We have been back in Mexico for almost two months now and have realized that we are so happy here not only because we love Mexico. After traveling to so many beaches around the world, we now know we prefer the Caribbean: its crystal clear Caribbean water, non-existent waves and soft, white sand.

Of course we find beaches that we love in other places, like on Koh Rong in Cambodia or Samara in Costa Rica, but the Caribbean combines true beauty and utter relaxation in a way that we just can’t resist. And even though we’re leaving this beautiful patch of Mexican playa next week, I am sure it won’t be long until we’re back on the Caribbean sea.

Where is your favorite beach in the world?

Oh, this pic just got be excited about my upcoming trip to Belize - even though the beaches there don't look quite that great in the posts that I find. Already went through your blog and found some posts on it too (ATM, Caulker Caye). Fun, fun, fun! I think we'll skip ATM this time (it kind of scares me and we don't have much time in the area, so we might go cave tubing or canoeing instead).

Oh, you're going to Belize, how awesome! We had such a good time there - I hope you'll enjoy it, too! Caye Caulker was such a cool little place. That beach in the polaroid is actually only 20 miles north of Belize.. But you are right, the beaches there didn't blow us away - however, the snorkeling was the best of our life - make sure to take a snorkeling trip from Caye Caulker, it's worth it! Manatees, turtles, sharks, sting rays... loved it!

You think, Laura? :) It is actually a really gorgeous beach but I might even like Akumal, a bit north of here, better. I am still surprised how much we liked the beaches in Cambodia - I think I would even rather go back to Cambodia for some beach time than to Thailand!
