Need a Couple of Days in the Sun?

After doing hours of research on the Internet for an inexpensive long weekend away, I thought i would share the results with you.. Three Nights with Airfare allowing us to get away Monday and returning Thursday back to work for the weekend. All inclusive would be nice but not necessary.
The hands down winner for a short trip like this is Grand Bahama Island followed by Nassau. The airfare is a big part of it. The best deal was to the Wyndam Grand Bahama all inclusive with air for $777 a couple. Yes a couple. Reviews were mixed so step out of the inclusive and stay at Lacaya and you can do that with out the inclusive but much nicer accommodations and location. In the heart of Lacaya with its market shops, restaurants, casino and beach or the resort thirty minutes in a cab away.
The next destination to show up is Mexico with the beautiful Oasis resorts. The trip can be had for $1200 inclusive. It is Mexico and that has both good things attached to it and some really bad things attached to it so you would have to decide for yourself.
Worth mentioning is the Carnival Cruise out of Baltimore every Sunday. Seven days starting at $1000 per couple. Anyone considering a trip should consider it because without the cost of airfare getting to and from the port, cruises become fairly inexpensive. Balcony room on a cruise in March is $1300 for a couple. They are serious about their fun on Carnival.
Next on the list was Dominican Republic with a couple traveling for three nights and air with inclusive stay coming in at $1600.For that range the Carribean opens up for you ranging from St. Thomas to Aruba with great deals. Compare these with a trip to Miami Beach costing $800 without F&B.
Just thought I could help someone get out of town and enjoy themselves even if it is just for two full days. I like to count the days that you wake up and go to sleep in the hotel as real vacation days. This trip nets you two real days of fun in the sun.
