My boyfriend and I (27 and 29) are trying to plan a trip. We were originally thinking of going to Playa Del Carmen (Riviera Maya) however he was told Panama might also be a good option. This is what we are looking for:
Nice hotel on the beach
Walking distance to restaurants, bars, some nightlife
Easily accessible to outdoor sports- snorkeling, zip lining, hiking, kayaking, etc..
We are willing to pay a decent amount of money but don't want to go overboard. In addition, I don't want to have to do a lot of planning in regards to getting around. Ideally I'd like us to be able to have a home base then go on various day excursions from there. Is this possible in Panama, or are we better off sticking to PDC? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
