Vacation Help

I need to plan a vacation for the wife and I. We did China a few years ago, and then big sites in Europe over the last three years. Now I need a vacation for 4-7 days to plug in over Christmas. We really want to do Peru and the Inca Trail, but that's gonna have to wait until the spring when we have 10 days. Give me tips...I want decent weather (why be too cold or too hot), and somewhere that I can see things and do stuff (like ride bikes).

There seems to be some pretty cool vacations here. If you are a member it's even less expensive. They rate them according to activity level. (Easy, active, more active) or something like that. And there are cycling adventures too!

Dominican Republic.

It's a beautiful place, and some of the more popular areas are really welcoming to tourists.

I know it's pretty generic but Hawaii's tourism is way down so you would be able to get a great deal. Lost of riding on Oahu or Maui.
