Costa Rico Four Seasons vs Turks and Caicos vs Capella Cabo

Need help on deciding on 5 day trip next week. Costa Rico Four Seasons vs Turks and Caicos vs Capella Cabo vs Ritz Carlton Cayman??
Just hubbie and me. Leaving kids at home.....Looking for luxury, beautiful water and pools, and hotel.

A little nervous about Mexico these days.

I believe that is Costa Rica.

Costa Rica is completely different from Cabos, and both are completely different from T&C and Caymans.

T&C has the most beautiful water of your choices-the most gorgeous hues of turquoise, top in the world. Both T&C and Caymans are flat scrubby islands with gorgeous beaches.

Cabos is hilly but desert looking, and ther are undercurrent in the water. I don't know where you're coming from, but you'll loose a lot in travel if coming from East Coast, for only 5 days.

Costa Rica has lush landscape, fun zip lining terrific coffee, but the beaches are far superior in T&C.

i went to costa rica a while back and it was a very good trip. love the volcanoes!!!and their beach!!!mexico scares me too, they are even killing tourists there, and it's such a beautiful country...turks and caicos would be my bet. went there two weeks ago, i'm still dreaming about the water...stayed at seven stars, great luxury, wake up and see the turquoise waters... my dream come true. you will love it!!i will certainly go back to t&c.

Where are you coming from? With only 5 days, I'd probably pick the destination closest to you, with the shortest flights.

There's no problems in resort areas of Mexico like Los Cabos. Nothing.
