Top Reasons For A Beach Vacation

Benefits of beach vacations

Canadians love the beach, particularly during the harsh winter months. There are many advantages to vacationing at an all-inclusive resort down south… here are just a few of the reasons we love this type of travel:

Easy to Plan.

Easy to Plan

A beach vacation, and particularly an all-inclusive package, is about the easiest kind of vacation to plan. We have enough to think about each and every day, especially as parents, why not keep things as simple as possible? With one phone call to our Travel Experts, you’ll get every aspect of your trip arranged – the flights, the airport transfers in your destination of choice, the resort, all of your drinks and meals, activities and entertainment. All you really have to do once you’ve booked is pack and show up at the airport for your flight south, everything else will be ready and waiting.

Budgeting is a breeze.

And a warm, tropical breeze at that! But seriously though, along with taking all the guesswork out of planning, a beach vacation to an all-inclusive resort is generally pretty cost effective and, since you plan and pay for everything upfront, it’s easy to budget for too. You pay in advance, in Canadian dollars, and once you arrive at your resort, you can pretty much leave your wallet in the safe all week long.

Some of our customers’ favourite budget- and family-friendly hotels include the Iberostar Varadero in Cuba, the Memories Splash Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, or the Blue Bay Grand Esmeralda in Riviera Maya, Mexico.

Kids love it.

Kids love a beach vacation. It’s easy and carefree for them! They get to spend days playing on the beach, in the pool, or in the kids’ club (depending on their ages). They get to meet other kids their age, and generally enjoy the freedom that comes without any set schedules (who doesn’t?!).

Some of our favourite resorts with Kids’ Clubs that our customers rave about include the Occidental Grand Xcaret and the Barcelo Maya Beach, both in Riviera Maya, Mexico as well as the excellent Beaches Negril, located on the white sands of Seven Mile Beach in Jamaica.

The weather.

It is winter here in Canada, which tends to stretch out and feel like a really long, cold slog, so a little break in that – a week or two in some heat, under a sun, on a beach, in the pool – can be so rejuvenating. You unwind and relax and return renewed and re-energized.

So much to choose from!


There really is a resort for everyone, no matter the destination. It just really depends on your preferences. Want to be somewhere that is right in the action? No problem. Want something more quiet and removed? We’ve got that too! Are you kids a bit older and you want to make sure there are things for them to see and do? We’ve got just the place!
