Awesome Spring Break!
Meridith planned an exceptional vacation for our family of five. From the morning (but not too early) non-stop departure, the fabulous all-inclusive resort, and the tour coordinator who was present as we arrived at our destination- everything was taken care of. We were able to enjoy sun, relaxation and family time instead of worrying about all the travel details
