It’s been over a year since anyone has posted in the forum! I’m planning a trip to Belize March 9-18 (9 days total) - travelling with a friend.
Here’s the plan for our itinerary (just a guideline - will change as we go i’m sure).
We arrive in Belize City March 9 at 4:30 and will try to make a rapid exit from the airport and head straight to the watertaxi terminal (http://www.cayecaulkerwatertaxi.com) where we hope to catch the last taxi of the night to Caye Caulker (leaving at 5:30). www.gocayecaulker.com
In Caye Caulker we have made reservations at “De Real Macaw” for 4 nights. http://www.derealmacaw.biz/main/info.htm From Caye Caulker we are hoping to arrange tours locally.
We then have a reservation for a 3 day/2 night sailing tour that takes us from Caye Caulker to the town of Placencia with a company called Raggamuffin tours. The tour will be “roughing it” a bit where we sleep on tents on the beach etc. Hopefully there will be no creepy crawlers to ruin the fun. http://www.sailingadventuresbelize.com/product.htm
The last 3 days will be spent in the town of Placencia (www.placencia.com). We haven’t been able to book any accomodations here but there seem to be lots of hotels so hopefully we’ll find something decent when we get there. On our last day we’ll talk a little local plane back to Belize City just in time to catch our flight home. http://www.tropicair.com/
I’d love to hear any comments/advice on the above itinerary. We’ve done most of the planning with the help of the internet and guidebooks (lonely planet and moon guides). Would love to get some advice from someone who’s been there.
