Travel - input needed!

So Eric and I are planning a big 11th anniversary trip for July (would have done 10th but Cami surprised us!). We have thought a LOT about it and settled on 2 very different choices. I seriously want input because we can NOT decide!

We want a place where weather will be good in July, not too far, easy to call home, some adventure, luxury accommodations, beach, and fairly relaxing.

So we have...

1. Costa Rica - thinking 5 nights on the coast in Guanacaste at the Four Seasons

Or the Westin
http://www.starwoodhotels.com/westin/property/overview/index.html?propertyID=3560

Both were on the recent Travel and Leisure Magazine list for best resorts in Central America.

Then we would go to the Arenal Volcano area (close enough to do a day trip.) for 2 nights. I think we may stay here:

Or here:

Totally different place, most biodiverse place in the world, adventurous. Top-notch accommodations. Looks amazing.

2. Stay at Sandals Antigua - no planning anything and free scuba trips. We can't scuba but have always wanted to learn. They teach for free and you can go right out after. Very relaxing. Super AI, so no worries.

Input please!

Tough choice, but either way you'll have a great vacation! Id probably go for costa rica. I think you guys would have so much fun and it sounds more adventurous! Antigua is definitely on my list though. Let us know what you decide!!

I do think Costa Rica would be more adventurous and maybe more memorable.

H fishes in Costa Rica every year and loves it. It might be nice to have an all inclusive resort though to where you wouldn't have to worry about planning activities. Both places sounds great!

Thanks for your input! The Westin is AI, but the Four Seasons is not. Something to think about. I'll also check out the link you posted!
