- Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula (see photo) is where you'll find Cancun, Riveria Maya, and Cozumel. While Mexico tourism officials work to combat a negative media image, international travel to Mexico actually increased 20% through 2010. Both Cancun and Riviera Maya have been rated the No. 1 and No. 2 most safe places to visit in Mexico.
Cancun is known as "Mexico's Caribbean Jewel" and the entire Yucatan Peninsula offers the best that any Caribbean vacation can offer. Timeshare rentals here can start as low as $29/night.
- Bermuda is one of the most accessible islands to the U.S. - less than 2 hours away from the East Coast. Its sub-tropical climate, pink sand beaches, and clear, blue ocean waters make it a popular vacation destination. The island is also a top-rated scuba diving spot where divers can explore numerous wrecks and coral reefs in relatively shallow water with unlimited visibility.
Four airlines (American, Continental, JetBlue, and United) offer nonstop service from the U.S., some with fares as low as $69 each way from NYC. Timeshare rentals are available on Bermuda at the St. George's Club starting at just $100/night.
- Las Vegas is without a doubt the "Entertainment Capital of the World." This exciting city offers entertainment for everyone, including many free activities that children will enjoy. The erupting Mirage Volcano, the dancing Belagio Fountains, and the incredible laser light show on Fremont Street are just a few of these free attractions. Timeshare rentals can be found both on and off the Strip. You can stay at the Las Vegas Hilton for $79/night. Or stay off the Strip at the Carriage House for just $50/night.
- California's Central Coast is a spectacular region between San Francisco and Los Angeles. If you're looking for an alternative to the more highly trafficked California destinations, you've found it here. From a timeshare rental in the Montery Bay area in Carmel, Marina, or Pacific Grove, you can take the quintessential coastal drive along Route 1. The fee-based 17-Mile Drive winds through a forested area and along the oceanfront, passing Pebble Beach Golf Course, and the famed Lone Cypress tree. Paso Robles has more than 180 family-run wineries where wine often costs one-third the prices of Napa Valley.
