I am planning our vacation for January 2015. We are a couple in our young 50's and have usually tried different places in Mexico...usually the Pacific side, which we loved. We don't usually stay in AI's, but would consider staying in an AI in a place unfamiliar to us. We were thinking of trying Costa Rica or Panama for a change. We like to relax on the beach, but we can't do that all day long, so we like to walk around or maybe check out the area to keep ourselves a little more active. But we are not zip line people or major hikers. Nor do we want to drive ourselves. Taking the bus or taxi in Mexico was how we got around there. It's a little overwhelming trying to decide where to go. From what I can see, Panama looks a little less expensive than Costa Rica. Any other considerations or suggestions on where or how to start?
