The Destination Playa Conchas Chinas is a short stroll from downtown Puerto Vallarta, but a world away from the spring breakers and mega-resorts. In fact, previous visitors to Puerta Vallarta may be surprised that away from the noisy strip, they can actually hear the waves. Rocky cliffs and secluded coves make up the shoreline, with shells ground to a fine sand by the tumbling waves. This sophisticated community leverages its to-die-for scenery to attract an affluent crowd and countless fashion shoots. The Digs Quinta Maria Cortez is built into a steep hillside overlooking the beach and Banderas Bay. In sharp contrast to the sprawling hotels farther north, this villa-style bed and breakfast has only seven suites, meaning guests aren't just a room number and ensuring attention to detail (like imported soaps in the bathrooms). A warm, eclectic mix of Mexican antiques, local art, and open-air living areas lends a "Mexiterranean" vibe to the private-entry accommodations, many of which feature kitchenettes, bay-view balconies, and air-conditioned bedrooms. Even with 320 days of tropical sunshine per year, a cool breeze coming off the water keeps open-air spaces the perfect temperature, no thermostat needed. The Diversions Start your day with a gourmet breakfast under a shady palapa before venturing down to the secluded shore (no pushy beach vendors here). Or, bask in the sun on the rooftop—"among the best sunset-watching spots in town," according to Frommer's. When you want to cool off, consider a dip in the small pool or snorkeling in Banderas Bay. Quinta Maria Cortez also offers a range of spa treatments. Yes, you're away from the wet T-shirt contests, but the party isn't too far. In fact, it's just a five-minute cab ride (or a 15-minute stroll down the beach) to all the action. Check out Puerto Vallarta's dining scene with discounts at numerous fine restaurants—The River Café, El Arrayán, No Way José!, Barcelona Tapas, Archie's Wok, Red Cabbage Café, Trio Restaurant Bar & Café, and Vitea—then return to your suite, slipping between the crisp, white sheets and drifting off to the sound of crashing waves.

The Destination A collection of 450 islands dots the crystal waters of Belize Bay, and a stay on one of these secluded cayes is a private-island dream-come-true. "Running the entire length of the country's coastline, the Belize Barrier Reef is the second longest continuous barrier reef in the world," says Frommer's. "Here you will find some of the best snorkeling opportunities and scuba-diving sites in the world." Escape from reality with a trip to Fantasy Island, just a 30-minute boat ride from Dangriga Town, Belize. The Digs With three sunny overwater cabanas, Fantasy Island Eco-Resort looks more like a floating dream than luxury resort. Each private cabana is equipped with two queen beds, a private bathroom, a small lounge area, and a deck with lounge chairs where you can spread out and soak in the cool reef breezes that thrive in the shade of the Maya Mountains. The Diversions • Embark on a snorkeling or diving adventure with PADI-certified instructors • Take a kayak along the surface of the turquoise-blue Caribbean • Go fly-fishing in the peaceful shallows • Sup on island-inspired cuisine a stone's throw from your door • Take a trip back in time with an excursion through Mayan ruins • Explore the caverns of the legendary Actun Tunichil Muknal Cave
