I’ve been to the Caribbean in August a few times, and at least early in the month there’s not a huge risk of hurricanes – but don’t forget Florida has been one of the worst-hit places as well in the last few years, it’s not just the islands, so you need to weigh up that risk as well.

I don’t know how the Atlantic hurricane season impacts the Pacific coastal areas, so that may be a safer bet.

For culture, history and beaches, Puerto Rico or Dominican Republic might fit the bill if you decide against Mexico. I’d say Cuba but that might not mix well with a US itinerary just now!
