I'm looking for feedback and posting this in a few forums. We're a family of 4 with an 18 & 22 year old. Looking to travel in July for about 10 days. Would like activities like hiking, zip lining, kayaking, horse back riding, etc as well as some "down time" for relaxing a bit also. I picked these 2 locations that we've never been to. They have a lot of similarities and differences as well. We're from NJ and I'm looking to compare experiences, costs, travel time etc. Any pros or cons, weather its the time of year, strength of US $ or personal experience would be appreciated.
