Suggestions for destination that fits this bill?

Jump to last reply

Hi! My fiance and I are trying to decide on a travel destination. We have 1-2 weeks to spend in June, travelling from NE US and looking at/around the Caribbean.

We previously spent a long time in Treasure Beach, Jamaica. We loved that and are looking to replicate some of those aspects in a new locale. For ex:
-Day trip to beautiful waterfalls (could sub in other nature adventures besides just waterfalls specifically)
-Beaches
-Authentic, local culture (TB is a small town, we could happily be in a larger one but we did love that it wasn't too touristy)
-Places to eat, walk around (good food is a huge plus)
-Friendly vibes, new people to chat with
-Memorable sites/things to visit (for ex, we went to Pelican Bar, a bar built in the middle of the ocean)

We also visited Negril, and we loved how gorgeous the beaches were but it was so touristy and developed. I'd love to visit somewhere dialed back from that. Nightlife wise we're not big for clubs or anything but we like a bar and some music in the evenings. (Side note, we're both 30.) We don't care at all about shopping or gambling. Beaches, nature, culture, people and food are our main priorities.

Oh yeah price: this trip is celebrating my finishing grad school, so we're hoping to keep it affordable. Luxury locations aren't a great fit.

Does any area come to mind that fits this description? We're also down to visit different parts of one country within reasonable driving distance. Thanks in advance for the expertise and recommendations!
