HELP...need a good-value vacations

Hi! Looking for a good-value vacation that won't break the bank for late October. Have stayed at some nice places in the last three years (like the Royal Hideaway and the Westin Rio Mar), but need a cheap getaway this time.

Thinking about Punta Cana or Roatan in Honduras, but there's so many options that I'm getting dizzy. Beach that is calm enough to swim and catamaran is important. Snorkel is one of our favorite activities. Having an after-dinner drink (or two) while listening to music is also important. HELP

If you want to check out resort reviews in Punta Cana, go to:
You'll find loads of reviews.
I personally think Punta Cana is one of the best value vacations around. It's astonishingly beautiful! Another "cheap" vacation is Cuba (if you're not American, that is). Other areas of the Dominican Republic may also suit your needs.

You might want to look into Puerto Vallarta. When I went there it was very inexpensive. I stayed at a small hotel on the beach in the town area. It was small but clean and had a pool, beach, and small restaurant/bar. It was farther from the hotel zone action but the bus was cheap and readily available. I can't remember the name of the hotel. Have fun!

I just remembered the name of the hotel mentioned in my above post. It is Playa de los Arcos.

Depends on where you are flying out of but from the Northeast Apple has some amazing deals to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. All inclusive with air for about $700.00 each for 7 nights at decent 4 and 5 star resorts. Pretty good snorkeling there, most of the resorts have hobies. "" is the place to search and get a ton of reviews. Good luck!
