I have always wanted to go to Atlantis but never been able to because of cost and wanting to find someone to go with me. My husband has accumulated enough miles on American for a friend and I to go next year. My husband has no interest in going.
The plan would be to use my husbands American miles for the two flights and points at Choice Hotels (the Comfort Suites) for 6 nights. Taxes and housekeeping charges should make 6 nights in a basic room including breakfast to be around $250 and the taxes and other fees on the airfare should make it around $200 for the 2 flights. I also have parking points to park our car free at the airport.
Except for the fact that I may get bad flights time wise because I am using miles, what am I not thinking about? How much would I expect a cab be from the airport to the hotel? Can I bring a cooler with food and drinks into Atlantis? Should I ask the taxi driver to stop at a store on the way to the hotel? If so, where should I ask him to stop and how much should it cost? Is most of the stuff at Atlantis free after you get in?
It dawned on me the other day that we would need to make sure our passports are still valid. I was wondering what else I did not think of. What time of year would be best to go when the kids are still in school, not around a holiday, but usually good weather?
Thanks ahead of time for any suggestions.
