I have always wondered what do people consider to be an expensive vacation.
I am a 24 yr old married mother to 4 children so I have to be pretty budget minded.
When I take all 6 of us to cancun we will typically stay at a 4 star like gran caribe but now we have been booking dreams. I usually like to keep airfare and resort under 6000 for our family of 6 which is difficult.
When my husband and I go alone which is most of the time I feel affordable is 3500 or less for the two of us.
I usually book the royal cancun or Leblanc. One time I did a quick trip to the grand mayan and paid 1700 total for the two of us but its not all inclusive. Usually I go during high season.
So this all got me wondering, am I realistic, am I paying too much?? I just wanted to see what others consider and affordable and expensive vacation?
For a 3 star for hotel only I think paying more than 70 per person per night is expensive ( example is oasis)
For 4 star I think more than 120 per night per person is expensive (example is gran caribe or golden parnassus)
For 5 star I think 200 per night per person is expensive
(example is Leblanc or the royal)
I am just curious, any thoughts??
