Unique Tropical Escapes Designed for You

One size does not fit all when it comes to beach getaways.
Your travel experiences should be as unique as you are.


Don't Let Disappointment Ruin Your Vacation

Different people have different ideas about what makes the "perfect" beach getaway.

For some, it's an umbrella drink delivered by a butler to a private plunge pool in a 5-star resort. For others, it's hiking two miles to a secluded beach with epic snorkeling. And everything in between.

Wading through all the options to find what's right for you can be overwhelming and stressful. Which destination best matches your ideal vision? Which activities are worth paying for and which ones aren't? How can you be sure you won't be disappointed?

You need an expert who can tell you, honestly, if a particular destination, resort, or activity will offer the kind of experience YOU want. At Beach Bum Getaways, we've spent more than a decade crafting exceptional escapes for beach-loving couples, families, and groups of all kinds.


We take the guesswork out of planning relaxing vacations so you can actually relax.

What We Offer

Experiences That Exceed Expectations

Have you ever been disappointed by a vacation you thought would be amazing?

You're not alone.

Many of our clients have struggled with planning their own beach getaways... spending tons of time researching options and booking everything online, only to be disappointed by the entire experience. The resort didn't match the marketing. The room type was all wrong. Their "ocean view" was misrepresented. The beach was not what they had imagined. And the list goes on.

Over the past 16 years, we have helped thousands of "beach bums" avoid these pitfalls, escape the worries of daily life, and immerse themselves in tropical beauty.

You're excited to create life-long memories with your children and grandchildren, but the planning piece can be overwhelming. There's so much to consider. Which destinations are the most family-friendly? When is the best time to go? Which resorts have the best kid's clubs? The best beaches? The safest activities? Don't worry. We can answer all these questions and more.

Take Your Tropical Escape to the Next Level

Hi! I'm Jamie Root, founder of Beach Bum Getaways.

We believe that every tropical escape should be as unique as you are...We also understand how challenging it can be to make that happen. We've heard so many stories about ruined vacations caused by silly mistakes and bad decisions.

But with so much information out there—much of it unreliable—it's almost impossible to know if you're making good decisions.


That's where we come in...

For the past 16 years, we have been helping couples, families, and groups plan their dream beach vacations, weddings, and honeymoons.

My team and I spend a significant amount of time and effort vetting the places we recommend. We personally tour destinations and resort properties around the world. We build relationships with resort managers, general staff, and other key personnel. All to ensure your experience exceeds your expectations.

We listen to what you want so we can share practical advice, match you with the beach getaway that's right for you, and provide unparalleled support throughout every step of the process.

Also, as a Virtuoso member, we can offer special perks—like guaranteed room upgrades and resort credits—at some of the world's best resorts.

We look forward to planning your next tropical escape and welcoming you to the Beach Bum family.

Travel Tips & Inspiration


What our clients are saying...

Beach Bum on a Budget helped us plan our dream wedding during the pandemic. After getting engaged in the Dominican Republic two years prior, we knew going back for our wedding would be perfect for us. Jamie was amazing and helped us through the whole process. Everything from our stay, airfare, transportation, and every last detail of our wedding was carefully planned for us and our guests. All the fear and stress of planning a wedding disappeared once I met Jamie. Our wedding turned out better than we could have ever imagined, and we have wonderful memories that will last a lifetime.
