Luxury Travel: What is your top destination choice? Do you enjoy

a quaint log cabin, surrounded by magnificent mountain views, in world

class ski locales? Or are you the Avid golfer who likes to spend time

mastering the most challenging courses across the world? Maybe you live

for the excitement of city life found in some of the world's greatest

metropolitans. Over the years, after growing our portfolio to nearly 50

destinations world-wide, our yearly member surveys have told us that

most members prefer to the tropics for their getaways.

It is

easy to see why Members of Destination Clubs choose beaches and shores

as their number one destination choice. Vacationing in the world's most

desired tropical paradises offers travelers a true getaway from

everyday stress - with secluded beaches, endless activities, and local

fare. Below are two of the favorites from Ultimate Escapes Members and

some tips from their last vacation.

Nevis, BWI - British West Indies:

Named Dulcina, or Sweet Island, by early British Settlers, Nevis

remains an intimate Caribbean island where relaxation is the rule and

beauty is abundant. With the regal heights of Nevis Peak to the depths

of the clear blue Caribbean, there is so much for families to explore

on this secluded paradise. Charter a boat for a day and snorkel in the

crystal blue water while discovering the local marine life or scuba

dive directly into the sea life and explore sunken ships and natural

reefs! Other activities to enjoy include horseback riding on the shore,

a hike through the rainforest, a historical tour of sugar plantation

ruins from the late 1800's, or simply calming walks on the beach.

If there is a heaven, then it must be like Nevis -- we can't wait to go back- Susan Mansfield, Ultimate Escapes Member

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

As one of Mexico's top resort destinations, Cabo San Lucas is a perfect

combination of luxury, adventure and exotic history. It is considered

by Ultimate Escapes members as the ideal vacation destination for kids

and grownups alike. ATV Tours through the desert and to the beach,

Sunset beach tours by horseback, deep sea fishing in a destination

nick-named Marlin Capital of the world and catching the end journey

of a 6,000 mile migration of the gentle giants of the Sea of Cortez,

The Gray Whales, are just a short list of the endless number of

activities and adventures our members suggest.

Be sure to enjoy the local fare - there is a restaurant to experience

for every meal of the day. Enjoy Breakfast at The Office, Lunch at Cabo

Wabo Cantina, and Dinner at Ruth Chris. For those who enjoy cooking,

visit the local markets and pick up some of the local specialties and

put together an enjoyable meal for you and your family. There is

nothing better than enjoying delicious local cuisine in the beautiful

setting of Cabo San Lucas.

From your accommodations combined with the local attractions to the lure of the ocean, Cabo San Lucas cannot be beat!- Danette Stewart, Ultimate Escapes Member
