Loooking for a place thats not too expensive. Needs to be warm and have enough stuff to do for the whole family. Check the bahamas but too much money. Was also thinking Hawii but that is probably too much money also. Is there any other island in the pacific that are not too much money to visit?

What about a cruise? Get a suite per 2-3 people.

Caymans and Cozumel makes for a nice 5-day cruise...and great destinations in the winter.

I hear the rates have been dropping, lots of cancellations.

There may be some good package deals right now.

Go to Costa Rica. Wife and I went there last year and had a blast. Lots of fun things to do, wonderful people, great food and beer (and it was very inexpensive), most everyone speaks English. We look forward to going again.

If you aren't set on the tropics, Vegas is great for the Christmas holiday. Not crowded, the food is great, weather is great, lots to see and do, and not very expensive.

From NY? Forget the Pacific.

There are some VERY nice islands off the Washington coast, but why travel that far?

Go to Bermuda.

Stay at one of the large hotels and there will be things to do for the kids. Shopping along Front Street for the wife. And excellent cigars and Hurricanes for you.

How safe is it? I always wanted to go there but it looked too expensive. But I was looking at Los Suenos fishing resort, which was probably pretty expensive.

There are lots of things to see right here in the CUS. Warm places when it's winter, cool places when it summer. Have you ever seen the Grand Canyon?

The bonus is you don't need a passport.
Your Dream Vacation

Have a nice day.
