Thank you very much!!!
My dos centavos worth --

V & V used to be the one I heard mentioned a lot. But the crime issues in that area require a bit of current sleuthing. About 600 murders in Cancun last year. Flying in according to the die hards is OK so long as you stay in the specific resort area. The marinas there may not offer that safety buffer. Suggest you check with the State Department regarding Cancun and Yucatan.

I really like the OF 62. It may be a real target once away from a security intense area. I've friends and relatives living in Costa Rica on the west coast. I believe there are some pretty decent marinas now appearing on it's east coast. But CR is a bit further.

How about St Thomas or St Lucia instead? No matter what, be safe.
