Fun in the Sun Denise's Family VACAtion

Hi Denise, here is an updated quote of options for your family. The first two resorts are in Jamaica, and the final is Beaches Turks and Caicos. I based the quote on lowest cost in May at each resort (June is higher due to European school schedules starting summer break), thus please note the dates for each resort are different.

Jamaica begins with crystalline waters flowing over gardens of coral, lapping onto soft sandy beaches, then rising past red soil and lush banana groves into sheer mountains. This is powerfully beautiful country, captivating to the eyes and soul. Lush and green, with hidden waterfalls and tropical flowers everywhere, you will be spending a week in Paradise, the only question is - will you really want to come home?

Denise, I have not included a cruise option as I am waiting on Royal Caribbean to advise of accommodations that may be available for a family of five in May or June. The other option for a cruise is two staterooms, though this is not ideal for a young family.
