    Good choice! El Pescador? There are other cool non-fishing activities such as touring Mayan ruins, world class diving/snorkeling, jungle tours etc.... Of course just sitting on the beach with a cold rum drink is hard to beat. The "Panty ripper" is a local favorite made with fresh pineapple juice. Yum.

    Oh, and BTW, one minor point but there's no Rooster fishing in Belize that I know of. Bonefish (bazillions of them), Permit, Tarpon, Barracuda, various reef fish, offshore species, and some Snook - yes. Hopefully your wife likes "boat rides" like mine does.

    Why has no one done a 'getting divorced!' thread that poses the same question?

    Marriage is a balance between reinforcing your wife's poor behavior and getting by.

    Best of luck. I just celebrated 13 years. Listen and empathize and you'll do well. Arguments are for learning, not winning.

    Go Sox,

    Duvall is great with abundant local fishing opportunities.

    Totally Belize. Been there done that. San Pedro on Ambergris Caye. Look up Mario Graniel, flyfishing for Tarpon and bonefish, snorkeling the reef, and diving for lobsters. I'm not kidding. This is the way to go...

    Ok, here's something to consider. Have you ASKED her if she really wants to go to a warm climate. If she chose AK, I'd GO to AK. Seriously. Any married guy on here will tell you "Daddy ain't happy if Momma ain't happy". Seriously ask her if she'd prefer to go to Alaska over somewhere like Costa Rica, Hawaii, etc. There's still tours you can do in Alaska that isn't just fishing related. But if she wants to go to Alaska to catch fish, cater to her damned it!!!!! Don't just go off your gut about your fiance (we're guys, are guts are usually wrong when it comes to women lol), give her what she wants and has asked for. Maybe she wants to hook a big king, or go after those monster lake bow's out Illiama. Who knows? Sit her down and ask. If she's set on AK, give it to her. :)

    I went to Belize on my divorce get away! The fishing was great!

    On a serious note, if you're thinking of late summer, the tropics will be hot and humid. The chance of rain generally pretty high. Hurricane season is July-November. Personally, I wouldn't hesitate to go to Alaska in August. Save your $ and go to the tropics during our winter/spring.

    I think you mean Christmas Island. Easter Island has a really rugged coastline and everything I've ever read about it indicates that the fishing basically sucks.
