Family Air Miles Trip in December: please help me decide where to go

Jump to last reply

We've been carefully adding to our air miles on American Airlines and it looks like we have enough for our family of 4 to fly to one of these countries in December:
Costa Rica
Belize
Nicaragua
Columbia
Venezuela
Peru
Ecuador

Our 'kids' are 27 and 18. We like hiking, cultural activities (ruins, churches, cities, other cultures), food. I like snorkeling but others get bored or burnt at the beach so we can't do more than a couple days of that. We prefer to avoid tourist-heavy areas. Cost is a factor: I want it to be pretty inexpensive.

I picked up a stack of guidebooks at the library, read through trip reports (love all the great blogs w/ photos!) and would like some input now into what you've loved. After what I've read, Nicaragua and Peru sound appealing.
