Defining my Belize/Guatemala itinerary - input appreciated!

Jump to last reply

Ok all you experts - I need advice! I've been getting excellent suggestions over on the TA forum and figured it's time to move it over here and get Fodorites input as well.

Any thoughts for what to flip around, what to add, what to remove, where to save $$$, is very much appreciated!

Day 1 - TEC (Belize Zoo Jungle Lodge) - zoo night tour
Day 2 - *Lamanai Outpost Lodge - Cave's branch tubing/x-fer to Lamanai w/PACZ (may
have to move this to another day depending on logistics)
Day 3 - Lamanai - Native fishing/sunset cocktail cruise
Day 4 - Lamanai - Sunrise canoe/Lamanai ruins (possible croc encounter but 4pp min)
Day 5 - Tikal Inn - Tikal overnight (buy pass at 3pm so good for next day)
Day 6 - Chaa Creek-Macal River Camp - Medicinal trail/Creatures of the night walk
Day 7 - Macal River Camp - Mountain Pine Ridge (includes Rio Frio Cave/pools)-PACZ
Day 8 - *Chaa Creek cabina - Morning birding/horseback riding
Day 9 - Chaa Creek cabina - Natural History center/butterfly farm/canoe or biking
Day 10 -13 - Glover's Atoll Resort (over water cabina) 4/n & 3 full days of world class
snorkeling from the beach plus swim, kayak and snorkel throughout small
nearby cayes and chillin. No tours.
Day 14 - Ruby's - Hangin' at Ramon's dock and checkin out San Pedro town
Day 15 - Ruby's - Hol Chan/Shark Ray Alley
Day 16 - Ruby's - Manatee viewing with Turtleman (or other)
Day 17 - Depart for home

*Still a splurge, but taking advantage of the kids discounts/free options at Lamanai and Chaa Creek. Using PACZ for the tours that cost $ - much cheaper than through Chaa Creek.

There is a small part of me that is debating Flores in exchange for Lamanai. For anyone who had visited both I would love your thoughts on this.

Thanks all!
