When we were in Punta Cana, anything motorized was an additional fee (but quite cheap), while anything not motorized was free.

OTOH, I'm not recommending the DR these days.

What’s wrong with the DR?

Lots of tourists have been mysteriously dying and getting extremely ill in the DR; please stay far away!!

Also, if a passport is the only thing keeping you from the destination of your choice, you should know that there are services that can renew them as quickly as overnight (for a fee).

Cancun is amazing. Do you have any points you can use for travel?

I'd recommend finding a nice place in the Caribbean. You'll have to pay for flights and lodging, but you can totally spend 3 days there without spending another penny. Get a nice private villa (even better with a pool) and just enjoy that and a quiet spot on the beach. You can definitely do watersports - jetski, snorkel, horseback riding in the ocean (!!), but no need. DH and I did this many years ago and it was amazing!

Just be aware that the end of August is getting into hurricane season in the carribean. You can still go (and I have) but it’s a little riskier that time of year. An option is the islands like Aruba, Barbados, which are below the hurricane belt. Have so much fun!

There's been a spate of tourist deaths there. Unexplained.


It sounds to me like some of the resorts are watering down their drinks with something toxic, but obviously, I don't know.

Or it could be a big coincidence, as the resorts claim.

In any case, I could not, in good conscience, recommend anyone going there until this is all solved.

Ski resorts in Colorado in the summer are cheap. Get one with a private pool/hot tub, driving distance from Denver. Fly into Denver, pick up kosher food, research things to do in whatever area you are in. Hiking, swimming and biking are free.

Something like this?
