Good prices, great places - the hard part is choosing
With over 60-million people visiting Florida each year and a huge winter snowbird population, Florida is a desirable place to visit. It's ideally located between the Gulf of Mexico, the Straits of Florida and the Atlantic Ocean, and is in close proximity to the Caribbean . Even though Florida 's nickname is the Sunshine State , the weather can be volatile. The central area is the lightening capital of the US , plus there are the infamous tornadoes and hurricanes (June 1st - November 30th , generally). So before you invest in a Florida timeshare make sure the structure is properly insured to meet your needs.
To be honest, there is so much to see and do in Florida that choosing a stationary timeshare may not be in your best interest. There are always really great deals like the short Fairfield Getaway's in Orlando, but Fairfield also has different timeshare options available, which end up being cheaper for families in the long run.
There are far too many great timeshare options to be listed here, but we have highlighted a couple of our favorites:
Hyatt Vacation Club Key West, Florida
The Hyatt Windward Pointe Resort has 92 units with a swimming pool, volleyball court, croquet pitch and a large hot tub
Locally, there are bars, bike trails, marinas, golf courses, scuba diving, parasailing, tennis courts and live entertainment
The two bedroom units have a whirlpool spa, fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and internet hook-up
You can rent bikes, use barbecues or do your laundry on site
A gold package timeshare resale can cost about $19,000 with maintenance fees costing about $900
Wyndham Palms Resort and Country Club - Kissimmee , Florida
We included this property because it is the crème de la crème of timeshares. This five-star resort in the heart of Florida is sure to tug on everyone's heartstrings. The Wyndham Palms Resort and Country Club promises you the ultimate luxurious vacation. Whether spending the day at Disney World or at top-of-the-line golf courses, you can't go wrong.

On-site, you can wish the day away playing tennis, basketball or volleyball. Lounge by the pool and entice your palate at fine restaurants.
