Club Med Beckons Again

The weather here in Vancouver has been unseasonably cold recently. For example, two weeks ago, the temperature dipped to about -6 degrees Celsius and, with the wind chill factor, weathermen said it would feel closer to -17 degrees Celsius. And then last week, we had a windstorm. Last Wednesday, winds were said to approach 100 kilometres per hour. Thursday was slightly better. This, at a time when Spring should be just around the corner and when temperatures are supposed to be closer to plus 9 degrees Celsius. Overall, it has been a miserable couple of weeks and it has made me think about Club Med’s offerings of resorts in warmer climes. A vacation where the sun is shining and the beaches are inviting is real appealing right now.

I had considered Club Med several years ago. They have a variety of resorts, depending upon your age and interests. For example, some resorts cater more to the hard-partying crowd, while others are intended for people who are not so much into the hard partying. Now that I have small children, I am certainly keeping my eyes open for vacations that are family-friendly. Fortunately, Club Med offers some resorts that are family-oriented. For example, Club Med Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic is referred to as a Baby Club Med but actually offers a lot for older children too. Like other resorts, it features beaches and beach activities, plus a skateboard park and teenager hangout. I am definitely going to explore more of what they have to offer.
