I have been told enough times to know when I am wrong. So I will accept the suggestions and stay a couple months before I make a move to Belize. I was told that a central place to stay would be San Ignacio. I would like to have some information on the town IE: size, people, transportation, rent rates for a few months or longer. Heck I just might like it so much who wants to go home. :)
What is the tipping policy in Belize? Do you tip everyone who helps you? How much is customary to tip?
Can anyone recommend a good car rental agency at the main airport? I found AQ, Crystal, Jabiru, and then a few other mainstream like Budget and Hertz but they are way more expensive than local providers. Thoughts or comments from actual experience only, please. Thanks!
We are going to Belize in June. We want to go cave tubing/zip lining but we've heard that the crowds get bad with the cruise ship tours. Are there any days that the Cruise ships are not in port and crowds would be less?
My wife and I are retired and are proposing to visit Belize in January 2016 for about a month to determine if it is the place for us for future UK winter holiday escapes.
Firstly is January a good month to visit, should we stay a week in four different locations for instance or stay in one place and rent a car to visit other places and can anyone recommend accommodation.
What should we know about Belize. We are seasoned travelers, so enjoy visiting new countries.
Thanks in advance
My wife and I are 30 and 28 and have had our fair share of travels. We have explored Central America, Fiji, the Caribbean and Hawaii. We love to do anything outdoors and are divers. Our all time favorite trip was that of Belize, great culture, nice waters, amazing hikes, and great food. We tend to do Hawaii once or twice and year and love it there. In fact we love it so much that our son has a Hawaiian middle name and he has already been there at the age of 4 months. As much as we love Hawaii, I would like to experience another "outside the box" trip before we have our next one. We will most likely be traveling sometime between next May and next August. I just need help coming up with ideas. I'm looking for a place that will entertain my wife and I but is still easy to take my son there. Obviously someplace safe, as I've already had to experience hospitals in other countries and I'd prefer my son not but at least know if we had to then it would be ok! Any help would be awesome, and feel free to ask questions. Thanks!
Sailing for a few days out of Placencia with some friends - we were hoping to get our hands on some relaxing floaty toys to lounge around in during the trip. They're too big and heavy to fly with - anyone know of a place somewhere between Belize City and Placencia that we can buy these (sports store, ocean or boating supply, toy store, large supermarket, etc)? And maybe a decent hammock?
Is it easy enough to flag down a bus on the main highway outside the airport that will take me to Orange Walk Town?
I am planning a trip for a timeframe within March to May 2015. I'm thinking of two weeks, 1 week on land and 1 week to charter a catamaran and play on the water. I've not been to Belize or the area, so the first question would be, would you recommend water or land first? Second question is about if you had two weeks and middle of road budget, any recommendations on itinerary, places to stay on land and guides to see the various sights on land? Thank you! Randy
Are there water taxis from Corozal to San Pedro?
Can you tell me what Belizean 13 year olds are into? Music/Books/Activities/Fashion/Language/Idols/
What does a typical bedroom/house look like?
Are most poverty stricken or they middle class?
What do they do everyday? School then? or do they even go to school? Do they labor?
This information will be really helpful and the truth will win me over.
We are planning a kitesurfing holiday to San Pedro in a few weeks. I`ve just received information, that in San Pedro this yearoperates no kiteschool .
Does anybody knows, is it allowed to kitesurf in San Pedro coastals, is there any beach where we can launch? Whis would be the best part of San Pedro for such a sport like this? Thanks a lot,
I need some advice on getting me and my dogs to belize. Im too afraid of driving by myself through Mexico so ill be selling my car. And i need something affordable
My girlfriend and I are planning on a trip to Playa Del Carmen this summer. We are going to stay for one month, so we are probably going to make a trip to Belize. I've understood that the easiest way is to take the bus to Chetumal, and then a taxi over the border. What does this cost? And is it expensive to stay there? I think we want to stay for 2 or 3 nights
Wife and I will be in Belize 2nd week in August. Not really vacation, rather looking for potential sites to have a 2nd home. Interested in Caye Caulker, Palencia area, Stann Creek, possibly Ambergris Caye. Plan on ocean and reef access, view and will have a boat. What is the best way to travel (renting a car, plane/taxi) and in those areas what are good places to stay (comfortable, safe with A/C)? Not looking to rough it, but don't need San Francisco prices either.
Will I need to pay extra for insurance on top of what I carry on my car policy?
I don't want to stay in belize city. Where is a good hotel that will be easy to get into the jungle, mayan sites, cave tubing, ect?
We are going to Belize on a cruise, have set of twins age 3 and 16 year old, most of things to do, our twins can,t do, we opt for a beautiful beach in Placencia resort area, where it is safe, clean, has restaurants nearby /

I am a 29 year old female who has traveled quite a bit, but I am considering a solo trip to Belize in February 2014. Just looking for some opinions/ safety concerns I might have. I've heard not to spend much time in Belize City, which is fine. My plan would probably spend most of my time in Hopkins as I've heard this is one of the more laid back beaches (not crowded by cruise ship people). I'd also like to take the bus to Tikal Ruins in Guatemala for a day trip.
Any input would be much appreciated!
Looking for a local guide to help with monkey river trip, zoo, snorkel, fishing and general info Belize info. I don't want the group tours. Would love to hire a reasonably priced local person. We are staying in the Placencia area.
Can we get a boat from southern Belize to mainland Honduras or a Honduran bay island?
My husband and I will have about 4 days in Belize in February. We live in Costa Rica, so we are pretty much comfortable with america central style.
With only 4 days, we would like to know where is the most beautiful place to visit. We love beach and snorkeling. We like hiking and see animals.
We hope to find a nice hotel/villa/cabin for less than 60$. Is it realistic?
Thank you very much for all the tips you can give me.
My husband and I will be travelling to Belize overland from Guatemala around the 3rd week of Nov. At this time of year is it fairly easy to show up and find accommodation? The areas we were considering were San Pedro and Caye Calker. We are budget travellers, however having said that we realize Belize is not cheap, but any suggestions would be appreciated!
My wife and I are travelling Honduras and want to enter Belize. All of the information we heard and found is kinda of conflicting. Does anyone know if Koreans can enter Belize by paying for visa at border. We are thinking of taking the boat across from Puerto Barrios to Punta Gorda. We are easy with any boat transfer but curious about the visa situation. Thank you/
The shuttle will take you from airport to San Ignacio for $30? Leaving tonight so trying to get all info straight about getting from airport to SI.
Is the water safe to drink in hotel (staying in Tripicool in SI and Villa Almendra in CC), or should we stay with the bottled water option? I sincerely appreciate all the advice that I have received and look forward to finally being in Belize soon!
We have a great place to stay in San Pedro so we will be based from there but wouldn't mind if we needed to spend a few nights in other areas. We are wanting to have things planned for each day. Would really like to see the ATM cave, plus maybe do some cave floating, snorkling, zip lining, maya ruins. What other must do things should we fit in? This will be our first trip to Belize, thank you for your help!
We are coming to Belize in February but haven't decided on a location. We would like a place close to shore snorkeling and hiking. Preferably all inclusive but not a necessity. It doesn't sound like there are many all inclusives available. What do you recommend?
