We just got back from Costa Rica, and loved it!!! For our next trip, my wife and I are looking for something similar to Costa Rica (wildlife, lush green everywhere, beaches, etc.), but would like to snorkel as well.
1) Is Belize a similar experience to Costa Rica?
2) How's the snorkeling in Belize? We want to snorkel by ourselves...in shallow waters.
3) How's the water? Is it as clear and blue as the Caribbean waters? It looks like Belize is situated on the Caribbean side? I should really read maps more often than when planning vacations!
I think a mix of the Caribbean clear blue waters and the Costa Rica experience would be ideal....so....Belize then?
Hawaii was our first choice, but may not be feasible right now...
