Five Reasons to Visit St. Lucie this Winter

Club Med Sandpiper and the Courtyard Marriott on Hutchinson Island are perfect stays for the whole family or couples just looking to get away. At Club Med, family friendly programming for kids from infant ages all the way up to teenagers is a great amenity. Couples will love the adult-only infinity pool and the L’Occitane Spa. And everyone visiting Club Med will enjoy special activities such as learning to sail, stand up paddle boarding, and daring to fly the trapeze. This all-inclusive resort (the only in the country!) is worth the getaway.

At Courtyard Marriott on Hutchinson Island, wake up to the waves and walk to them too. Some of the dozens of activities include snorkeling, games by the pool or simply relaxing under the sun while enjoying lunch from Latitudes Tiki Bar & Grill.
