There's no need to choose between the Caribbean beach or a tropical rain forest: Have both the ocean and the jungle on this week's Escape to the Wyndham Rio Mar Beach Resort in Puerto Rico.
Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the El Yunque National Forest, this lush hideaway is the perfect site for a four- ($450) or seven- ($788) night stay for two adults and two children (ages 17 and under) in a mountain-view room.
Children enjoy complimentary meals from the Kids' Menu, and all guest activities and enrichment programs—including nature walks, bird-watching, sea turtle nesting encounters (seasonal), stargazing and bonfires (seasonal), and "dive-in movies" screened at the pool with popcorn and soda.
No compromises have been made in the richly appointed guest room that will become your private haven. Lounge on your furnished balcony enjoying spectacular views of the verdant mountains.
Satisfy a wide variety of appetites at the resort's eight restaurants: Hang with your crew at the ocean-side Tiki Bar & Grill or indulge in upscale dining at Palio.
Located on the coast about 30 minutes east of San Juan, this 500-acre property shines when it comes to recreational activities—offering something for everyone. Stroll along the mile of palm-lined beach that Fodor's calls "one of the resort's gems" or get active with motorized (or non-motorized) rentals from the Water Sports Hut.
Sun poolside at the tranquil adult pool or splash in the enormous activity pool with a waterslide and complimentary organized activities. Indulge in a treatment at the Mandara Spa, rally at the tennis courts, tee up at two championship golf courses, or get lucky at the casino.
When you get the desire to explore your surroundings, tours are available for history buffs as well as adventure fiends. Arrange to walk the cobblestone streets of Old San Juan, dabble at the Bacardi rum distillery, or get an adrenaline jolt mountain biking or riding ATVs in the rain forest.
Ignore those who say you can't have it all when it comes to a getaway, and consider this week's Escape a one-stop shop for the whole family.
