Need Destination Advice for August with young kids

Jump to last reply

Hi, we have for years been dreaming of a Caribbean vacation but never had the chance. I am determined this year but need advice. We would like to travel last week of August and prefer a beach vacation. We could do short hikes but I would like to have a laid back beach vacation as much as it is possible with an 8 year old and 1 year old. We have a limited budget, hoping to stay within $2,500-$3,000.

I hear August is hurricane season, hoping we will be lucky to miss it. Any advice on destination, including resort vs house rent?

Thanks in advance!
