Westin Resort & Spa (not Lagunamar) is a tremendous value for points

Open to other places but prioritizing convenience and price too

Good call. My timeline would be mid December so most rates are low enough that I’d save the points and pay cash for any places

Used to go every year to the JW in Cancun. Now with the crime, no way. Go to Grand Cayman. Both the Marriott and Ritz are great on 7 Mike beach. Last hurricane almost demolished all Cancun's beach. Be safe!

I stayed at the Westin in grand cayman and loved it! It used to be a really good redemption but I think they recently raised it.

Grand Caribe was nice

Is consulting really even worth it anymore if I have to pay for my own food now and travel moving forward is going to be at the max 1/3 of what it used to be (if things are ever “normal” again) so all those benefits we forced ourselves to accept as worth are now gone?

If you entered a higher SES than your immigrant parents and live pretty different lives (e.g., urban hcol, suburban lcol), how do you think about financial responsibilities to parents? Starting to get some real big bonuses and still aspiring towards personal goals (real estate, travel, future kids, etc.), but curious how others allocate their good fortunes (and if SOs agree) Nice gifts? Vacations? Covering mortgages? Offer parental allowance / Encouraging earlier retirement to enjoy life?
