First trip to Belize, need advice

Jump to last reply

Planning our first trip to Belize and would like advice! We want to get acquainted with the land and the culture. From my reading I can see coming back many times for more in depth adventures.

We arrive at BZE on Friday afternoon. Plan to stay near Belize city and go to San Ignacio Saturday morning for one night. Would like to rent a car and do easy tourist things: Belize Zoo, DuPlooy's Botonic gardens, Rainforest medicine trail and Morpho Breeding Center. (Have to come back next year for hikes, water falls, Mountain Pine Ridge, Mayan ruins, and Caracol etc.) So I see people discussing hiring a driver to San Ignacio, or catching a bus. What are the pros and cons of these three travels modes and relative costs?

Drive back Sunday to Belize city and taxi over to Ambergris Caye. We plan Monday and Tuesday to bike the Island, discover San Pedro, beach time, and plan excursions for Wed and Thursday. A snorkel day and maybe a fishing day. Friday we come back for one night in Belize city leaving Saturday noon.

Any comments?

Thanks in advance!
