There’s nothing better than the thrill of going on a vacation. It could be the idea of going 35,000 feet in the air and arriving in a new country within 24 hours, but there’s much more to it. Keep reading, this post will take you on a journey of what to expect when you travel.

For me, choosing where to go can be a bit of a challenge. Everyone has different experiences and picking a travel destination can depend on your goals, what you’ve done, and when you’ll go next.

If you’re a first-time traveler, I’d recommend an all-inclusive Caribbean vacation. From North-America you can be in the Caribbean anywhere between 4 to 6 hours by plane. Most packages that you get, include a bus ride to and from the airport to your resort.

Seven nights is just the right amount of time and includes all your necessities to have a great time in a foreign land. Included with all-you-can-eat buffets for each meal and snack bars in between, resorts also include limitless alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. If buffet isn’t your thing, many sit-down restaurants are available for all your dining pleasure. You basically have everything you need to live for a relaxing sandy vacation.

Waking up to have bright turquoise water within your view, met with soft white sand and pools with live music is undoubtedly a treat. It’s truly a Caribbean party. Speaking of party, they also have nightly entertainment to keep the evening going and the drinks flowing.

Want more day activities? The resorts all sell extra packages called excursions that take you off your resort. To see some common Caribbean excursions, click here. This is the one of the few things that you pay for on this vacation. The prices may vary depending on where you are but are generally the same. Resorts offer personal tours of the local area with groups of people from your resort and others in the area.  The types of tours include: a jeep safari tour, fishing off the ocean, swimming with the dolphins, and so much more. These memories are often the best part of any vacation because it takes you off the resort and makes the trip more personal.

With this type of beach vacation, you can do what you like when you like, whether that be explore the town, go hiking on a nearby trail, or enjoy a cappuccino with the rising sun.
