Help! Island travel in August (from Minneapolis)

Jump to last reply

Dear travelers,

I have never been to the Caribbean since a beach vacation had never interested me before - but now I am ready to try sitting on an island away from all the stress of life and enjoy the slower pace. My boyfriend and I are hoping to go somewhere for 2 weeks in August - and the longer I am looking the more overwhelmed I feel. Help!

What I'm looking for:
- a place that is not completely overrun with tourists - it's fine if there is "nothing to do" there, e.g. no need for discos, etc.

- natural beauty, if possible some topography, not completely flat. A volcano would be ideal!

- someplace that's not insanely expensive (including the flights). We are fine with layovers and taking local boats and staying in small hostels/family owned pensions, no need for luxury and convenience.

Any leads for me? I had thought Providencia Island originally, but it would be great to find a place a little cheaper to fly to...

Thank you so much for any suggestions!

Yana
