need help with prospective vacation: on the cheap

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend will be footing the bill on this trip. I have tried and tried to suggest mexico but he adamently refuses, why? I have no idea. I may be able to convince him to go to puerto rico. Where else would you suggest we go? I am not entirely sure of the budget...I am guessing total for accomodations and airfare we will have about $3500-3800? Yes, i realize that is NOTHING nowadays when it comes to vacation. but, i did it last year in jamaica for under $3200....so...maybe it will happen?? #don'tcrushmydreams. Id like to go to an AI simply for the "at ease, stress-free" atmosphere. I really hate worrying about money on vacation. So, to add that to the equation, does anyone have a resort suggestion that they really liked? I feel i set my standards too high because of jamaica because Couples Sans Souci had a lot of little really nice touches that made it really great (a ton of booze in the room, included in the cost. no major bug issues. room was very spacey. and the best....NO KIDS) the only destination i am really not interested in is costa rica. I. need. clear. blue. water.

THANK YOU!!!
