It’s a good thing we will be giving Mexico a second visit while sailing the Pacific, as we really can’t get enough of tequila and tacos.

Home to the second largest barrier reef in the world and three of the four atolls in the Western Hemisphere, Belize welcomes new friends with some of the friendliest folks in the Caribbean. Boasting 237 miles of sandy coastline and 236,000 acres of lush rain forests, here one could stand with one foot in the jungle and one fin in the sea. Island hop through the many Cayes, snorkel colorful reefs, befriend nurse sharks, rays, whale sharks and dive into the Great Blue Hole.

Each island boasts a unique experience.

Costa Rica

Who doesn’t want to befriend a monkey? Well there is much more than monkeys to explore on Costa Rica’s Caribbean coastline. Explore black sand beaches, visit the Jaguar Rescue Center (nope not the elusive Jaguar Shark, we’re talking cats), dive wrecks and reefs, and discover the diversity of the Refugio Nacional Gandoca-Manzanillo.
