    Just wondering if anyone else from Canada is looking to book and having a hard time finding decent prices for any nice resorts given the exchange rate?

     

    I am struggling to find something that I think is not too onerous for my guests....like $1800 per person CAD. Just doesn't seem doable unless I pick a really crappy resort.

      I'm booked to leave Toronto in May 2017! My guests who are looking to travel with at least 1 roommate is looking at about 1500 taxes in.

        Hi Leslie!

         

        What resort/location did you book?

         

        Thanks. Just struggling to find good options!

            Hi Leslie. I am in Toronto. Not sure if that will impact flight prices. 

             

            I can't seem to find any resort ANYWHERE that I really like for $1800 per person or less. I am considering other islands too, Mexico, etc.. Jan- April...very flexible on dates.

             

            It is so hard.

              Oh no. The reason why I ask is because I can refer you to my TA! She's been very helpfull since day one with me. I've changed my dates twice and the resort twice! Plus she's also given me an option to change the price if I see it drop.

              She's in Mississauga though. Not that it's a HUGE deal because a lot of it is through email.

              But just a thought. But May is usually a time where price drops in comparison to March and etc.

                I suppose it cannot hurt! Did you want to send it in a private message?

                 

                Just curious, what other resorts you had considered? I have changed mine too (though it was not booked yet)

                 

                We might consider April or May now....January we were told would not be too expensive but apparently we were wrong.

                  Lol! I've looked into January. Then February. Then April. Now May.

                  I looked at doing it at Majestic Elegance. And Dreams Resorts. But because of my research with prices I couldn't book it.

                  Then I booked with Grand Palladium. Packages were great, TripAdvisor reviews and pictures seemed good; but I had a family member travel there and she did not enjoy it much. So I cancelled that and switched to Memories Splash.

                  Her email is:
                  KRISTIN.ARMSTRONG@FLIGHT CENTRE.CA

                  Hope I kind of helped you out. Although I know Kristin will be doing it all! Good luck!

                  Feel free to ask me any thing else. I can help you as much as I can given we are pretty much on the same stage for planning.

                    Thanks a lot Leslie.

                     

                    That doesn't sound good as I was hoping to get a Dreams Resort in the budget :( Canadian dollar sucks so much right now. It also sucks that you can get these resorts last minute for $1500 but it is $2000 in advance.

                     

                    I don't mind paying a lot for my own vacation but I don't want to put a massive cost on my guests

                      We wanted January 2017 and wanted our guests to pay less than the other 2000 in the Mayan. Best we found was Dec 1-8 at Sandos Caracol for 1735 from Edmonton
