Two 60 something BFFs: zip line & beautiful beach-where to go?

We want it all in one week. Flying from Baltimore area to Caribbean. One of us has been to Aruba now we both want to give a zip line a try, staying safe and have beautiful beach, prefer upscale hotel such as Westin but open to suggestions? Help we need to begin our plan ..

you can fly nonstop from bwi to cancun. the maya riviera (south of cancun to tulum) is amoung the safest carib locations. more to do there than any island. good hotels. good beaches.
you can find tons of information at www.locogringo.com
for upscale perfection you might enjoy www.maromahotel.com

islands that offer zip lines are: jamaica, st. lucia, st. martin, antigua, dominica, st. kitts. also costa rica

I agree with the Riviera Maya area of Mexico.
Do you want all inclusive, adults only, boutique type hotel, etc???????

You can also zipline in St. Martin and St. Lucia. We've been to both islands and they are wonderful. Let me know if you have any questions about either. Both have nice hotels/resorts.

St. Martin is definitely the answer... Loterie Farm is fantastic, and the longest zipline I have ever seen....
http://loteriefarm.com/ Its super-easy to fly to SXM from Baltimore, and at the moment there are low fares, and great hotel promotions.
