Need help in choosing a vacation spot for spring 2013

Jump to last reply

Hello Fodorites,
Back from summer vacation and need to start thinking about Spring break :) We are looking at no more than 5-6 nights at end of March, traveling with 2 kids, ages 7 and 11. They both are very well traveled.

Since we did a a big Europe trip in Summer we would like to do a beach get away. But my kids (and us) love to do some adventure stuff, excursions, i.e. zip lining, snorkeling and any other activities they are allowed to do.

Also, we would love to be able to rent a villa this time (preferably part of a resort) to have a different experience.

Here are the places we have been to already:

Bahamas,
Anguilla,
Aruba,
PV, Mexico
St. Thomas and St.John.

Honestly, I didn't like the beach in PV at all, but loved the excursions.

Loved the waters in Anguilla and St.Thomas, but we want to try something new.

Any ideas? I am thinking about Puerto Rico, Belize, Costa RIca (although beach doesn't seem to be that great) and may be different part of Mexico if the water is better than PV.

Are there any other places in Mexico that has better beaches than PV and shorter flights ? (not Cancun in spring break :)

Thanks a lot for your help,
Kush
