Looking for the perfect Belize vacation…

We’re a retired but still fairly active senior couple, and we wanted to see as much as we could of Belize on this 8-day vacation. Claudia helped us put together a great itinerary that allowed us to visit San Ignacio, Ambergris Caye, and Placencia Village.

Activities we love during this trip…

Snorkeling at Mexico Rocks was really fun. Our Guides, Elias and Nick, were absolutely wonderful. We are beginners at snorkeling, and Elias was so helpful to make us feel safe and stay within a few feet of us at all times. They showed us many underwater fish and creatures, as well as the coral reefs there. I'm glad we went there, as Mexico Rocks are only 12 feet deep at the most, so we could see everything clearly. The Xunantunich ruins tour was also very informational. I recommend visiting this with a guide, as they are trained to explain everything. It’s not so hot if you visit early in the day.

For people traveling to Belize, I’d definitely recommend...

Our favorite accommodation from the trip was Pooks Hill Lodge at San Ignacio. I cannot praise this highly enough. Everyone there was friendly, helpful, and many of the activities there are included, free. They have their own guides and can arrange any of the trips you want to take as well. We had a wonderful time and met several interesting guests. You pay for your meals and bar tab when you are ready to leave. There are two trails through the jungle, and one of the guides will be happy to take you, or you can go on your own. It is remote and very ecologically conscious. We loved it. We saw many animals there, especially howler monkeys and birds.
