Why would I buy a timeshare?
Securing your vacations makes good financial sense. You lock in the cost of tomorrow’s travel at today’s price. Buying a Fixed Time membership also assures you the villa you want at the time of year you like. And you can always trade your villa for a different time or location if you so choose.

Is buying a resale less expensive?
At some resorts, yes, because lots of unhappy owners want out. At Cascadas, we work hard to keep our members happy, and when life changes and they need to sell, we help members find a new buyer by offering resale inventory right alongside the unsold inventory. Pricing is the same. We offer every buyer the same incentives and discounts to purchase, and we can finance most any purchase with low down and low monthly payments.

With all the resorts available, why should I join Club Cascadas?
If you’ve stayed with us, you know why. If you haven’t stayed with us, we invite you to come down for a week. Experience our beautiful resort and friendly staff. Talk to other members. See for yourself Cascadas is an absolutely beautiful paradise.

Can I get pricing and availability details without sitting through a formal presentation?
Yes. Simply call us toll free at 1-888-846-5571, or send us an e-mail to and we’ll be happy to answer your questions. No pressure. No gimmicks.

How do we use our time?
There are lots of options. You can spend the time at your home resort; you can exchange your time to another resort; you can exchange your time for a different time at your home resort; or you can deposit it for use next year. Believe it or not, you can even use next year’s week this year.

What if we want to exchange for another week or another resort?
You need to contact Trading Places International and deposit your week with them. If you are going to another Trading Places resort, you can deposit your time with them at the same time you make your reservation.

Do we have to know which resort we want to exchange into at the time we deposit?
No. But the earlier you request a specific location, the more likely you are to get it.

Sometimes we can’t take a vacation and other times we can take more than one week. Is there anything we can do about that?
There sure is. Through TPI you can save this year’s week and use it next year along with that year’s week. Or, you can use next year’s week along with this year’s. Also, don’t forget you can often rent additional time at the resort where you’re staying. It’s a great way to extend your vacation. And, sometimes you can get better flight arrangements by traveling on a different day. If you do, just rent the additional time you need.

We have Fixed Time. Do we need to make a reservation?
No, not exactly. That is, you don’t need to make a reservation, but you must let Trading Places know of your vacation plans, whether you want to use your week or to exchange or rent it, as you’ll need a confirmation of this.

What if we can’t use our week at all? Can we carry it over to next year?
No. At least not without giving it to Trading Places first. They can accrue it for you and allow you to use it within the next two years.
