Belize on a Budget (Qs about ADO Bus, Caye Caulker, and More)

Jump to last reply

We have ten days to get to Belize, see the country, and get home. Here's the itinerary so far:

Day 1: Fly to Cancun. We'll arrive around 11:00, and our plan is to take the ADO night bus to Belize City that night. Any suggestions on what to do in the intervening hours are welcome. I'm thinking with we take the shuttle into downtown Cancun and have some lunch and see the couple of ruins near there OR more likely, we take the bus to Playa Del Carmen and spend the day there. I have not found any way to buy the tickets online. Is there a way to buy them by phone? I am hoping they won't be sold out when we arrive. Since the bus won't leave Playa until so late, is it safe for us to walk around after dark or should we go park ourselves at the bus station with a good book?

Day 2: Arrive in Belize City early and hop on a bus to San Ignacio. We'll be staying at Midas Resort. The plan for the day is drop our bags at the hotel & to pop on a bus over to Xunantunich. After that, we'll wander around San Ignacio and swim in the pool at Midas.

Day 3: ATM or Caracol (Tour company recommendations?)

Day 4: Relax and recoup from Day 3.

Day 5: Whichever we missed on Day 3. :-)

NOTES ON SAN IGNACIO: We're vegetarian, so I am very interested to hear any recommendations for restaurants. We're not picky otherwise. We're not looking for much in the way of nightlife, but an affordable bar recommendation would be great as well.

Day 6: Head back to Belize City and take the Water Taxi to Caye Caulker. NEED HOTEL IDEAS! Nowhere has stood out to me, yet. I like a good deal, hubby would like air conditioning.

Days 7-8: Swimming at the split, renting bikes to cruise the island, snorkeling at least one day (my husband has a stingray phobia, so I doubt he'll go out more than once). Again, looking for restaurant recommendations, and a recommendation for a snorkeling outfit.

Day 9: Water Taxi back to Belize City, and the night bus back to Cancun.

Day 10: Flight doesn't leave until 3:40 so possibly heading to the downtown ruins in Cancun before taking the bus to the airport?

Alright, Belize Experts, what say you? :-D
