Miami to Rio Dulce - Which route?

Departure will be next Nov or the following Jan. It looks like there are 2 routs 1. Bahamas-Windward Passage-Jamaica-Rio D. 2. Key West-Isla Muheres-Rio D. Route 1 is shorter but going against the current flow may be troublesome. Route 2 is longer and I've already gone down the "Thorny Path". Pegasus has a, relative to current fashion, weak engine. I probably will be single-handed. What's the best route??

We did the route from Key West to Isla and had no problems.
Click on the link on my signature line here and read all of the details. We left from Marathon but it will be the same trip.
