Where to start??
You have visited real tourist areas and if you like them, you may want to start your search there. Most people on this forum don't live in such places, though quite a few do and like them. Many are most helpful.
This is a good place to start, but you need to check out very specific information on the places that appeal to you. Use the internet and read some books. People here can give you good references for books to read. Others, such as Tony Burton, have written absolutely essential books and can be wonderful references. Based on the tone of your posting, you would very much like Don Adams' Head for Mexico - good information given in a most entertaining manner.
Also, always remember, this is a forum of opinion and sometimes half-baked and erroneous information. People such as Ed and Fran, Rollie, RV Gringo (who has written a book that I want to read, but have not yet, so can't recommend, though I'm sure is quite valuable), and others will give you lots of good solid information. Others, such as I, provide the half-baked information and, according to my semi-anonymous private poster detractor, half witted opinions.
