First visit to Belize: your thoughts on preliminary 10d itinerary

Jump to last reply

My husband and I, along with our college-aged kids, are planning a 11-day visit to Belize over December (Dec 15 - 25).
One of my bucket list items for many years has been to see Mayan ruins. We all want an active vacation, including jungle + snorkeling. (No divers or fisherman among us.)

Below is our preliminary itinerary based on research on this site and others.
I would great appreciate your input, and especially on how we can economize. As I research the costs for transportation, and fees for sites I'm pretty surprised how expensive the "adventures" are.

Day 1: Arrive afternoon; travel by private shuttle/car or bus to San Ignacio
Day 2- 5: Stay in San Ignacio, explore mainland Mayan ruins, cave tour; hiking + zip-line; day trip to Tikal
Day 6: Fly from SI to San Pedro
Day 7 - 10: Stay somewhere on Ambergris Caye, possibly a condo if that is more economical.
Snorkeling tours and relaxation.
Day 11 - fly in AM to Belize City Airport to catch flight home.

For a first time visit to Belize, how does this look?
Anything we should add as a "for sure" ---
Ideas for economizing without roughing it too much?

Thanks in advance for your input!
