While few things beat a family vacation, sometimes it's nice to get away from daily grind. For parents and caregivers, that means a break from the kids.
If you've reached your breaking point, or just want to reward yourself, these five resorts have you covered.
Where: Negril, Jamaica
Granted, nudist resorts aren't for everyone. If walking around in the buff is your thing, or you're at least open to trying it, this all-inclusive Jamaican resort is sure to put your mind and body at ease. In addition to stripping down, you can pretty much do anything you want at Hedonism II, from participating in free water sports to... well, you use your imagination.
The nightly music and entertainment also pair well with the resort's premium cocktail options.
If Hedonism II piques your interest but you don't want to risk a trip-long commitment, day and night passes are available for samplers.
Tradewinds Club at the Aruba Marriott Resort
Where: Palm Beach, Aruba
Compared to Negril's Hedonism II, a more traditional adults-only vacation experience can be found at the Aruba Marriott Resort's Tradewinds Club.
Just steps away from the beach, this hotel within a hotel boasts more than four dozen deluxe rooms, an adults-only beach and an adults-only pool featuring a swim-up bar. Guests here can also fill up on complimentary refreshments at the Club's private lounge.
This resort also possesses a plethora of nightlife options, including the Stellaris Casino and a handful of nearby restaurants and bars.
Where: St. James, Barbados
This 34-room boutique hotel's resume speaks for itself, having been inducted into TripAdvisor's Hall of Fame.
Jet lag revival massages and champagne breakfasts are just the start. The House is also perfect for a couple's getaway, offering couples massages and photo shoots as well as many other two-person activities.
Horseback riding is among the many outdoor activities offered here, while private tours and cruises can be arranged as well.
Tabacon Grand Spa Thermal Resort
Where: Arenal, Costa Rica
A tropical paradise for the nature lover, Costa Rica's overlooked Tabacon Grand Spa Thermal Resort provides relaxation the way Mother Nature intended.
Located at the base of the Arenal Volcano and surrounded by hundreds of acres of rainforest, you're sure to feel far away from home (and the kids). Looking for a few libations? You'll definitely find comfort in the adults-only Shangri-La garden, which boasts hanging cabanas and a full bar.
CasaMagna Marriott Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa
Where: Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Like the Tabacon Grand Spa Thermal Resort, Puerto Vallarta's CasaMagna Marriott Resort & Spa is kid-friendly but chock full of adult-friendly amenities.
The standout attraction at CasaMagna is the resort's La Cava wine cellar, where weekly tequila tastings are offered. What's more, this resort actually grows its very own blue agave on the property, where tequila sommelier Audrey Formisano educates guests about the popular distilled beverage's history in the region as well as the different varieties of tequila.
