40th bday where do we go?

Jump to last reply

My Best friend and I are planning a trip to somewhere in the Caribbean to celebrate our 40th birthdays and our 20 year friendship. She has been to many places as she goes on yearly cruises but has only been to one AI Resort. I have only ever been to one AI resort for my honeymoon 3 years ago...no cruises no other vacations so this one has to count as I probably won't get away anytime soon! lol
On my one trip, I went to Dreams Puerto Aventuras in Mexico. Loved it. She would prefer not to go to Mexico because I have already been there, but is open to anything. I think she would prefer Jamaica. We have looked at Jamaica, DR and Mexico. Obviously reading reviews can be very helpful and very overwhelming.
Here is what we are looking for: beautiful beach, safe resort, AI, relaxation, option to do excursions, great food, clean rooms, adult only would be preferable although a resort which has an adult only area would be an option. We want to be able to check out local merchants without travelling too far, we would like to have nightly entertainment at the resort, we are turning 40 remember so we would like to celebrate with some dancing and fruity drinks but we don't want a large party all night place every night...I should mention we are happily married women, so don't want a "hook up resort". The difficult part is we would like to stick to a budget of 1500-2000, airfare included (from Canada)and we can only travel in first or second week of July:(
I am looking forward to your feedback. Thanks in advance:)
