    ISU Hawaii Christmas

    Is anyone thinking about going to the tourney over Christmas. We are (no kids!) but don't want to be the only non-parents there.

    Just priced out the flight. I don't make enough blood to sell for this to work, and I need my limbs and valuable organs.

    Re: ISU Hawaii Christmas

    Been to Hawaii once. Loved it, but will never go back again because of the price, from now on, all-inclusives to Cancun for me.

    Not to get this thread off subject, but Cancun is also safe, and beautiful, less pricey, but not in the USA. So pretty equal and much easier on the pocket. The unsafe thing is blown way out of proportion if you stay in the touristy areas. They would not want to harm their cash cow.

    i know. but i prefer a legal system that i trust should i be detained for any reason. i've been to mexico without problems but my sister has jewelery stolen from her hotel room in cancun, a friend was detained for drunk driving while he was sober in puerta vallarta, and there was a double homicide at the hotel my aunt was staying at (forget the city).

    those are clearly anecdotal but the little things tend to add up. To compare, I've been to Hawaii 4 times and never had a single issue. Again, I understand 99% of tourists have a good time but if you can afford it why risk it?

    edit - flights too expensive. nevermind

    Understood if you have personal experiences or close ones with bad personal experiences, I can see why you would think this. To me, I LOVED Hawaii, and suggest that everyone go once. But at the same time I love the all inclusive aspect of Cancun and have never had any issues there. I will continue to go back there, because once you have seen all the sights at Hawaii, there is not much difference between the two(a warm beach is a warm beach to me) except for price.
