any international destinations that's open for visitors in August?

how about central America/Caribbean locations besides PR and Aruba?

edit: I wasn't on planning on going anywhere, but when I see $100 RT tickets to countries (central American/Caribbean), I have a hard time resisting.

I am slowly coming to terms with the fact that I will not be traveling out of the country this summer.

Any ideas for national park to start with? Never did any.

If I were to take advantage of the $12-$14 fare prices posted earlier today on DDMS, which destination should I choose?

Some of my questions are: What are the hotel/prices like in each city (for example a Hilton in Miami vs a comparable hotel in another city? Kosher accommodations? Available activities/sightseeing? If you recommend a specific location, what time of year is best to visit? Which destination is relatively a better deal at $14?

I'm really not the traveler type, so I have zero firsthand knowledge about locations, prices, accommodations, weather etc. so any input is much appreciated.
