Time for a change from the Caribbean...Where to next??? Please help!

Jump to last reply

Hi All! My husband and I, both in our early 30's are looking for a new adventure. We love to soak in the sun and warm weather, sightseeing, relaxing on the beach and by the pool, visits to the spa/fitness center, beautiful scenery, outdoor cafes, strolling the streets, people watching, new and fun cultures, Great food and wine, not feeling rushed. We are open to all suggestions, as most of our travel has been done in the Caribbean by staying on an island and cruising. Two yrs ago we spent an amazing honeymoon in Bora Bora, Tahiti, and Moorea. We also LOVED our time spent in Italy last yr in Rome, Florence, Ravello, and Capri. We loved the history as well as some down time. We prefer a little bit of both big city feel and small quaint city life or just the relaxation of island life.

We have never traveled to South America, Central America, or Mexico (honestly because I have been nervous about traveling to Mexico) nor have we ever thought about. I think it is time to see new places besides our beautiful Caribbean. We will be traveling from Newark and prefer a nonstop flight if possible. Our dates of traveling due to our schedules has to be somewhere between Dec 28th-Jan4th. I have heard wonderful things about Belize and Costa Rica.....what about others? We would love a resort feel with a spa, restaurant on site as well as great restaurants close by.

I know many will say to look at guide books, but because i dont even know where to start, I am hoping to get some advice and opinions and take your feedback to begin my research process. Thank u all in advance!
