First, thanks for any help or suggestions on this question. My wife and I are celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary December 10th and want to travel out of the country. We both have passports that have not been used yet and want to use them. We are looking to travel somewhere warm or sunny or interesting in December. She would like to see Mayan ruins and have tacos in Mexico, I have no strong preferences. We are looking to spend about $2500 including airfare for a 5-7 day stay. I'm sure Mexico is possible. I see deals all over for packages around $2000 at all-inclusive resorts. We're not sit around the pool type people, are these worth it? Flying from Portland (maybe Seattle), is the Caribbean or Europe possible in our budget? I could probably talk her into Western Europe, even if the weather is not sunny/warm. Are there other destinations that should be considered? Are there still travel agencies that make this easy or is it significantly cheaper to book everything online? Do travel agencies provide services that make them worth the premium (if there is a premium)? Again, thanks for any help!
