We just came back from Cancun three days ago, and I am always craving more travel as soon as I get home! I have to admit this time though, we broke the piggy bank this year and I think we need to plan our trip closer and cheaper next year. The main reason we have done the all-inclusive trips for the past 3 years is that I already knew for the most part what our cost was, and all I had to worry with cash was our souveniors and tips. We have never taken our kids down to Schlitterbaun before, we did San Antonio a couple of times and had a great time. My main question is, if we were to do Schitterbaun and wanted to go back to San Antonio, where does anyone suggest that we stay at. I'm thinking a nice but affordable hotel, I don't want to rent a condo or anything that would probably force me to cook and do all kinds of "unvacation" things! I just think it takes so much more work to plan a vacation around Texas when they have such nice all-inclusive vacations in Mexico and beyound! Why doesn't the US get on the band wagon and offer such accomodations? I'm telling you, the hardest part of our trip is going through customs!
