Planning a trip for sep - destination suggestions?

Hi guys,

I'm trying to plan a vacation for september, I would like do a beach vacation, preferably all inclusive. My budget is 1500 canadian dollars. I have already been to the dominican and cuba, so would like to go somewhere new. Any suggestion on the destination?

weather2travel.com climate guides Sept. peak storm season down there. Aruba out of the storm belt cheapcaribbeaan.com
or better for me Dreams Cabo or princeresortshawaii.com for
less rain chance. konaweb.com stayhawaii.com where I usually go in fall less than 1 inch of rain per month on Kohala Coast.
priceline.com cheap packages $1K for a week at the Hapuna Prince for me last including car.Not AI though.

Good luck!

I'm not sure what the conversion rate from Canadian dollars to US is?

September is prime hurricane season, so Aruba, Curacao, and Barbados would be good options. However, those places tend to be expensive and AI is really not a good option.

Mexico or Jamaica would be your best options for an inexpensive AI vacation, but September is very iffy weather wise and it will be very HOT and HUMID. If you want to chance it just make sure you get the full trip insurance to cancel for any reason.

I'm willing to change the time I'm going it, so instead of september, how does november sound?

The first 2 weeks of November and the first 2 weeks of December are great choices for lower crowds, lower prices and better weather. We tend to go somewhere during those time periods every year. I have noticed though that Mexico in November/December the pools are too cool to swim in, but the ocean temps are fine. This past December we went to Ocho Rios and the pools were fine there.
