review 26 Nov 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Visiting Tikal and snorkelling at Caye Caulker. Tikal surpassed all expectations and I enjoyed the Belizean barrier reef much more than the Australian.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Beware of sand flies at Dangriga. They're tiny - like Scottish midges - and give horrible bites that mature into nasty painful blisters after a few days. Deet based mosquito repellent doesn't work, only oily products like Avon Skin So Soft.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

All tourism that involves air, road or speed boat transport impacts negatively on the environment so let's not kid ourselves. I hope our use of local guides and services did benefit local people and went some way to compensate.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Highly!

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The Mayan buildings and the ATM cave.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

On Caye Caulker there is a lot of snorkelling offered and not much else in the trip line. This is fine if snorkelling is your thing, but may be unwelcome if it is not.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, we used local transport, stayed in locally owned accommodation, ate in locally owned restaurants and provided funds for Belize Audubon Society. We felt all our spend stayed local.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Amazing. An insight into the nature and culture of these beautiful, if economically challenged, countries.

review 24 Nov 2015

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Camping between a village and Mayan ruins. Snorkelling with turtles, rays and sharks.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Pack wet weather gear. It can really rain in Belize.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes. We used local cafes and tourism businesses. Several of the activities involved paying park fees to support natural and historical sites. Unfortunately we had to use bottled water but care was taken with disposal.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Very good.
