Chan Chich and Lamanai, or just one?

Jump to last reply

So after I had everything (itinerary and days) pretty much decided, I started having second thoughts…the way I feel now, going to Tikal for one day is too much of a hassle, with too long transfers. We’ll save that for a Guatemala trip. I am thinking of adding a 2nd jungle lodge in Belize, and that would probably be Chan Chich. The other part of our trip, South Water Caye and Ambergris Caye (see full original itinerary here http://www.fodors.com/community/mexico-central-america/planning-belize-trip.cfm) will stay the same.

I have a new set of questions:
1) How does wildlife at Chan Chich compare to wildlife at Lamanai? This will mostly drive the decision to go to both or just one.
2) Assuming we go to both jungle lodges and considering that place #3 of the itinerary is South Water Caye, logistically, does it make more sense to do Lamanai or CC first?
3) Any idea of how much would it cost to charter a small plane for the CC – Belize City trip? On CC’s site the ground transfer is listed at $329/person. I assume that is one way…ouch.
4) Do you recommend the CC-Victoria House (hideaways of Belize) package, or should we book everything separately? Financially, which option makes more sense?
5) The package with Victoria House includes breakfast, lunch and dinner in both places. Would we miss trying out different restaurants in the area? I am not sure what’s available close to CC (we will not have a car), but I know San Pedro offers numerous various other options.
6) Some activities at CC don’t have a price listed, are they included in the regular pricing option?

Let me hear some of your thoughts on above and I will have more questions, for sure. Thanks a lot.
