Heading to the two Margaritaville Vacation Club by Wyndham properties in the Caribbean, I found some unknowns actually made the trip much more exciting. For one, I had never been to the Caribbean before, and I had dreams of clear water and sandy beaches. The other was I knew pretty much nothing about the Margaritaville brand. Maybe it’s because I’m not very fond of country music, but I also had no idea who Jimmy Buffett was — sorry Mr. Buffett.
Buffett is the founder of Margaritaville, who turned his song about melting your troubles away by “nibblin’ on sponge cake” and “wastin’ away in Margaritaville” into an empire. Yet, the two Margaritaville Vacation Clubs I visited, one in Puerto Rico and the other in St. Thomas, had very distinct differences. And depending on how you like to vacation, you may be tempted to choose one over another.
