Beach Vacation April

Hi We are looking for recommended beach vacation spots for my husband & I and 23 year old daughter flying out of Vancouver Canada at the end of April for 10 days. Prefer Spanish speaking location with hotter weather - nice beach and weather. No need for high end tourist resort ..Thank you

First, you don't mention your budget. This might be important based on airlines that might fly to certain places and where you might get a better fare. If you're looking for some adventure and more active things to do, check out Costa Rica. I wouldn't put it as a beach first destination, but there is a lot to do there and many options for staying away from high end tourist resorts.

I would also think Mexico - of course, flying from the Pacific side, it would be cheaper/easier to get to the pacific side of Mexico as well. Puerto Vallarta was a bit too crowded for my tastes, but we did like the smaller community of Sayulita, about 40 minutes to the north of PV.

Our favorite Mexican destination is Isla Mujeres, just a ferry ride away from Cancun. But really, any where along the Mayan Riviera would offer you some amazing beaches.

You are a short trip from Hawaii as well . . .

Agree with coalminer, in the previous post.......when I saw your location and criteria, Mexico came to mind immediately............the Riviera Maya is a good choice, and the town of Playa Del Carmen and near by will offer lots of accommodation at varied price points....resorts or small hotels, your choice....the weather the end of April should be glorious.............click on the blue links contained within this post if those areas interest you to access the TA travel guides for the area...

The weather in Mexico in late April should be fantastically sunny and hot............not sure if this is the location you're asking about, though.....
