Can you still find a deal on a late December vacation?

Not really. Hotels and airlines are full, and prices are sky high to most places you would want to go, especially in warm-weather destinations. 

But I am a miracle worker. So when Conde Nast Traveler asked me to come up with a list of nine still affordable vacation destinations for later this month, I gave it a go. 

Go for and take a read for yourself. Then tell me if I skipped anywhere. 

My wife and I are headed to London just after Christmas. London, for good reason - it is cheap in December, mainly because it is cold and dark - is No. 4 on my list.
