Best Romantic Destinations
November 27, 2013
There are so many wonderful romantic destinations to choose from, and everyone has their preference. Some people find a city break more romantic than a beach vacation, while others prefer to snuggle up in cooler climates by a log fire. Below are just some of the best romantic destinations.
Cozy Winter Breaks
Taking a vacation in a colder climate has its appeal and can be very intimate and cozy. For example, navigating the icy inlets of the Chilean Fjords while exploring the splendor of Patagonia is a once in a lifetime opportunity and one that will give lovers memories to treasure forever.
Skiing in places like Aspen, USA, Bariloche, Argentina or St. Moritz, Switzerland also provide the setting for an intensely romantic experience, snuggled in front of a log fire by night after a hard day skiing or snowboarding.
Romantic Beach Vacations
Many people think that a honeymoon or romantic getaway should be about lying on powder-soft sands and drinking cocktails in paradise. The Caribbean and the Indian Ocean offer a host of idyllic destinations such as the Seychelles, Bahamas, Mauritius and so on.
Mexico is also renowned for a number of romantic destinations that attract honeymooners and weddings, such as Cancun, Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta.
Immersed in culture, art and fine dining, many people associated cities with romance, especially the traditional destinations like Paris, Rome, Venice and St Petersburg. However, there are many other cities that also have a particularly romantic vibe, although you might not consider them at first thought. Destinations such as Amsterdam, Marrakech or Buenos Aires are high on the list of popular romantic city getaways.
All Inclusive Packages in Cancun
November 13, 2013
There are many benefits from all inclusive packages in Cancun, which is why Cancun is one of the most popular destinations in Mexico for all inclusive vacations, alongside Cabo San Lucas in Baja California and Nuevo Vallarta on the Pacific Coast.
Value for Money
Firstly, all inclusive packages in Cancun are widely available at super prices. Healthy competition between excellent hotels and resorts means that you can get amazing deals, especially if you book with plenty of time. On top of which, all inclusive vacations can work out to save you money, depending on how much you would spend on food and drinks. Families find that it is a great way of economizing, especially if you can get a deal where under 12s are free or half-price.
One of the main attractions of opting for an all inclusive resort is how relaxing it is to know that you have paid for your vacation up front. All you have to do is enjoy the food and order whatever you want from the menu or buffet. It also takes away an awkwardness about the check if you are traveling with friends or family. Families don’t have to plan their day around everyone’s hunger tantrums, everyone can eat as and when they feel hungry.
Cancun is in an enviable location on the Caribbean coast of Mexico. It benefits from all the amazing features of the Caribbean combined with the depth and wonders of the Mexican culture. Moreover, all around Cancun are fascinating sites of archaeological and historical interest as the remains and pyramids of the Mayan Empire can be visited within easy reach of Cancun’s hotels.
You can be sure of quality in Cancun. It is famed for being a world class destination, and rightly so. The resorts and hotels have to live up to the reputation of the city, with competition meaning that hotels cannot afford to slack. The selection of all inclusive resorts is incredible, with many like Villa del Palmar Cancun now offering gourmet-inclusive packages to compete with local fine-dining venues.
