Should I buy my mom a passport or go to Puerto Rico

Jump to last reply

I would like to take my mom on a vacation this year for her birthday. She doesn't travel and has no need for a passport. I took her on a cruise for Christmas a few years ago and she really enjoyed it but our cheap cruise options are limited as we are from Texas. I thought about Puerto Rico since she won't need a passport to go there, another more expensive cruise to the Bahamas (she's always wanted to see the Atlantis resort that is there), or just buying her a passport as part of the gift and taking her to another island. I'm a budget traveler so I wouldn't want to spend more than $2,000 total.

What would you suggest? If you think I should buy the passport what island would you recommend? I don't want to culture shock her or anything but also don't want an all-inclusive resort. I know she would like the beach, snorkeling, a colonial city feel, and ruins she can climb on if possible. I've done some research but my tastes are completely different from hers as I prefer to constantly be on the go doing adventurous activities.
Thank you for any suggestions.
