In reply to info about the Canaries, what can I say? As it is only a four hour flight from England many Brits go there on holiday. It's very hard to be objective as this is now considered to be a "local resort" and whilst lovely in their own way, don't represent the excitement to us that going to the States or indeed the Caribbean would. We have met one or two people in The Canaries from your part of the world, who have thought that they were great. I suggest you look on other forums for an insight into what other Americans or Canadians think. The only thing that does spoil some resorts in the Canaries (in my opinion) is the rowdyness of some people indulging in too much alcohol. I hear there are similar problems in some parts of Cancun. They are scenically beautiful, but please do your research first to find the resort to suit you!
