Vacation Recommendations

Recommended Posts

My family has now decided to forego Christmas presents every year and take a family vacation. I guess they really liked Costa Rica. Now they are discussing where to go for next year, so we can book somewhere. What was your favorite vacation and where would you recommend to go?

 

I suggested Cabo, but they said they all voted Mexico out, I really want to change their minds...

 

Pictures and any recommendations would be great, thanks!

We loved Moon Palace in Riviera Maya. It's AMAZING. I'd check out any of the Palace Resorts.

 

Or I vote Cayman Islands.

we will be going on a family cruise in 2009, my parents love Hawaii but we decided with two infants (mine and my sisters) Hawaii isn't realistic so at least with a cruise there is something for everyone.

probably a carribean cruise.

Why rule out mexico? I think it's a great place for family vacations. It's so beautiful & affordable.

 

I think brazil sounds great. Other ideas are Disney World, cabin in the mountains, or a Ski lodge in colorado.

 

I'm glad to hear your family had such a great time. I think the idea of a family vacation instead of presents is great. Most of us don't need any more stuff, but having fun together as a family would be something you'll never forget.

not to be insenstive, but they are "ignorant" as you may say as far as knowing about other places. I think they are highly afraid of the water situation and getting sick

What a great idea! I have heard nothing, but good things about the Cayman Islands. We wanted to have our wedding there, but it was going to be more expensive and no direct flights from Chicago.

when I was researching for the wedding I loved Antigua, a co-worker just came back from St. Lucia and said its beautiful. I went to Turks & Caicos islands a few years ago and it was also beautiful!

 

we go on a group trip every year to the outerbanks in NC too, its so beautiful there, we rent a house and buy a ton of food and its really affordable.

laurens post just reminded me, I've also been to the atlantis in the bahamas, I honestly didn't like it that much, I thought it was SUPER overpriced and it was nothing special, IMO.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
