4 Ways To Make Your Sun Vacation Different

When the time on the clock changes and the days get shorter, some time spent in the Caribbean heat feels like the only prescription to beating the onset of the winter blues. But if you’re not all that excited about another resort vacation, filling up on beer and buffets, then it’s time to think about how to add more life to your sun vacation this year. Here are four ways you can escape winter a little differently:

1 Add some golf to your all-inclusive package
A number of resorts offer golf options and if you book with a golf specialist, you can ensure you’re getting the best value. The Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort is a good example of a Mexico beach retreat with a side of golf. As one of the largest resorts in Mexico, not only will you have access to bars, and dining options, you’ll have Jack Nicklaus-designed golf courses all around you. The option of using a resort credit here toward unlimited green fees, can turn a standard all-inclusive vacation into a golf escape!

2 Experience the islands on a bike
For those who don’t want to forfeit their healthy lifestyle on vacation, a cycling vacation is a great way to stay active while away. Or, if you simply just want to try something new, it’s an easy way to meander the coastlines, towns and countryside’s of an island. In fact, take to the islands you’re likely most comfortable with, like Cuba or Mexico, and see them a little differently. In Cuba, ride through Havana and Trinidad. In Mexico, visit one of the new Seven Wonders of the World, Chichen Itza. The degree of difficulty for cycling tours varies from leisure to moderate to more intense.

3 Opt for a Caribbean cruise
Not every cruise is created equal, so it’s important to consult someone who knows the key differences of each cruise line. Some cruises are perfect for families, blending the right amount of programming for children and entertainment for parents. Other cruises are the romantic luxury retreat you’ve worked so hard to deserve. On board, celebrity chefs will make your taste buds dance, and tree-lined promenades will make you feel like you’re worlds away. The right cruise, aboard the perfect vessel, will allow you the opportunity to visit several Caribbean islands, and experience the best they have to offer.

4 Try something new, infuse a little adventure
For example, why not go to Costa Rica. It’s a chance to turn a typical vacation into a once-in-a-lifetime experience. A trip to Costa Rica, done right, looks something like this: a visit to Manuel Antonio National Park to kayak the mangroves, a surf lesson, a cruise along the coast on a sunset sail, or a zip line through a cloud forest. Adventures await everywhere, with something to pique anyone’s interest, no matter your comfort level.
