Belize -- several questions -- please help!

Jump to last reply

Is it better to go to Belize in December or March? Those are our only possibilities.

We will have 9 days that we want to split between snorkeling and jungle. We have two boys who will be 6 and 8.

The boys don't need any kid entertainment -- no pool, no kid activities are necessary. They will be happy with board games that we will bring plus with nature.

We are however picky about our rooms. We like larger rooms where everybody will sleep comfortably and also we like our A/C :) Although we could do without A/C if that will allow for a better snorkeling or jungle experience.

Also easy accessibility is a plus. We would not want to be in a car for 6 hours for example.

So my questions are the following:
1) Should we go to Ambergris Caye or to Turneffe Island? Which has better beach and snorkleing?
2) Which jungle lodge would you recommend? We are interested in animals, birds, hiking and possibly river tours or kayaking.

Thank you very much!!
