My husband and I are celebrating our 5 yr anniv this May and want to celebrate with a trip to either Mexico or the Carribean. We celebrated our honeymoon in Kauai and fell in love with the island, but have recently been back and we'd like to explore other areas such as either Mexico or the Carribean. We like to have some sense of adventure, neither one of us are big on just drinking and lounging every day by the pool. I'd like some sort of water sport (surf, kayak, paddle boarding) and hiking if possible. We'd also like somewhere with decent food. We've looked into AI's for these regions and got inundated with results and even more so by customer reviews. We've looked at staying at Secrets, but after reading through the reviews we're a bit hesitant to book, since neither one of us have ever stayed at an AI. And we're not food snobs, we just want good food and service. And we're not tied into staying at an AI either..
We don't like beaches that are like Waikiki, somewhat beautiful, but crowds everywhere and not an "island" feel at all. If anyone can give us recommendations on where to go and stay we'd be much obliged!
Where we've considered:
