Destination: Greek Islands
Best deal found: We found a very nice and inexpensive apartment, Mero Vigla Apartments, in Imerovigli on Santorini (only 15 walk into Fira). It easily accomodated our family of four (two adults and two teens), it had a kitchenette, a gorgeous pool, AND a stunning view of the caldera from its private patio. It was a great deal at 115 euros per night!

Best deal found: I used a $400 voucher for my cheap flight and our group got 2 nights free lodging out of the 5 we stayed. We also talked to a local guide who told us the few good local restaurants that were reasonable.

Submitted by: Allan M.
Destination: Cococay, Bahamas
Best deal found: Last minute cruises are very inexpensive. $99 per person, 4 day cruise to the Bahamas. You must be flexible to leave within a 60 day or less window. We’ve learned to be so flexible, even with a 1 year old. I took my family on this cruise. The first stop was the island Cococay, owned by the cruise line. So much to do with very little or NO MONEY. Beautiful beach, free barbeque chicken lunch, free refreshments, inexpensive beach appearal. We had a blast this day and it didn’t cost us a thing. I highly recommend it. Maybe we’ll see you there!!! Allan & Gavin

Destination: Ecuador
