Someplace warm (and reasonable)

Hubby and I are looking for a warm (80 or warmer) place to go for about 5 days at the end of January. We took a short cruise last year and loved it (and may do it again), but are checking into non-cruise places as well. On our short list are Cancun, US Virgin Is., Barbados,

Aruba, Ixtapa - and other such places. By reasonable, we mean under $2500 for 2 of us for 4 or 5 nights (including airfare from Moline, IL). Any thoughts?

Warm yes, reasonable maybe. I have no idea about the air fare, but there are many options for accomodations in STT depending on what you want and how particular you are. On the low end maybe $200/night all the way to $500/night.

if you are including meal expense in your budget amount then again you can get a pizza and salad for $30 or spend $300 for a botttle of wine to go with a $150 meal for two.

We do Playa Del Carmen and/or Cancun in January, we've always been lucky but temps can vary.

The USVI and BVI are also a great choice because of the different is

Ands you can see

Aruba and Barbados would be the best choices for consistently warm temps of course, ajd we like Barbados but Aruba has some excellent resort options.

What are you looking for - enjoying a nice beach and pool, or more active pursuits? Playa Del Carmen offers more historical and ecological tour options and has the same beautiful beaches. But the eastern and southern Caribbean are equally beautiful.
