Help me pick spot for late January beach vaca with good snorkeling!

Jump to last reply

The more I research, the more confused I am! Any thoughts will be MUCH appreciated!

Planning a mid-to-late January trip somwhere warm...snorkeling and nice beaches are a must! Started researching Belize and Roatan but am a little put off by reports that January is rainy in those locations and Belize's beaches are not the nicest. Looks like the ABC islands will be warmest but we've already done Curacao, Bonaire seems to lack beaches and I have read conflicting reports about snorkeling in Aruba. Last year we visited St. John and enjoyed the snorkeling but not the Christmas winds so we are not sure if we should consider a BVI destination like Virgin Gorda. Would like to visit the Bahamas, Cozumel or T&C but these spots are too far north, not sure if the water or the night temps will be warm enough for us. We have already been to Barbados, Jamaica, St. Martin and parts of PR (not Vieques, very interested in this) but not sure if PR will be warm enough in Jan. We are interested in St. Lucia but have read that the snorkeling is only good near the Pitons. Should I look at Antigua? There are conflicting reports about the snorkeling. Dominica looks great but too hard/long of a flight from Boston.

Does anyone have any thoughts? What am I missing? We don't need fancy, just looking for peace and quiet on our vacation.
