HELP, Where to go family of four Christmas and Snorkeling!

Jump to last reply

Hello, We are two adults and two girls 12 and 13. I've been reading about all the islands and don't know what looks best for us. This is what we are looking for:

Great, easy snorkeling.
Small bungalow or accommodation on or very near beach with kitchen. Would consider resort or hotel if it was laid back. Prefer quiet and safe.
Affordable and hopefully no need for car rental. Would like to stay almost 2 weeks.
Prefer quieter over hugely active. One adult loves nature, natural parks and seclusion and the rest like nature and a bit of activity nearby.
Good swimming and long walks on the beach.
Possibly horseback riding on beach.

Have looked at Turks & Caicos and looks good but more on expensive side. Snorkeling looks great. Not sure about Curacao, but that seemed like a possibility. Thought of Mexico (have been to Tulum) or Costa Rica but the Caribbean waters sound fantastic? We live in the desert and would love the girls to experience turquoise water great beach and snorkeling.

Any thoughts anyone on where to go and any specific accommodations to check out?

THANK YOU!
