Well the flight from LAX must be a long one, so you either want to fit as much as you can in or relax a bit. Between choices of Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, or Nassau, I would say Costa Rica is your best bet for most to do. You can fly into San Jose, head straight to La Fortuna for a little active volcano viewing, then either head to the Pacific side (like Manuel Antonio Natl. Park) or the Carribean side (Puerto Viejo or Tortuguero) for some r&r mixed with a LOT of cool wildlife viewing - sea turtles, monkeys, and sloths can be found on both coasts. I was in Costa Rica for 7 days and managed to hit La Fortuna, Tamarindo (on the Pacific side) and Puerto Viejo (on the Carribean side), along with a day white water rafting trip in the interior (Exploradores Outdoors is an outfit that will pick you up in Puerto Viejo, take you rafting on class 1V rapids, feed you, and then deposit you back in San Jose at night in time to catch an early morning flight the next day.)
