Need a vacation spot!
    #5110399 - 12/27/05 06:54 AM (18 years, 5 months ago)

Hey all,

So my girl and I are looking for a vacationing spot from Jan 8-Jan 16. Here's what we have to work with:

Budget: ~$2000
Duration: ~1 week

So with these in mind, where would you go? Some place romantic please :smile:, but obviously not too expensive. Was thinking about Mexico, Caribbean, South America, Hawaii... Europe is a bit out of the picture due to the time constraint. Budget encompasses airfare, lodging, transportation, entertainment, and food (etc.) so not really too much to work with.

Anyways, thanks for the inputs in advance.

Dominican Republic - Cabarete, right outside Puerto Plata. I'm there right now. Cheap and awesome.

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

Stop thinking big, busy city and start thinking sleepy, out-of-the-way town with lots of charm, character, and antiques shops.

Micanopy, Florida fits the bill, and it's just south of Gainesville so if you absolutely have to get your big city fix, you can drive into town for dinner.  :sun:

Jamaica is fun and doable on that budget. Negril, on the beach.

Indeed, don't go to Oahu, but do come to Hawaii! Maui, Kauai and Lanai offer some super duper great hiking and camping experiences (I'd recommend Maui, but then I'm biased...). Flights are cheap if you look at the right time, and if you camp out, you avoid all the cost of staying at a resort (but you should stay at a resort the last night, she'd love that!).

Are you water people? Then I'd suggest Cozumel, you can dive the ruins!

Does Cozumel even exist anymore . The eye of that last hurricane went directly over it . I'd heard from some friends that it was pretty much destroyed .

dood , fuck it , go to Jamaica.
i mean really what can you do...
hmm you could go to cambodia ( notsure bout that airfare though ) but cambodia is great for hitchhiking around , just exploring , many great ruins , temples allow for you to stay with them and learn from them..then the parties in the city are insane..pound of weed = 50 american dollars.. ( and old women are the ones who sell it usually haha ) ...food = 20 a day for 2 people , taxis are cheaper than dirt ( literally ) its a great place , look into it.

m00nshine is currently vacationing in Maui. Rumor has it he got rolled by drunken natives and is currently prostituting himself in order to pay for airfare back to the mainland but he's having trouble juggling a hairon addiction. He won't be back for a long while.

What's wrong with Micanopy? I like visiting the place, though I wouldn't want to live there.

OK, so what about Hawaii? Not a touristy place... still want to see volcanos though. What about Maui?
