Destinations similar to Caye Caulker/Amberguis

I spent a week in Caye Caulker this past month and loved it!!! I will definitely be back! However, I also like to try new places, so I thought I would ask you all.

Does anyone have another destination suggestion *similar* to the Cayes? (Laid back, fairly inexpensive, not packed with tourists, beaches, snorkeling, diving, etc.?) I know to most of you nothing can compare, but any close 2nds would be appreciated.

Thinking somewhere in Central America...Costa Rica? Guatamala?

I think Roatan might meet your requirements. Better diving and snorkeling than AC/CC and cheaper. A bit more run down perhaps and far harder to get to. Roatan has isolated dive resorts, a string of family oriented resorts along a beautiful beach, and small funky lodges in a hopping little town. I prefer it to Belize, although the people are not as friendly.

Did you mean other destinations within Belize or as the other post suggested, destinations outside of Belize, ie, other countries?

I agree with dhauk...Roatan, Honduras. Beautiful. You could also check into Utila.
