vary from town to town. Being in an area during a celebration
can provide added color and fun to your vacation.

TIP: One problem, however, is that many businesses
close during festivals, and this can be frustrating if you
are caught unawares. It’s best to check the dates with a
local tourist board before you arrive, just to make sure.

This resort is easy on the pocketbook and still offers couples
plenty of activity. The rooms here are separated from the beach
by the golf course, but some days you can still hear the waves
rolling in on the Atlantic side, which is too rough for snorkeling
but nice for a romp in the surf.

Special Features/Activities: beachfront, all-inclusive, casino,
golf, tennis, watersports.
