I'm looking to travel south of the USA sometime between Aug 26-Sep 24th for ~ 1 week.
Some options considered:
(Note: Cancun reserved for a spring break)
Biggest interest: exploring and learning who I am through seeing the world; a unique thing to an area which contributes to personal development. I want to see what is out there in life to experience - not just go and vacation on a chair!
Other Interest in: enjoying warm waters/bad weather ruining everything, foods, beginner scuba diving (no license), exploring the city/area, experiencing what makes "this place" special, an area with people who are easy to interact/communicate with (not cold shouldering you) during my visit to X
Not interested in: Drugs, History, museums, Dangerous areas/situations, regular-life things, hiking my entire trip to sight see in a forest, language barrier making communicating too difficult.
Budget: $800 limit on airfare each; preference to stay below $2000 with a $2500 per person limit.
Likely to have one friend come along, but most likely traveling solo.
Can Drive; strongly prefer not to use vehicles vacations but can
Only Language: English. Spotty Spanish; can't survive on it.
Caucasian/native American - sunburn prone skin but with almost no history of severe tan/sunburns.
Can't dance too well
Have a passport -- no visas in it though.
New to traveling outside states/canada
