With so many beaches, how does one choose a vacation destination? Committing to a Caribbean, Hawaiian, or South Pacific island; a Mexican hot spot; or even a Mediterranean location can be daunting if you have never been to any of these places! That is where the 300+ years of combined travel experience of Travel Gallery consultants proves invaluable in your search for the 'perfect beach vacation"!
Here are a few bits of info on several popular destinations. Why not contact your Travel Gallery consultant to help you sift through all of the choices?
Jamaica - known for its seven-mile beach in Negril, boasts a number of smaller, more private beaches that perfectly complement the smaller, more intimate resorts. Impeccable service with a distinctly Jamaican 'vibe' is a hallmark of this, the third largest island nation in the Caribbean. In addition to beaches, Jamaica offers a wide variety of soft adventure experiences including river tubing, zip lining, waterfall climbing, horseback riding on the beach, and more.
Dominican Republic - the resort area of Punta Cana boasts dozens of spread out resorts set on amazing powder-white-sand beaches that seem to go on forever! If your goal is relaxation with a touch of class, this is the place! Casino gambling and rousing production shows at many of the larger resorts end lazy days at the beach or by the pool on a high note.
Cancun/Riviera Maya, Mexico - two worlds separated by an airport, this region of Mexico is one of the most popular vacation destinations for North Americans. Head to hip, cool Cancun with its long row of resorts and hotels set on beautifully groomed beaches and marvel over the numerous shades of blue in the Caribbean Sea. Alternatively, head south to the Riviera Maya with its spread-out, self-contained resorts on expansive beaches with large lagoon pools and lush tropical vegetation. Venture off the resorts to soak in the local Mayan history or have fun at one of several adventure parks.
Hawaii - America's Paradise, with no passport required! Black, pink, green, sable and white - these are the colors of sand found in Hawaii! Beaches are usually a focus on Maui, but may take a back seat to other natural (and man-made!) wonders on the other islands. Hawaii has history, culture, sightseeing, water sports, amazing hotels, resorts, and the inimitable Aloha Spirit.
French Polynesia - another set of islands that are paradise with a decidedly European slant! Amazing beaches, snorkeling, diving, vistas of blue that goes on forever, and little to distract you from the sight - this is what relaxation is all about. Getting away from it all can definitely be checked off your 'to do' list in this part of the world!
