Would going on a vacation with a sprained ankle near full recovery make things worse?

In brief: Depends

That would depend on what you are doing on vacation.
Doing a lot of walking, running, or climbing on uneven ground risks reinjuring the ankle or retearing the ligament. The ankle is also less able to sense changes in position as well after an injury. However, if you are going to be doing casual walking or lighter activity, i'd say go for it!
