I'm looking for suggestions on where to go on vacation next summer (late July, early Aug 2014) with my in-laws and their kids.
1) Within reasonable travel/flight time from Dallas, Texas. There will be four children on this trip, ages 1, 3, 5, and 7.
2) A house/apartment/bungalow to rent for around $2500/week to house 6 adults and the aforementioned four kids.
3) Good SCUBA diving for my father-in-law, brother-in-law, and myself (all with advanced open water).
4) Good beaches for my wife, mother-in-law, brother-in-law's wife, and the kids, preferably within easy access of the lodgings.
Thanks very much.
My family wants to have Thanksgiving in a central location for all of us. We've also talked in the past about renting a big house for all of us to get together in a beach town off season. Any suggestions on towns and/or specific properties or agencies that will result in a good holiday for all of us? [more inside]

My husband (A)'s family (parents, brother, sister-in-law, niece and nephew) are going on a trip in a couple of weeks. The trip has been planned for months, and he and I had decided long ago that it wasn't going to work for us this year. Yesterday, A. decided he wants to go. There are no hotel rooms available. We will have to stay on the pull out couch in his parent's room. I could use a reality check. Longer explanation inside. [more inside]

My boyfriend, my father, and I are going to take a trip together in
September. My boyfriend and I are in our early 30s, fairly active, and
are interested in beaches, ruins, rainforests/jungles, white water
rafting, and possibly scuba diving. My dad is in his late 50s, quite
overweight (like probably 150-200 lbs overweight), and enjoys luxury hotels, relaxing, and fun stuff that's not TOO physically taxing. I haven't seen him in a few years, but he may be interested in white water rafting and scuba diving, if his weight isn't an issue. We're looking at somewhere in Central America, most likely Belize or the Yucatan, but we're also considering Costa Rica and are open to other suggestions. [more inside]

We're looking for a fun place approximately equidistant* from Washington, DC and Columbus, OH to spend a long weekend in July or August. Six adults, 3 kids (ages 1 -6). We're hoping to find someplace reasonably priced. Camping is not an option with most of this crowd, and a place with a kitchen would be great. Any suggestions? [more inside]
