The best part? It's all-inclusive, so the introductory rate includes accommodations, all meals, unlimited cocktails, equipment and instruction for certain land and water sports activities, hotel taxes and even tips.

The resort, part of the SuperClubs chain, offers more than 200 rooms and 15 suites with ocean and pool views, the world's only see-through-bottom Jacuzzi, a four-story waterslide, three pools and spa facilities.

Don't put away your Snooki costume just yet.

Now you can extend your Halloween fun beyond its Oct. 31 sell-by date with mid-November jaunt to Salem, the infamous Massachusetts town where a coven of supposed witches were tried and executed in the 1690s.

With that kind of history, it's no wonder Salem attracts plenty of people with more than a passing interest in witchcraft and the paranormal. The Weekend of the Witch, which will be held from Nov. 12 to 14 and is open to all ages, is a group vacation that explores Salem's tragic - and magic - past.

The package includes hotel accommodations for two nights and admission to all attractions on the tour, including visits to the House of the Seven Gables, the inspiration for the Nathanial Hawthorne novel, and a visit to The Witch Dungeon Museum.

There will also be some personal time set aside for shopping - and perhaps some paranormal investigations of your own.

The cost is $499 per person based on double occupancy; meals and travel to and from Salem are not included. For more details, go to www.toursandevents.com/wotw.htm.
