Help planning romantic getaway for my wife to CR or Mexico

Jump to last reply

Hello, I follow some of the posts but have never posted anything regarding a getaway. I know this is the group to help!
I would like to take my wife on a getaway to help her relax and rejuvenate after a long period of difficult times for her.
She loves outdoors, warm weather and exploration.
We've been to Belize once. Loved it but weather near Placencia was very hit and miss and mostly it was a miss! May return to do a secluded caye?

Thinking of Costa Rica--perhaps Osa? Maybe that or Manuel Antonio. Please give thoughts on a good location for rest, good exploring, wildlife, adventure and good food!

Any thoughts on what is a great place in Mexico would also be welcome. I don't think AI is for us. But something that is near a beach and yet we could day trip to explore ruins or go snorkeling. Baja? Cancun? Riviera Maya? I don't know the areas at all--seems like there's a lot to compare.

Again I want this to have outdoor activities but also nice accommodations.
Thinking if it's under 400 per night would be best but I know some places I initially looked at were $500 (those had meals)
5 -7 nights if Mexico or Belize, but 8-9 nights if it is Costa Rica

Thank you!!
