Looking for a vacation in August

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend and I are looking for a vacation that is beyond a beach, we love the warm weather, but love to have the option of adventure and lots of activities. We just got back from Costa Rica and loved it, we'd love to go back, but not sure of the weather in August? We are open to any ideas...here's what we like

a little off the beaten path
few people
adventure activities close by
socialize with the locals
nice beaches

Dislikes

too touristy or peak season
resort areas
commercialized

Our budget is not too limited, don't want anything that will take too long to get there...we live in North Carolina.
Would love to go somewhere in Central or South America, but would consider Europe too.

Thanks in advance!
