Looking for "undiscovered"/"off the beaten path" spot to "pop the question"

Jump to last reply

I originally posted this question here - http://www.fodors.com/community/travel-tips-trip-ideas/looking-for-undiscovered-destination-for-pop-the-question.cfm A poster suggested I repost in this section instead. There have been some great suggestion in that post that I'm considering. One of my faves was the Tree House Lodge in costa rica, but the 5hr transfer from the air port is a little bit of a turn off.

Basically I'm looking to take my girl friend somewhere in late November. I plan to ask her to marry me while on this trip so I'm looking for something unique. Something "undiscovered" (if there is such a thing) or "off the beaten path". I'd like to keep flight times under 12hrs (preferably under 8hrs) flying out of DFW. We will be staying for 5 to 8 days where ever we go and am open to spending $5-$6k. I'm looking for a good mix of Nature and luxury/spa, but I think its going to be easiest to split the trip between two destinations. 1st destination to a quite off the beaten path eco lodge, then the 2nd to a luxury spa hotel. Where ever we go a beach is a must. I'm trying to avoid any of the popular spots like Cancun, Bahams, St. thomas, ect... I don't want to completely lock out Mexico but I'm hoping for something further south. So probably more Central and South America. We are looking for more of a traveler experience that a tourist experience. We are hoping to get some real sense of the local culture not a watered down version. We are both foodies and love to cook so a location with robust local cuisine is a huge plus. A cooking class with local fare would be awesome.

So in a nutshell.. pop the question, romantic, jungle, beach, food, undiscovered/Off the Beaten Path, Spa, eco-lodge-ish, not touristy or commercial, and under 12hrs flight from Texas,USA. Tall order I know, but maybe someone out there doesn't mind sharing their secret spot. PM me if you prefer. Any suggestions?
