Is it Safe to Travel to the Caribbean?

You may have seen reports about suspicious illness and death in the Dominican Republic right now and wondered if that country is safe.  Or you may remember reports from a few years ago about deaths in Mexico, or violence in Jamaica last year.  All of these reports may have you concerned about traveling to any Caribbean country right now, and that's ok.  But make sure that you are making an informed decision, not just based on the media reports.  Some of those reports are using scare tactics to get more exposure, and not necessarily sticking to the facts. ​​There have been reports of violence, [...]

Plan Your Next Adventure with Island Routes

During our recent trip to St. Lucia, we also took some time to explore the island with an all-day excursion with Island Routes. If you're not familiar with Island Routes, this is the company that is paired with Sandals and Beaches resorts for excursions. You will see an Island Routes desk at every Sandals and Beaches resort, and we can also book your excursions before you travel to lock in availability. Some tours do book up, so it's best to book early. We chose the Soufriere Adventure Cruise. This is a seven hour tour which included a lot of highlights [...]

Sandals Grande St. Lucian

If you haven't visited St. Lucia before, I highly recommend that you put it on your travel list. This is one of the most beautiful islands that I have visited.

We were able to see them on our excursion with Island Routes. I will give you all of the details about our fun day next week! Sandals Grande St. Lucian is one of three Sandals resorts in St. Lucia.

Dining Options at Beaches Turks & Caicos

One of my favorite parts of an all-inclusive vacation is the amazing dining that the resorts offer. I have been in a beautiful resort, but if the dining was just so-so, or if there weren't many options to choose from, it affects the vacation experience.

Here is a list of all of the restaurants that you can enjoy on your next visit to Beaches Turks & Caicos: Courtyard Bistro [...]

Water Sports at the Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort

Last week I gave you an overview of this amazing resort, but there is so much more to tell you!! One of the things that sets Beaches resorts apart from other resorts is their water sports program.

That is definitely different than other all-inclusive resorts, and can save you a lot of money, especially if you are interested in scuba diving! Beaches Turks & Caicos offers so many water sports that you won't be able to try them all! We [...]
