Travel, Universal Orlando

I’ve visited Universal Orlando four times this year and have sent countless clients since the re-opening. One of the things I love about Universal Orlando is there is truly something for everyone in a Universal Orlando vacation. From budget to luxury and everything in between, Universal can be enjoyed with your family, extended family, friend group, as an adult-only trip – however you want to do it! And believe it or not, despite being a “theme park” vacation, you can 100% do a luxury Universal Orlando trip if you are looking for a full-service, VIP, high end getaway!

This summer, our family vacation time was limited to five nights. Yes, just five nights that my kids crazy summer schedules were both free so we could do a little getaway. We decided that a relaxing beach vacation would be perfect for a five night trip, and I had been wanting to experience an Iberostar property. I have sent lots of guests to Iberostar Selection Cancun (and the adults only Coral Tower) so I knew this would be a solid choice. We had the most wonderful vacation and I keep reading for my full Iberostar Selection Cancun Review.

Last week, I had the best time at Beaches Negril with my 14-year old son. Since he wasn’t enrolled in too many camps this summer, we decided a mother-son trip was in order! We wanted to go somewhere new, with lots of activities for a teen, but I also wanted a smaller resort where we could go our own ways and not worry about having to hunt each other down. I knew Beaches Negril would be perfect for this type of trip, and we truly had the best time. I am so excited to share my Beaches Negril Review with you and help you decide if Beaches Negril would be perfect for your next family getaway
