Where to spend a month or two this winter

Jump to last reply

I'm considering spending a month or two someplace warm this winter, and would like to solicit ideas on possible locations in the Caribbean. I telecommute, and would plan on continuing to work while away, so this would be more a relocation than a vacation per se. I'm not a tourist compound kind of person, so am not looking for a condo rental in some big development for foreigners. Ideally I'd like to find a reasonably priced (less than $2,000/mo) rental (with kitchen, internet) someplace close to or on the beach, preferably also close to a jungle, and in or within walking or bicycling distance of a town. I'll be alone, so safety is a concern, as is not too, too much isolation(!) A place with an expat community or the opportunity for organized excursions would be good. Proximity to snorkeling, preferably from off of a beach, would be fantastic, as would some interesting (but benign) wildlife (I'm a biologist). Easy transportation to/from an airport would also be nice. Is this too much to ask?

Probably the closest I've found so far is Cahuita/Puerto Viejo in Costa Rica, both beautiful places, though a bit difficult to get to and maybe a bit small to spend more than a few weeks in. I'm thinking there must be somewhere in the region that fits the bill, but after weeks of searching various forums and websites my head is spinning, so I figured I'd ask those in the know.

Thanks for any advice.
