Hi!
I want to go somewhere at the end of July for 5 weeks, I had my heart set on India but the monsoon is putting me off...
Does any one have any suggestions of places that are good to visit at this time of year?
I like a bit of everything, the natural, manmade, crazy and calm. I am a keen diver and love the beach but also would like a bit of hiking/trekking...
I can take the heat but rain :-(
ANY suggestions or advice would be great!

Thanks

" a keen diver and love the beach but also would like a bit of hiking/trekking" and no Europe.
Hi!
I'm not fan of Asia, so, my Asian expirience is limited.
But if it's not abt Asia - then I would say you Latin America. It's enough exotic and great dive spot + tracks, nature, very interesting culture(s) and all the rest. But August is rain season in most of countries. Tropical rains is serious thing - means you cant do jungle and many other things. What i think abt, as the region is huge (from Mexico to Chilie) - it can't be a prob. everywhere. If it sounds you like n idea - you may check up abt climate in specific countries.
I have been in Central America few years ago (incl. dive) and can't wait to return back to this region. I didn't have enough time to go South, but next time I will do. In 6 weeks you may "do" 2-3 countries, if they are not too large (Not size of Brazile or Mexico, but alike Guatemala or Costa Rica).
