Cheap Getaways in December
This world is expensive, and cheap getaways in December can be hard to find. Sometimes they're in the United States, and sometimes a plane trip to a far off continent is required to really reap the benefits of a cheap place. But no matter where you go when your budget is a little tight, you'll still have just as much fun as if you splurged like crazy. You don't have to be a Rockefeller to have a great vacation in a beautiful vacation rental.
the Coconino National Forest , where the lack of crowds is romantic and the wildlife is sedate. On top of that, how much money could you possibly spend in the woods?
the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art and the various adult pools around Sin City. The only big, i.e. expensive, time in Vegas in December is New Year's Eve, and that's a great day to fly home.
the Berlin Wall started here. History is fascinating and budget-friendly.
Two of the neatest things to do in this area are Flume Trail , which is a seriously challenging bike ride, and the Echo Lakes hiking trail . Step out of your rental and take a long walk, a long ride, or just sit and enjoy the natural beauty. Money can't really buy peace, and it's free anyway.
Puerto Viejo, which is one of the most popular beach destinations in the Caribbean. There's a party happening almost every night, and if you're an early morning person you'll have the beach mostly to yourself, since the party types like to sleep in.
Taos Pueblo , which is spellbinding. If you love to tour museums, Taos will keep you very busy. Since the weather is nice, you won't have to worry about bundling up.
the Aquaclub La Source Tremblant , where you can indulge in some primo water-related hedonism. At this early point in the season, the crowds are nigh nonexistent.
