When you’ve had one of those days (weeks?) where all you want to do is jump on a plane and head to white sands and turquoise waters, but don’t have the liquidity to drop $500 a night on a Miami resort, head to Groupon.
They have tons of travel deals for beautiful beaches around the world. Here are just a handful of the best ones, but hurry – they won’t last forever!
Villa del Mar Beach Resort & Spa, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – $55 a night
Want to hop on down to Mexico? You can grab a gorgeous hotel room for two for just $55 a night (!!!). You can choose to stay in a junior villa suite or one-bedroom villa suite, and the promotion is offering dates into December. This will give you time to coordinate your airfare, but if you have to pay a little more, it’s okay–you got the hotel room for a song. Deal expires May 31.
Beach Break Resort, Jacó, Costa Rica – from $240
If Mexico isn’t your jam, Costa Rica is just a little bit farther and equally gorgeous. This package offers a 3-, 5-, or 7-night stay for two people (with an optional all-inclusive package) in the exquisite province of Puntarenas.
Added bonus: Groupon guests get 50 percent off surf lessons at the resort’s daily surf camp. One important detail – you have to take this vacay before September 30 of this year or the deal is off. It shouldn’t be too hard to convince your travel partner to sneak on down to Costa Rica, though! Deal expires June 16.
Gran Meliá Golf Resort, Río Grande, Puerto Rico – from $309
If the thought of 18 holes on American soil doesn’t thrill you, pack your clubs and head to Puerto Rico instead. You can save 47 percent on your visit to this gorgeous 4-star resort and book a 3-, 4- or 5-night stay for two. The resort is located directly on sandy beaches and has tons of space for swimming in the Caribbean Sea.
When you’re not golfing, you can also swim in the oceanfront pool, kayak or plan rainforest hikes, tours of Old San Juan, and snorkeling trips. There are some blackout dates, so be sure to read the fine print before you book. Deal expires July 2.
Fun Holiday Beach Resort, Negril, Jamaica – from $68 a night
Head down to Jamaica, mon, and stay in a beautiful resort for a steal. You can opt for an all-inclusive package, or just purchase the room rate. On top of that, up to two kids 5 or younger stay free – so bring the whole family if you want (or just you; self-care is important). The resort is located directly on Jamaica’s beautiful Seven-Mile beach which is beloved for exquisite white sand, dramatic cliffs, and coral reefs lying just offshore in the Caribbean. Deal expires June 4.
The Presidential Suites, Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic – from $167 a night
Score this all-inclusive stay for two, with daily VIP access, for under $200 a night! The all-inclusive package includes all meals, snacks, and drinks (with taxes and tips covered), as well as golf and nightly entertainment. The VIP access gets you into an exclusive area of the beach, the VIP sports bar, and a pool not open to the rest of the resort public. This is the perfect chance to relax and unwind in total luxury (for a very non-luxe price). This package offers dates into December, but airfare is not included. Deal expires June 4.
