I am a teacher and my boyfriend works in pro sports. We rarely have time off together but we could get about five days off in April. I want to plan a vacay for us for four to five nights. I told him I wanted to plan something and he said “Somewhere warm with nice water.” So immediately I am looking at caribbean. i am going to surprise him for Christmas with the whole thing booked. I went to a travel agent and have been looking into montego bay jamaica, but I’m not sure if it’s more money than I’d like to spend.
So my questions are:
1. What is your favorite spot in the caribbean?
2. Since I’m open to other places, what is your favorite place in the states to visit?
3. How do you book your vacations? Do you use an agent or online? How do you find the best deals?
Thanks for any insight!!

I’ve been to Aruba and really liked it. There’s stuff to do in town, natural places to explore, and beach to hang out on.
Places in the US that I’ve been to and liked include New Orleans (although I’ve only been pre-Katrina), Arizona, and San Diego.
When I’m looking at vacations there’s a few different ways I do things. I always book online, though. Sometimes I just look at sites like TravelZoo that have deals for all around the world. But that way you only get links to the “best” deals, so if you want to go somewhere in particular that might not work. If I have somewhere specific I use website like Travelocity, Expedia and Hotwire to compare prices of different hotels. I usually also check out the hotel website, even if I’m booking through somewhere else. For airfare I highly recommend fly.com and kayak.

You could do a five night cruise from Miami to the Caribbean. Pretty affordable because everything (except alchohol) is included and very relaxing.

In May my bf and I stayed at Breezes all-inclusive resort in the Bahamas. I thought it was a good deal for the money, since the room, food, drinks, some activities were all included in one price (and tipping isn’t allowed). The beach was gorgeous! If your looking for a fun place to get a decent deal for your money then I’d suggest Breezes. If you want a more quiet, romantic getaway then this probably wouldn’t be the right place. Happy planning!
