Destination Suggestions

I'm looking for some suggestions on destinations please?

It's just my husband and I traveling - we love the warm weather and beaches. A few years ago we went to Playa del Carmen, Mexico and we've gone also to Cozumel- LOVED THEM! great places and great prices.

We may go back again, but thought i'd look for other locations and good price locations. A friend has recommend St. Lucia, but so far it looks like 40% more to travel there than Playa Del Carmen area.

Also looking for Mid-July Early August travel (dates are flexable)


Great warm locations

Beaches. water and sun a must

good pricing for travel

also really love all-inclusive

i am not very good with mexico, as i have tried some really great "new" places.

sounds like mexico is what you want for the price. the other members can give advice on the carribean, but if you are interested in ferrying around a couple of greek islands, turkish or croatiian coast...let me know.

there are some great AI in fiji , but the airfare may kill you. but that is one of the best places in the world.

there are also cheap airfares to thailand right now, and hanging out on the thai islands is cheap, great food and wonderful sand and sun.

Well, first, you haven't really shared much about your interests beyond warm and beach. Are you into snorkling or scuba? Watersports? Eco travel (ie. rainforests)? There are a lot of options - Puerto Rico, Bahamas, US Virgin Islands, Barbados, Belize, St. Kitts, Aruba. I believe most offer AI packages, but some more widely than others. Pricing will undoubtedly be different based on supply and demand - and air options - as well as time of year. You may want to get on a site like http://matrix.itasoftware.com and compare airfare pricing.

If you are looking for an inexpensive location and all inclusive, I recommend Punta Cana or Jamaica. Other islands with a choice of all inclusive resorts are Barbados, St. Lucia, Antigua, and Aruba. In general, these islands will be more expensive than Mexico, DR, and Jamaica.

Your time frame falls in the middle of hurricane season, so prices should be at a low point (except for Aruba which is not in the hurricane belt).
