Even saying the words, "Tropical Getaway," seem too expensive for my taste (and my wallet). The crystal clear waters, pure white sand and cabana boys fanning you with palm leaves...well, that doesn't come cheap. There's certainly no fun in taking a vacation where once you've arranged the hotel you can't afford to ever leave it, which is why you should start packing the sunscreen today, because we're here to help! We're here to put the fear of dollar signs out of your mind (and ours) and share some great suggestions on making your tropical daydreams a reality!

Tropical Getaway Ideas: Aruba

Flamingos on the Beach

Including a pretty lateral currency exchange rate (huge perks to that to keep in mind) and cool trade winds, this destination is one that we feel sometimes gets overlooked initially when thinking about where to head this summer. Aruba offers amazing rates, things to do for those who like to stay active and amazing amenities to those who would rather take the time to catch up on some rest. Boasting perfect 83 degree weather year-round, low humidity and a location below the hurricane belt, I'd say they have it made! They even have one of the Top Ten Beaches in the world... Eagle Beach!

Tropical Getaways: Cancun

Sure, you first think "Spring Break, Baby!", but in all seriousness Cancun has really matured over the years! They still accommodate college students celebrating the end of a semester, but also welcome families and honeymooners! Again, the weather can't be beat, but it is a bit humid which can sometimes make the temperatures feel much warmer. They do have very inexpensive transportation around the area and the US Dollar currency exchange is pretty good (Please check current listings before planning your trip as this can fluctuate and should not be taken as a standard from this blog!)
