By Aimee Heckel
You know you want a vacation, but you just don’t know where to go.

Jauntaroo calls itself a “vacation matchmaker.”
Here’s how it works. Pick what you want in your vacation, spanning vibe, activities, geography, weather and budget. Then website will suggest the most compatible of 300 worldwide destinations for you.
For example: If you are leaving from Denver and you want a vacation that is off-the-beaten-path with water activities on an island with warm weather and you can only spend $750 per person, Jauntaroo recommends an excursion to San Juan, Puerto Rico, with temps in the high 80s. The website estimates airfare to be around $455 and a hotel for $237.

The searching process took all of 30 seconds, which is a heck of a lot quicker than scouring website after website, piecing together your perfect vacation yourself.
If you want a family-friendly vacation with landmarks in the mountains with mild weather for $750 per person, Jauntaroo recommends Yellowstone National Park (airfare $422, hotel $109).
A romantic vacation with plenty of nightlife in the city with hot weather for $750 per person: Orlando, Fla. ($308 airfare, $91 hotel), followed by Vegas. Swap out nightlife for beaches and instead you get St. Thomas ($472 airfare, $187 hotel).
Jauntaroo books its tickets through Expedia.com.
