It’s not exactly easy to stay trim this time of year, what with the pumpkin-flavored drinks and cakes and the cold weather that renders your gym card useless. But if you need a little inspiration to get back that bikini bod, here’s a winter deal for you:

Barceló Hotels & Resorts is offering up to 35 percent off all-inclusive stays at beachfront properties in Mexico, Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic.

Unlike typical “book by this date” promotions that limit the discount to a particular booking window, Barceló is giving travelers the freedom to make reservations on their own schedule.

Travelers can now book vacations to any all-inclusive resort in Mexico and the Dominican Republic for travel between now and April 30, or Costa Rica for travel between December 24 and April 30; and receive a percentage off based on how early it’s booked. The earlier the reservation is made – the greater the value.

Guests will receive the following discounts when reservations are made:

• More than 120 days in advance – 35 percent off

• Between 90 and 119 days in advance – 30 percent off

• Between 60 and 89 days in advance – 20 percent off

• Between 31 and 59 days in advance – 15 percent off

Enjoy, friends, and have a great weekend. I return Monday from chilly Schenectady with tales to tell.
