Where to go in August?

Postby baga_azul » Tue Nov 14, 2017 4:16 pm

Hi everyone! Next year we have to go on holidays in August and I hate this month, have no idea on where to go. We were thinking of Cuba or Costa Rica, but August doesn't look like the best time. We live in Europe, and would like to go somewhere else. Weather shouldn't be too hot. Thanks for ideas!

Have you thought about South America? Late August in Peru is nice. It does get cold in the highlands but its the dry season.

Western Canada is also a great place. Okay, I do live here so am prejudiced but it is a beautiful place.

I did a 2.5 week bus tour in Scandanavia in August. Fantastic time of the year to enjoy that part of the world. Iceland would probably be great at that time of year.

In Peru I've been before, and I loved it. Iceland, Scandinavia, Canada, all sound like great places for August. We like nature and it's not too hot (I'm just afraid if there are huge mosquitos like I met once in Northen Sweden in August). I'm just wondering if a bit of excitement factor is missing, as it's all very... "european"? :-)
