So the past week I have been in the beginning stages of planning our annual december 2 week trip, after all that's what we do immediately after our vacations, to lessen the hangover. Been to playa 2x, just came back in early June, love , love it , but want to experience other places. I am currently on the Negril and St Lucia forums, finding info on couples or sandals, which seem like nice resorts, especially price wise as hubby spent out the " booty" on scuba diving, and diving is included ! Here is my real question - had anyone gone to Playa and next vacation gone to jamaica of even st. Lucia and regretted it? Right now I think it's all about price, we have no problem going back to the Royal if we price out his dive costs and that and hotel and airfare and they are less than sandals and couples in Jamaica or St. Lucia ( that includes his 2 week worth of dives) so much to think about! Playa is our favorite vacay, but at the same time, there is a lot of world to see!
