Thanks to all who helped me to plan this trip - it went swimmingly! :)

I am going to keep this short, but would like to return the favor of answering questions for those in the planning stage.

Stop 1: D'Nest, Belize City: This small, family-run b&b was a perfect introduction to the country. the hosts make you feel like part of the family, the rooms are comfortable, and the breakfast yummy. There are balconies that look over a garden and canal, great for observing bird-life and pesty iguanas that insist on munching on the host's well-tended plants! Manatees, we were told, can sometimes be spotted.

Gabby and Otie, our extremely genial hosts, even invited us to attend a nationally-televised karoke contest one night, run much like our American Idol - what fun! Their three young grandchildren came with us, entertaining us with their own version of a popular song. These kids, bright and engaging, could even speak some Chinese! We laughed the entire night, when we could hear over the Latino music blasted into the theater, that is!

Our next stop was Macal Camp at Chaa Creek. We had previously arranged transfer with William, who comes highly recommended on these boards. We elected to share a ride with another couple to bring down the cost, as transportation is very high in Belize. William picked us up right on time, and was a most engaging driver! We all got along great, and the time flew by. I was glad that we had arranged for a driver, though next trip we might use a bus, both for the experience and to bring down costs.
