Working at a tropical beach resort can be among the most rewarding of all summer jobs. After all, where else can you work one minute and soak up some rays the next? In fact, many of the jobs are outdoors, so you just may get the best tan of your life! Remember Tom Cruise in Cocktail? Your summer will be just like that ;-)
