Our top pick is a trip the the Dominican Republic. Here's why: great beaches, great prices, other fun entertainment close by. The house we want to rent is " The villa de las Serenas" A five bedroom and five bath private villa, with a private beach, pool, maid and cook! The cook will cook whatever you want her to! Fresh lobster or crab, smoothies, and she will even bring your drinks to you while floating in the pool. Does this sound like a dream come true? I wish we were there right now! The cost is what is so great at $1225.00 PER WEEK . That is for 4 guests. You will tip the maid and cook at the end, but they have a recommended amount and it is not much with the exchange rates. My friend stayed there and the groceries cost them around $120.00 for the entire week, and that includes the tip! If you want to cut costs the villa sleeps 10 people invite some friends or family!
The main cost would be in your flight, but you can find good deals year round. Dominican here I come!
