@Kayla0416:  I was thinking maybe Costa Rica??  I see Living Social deals for all inclusives all the time for CR.

Look into Punta Cana…I’m always seeing great deals for resorts there.

My parents just got back from the princess bravera (sp?) in the Dominican republic, and they loved it. They got the VIP package which probsbly put the cost right at your max budget, but my mom said she was spoiled so much with the VIP package she’ll never be able to travel without it again! Lol

 

There are plenty of places in cuba (veradero, Cayo coco) and Venezuela (margarita island) that would work for you. 

Eta – the resort in the Dominican I was referring to is a 4.5 star resort, very clean and nice.

I second Punta Cana.  We definitely got the most bang for our buck there, compared to Mexico, Jamaica, and other parts of the DR.

ETA: Our group did a swim with sea lions/booze cruise excursion through Dolphin Explorer last time we visited, but the one I really wanted to do (I was outvoted) was this one: http://www.seavisbayahibe.com/Saona_e.htm

@FortiesFlare:  Cuba is out for her, since she is in the US, and Americans aren’t allowed there ๐Ÿ™

You should definitely be able to find something in the Dominican or Costa Rica for your budget. Jamaica as well.

We’re going to an all-inclusive in the Dominican Republic in November but I don’t know what it costs because my in-laws are paying (Love it!).

My sister and her Fiance are honeymooning to an all-inclusive in Jamiaca.

I pinned this article on the 10 best all-inclusive resorts in the Carribean at one point.  I don’t know if any of them will meet your budget but it may be worth a look.

ETA: They also have 10 runner-ups (one for each category) so it is really 20 different all-inclusives.

Dominican Republic is definitely a possibility for your budget. Also, Bahamas or many of the islands depending on the package you get. I do better booking everything myself vs using a travel agent.

@Baroness_Meg:  Oh right, forgot about that. Althought last time I was in Cuba there were lots of Americans. I’m not sure if they flew in from Canada or what, (haven’t the travel restrictions been relaxed/lifted? I thought I remembered hearing about that?).

@FortiesFlare:  Yeah, you can get there through Canada or Mexico, but it’s frowned upon, yanno? 

I’m also coming back here since I’d like to sink my tush in the sand over Christmas if Taiwan doesn’t work out.

@Kayla0416:  We booked our all in-inclusive honeymoon to St James, Jamaica. It was just right over $3k with tax for us both including airfaire, and we’re staying 5 nights. ๐Ÿ™‚ Secrets Resorts received amazing reviews and we’re VERY excited to visit!
