Words really don't feel like enough, but today they feel so necessary. At Dreams and Destinations our job is so much more than just planning a great vacation. It is our opportunity to play a small role in connecting people and places globally. We find diversity of people and cultures, both at home in the US and worldwide, to be incredibly beautiful in their uniqueness. Our diversity as humans is something to be celebrated and a strength to build on. We all bring something different to the table. We do not believe for one second our differences should be something used to instill hate or fear or oppression, as many (heartbreakingly) have experienced throughout their lives. We believe each person was created for a greater purpose and each life holds tremendous value.
Today we don't have all the answers, but we know being silent is not an option. We are going to figure out where we can most effectively use our voice, and best impact change starting here at home. And we are going to continue to bring people together through travel because getting to know each other, listening to each other, and exploring outside our comfort zones are crucial for this world we love to become a place for all of us.

It’s easy! Blast the song, sing along, and record yourself. When you’re done, post your video tagging @sandalsresorts #SandalsStateofMind and count the smiles you put on faces.
[04/01/20] We needed a virtual vacation to our favorite city today! Thanks to our friends at La Colección Resorts and Live Aqua Urban Resort San Miguel De Allende for taking us back! We had a chance to explore Live Aqua Urban Resort San Miguel last year and immediately fell head over heels with this brand new at the time hotel! Live Aqua San Miguel blends the art and architecture of San Miguel de Allende with a hint of contemporary, lots of relaxation and some fun elements of chic whimsy (record players? claw foot tub with rubber ducky? Yes please!).
Close to the Fabrica La Aurora and walking distance to the Artisan Market, but with a tucked away resort atmosphere, Live Aqua is the perfect balance of location and escape. Enjoy the video and then check-out our Facebook album with our own photos of Live Aqua.
By the way...even if you are staying somewhere else Live Aqua is a must stop for cocktails and dinner (Zibu Allende 😋)

Normally we try to fill our accounts with fun photos and loads of travel inspiration. Today we decided to talk about travel insurance though. We know, we know.... say insurance and we can almost hear the groans and see the eye rolls. Over the years we've heard a lot of reasons why clients don't feel they need insurance
“I’m going on this trip no matter what”
“My whole family is healthy, I’m not worried about not being able to travel”
“My health insurance will cover me if anything happens”
“I have insurance through my credit card”
“I have never needed insurance I’ve purchased so I don’t think I need it now”
We’ve heard all of these and more. BUT have you ever thought about the “what ifs”? What if something did happen? What if you did need it? Foreign health systems do not work like emergency rooms in the USA, you are not entitled to assessment and treatment regardless of your ability to pay. Your US health insurance in most cases will also not reimburse for foreign health care.
Have you researched your options? Are you sure your credit card has insurance to cover your package? A number of cards only cover rental vehicles and travelers may find that they didn’t have coverage for medical, trip cancellation or interruption when they thought they did.
Ask any travel advisor and you will hear story after story of the unexpected and how insurance saved the day, or lack of insurance created issue after issue. We all have a list of things we’ve seen happen that add value to protecting your trip. Last week though, one of our own got to add personal experience to her list of reasons to purchase insurance. Something as simple as a missed step with a trip + fall led to daily clinic visits, follow-up treatment in the US and medical costs that were higher than the combined cost of her few years of travel insurance policies that she didn’t use. Every day her insurer’s medical team checked in with her (thanks @travelguard !) And when there was a question of being cleared to fly she was able to rest easy knowing they would step in and get her home medically if she couldn’t fly commercially.
At the end of the day it didn’t matter about all of the other times she purchased insurance and didn’t use it. What did matter, is when in fact insurance was needed, it was there. So the next time you think of waiving insurance think about the “what ifs” and if you (or your family) would be prepared to cover the cost.
THEN plan your next trip and get that insurance! 🌐 ❤️

Do you know when you purchase a vacation from a large, internationally known, online travel site you are actually purchasing from a virtual travel agency? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Why not purchase that same vacation through a local travel agency and support a small business who takes the time to really get to know you and your travel preferences? A local business who cares about and gives back to their community? A business who always has you in mind when they are looking for the best experience for the best value? Did you know many local travel agencies price as good, if not better than the online travel giants? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Don't forget to #shopsmall today and everyday and check out our stories this week for some truly incredible travel deals!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What time did your Black Friday start? Did you just roll out of bed or were you scoring deals long before daylight? Still shopping or done by the time the sun came up? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our phones started ringing early today (don't worry! We brewed our STRONG holiday coffee) and we've been hard at work creating perfect holiday gifts. The gift of travel is always one of the best gifts under the tree!
"For each new morning with its light, For rest and shelter of the night, For health and food, for love and friends, For everything Thy goodness sends." -- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Wishing you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving! ❤️
