Wierd. As a Canadian I have never found vacations this cheap in my life. Ill be leaving on the 29th for Punta Cana. Dirt cheap.
Unebelievably I may go again in December found a cheapo-fillipo place in Cuba for $87 for an entire week, airfare, unlmited food and unlimited drink. It's on Itravel2000.com. I just want to go for the hell of it just to see what $87 gets you!!
I believe they are still in the dark ages with regard to cuba. However, now that the offshore oil industry is heating up there with expected reserves of 20 billion bbls off their shores I believe a fairly recent article said, they may well start singing another tune. However, they may just be apt to stand by and watch the rest of the world, China, Russia, and other countries firms develop the resource and pay for it all at the pump alone wwith no other benefit :) Thanks for the heads up on that vacation I may see you there, cold in Edmonton in the winter, would be a nice respite.
