Destination

Unlike Cancun and Los Cabos, Puerto Vallarta was thriving long before tourists ever came to its ivory shores. After the Spanish Conquest, during which the native Aztatlan tribes were conquered, this area did not reenter the historical spotlight until the mid-19th century. Starting as a small fishing village named Las Peñas, the town steadily grew until it became a municipality in 1918 and was subsequently renamed Puerto Vallarta.

In the 1950s, writers and other artists from the United States sought this bucolic seaside hamlet as a refuge from political oppression, and in the late 1960s the Mexican government implemented a series of infrastructure improvements that made the city easily accessible by both land and air for the first time. Today, Puerto Vallarta is the second-most visited resort in Mexico.

Raintree’s Club Regina Los Cabos

Los Cabos is arguably the most naturally imposing and beautiful of all Mexican balnearios, and as such caters with equal aplomb to both the avid nature lover and the casual tourist. In the winter, you can watch a dozen species of whales breaching just off the coast; they travel to these warm waters during the colder months to birth their calves.
Overview

Club Regina Los Cabos rises above the shoreline where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean. Every unit faces the ocean and you can enjoy colorful sunsets and sunrises from your terrace. From November through March, it is unusual to not see whales playing in front of the resort. The resort is a mecca for those seeking the best under the Baja sun – from championship golf courses to some of the best sports fishing in the world.

Los Cabos includes the cities of San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas. In the center of San Jose del Cabo find art centers offering the works of both well-known and up-and-coming Mexican painters, sculptors and jewelry designers. Cabo San Lucas offers a wide variety of international and local culinary experiences as well as an incredible nightlife. This is where great memories begin.

Destination

When the Europeans arrived in what is today the municipality of Los Cabos, they found only a few nomadic hunter-gatherer tribes that were technologically inferior to the rest of the Mesoamerican peoples. These tribes eventually disappeared, and for four hundred years virtually no one lived there. Then, in 1917, an American company built a fishing operation in Los Cabos.

Word of its extraordinary natural beauty spread, and in 1974 the Mexican government chose Los Cabos and Cancun to be the sites for a new tourism industry in Mexico. The government built infrastructure there, and soon Los Cabos was thriving with prosperity. Today, Los Cabos is one of the most visited tourist destinations in Mexico and annually hosts the largest marlin-fishing tournament in the world. The "Los Cabos Corridor", as the area between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo is known, is particularly famous for its towering sea arches and abundant marine life.

Cancun is both a thriving nightlife hub and a gateway to the mystical world of the Maya.

Whether you want to try some of the local flavor or crave a taste of home, Inizio is the place to eat.

Destination

Long before it became a world-famous balneario, Cancun was a Mayan village. The name the Mayans gave the island means "Enchanted Snake". After the native population gradually departed, Cancun was essentially untouched for over four hundred years. Then, in 1970, the Mexican government took a risky gamble on the area and financed the construction of nine major hotels there. The rest is history, and today, after surviving the wrath of Hurricane Gilbert back in 1988, Cancun is an extremely popular tourist destination known for its beautiful beaches, vibrant night clubs, and safe tourist environment.

The Yucatan Peninsula holds the last remnants of the once-mighty Mayan civilization within its leafy tropical grasp. The famous Chichen Itza has eighteen ancient structures, the tallest of which is Pyramid Kulkulcan. During the spring and fall equinoxes, the setting sun creates shadows down the steps of the pyramid that resemble a slithering snake. Other fascinating and storied ruins in the area include Muyil, Tulum, and Uxmal.

Laurel Crest

In the foothills of the Smoky Mountains lies Laurel Crest, a cozy country haven less than a mile from the action of Pigeon Forge, but far enough away to offer rest and relaxation. You will feel ensconced by nature with the mountainous backdrop and beautifully landscaped grounds.

Take in snow-capped mountain views from one of the two outdoor hot tubs or grab the binoculars for some bird watching from the wraparound clubhouse deck. You can do the same from the comfort of your vacation home, as each vacation home has its own whirlpool tub and balcony terrace.

If you prefer to stay on site instead of going into town, there are numerous activities for kids year-round. While the kids are keeping busy at the playground or in the game room, you can bury yourself in a book, swim some laps in the indoor pool or work up a sweat in the fitness center and sauna.

If you’re at a loss to sort out where to go and what to do, our resort staff will help you with a vacation planning hour held every Monday. One popular suggestion: leave your car and explore the area by trolley.

Harbour Lights

As you approach Harbour Lights, the tree-lined drive and lighthouse invite you to a world without care. Situated along the Intracoastal Waterway less than five miles from the beach, the resort is an elegant seaside-style community. Colorful pastel buildings, nautical villa decor and a wrap-around porch at the clubhouse exude our low-country charm.

There’s plenty to do at Harbour Lights without even venturing to the nearby Grand Strand. Bike or walk along picturesque winding roads. Float effortlessly along our lazy river or bathe yourself in a coastal Carolina sunset from the hot tub.

Don’t feel like going to the beach? Then spend the day with the kids at the pool and our poolside bar, Knot’s (open seasonally). Relax with a “Key Lime Pie Smoothie” or a “South Carolina Tea" while the kids enjoy frozen fruit smoothies. And be sure to take a look at our food menu for great appetizers and combo meals or have an “I’m on Vacation Sundae.”

Our extensive activities program, either at the pool or in the kids’ clubroom, will entertain the kids year-round. Young ones can cool off from the summer heat by splashing around in the kiddie pool that has a fountain.

Harbour Lights is located within driving distance of outlet malls, terrific theaters, live entertainment and golf courses.
