Ambergris Cay to Tikal - One week trip recomendations

Jump to last reply

We booked a 7 day flight to Belize. We plan to do 4-5 nights in Ambergris Cay and 2-3 nights in Tikal. I plan to dive while in Ambergirs Cay. We arrive at noon in Belize City from Atlanta. We are on the 1 p.m. flight to ATL out of Belize City. We are looking to stay at a nicer hotel in Ambergris and we are open to suggestions in Tikal.


We are looking for recommendations:

1. Should we do Tikal first then Ambergris? Would it matter that I plan to dive at least 2-3 days.

2. What is the most efficient way to get from Ambergris to Tikal, Tikal to Ambergris? Tropic Air flight to Flores and private car or San Ignacio and arrange for transportation. We are not against spendiing 1 night in Kaa'na resort in San Ignacio if necessary.

3. Since we have a 1 p.m. flight out is it necessary to stay the night in Belize City? I would prefer not to.

4. Best sunrise/sunset tours in Tikal.

5. If we go the nice resort, Matachica or Victoria House? Any better places that may do a dive package? Also, any places great reef snorkeling right off the shore? I usually go for cheap hotels my wife likes nicer places. I would like to avoid more than $350/night max. I would prefer something not in the city, something more private.

Thanks,

Ben
