Where to surf/snorkle/beach - Belize or Costa Rica?

Jump to last reply

Hubby and I love to get away from it all. Beach is a must, snorkel or diving for me and (if possible) surfing for him. We like returning to St. John, Jost Van Dyke, V. Gorda, Cancun, Mazatlan (quick trip from Phoenix!). Not going back: Turks Caicos, Puerto Vallarta, Cozumel, Nassau. We actually surfed on Tortolla and St. John. He loves Oahu for that but we are not in to that color of ocean. Carib turquoise is for us.

He works for US Airways so we must fly where ever they go, which limits us. Also, we have baby twins who will stay with family, so maximizing time is important. Under 15 hours with a red eye is preferred.

That leaves BVI, Antigua, Belize and Costa Rica. We are traveling mid May or early June.

I have no clue where to begin my search! Does Costa Rica compare with Belize (in June?). beaches great? too much crime in CR to relax? I started reading posts and it sounds sketchy with car rentals, at least...

Many thanks for any input!
