Hi! I am a pretty experienced traveler, but I have always done the super budget route (cheapest airfare, only stay in hostels) and I have been able to plan my travel dates around when I could get super deals.

Now I am engaged to a teacher, so we are limited by his vacation time - 3rd week in Feb. Also, we want to stay in a hotel rather than dormitory style in a hostel! And finally, he insists that it be somewhere warm (so that rules out the great deals I have found for Paris, etc...)

So I was thinking of venturing into the realm of vacation packages. I have heard you can get good deals but I have been searching on expedia and otehr travel websites and I am coming up with $1,200-$2,000+ per person for airfares+hotel.

We want to go somewhere warm for 6-7 days in February and don't want to spend a lot (I want it to be under $1,400 for both of us, and we are coming from Boston... is this even reasonable?).

I am looking for suggestions on websites to check out, or should I find a local travel agent? My ideal locations are: Costa Rica, Mexico, or Puerto Rico. I want to go somewhere that there is more to do than just lay on the beach.

Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!
