Time for a Change from Caribbean Travel: Where to in South America?

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.

We have never traveled to South America or Central America 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. Our dates of traveling due to our schedules has to be somewhere between Dec 28th-Jan4th.

I have no idea where to even begin looking and researching as I dont really know much about the areas/resorts. I know many of you will tell me to get a guide book first, but im really looking for some advice, opinions, so I can base my research off of your feedback. Thanks so much!
