All-Inclusive Resorts: Club Riu Ocho Rios – Jamaica
The next best vacation to a cruise getaway is an all-inclusive resort getaway. If you are considering a family vacation this fall or next summer, consider the Club Riu Ocho Rios Resort in Jamaica.
This resort is all-inclusive, which means you pay one price and get all your meals, accommodations, amenities and some entertainment included.
The Riu Ocho Rios is a 40-minute drive from the nearest airport (Montego Bay International Airport), but it is worth your time. Most of the past guests of this resort recommend it as a place to be and give it an “Excellent” or “Very Good” rating.
TripAdvisor ranks it 12th out of 39 hotels in the Ocho Rios area.
I strongly believe that your family will enjoy its stay at this all-inclusive property. Go have fun and share your experience.

You Must Give the Dominican Republic a Closer Look!
If you are considering a Caribbean getaway, then you must give the Dominican Republic a closer look.
Most people are familiar with popular Caribbean destinations such as Aruba, the Bahamas, Jamaica and Puerto Rico. While those places still remain hot destinations, the Dominican Republic (D.R.) is now the top place to visit in the Caribbean.
In 2013, nearly 5 million tourists visited the D.R. compared to 2 million going to Jamaica.
What is the great pull in the Dominican Republic? There are several things that make the country so “hot." Visitors can expect to find 1,000 miles of beaches, pristine golf courses, luxury resorts, budget hotels, popular all-inclusive properties, a rich combination of history and modern times, great cuisines, and an active nightlife. Plus, the D.R. has seven international airports servicing the island.
Most of the visitors to the D.R. are from North America (USA and Canada), but there is also a large percentage from Europe.
For those who may be wondering where this country is, the Dominican Republic shares an island with Haiti. The island, Hispaniola, is located southeast of Cuba and not far from the United States. While Haiti has been impoverished for years, her neighbor has seen a little opposite. There is activity everywhere as the tourist industry works to improve roads, amenities, attractions, and top hotel chains erect luxury properties.(However, there is poverty on the island.)
If you haven’t yet done so, put the Dominican Republic on your list of must-go Caribbean vacation spots.

Thinking of the Beach for Summer? As spring settles in and spring turns into summer, many Americans and people worldwide will be heading to the beach. Are you thinking of the beach for summer?
The attached photo is one of my daughter, Eliana, enjoying the Governor’s Beach on Grand Turk of the Turks & Caicos Islands. This was our fourth and last port of call on a Crown Princess cruise two Novembers ago. You may be able to tell from the photo that Eliana loves the water.
As a family, we love the water and enjoy going to the beach. That is one reason we look forward to cruising, because we normally get to visit at least two beaches on a cruise vacation.
How about you? Do you love the beach? Do you have a favorite beach? To be frank, I love the beaches in the Caribbean. As for beaches in the United States (those that I’ve visited), I prefer those on the Gulf of Mexico side.
So, are you thinking of the beach this summer? Which one will you visit?
The fact is that there are many beaches from which to choose. There are also many family-friendly resorts to go along with the beaches. Plan well in advance and get some help finding an affordable and exciting family getaway package.
Go have fun!
