      You might try Todos Santos. It's a really cool vibe. I love Cabo (obviously - getting married there), but you might find it a bit too commercial feeling for you.

          Hi,

          Check out www.thecrane.com in Barbados. It's gorgeous, has roman pillars by a cliff overlooking the water that would be an amazing setting. I was completely interested in it until I discovered they're not all-inclusive. Some of my friends won't go if it's not and since free drinks are always good, I'm going to conceed to their wishes. Would have loved to go here though...

            Check out the Jaguar Paw in belize (it's in the rainforest about an hour's drive from Belize City I thik it may really have what you're looking for. Here's the website: http://www.jaguarpaw.com/
            I've known a few people who have stayed here and loved it. On a map it would be closest to Belmopan. I'm not sure how many rooms they have but I think you could rent out the whole place with 20 people.

            There's also the island on Ambergris Caye (in Belize again) this is Belize's main tourist spot but there aren't any AIs or anything like that - it's still one small town (San pedro) and then spanning out from there are hotels, bungalows, villas, etc. To get there you need to take a flight (cheap and 15 minutes) from Belize City or a ferry. There's no cars on the island only golf carts.

            For something with the same island feel but even less touristy you can check out Caye Caulker (another island).

            If you DO decide on Belize I would stay away from some of the Northern parts (corozal/orange walk areas for example) - the beach stinks and it's not very picturesque. In the south part of the country there are some amazing places (Punta Gorda and Placencia are suppose to be nice but still pretty undiscovered.)

            Costa Rica is a lot more expensive than Belize or other less "discoverd" places. The area in and around San Jose wouldn't be great but there are some amazing rainforest/up in the mountains type places (they are expensive).

            In Honduras the island of Roaton is suppose to be nice as well but again it may be expensive.

            And if you want REALLY off-the beaten path Nicaragua is a safe and undiscoverd parasdise (or so I hear).

            If you want something in mexico what about Loreto? It looks really lovely and I think Alaska Airlines flies there.

              I spent a week in St. Kitts - and it was absolutely gorgeous. I can't name any other resorts other than the Marriott where we stayed, but it was beautiful, and the staff was incredibly nice. There were many resorts that were less "touristy" as well.

                We are seriously looking at the Marriott St Kitts. Did you find it to be overwhelming? Its really WAY bigger & resortier that I originally wanted, but Im hoping that because Kitts is not that popular, it wont be too bad. There are alot of small plantation style inns, but those are too small. St Kitts doesn't seem to have an in between size, so I though it was riskier to go too small than too big. It seems like theres plenty of adventures to be had while still getting the beach & some ac in the room. Im all for exotic but I really dont really want to sleep under a breezy mosquito net the day of my wedding. Any suggestions for things to do & places to go are much appreciated!

                  It is a large resort, no doubt, but they have a bunch of smaller building in addition to the main hotel - so it didn't seem that large on the grounds. THey have a casino in the hotel, which was nice. We did some deep sea fishing, and ventured to a couple other restaurants. But St. Kitts is definitely in the process of being built up - it's nowhere near Cabo yet! Let me go through my stuff to see if I can give you more info. - I'll tr yto find my pics too.
