Winter Holiday

My boyfriend and I are planning on going somewhere hot in February. I’ve only been to the tropics once in 2007 when I went to Cuba with my last boyfriend. I’m not really sure where we are going to go on this trip. I’m kind of leaving it up to him since it was his idea to go. I would really like to go back to Cuba because I had a good experience there. But for the same reason, I don’t think my current boyfriend wants to go there. I think I would be comfortable going anywhere except for Mexico, which is where he wanted to go. I just hear so many horror stories from there. But I guess most people are fine when they go there.

What tropical places have you been to? Did you book through a travel agent or did you just book online yourself? Do you have any places/resorts you would recommend? I would really like to go to an all inclusive resort, which is what I did in Cuba. It’s so nice not having to worry about buying food, drinking all the free alcohol you want, and just lazying around on the beach.

Do you think it’s better to book the trip now or wait until February and find a last minute deal? I’m a planner. It makes me so nervous when things are not all booked beforehand. I’m trying really hard to be patient and just let things happen. Planning my life has backfired so far so I’m really trying to just go with the flow.
