    Vacation Package Questions

    My wife and I are looking to go on a 4 to 5 day vacation to somewhere tropical. We are looking for as cheap as possible, but still having all inclusive if possible. Does anyone know what sites are the best/cheapest? Would a cruise be cheaper, we can drive to Florida to board, but wondering if it is as good as an all inclusive resort type vacation. Thanks for any input!

    Punta Cana is awesome and cheap(ish).

    Where would you fly out of? Check out this website and select your departure city from the right side of the screen. Great last minute travel deals:

    I would love to stay at a resort like the movie Couple Retreat. A hut over the water would be very cool. Anyone know of a place like this?

    Re: Vacation Package Questions

    Isn't all inclusive necessarily going to be more expensive? That's always been my impression. Unless you're planning on eating like a pig and drinking like a fish.

    Maybe, but the amount of liquor I drink, and amount of food I eat it is nice not to have to worry about having cash, etc.... It is nice just ordering whatever you want every day.

    Re: Vacation Package Questions

    Ok.....I think my main decision would be made in regard to how many choices for dining would be included. My wife and I ate at about 20 different places in Key West, just to get a good variety, and then went back to the 2 or 3 best ones. But we did spend a mint on it.

    I looked at that site from the last thread you linked it in. I think what I would do if I booked one of those would be to take allegiant air to vegas than transfer to another air line there. Seemed prices for the packages including airfare from there were pretty reasonable.
