Where to go on vacation?

Jump to last reply

Looking for a recommendation for vacation spots for my boyfriend and I. Here are the parameters:

Going in January-February

Length of stay is NOT an issue

Has to be around $5000 or under

Must have scuba diving (for him)

Must have a nice beach as well as adventure activitiies to do (for me!).

Ideally, we would spend some time laying on the beach relaxing and some time doing active things like hiking, running, zipline, cliff jumping, snorkeling, etc. I would like somewhere that isn't super touristy but I also don't want to feel unsafe traveling around. I am not really looking to stay in an all-inclusive where I feel stuck on the resort because the surrounding areas are not that nice. We don't need 5 star accomodations but I need somewhere with running water and fairly nice ammenities. We are leaving from upstate NY.

First thoughts were places like: Belize, Curacao, Bora Bora, St. Lucia, Hawaii, Thailand. Any thoughts to any of these destinations or where else should we consider? Thanks!
