WHERE: ST. LUCIA or mexico?

HOW: PARADISE FOUND TRAVEL, OF COURSE! READ below...

Option #1 - St. Lucia

LOVELY ST. LUCIA: While some have their beaches, some their diving and others their music, only one island has it all. Saint Lucia is just 27 miles long and 14 miles wide, and lined with beautiful palm-fringed beaches. But beaches are just an introduction to the immense beauty Saint Lucia has to offer. If you’re feeling romantic, Saint Lucia is an ideal location. The annual World Travel Awards have declared their feelings by awarding St. Lucia as “World’s Leading Honeymoon Destination” an impressive eight times. In addition to romance, there are many rewarding ways to experience the island close-up: mountain biking through the rainforest, zip-lining, climbing a Piton, visiting cocoa, sugar and banana plantations, sailing on a pirate ship, or even driving into a volcano.
SANDALS GRANDE ST. LUCIAN SPA & BEACH RESORT: Located approximately 6 miles Northwest of the city of Castries, on a causeway between Pigeon Island National Landmark and Rodney Bay. This 301-room, 17 acre resort for couples only sits on a spectacular peninsula, surrounded by the warm Caribbean Sea. And of course, you can "stay at one, play at 3" with the exclusive Play at 3 Program. Your dining options expand to 27 restaurants. You can extend your diving experiences to exotic underwater playgrounds at two additional resorts. Enjoy the vibrant entertainment that's ever-changing from night to night at all three resorts. Complimentary round-trip transfers between all resorts are part of the Sandals Luxury Included difference.

ITINERARY

  • Monday, November 20, 2017: Depart Philadelphia International Airport at 06:00 AM. Arrive in Miami at 08:52 AM. Depart Miami at 11:07 AM and arrive in St. Lucia at 3:41 PM. Relax in the Sandals Lounge in the airport while awaiting your ride to your resort.
  • Transportation to Sandals Grande St. Lucian is included and is about an hour and 30 minute ride from the airport. Ideally located on its very own peninsula, Sandals Grande St. Lucian is often described as the "closest vacation to a picture-perfect postcard." Cradled to the west by Rodney Bay - boasting the calmest waters in all of Saint Lucia - and to the east by the majestic Atlantic Ocean, this magnificent resort showcases awe-inspiring panoramic views that will linger in your heart forever. Volcanic mountains draped in blankets of green rise majestically from an impossibly clear blue sea. A sheltered mile-long beach extends an open invitation for days of endless water play. This is paradise as it was meant to be, full of natural beauty, rich in history, and resplendent in pure romance. I included pricing for an entry level room (Rodney Bay Honeymoon Deluxe) and a Club level room (Swim-Up Lover's Lagoon Honeymoon Club Level). Club level rooms offer private check in, personalized resort orientation, access to a 24 hour lounge with all day snacks and pastries, and concierge assistance with booking private dinners, spa treatments, and tours.
  • Monday, November 20, 2017 to Saturday, November 25, 2017: No one knows how to throw a party like Sandals Grande St. Lucian. In a corner of the world known for celebrating life, you'll find yourself surrounded by everything that brings a smile to your face. Enjoy every water sport under the sun (including unlimited scuba diving). There are lively swim-up bars and nightclubs that will sweep you off your feet. Of course, Sandals has perfected the art of doing nothing, so feel free to do plenty of that, too.

Once home to small fishing villages, the Riviera Maya coastline has since been developed into a modern tourist corridor offering the very best of high-end luxury resorts, fine dining, nightlife, spa retreats, shopping and golf in Mexico. An ideal vacation destination, the Riviera Maya is home to some of the most stunningly beautiful beaches in all of Mexico with expansive stretches of powdery white sand lapped by the clear turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. The Riviera Maya is one of the world’s top destinations for scuba diving and snorkeling. An expansive coral reef system extending just off the coast is home to a dizzying array of marine life including colorful tropical fish, manta rays, dolphins and whale sharks. Scuba diving and snorkeling in the Riviera Maya are not limited to the ocean. You can also go snorkeling and cave diving in the many cenotes (underground sink holes) that are unique to this Yucatan Peninsula.
