  • I know september is hurricane season there, so please check weather stuff before booking. we always forget that the weather in diff p[laces is diff from here at that time of yr. inlaws had a very sucky honeymoon due to a nasty hurricane while they were there and half the resorts are not even open.

  • We've used www.cheapcaribbean.com several times, and you can find good deals on expedia.com as well (I always compare the two). The only real drawback is that you are charged when the trip is booked - I don't really mind that, but some may.

  • The drinks are alcoholic if you want. Since I don't know where you will be traveling from I can't give you an exact idea how much the trip would cost - most likely $1200 to $1800 per person.
    I live in Florida and my friends and I did an all inclusive for 1 week for $511 per person to Jamaica for 1 week but that was a Florida resident special.
    Don't forget you'll need passports for yor trip.
    I will also suggest to plan a day trip to Ocho Rios to climb the waterfalls. I think it was $30 - 40 a person to take the ride over to Ocha Rios from Montego Bay. We also did a couple of side trips along the way - one was a canoe trip through a river.
    As for hurricane season - it's June - November but we don't see them coming close until late August until the end of season.

  • I was just looking around on the All Inclusive Outlet web site. If you booked your trip out of Ft Lauderdale, you could get it for $800 - $900 per person. Most of the flights out of Ft Lauderdale are after 4 PM. You could consider booking a flight from your home to Ft Lauderdale in the morning.
    Where do you live?
    I travel a lot and find great deals.
    We did Ft Lauderdale to Los Angeles - train to San Diego - San Diego to Orlando last year for $239 a person round trip last year. I also did Orlando to NYC in Dec with a 2 day notice for $129 a person round trip.
