and the Yucatan Peninsula.

For a broad selection of all-inclusive resorts, where the upfront resort price covers accommodations, meals, beverages and activities, check out the options in Jamaica, the Dominican Republic and Mexico. All-inclusive properties are plentiful and varied in these destinations.

Cancun is a favorite choice among vacationers who plan to explore beyond their hotel and want easy access to a variety of stores, restaurants and nightlife. If you're content to spend most of your vacation on the resort's grounds, enjoying its amenities, then you'll find more secluded properties south of Cancun along the Riviera Maya -- in Playa del Carmen, Tulum and Puerto Aventuras, for example.

Snorkelers and divers will find clear waters and colorful sea life throughout the Caribbean, but there are a few places that stand out. Cozumel boasts miles of protected coral reefs and more than 250 species of tropical fish. It has been a favorite diving destination since marine explorer Jacques Cousteau shot a documentary there in 1961. Grand Cayman, Turks and Caicos and Bonaire are other good choices for snorkeling and diving enthusiasts.

Fans of deep-sea fishing should browse our resorts in the Florida Keys and along Mexico's Pacific Coast -- Mazatlan, Manzanillo and Los Cabos all are sportfishing meccas.

For golfers, challenging courses in beautiful settings are abundant in nearly all of the tropical destinations we offer, but you'll find some of the best courses in Bermuda, Hawaii and Florida.

Nature lovers can explore the scenic hiking trails and white-sand beaches of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands -- a national park covers two-thirds of the island. The forest preserves in St. Lucia, lush with giant ferns and wild orchids, are perfect for hiking and bird-watching.

Costa Rica is a top ecotourism destination, abundant with rain forests, waterfalls, sparkling beaches and extraordinary wildlife. (Costa Rica also is attracting a few major all-inclusive resort brands, particularly to the Pacific coast region of Guanacaste.)

Hawaii is a top pick for whale-watching (December through May is peak season), as is Los Cabos (from December through March).

May through September is turtle-nesting season along the beaches of Puerto Vallarta, where some resorts operate conservation programs that allow guests to help return hatchlings to the sea. Scuba divers and snorkelers can spot swimming sea turtles along the Kona Coast of Hawaii's Big Island.

If duty-free shopping is a priority, look at Nassau in the Bahamas or Charlotte Amalie on St. Thomas.

U.S. citizens who don't have passports can travel to the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Hawaii or Florida. You will only need a government-issued photo ID, such as a driver's license, for these tropical locales.

Finally, if you want to really get away from it all, some tropical retreats are truly off the beaten path. Peter Island, for example, is a privately owned island resort in the British Virgin Islands. Nevis, St. Kitts, St. Barts and St. Vincent & the Grenadines also offer an exclusive experience. There is an extra cost for the seclusion these spots offer and the additional flight time to get there. There are fewer flights, and you'll likely have to make at least one connection to get to these destinations from the mainland U.S. or Canada.
