Best Snorkeling in Caribbean or Mexico/Central America w/o Breaking Bank

Jump to last reply

Hi! My husband and I went to Grand Cayman in May 2007, which was our first experience with snorkeling. We were blown away, never having seen the kinds of fish and other marine life as we did right outside our inn's door. We are trying to plan for a week long trip in or around Feb. 2011 to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary (actually in Nov. 2010!). We are not looking for luxury accomadations, or a place with night life. Here's a list of "if we could have exactly what we want":
- Good snorkeing right off beach (smoother waters preferred!), with a reef or better snorkeling by chartered trip for at least one day of trip, clear waters a must (as a rule, not asking for weather control, here!)
- Accomodations with A/C, quiet, safe, cable TV, kitchen
- Good places to eat!
- Maybe some kind of land day trip, like ruins?
- Not too hard to get to from Atlanta, GA
- Not too expensive (less than $5000) for everything
- Locals able to understand English...my Espanol is muy poquito (spelling?)!

Thanks, more may come to me as I think on this!
