Snorkeling/beach trip Aug 22-31

Jump to last reply

My 13 year old son and I have 9 days to travel from the east coast to anywhere at the end of August. We prefer the thatched-roof, beach-side, off-the-beaten-path type places over the multi-floor/all-inclusive resorts. Island/destinations with less infrastructure preferred; we like the adventure. My son loves (&I enjoy) snorkeling, kayaking, rock-climbing, caving, zip-lines, dolphins/wildlife, swimming, fishing, hiking, grilled fish and virgin-margaritas. I'd love to relax on the beach part of the day and tour interesting ruins/avenues/cafes/sites in afternoons... meeting friendly locals and learning about the culture is a priority. I speak sufficient spanish. International travel welcome.

We've been to Roatan (2003), Bermuda, and Cozumel as well as Sharm El Sheik (Egypt) and would like to try a new place. Preferred budget of <$2500 inc airfare so we can do things like glass-bottom boats/swimming w dolphins etc.

I have heard various recommendations: Curacao, Grand Caymans, Cesme/Mersin in Turkey... I also looked into the Galapagos and Cook Islands (which are complicated to get to but not out of budget). It would be great to hear from anyone who has insight/ideas. Thank you!!!
