I left my holiday vacation planning until the last minute and I'm at my wits' end as to where I can take a warm, relaxing vacation at any time between Dec. 21st and Jan. 5th without spending my life's savings. Any ideas or frugality resources?

Here are my parameters: I'd like to take off for any length of time between 5 and 14 days between the stated dates, and I'd like to spend <1000 on airfare and around ~100/day or less for lodging if possible, somewhere warm, beachy-relaxing, and walkable (I don't want a car). I'll need a reliable internet connection, and I'd like it to have a little bit of a social scene so I'm not by myself the entire time. Hostels and the potential to practice some Spanish are great, but I don't want to have to spend more than, let's say 4 hours traveling from an airport to my final destination by bus or other public transportation (still don't want a car).
Is this doable this last minute and given the expensive time of year? Any suggestions for location, things to do at said location, and/or resources to do this cheaply would be hugely appreciated!
