Good Party/Vacation for 5-7 days.... ?? ideas ?

Hi, me and my friends are looking to go somewhere for 5-7 days to party/drink/rest.
ideas are...
Mexico-Cancun (sorta scared of the flu crap)
Miami - Florida
Hawaii
Puerto Rico
Jamaica ?

Any other suggestions?

budget is 1000-1300 per person for 5-7 day stay w/ drinks, food etc.

I would add Puerto Rico or Dominican Republic to the list although I would take camping over all of that.

Yeah Hawaii would bust that budget still unless your going super cheap.

Figure 100 a night MINIMUM, plus food, drink and travel for basically anywhere. Of course if you are going 2 or 3 or 4 in a room it might be a little cheaper per night. Most hotels anywhere near anything 'resort' or 'spring break' like run up over $100 a night for single occupancy (most around $150-250 a night).

Crap my business trip to San Diego for 5 days (4 nights) is running around $1100. That doesn't include partying or excessive drinking and that is including the gov't discount on airfare and hotel. Course the hotel isn't exactly a dive.

How much do you guys plan to drink? That could be really expensive if you don't budget for it. Perhaps find an all inclusive package. They tend to run cheaper.

Re: Good Party/Vacation for 5-7 days.... ?? ideas ?

Yeah if you are going to go wherever and buy the alcohol local and drink that is one thing, but if you are hitting bars, especially getting wasted most nights your looking at a pretty step tab. I've never done the bar/club thing, but friends of mine who did could easily drop $50-80 a night on drinks. Drinking alone would be close to half your budget.

Airfare is much cheaper then it used to be, but still figure at least $300 round trip a person depending on where you are going it could be more like $500-600.

Throw in at least $30 a day for food as well. So $80-120 hotel, $30-40 food, unknown for drinks plus $300 on the low end to $600 on the high end for airfare and you've got $850 on the low end with no drinks for 5 nights and $1650 on the high end for 7 nights with no drinking.

Not saying your budget isn't realistic, but you need to start looking in to hotel and airfare prices at a minimum.
