Deciding on next destination

Jump to last reply

For lots of reasons we haven't been advance planners this year, so here we are in Nov. with no plans for our usual Jan/Feb 2 month max jaunt to warmer climes.

Just thought I'd see if I could get some inspiration/suggestions from Fodorites.
We've done Panama twice, CR 3x, and Mexico (several locations) several times as well.
We could go back and explore some of those again or do something new. We're in shape active geezers who like hiking, birding, nature but also urban pleasures like good food and interesting architecture, history, culture. We've seen a bit of Ecuador and Peru, but no more of South America. Am tempted by Colombia, Argentina, Chile.

We speak a little Spanish and like to practice it/go to classes. We also appreciate the lesser cost of visiting south . . We're game to find a great apt and settle in for full time, or to range about and visit say as many as 4 or 5 locations. . . of course, our resources aren't unlimited. Any Fodorites out there who want to rave their faves?
