Costa Rica, Guatemala, Belize, or Panama--which one?

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are planning 5-day trip in January. We have been to CR four times (Arenal, Manuel Antonio, and Monteverde) and absolutely love the country, the people, and the food. We are considering a fifth trip, but we are itchy to visit a new (perhaps less developed) country. We love hiking, rafting, and exploring, as well as getting to know locals (Long taxi drives are the best) and eating local fare (particularly arroz con pollo with Salsa). However, we also like our creature comforts and generally stay at upper end properties (Xandari, Peace Lodge, Finca Rosa Blanca). Good, local food is an absolute must.

I've read great things about La Lancha in Guatemala and the other Coppola properties in Belize. Also read good things about Chaa Creek. Our other option is to return to CR and stay at Cabo del Bosque. Other thoughts? So many places, so little time--HELP!!!
