I'm planning a 2 week trip for the beginning of April 2009 and I need a little advice on where I should go.
I'm 21 years old. I'll be Traveling with my cousin. About a $1200 budget for 2 weeks(or as long as I can affrod). I only speak english.
What I'm looking for:
Beaches (surfing would be a plus). Cheap local food. Cheap lodging (hostel maybe?). To relax and see this beautiful world
I'm not looking for:
Luxury, shopping, a touristy experience, fancy restaurants or a party scene/nighlife.
When I saw that I could fly round-trip from Seattle to the Caribbean for under $700 I began researching some islands. As of right now Peurto Rico seems like my best option, but I'd love to hear some input.
Here are some low round trip flight prices that make these places good looking options:
$439 SEA - San Jaun Peurto Rico
$513 SEA - Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
$486 SEA - Kingston, Jamacica
$642 SEA - Saint-Croix, USVI
$567 SEA - St. Martin
