Beaches Resort & Sesame Workshop; A Match Made in Caribbean Heaven


All this cold weather has me dreaming about a Caribbean vacation and bringing up fond memories of our time at the amazing Beaches Negril.  Perfectly timed, Beaches invited us to celebrate with them at the beautiful Bryant Park, overlooking the ice skating rink.  Beaches has a lot to celebrate this coming year, and we can’t wait to share in the celebration!
Not only is Beaches celebrating 32 years of providing award-winning vacation experiences to families everywhere, but they are also celebrating their 10- year partnership with Sesame Workshop, the non-profit educational organization behind Sesame Street. Together with Sesame Workshop, Beaches has added several exciting activities exclusive to their resorts.

IMG_20131112_125147327_HDRBeaches Resorts are known for their family-friendly atmosphere.  As part of their Sesame Street sponsorship, they are the only Caribbean resort to offer an educational, engaging, and learning through play experience featuring the characters we all know and love. With Elmo, Cookie Monster, Grover, Zoe, Bert and Ernie, Abby Cadabby, The Count, Big Bird, and now Oscar the Grouch, your child is guaranteed to enjoy the company of his or her favorite character. Other exciting activities on-site include Baking with Cookie Monster, Story time with Elmo, and the Sesame Street Carnival Celebration, where your children will be able to sing and dance with their favorite characters or Oscar’s ‘From Trash to Treasure’ Activity, where your children will be able to turn everyday trash into wonderful, creative treasures. There is truly something for every age and every child. It’s amazing to think that even while on vacation, your kids will be learning through music, building, magic, and their own imagination, while you get the chance to relax and enjoy your vacation.


Beaches Resorts, in partnership with Sesame Workshop, has put an emphasis on teaching their staff how to keep your children engaged, excited, and learning. As Mel Ming, of Sesame Workshop put it, “Every moment with your child is a teaching moment”, and Beaches Resorts is all about creating special “moments” for your family.

A significant point to mention when discussing the fantastic staff at Beaches Resorts, is that through their programs with your children, the staff is also able to use the materials they’ve acquired while with the children at the resorts and bring them back to the local communities. This, in turn, aids in keeping the surrounding communities motivated to learn, gaining a fulfilling education, and a success in life.

With locations in Turks and Caicos, Jamaica, and a brand new resort soon to open in Barbados, there are so many new and exciting things for families to experience. With the largest water parks in the Carribean, state of the art XBOX ® Play Lounge, the Scratch DJ Academy, Kids Camps, Teen Clubs, Certified Nannies, Butler Service and Red Lane® Spa, no other location in the Caribbean can compare.  If this isn’t enough activities for you and your family, the Caribbean Adventure with Sesame Street®  runs live action weekly stage shows, you and your family will never run out of fun activities.

We’re looking forward to checking another Beaches Resorts and getting in on all the fun and excitement, and we will be sure to report our adventurous experience back to you when we do!
