Never backpacked before so advise or ideas welcome and much appreciated!
We are a couple in our mid 20's, not looking to party and do the backpacker thing and stay in hostels and really cheap accommodation but Don't want to miss it all staying in 5* accommodation being waited on hand & foot but as long as its somewhere comfy, clean, close to the beach and local attractions with lots of places to eat around we'll be happy.
Any trips recommend whilst in the areas you can recommend?
We are travelling mid oct to mid nov, what do we need to have booked prior to travelling as I am aware nov is then high season.
