BURLINGTON
BUDGET
$1500 per person or under

DATES
Leaving Feb.6,7,8 or 9, 2015 for 7 days

Destination
Somewhere warm and sunny on the beach. Nice beach is important. Swimmable ocean.
Prefer somewhere other than Cuba and Mayan Riviera (been there, done that), unless it's a fantastic deal. More open to Mayan than Cuba.

Who's traveling
1 male and 1 female (couple), late 30s

Point of Origin + alternatives
Hamilton would be great, YYZ is good too. Buffalo is also possible.

Star/ratings + meal requirements
Prefer 4 stars or above, all inclusive.

Food: We're not going there for the food so as long as it's decent and won't make us sick, we'll be happy.
It's important that the room have a mini-fridge as I have medication the needs to kept cold.
Prefer adults-only, but if not possible, prefer a resort that's more adult-oriented, quiet, or with a separate pool/activity area for kids.
Some entertainment would be great, but we're not big partiers. No need for nightclubs or casino.
Mainly going for the sun, beach, ocean, relaxation.


At this point, are we better off waiting until the very last minute? What is last minute these days - 2 weeks, 1 week, a few days??


Thanks in advance for any advice.

April 30th is the end of high season. You'll probably find some decent prices for that week. Won't be too busy since Easter is earlier in the month.

We'd like to get to Portugal for Spring Break. It appears that air fares are rising; what was barely $1000 two weeks ago is now $1350. So I thought I'd post here to see if someone has a better idea.


BUDGET

• Max $3500 for three adult economy tix


DATES

• Spring Break 2015
• Leave Monday Mar 9th if Vancouver; Sunday Mar 8th if Comox/Nanaimo/Victoria
• Return Sunday Mar 22nd – Tues Mar 24th

Preferred destination

• Lisbon
• Culture, Hiking/Nature

Who's traveling

• 3 Adults … 2 parents and 17 year old son

Point of Origin + alternatives

• Prefer Comox – Nanaimo.
• Vancouver is no problem but adds ferry time (and $200)


Optional:

• Air only
• Shortest duration possible on return flight

Hi,
We are looking for an all inclusive, 7 day vacation for my fiance and I down south. We prefer jamaica, mexico an dominican destinations. We can leave anytime and would like to go before the end of march. We are willing to spend $1500 per person, however looking for a last minute deal which may be cheaper. We like 5 stars and it doesnt matter if its family or adults only. We like a flight that would be direct from Ottawa and leave in the morning. We have checked all the travel sites such as sunwing, signature, redtag, itravel2000, selloffvacations, trip central etc.

Just curious if anyone was stumbling upon anything cheaper lately? I have seen the Riu Bambu in Punta Cana is $845 plus taxes.

Thanks for the help!

For this time of year $875 is a really good price and you likely won't find cheaper.
