My family (my lovely wife, our 6 year old boy and me) are planning a vacation this summer (January / February). We live in Chile, and would like to have a cheap/medium price vacation somewhere in Central America, Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela, Brazil or the Caribbean.
We've done the all-inclusive resort thing (in Aruba and Punta del Este) and are looking for something cheaper and less packagey.
We'd like: awesome beach, cheap food and lodging, interesting city/town to explore. It could be 2 places (e.g.: a city + a beach town), spending a week in each, if there's no one place that matches all our requirements. It should be low-key enough to let my son run free as much as possible. We're thinking of looking for accommodations on Airbnb, not a hotel.
What cool, tropical, Latin American vacation spot would you recommend?
