My husband and I have been to Belize twice and also to Honduras and Guatemela. WE liked San Pedro/Ambergris the best. It doesnt' have the prettiest beach (that belongs to Placencia!), but has the widest range of water stuff to do...don't miss the "Blue Hole". It was a real highlight. The locals are very friendly, there's lots of activiites...kayaking, para-sailing, windsurfing, snorkeling, scuba diving. We loved it and didnt' want to leave. IN Honduras, try the BAy Islands....Roatan was great...West End beach was heavenly with snorkeling. Guatemala was awesome...we went to Tikal. Other folks said Antiga (old capital city) has gorgeous 17C architecture. The Western highlands are also gorgeous. Some have safety concerns regarding Guatemala and Honduras. I would check out the Canadian version of "State Department" and see what they say.
