As the Florida heat continues to rise, we’re all looking for a little summer escape.

Here are our vacation picks:

Costa Rica

Mainly for the surf. But the food and island vibe aren’t bad either.


For cooler temps, solid family time (Anne Marie is from there) and favorite pubs.


For the proximity, wildlife (aka. night-life!) and exclusivity.

Dominican Republic

For the food, local flare and remoteness.

Boca Grande

For the quaint little town, west coast sea breeze and sunsets and sand bar hopping.

St. Thomas

For the boats, fishing excursions and island drinks.
