In most cases, a timeshare can be forced back on the resort itself. They are in the best place to resell the timeshare to new buyers, and when pressed, they will often accept it back. (They may require a fee, but you can negotiate this).
Depending on where the timeshare is, it may be more or less marketable on the secondary market (just like any other form of real estate). Getting a reputable realtor to sell your timeshare is a good way to get rid of a property. Having reasonable expectations (timeshares do not generally hold value) can help, but be wary of scams (unfortunately there are a lot), check realtor licenses on the state board of realtors, and also check other third party sources (such as the BBB - do a location specific search for the city/region where the realtor/brokerage is located).
