Where to go for a month to get our heads screwed on right?

Where would you go if you had a month to regroup, restore, and come up with life's Plan B? Difficulty: the month in question is July, 2014. Yep -- just over a week from now.
Mr. Nadise and I are at a crossroads in life. Our Plan A just fell through, and it's left us a bit lost in life. We're in our late 30s/early 40s, ridiculously happy together, sun-loving, and active. We just made the difficult decision to remain childless for life, after almost a decade of chasing the dream of parenthood. We need a place to go collect ourselves. We need a change in perspective, a chance to absorb our new normal, and to remember that we love our life. We'd love your best ideas on where to do this together.
Before I get too far: We're not interested in advice, anecdotes, or opinions on our decision to remain childless or the "you never know" kind of encouragement. We know those comments are all well-intentioned, but right now they're unhelpful. Thanks for respecting that.
And thanks for suggesting some locations for us! We love unique local culture and food. We're interested in beautiful beaches, hiking, SCUBA, interesting urban spots, and a little night life. The more local/authentic and less touristic the better. We speak English and some Spanish. We're not interested in lodging in loud/dirty hostels, but are not interested in isolated/all-inclusive resorts, either. No structured programs like yoga retreats either -- we'd like to own our time and make the experience we want to have.
We've been considering Thailand (but it looks like there's unrest there right now), Mexico (but we've been there a lot and want something new), Ambergris Caye in Belize (will it be empty this time of year?)... We'd love some more ideas.
