Snap! So did i!

I'm pretty certain you'd be able to get a holiday for 2 to cancun for ?2000, just had a quick look on the thompson site and prices start at ?814 per person (although i didn't look at the details of it)

Might be worth a look [Y]

Sheesh kebab, I did Cancun in October 05 for about ?1,800 for 2 of us. Be aware that May/June to September/October is hurricane season though. We stayed at the Riu Tequila in Playa Car. All of the Riu hotels aren't too bad at all.

Gray, what part of July are you going? If you wander into the school holidays, it's going to be more expensive. If you can go early part of July or late June, you'll probably get much better deals. I'd also recommend Mexico or Domincan if you don't mind a quieter holiday. I've been to both, all inclusive in the school hols for less than ?3k. Thoroughly recommend either. Stayed at Riu hotels in both and they're superb.

My parents have a villa in Paphos in Cyprus. I was out there the last 2 years in July, all I would say is it is mega hot. Last year it didnt drop below 100 degrees between mid day and 16:00hrs every day,

Where in Cyprus do you want to go? both ends of the Island are very different. If you want some where lively then I would suggest going to Ayia Napa as the night life is good. If you want more of a relaxing holiday thats a little more upmarket then I would suggest Paphos.

Been to Paphos for the last 2 years, once for a wedding and once for a free villa of the wedding organiser.

Great country, hot, drive on the left and very friendly. Found a nice nineyard, get me a bottle of merlot if you go[:p]

I went in November 05 and the weather was good considering hurricane Wilma had just passed. I'll post a few pics in a min for you. I don't think it dropped below 75-80 and only had a little rain.
