Ideas & Suggestions

Hi, so my boyfriend & I are looking to go away around mid-march but are looking for somewhere warm, where we can do activities (such as water sports), enjoy the scenery, and great cuisine. We are also looking for something relatively not that expensive since we plan on traveling once again at the end of summer. So do you guys have suggestions? Anything is welcome!! Thank you!!

WHERE are you traveling from? And for how long?

>>relatively not that expensive<<

'Not expensive' means lots of things to different people. What sort of budget are you talking about? Do you want to fly? Drive?

>>looking for somewhere warm, where we can do activities (such as water sports)<<

March is not warm/water sports weather in most parts of the US if that is where you are.

I'm looking to travel for a week (March 11 or 12 through the 18th or so).
We don't necessarily have a budget but we're looking to find the best deal which hopefully includes air and stay. We're thinking somewhere in the Caribbean or South America since these places are warm in March.

Your exact budget is important. Also, your departure city.
Jamaica, cheaper than many places
Caribbean, taking into consideration damage from the hurricanes
Costa Rica, great tours through Travel Zoo
Mexico, lots of inexpensive resorts and independent hotels.
Look at Travel Zoo for ideas for tours, flights, etc. and
Cheap Caribbean for some ideas on places in the Caribbean.
Look at vacationstogo for cheap cruises to beautiful islands. A cruise might not have amazing food, but it could be quite good, and would get you some Sun, Sand and water sports.

Then you will want to re-post on the Caribbean and/or South America forums (and Mexico for that matter). Where are you flying from -- that could have a HUGE effect on airfares.

I second the idea of travelzoo -- lots of special/bargains.

You can often get good travel deals on Groupon as well.

We're flying from NYC and budget wise I would like to say no more than $800 per person.

Does the $800 include airfare?

Check out CheapCaribbean too for a realistic idea of costs.
Ten thumbs question is important. Does the $800 include airfare?
