It’s true--the Caribbean offers almost as many cultures and natural wonders to enjoy as there are islands dotting its turquoise waters. From
sophisticated St. Barth and laid-back Jamaica to vibrant St. Martin and the sleepy Turks & Caicos, there’s something for every traveler.
The same holds true for places to stay in the Caribbean. Whether you choose a full-service beachfront resort, a luxury all-inclusive, or a family-style
villa resort, you can be assured of plenty of options. You even can opt for a fully staffed private villa--less expensive than you might think--where
you’re waited on hand and foot. Your staff might include a personal cook, a butler, and a housekeeper who does double-duty as a babysitter at night.
You can count on Hideaways to help sort through the myriad choices with you and then plan your perfect Caribbean getaway.
The City of Light may be one of the most romantic places on earth for couples, but it's also the perfect destination for a girlfriends' getaway. The

When Hideaways member Dr. Tom Fiutak of White Bear Lake, Minnesota, was invited to be the keynote speaker at an event held at the Acropolis Museum
in Athens, he couldn't resist the chance to take a week-long side trip with his wife, Colet, to the mesmerizing country of Morocco. "As a founding member
of Mediators Beyond Borders, I was invited to address a group called together by Greece's Ministry of Justice," Tom explained. "Since we'd come that far
and Colet had never been to Africa--and I'd always wanted to get to Morocco during my travels but hadn't--it seemed like the perfect opportunity."
Summertime and family vacations just seem made for each other . . . warm, sun-filled days, the promise of adventure, and time to reconnect with those we
love. But let's face it, the dynamics of traveling with kids—whether they're toddlers or in their teens—are much different from those of a romantic
couple's retreat. To help you plan, here are some options for just-right ways to enjoy a family vacation.
