Going to Belize in November
Was thinking of diving with my daughter- we're both certified. The ship provides a dive excursion but it looks exspensive @ 145 pp. Is it worth it and are there other options?
Also what else is there to for wife and 2 kids there?
can you tell me what to do there with 3 young children (2, 5 and 8). Can we go swimming by ourselfs or do we need a tour. We are going to be 9 people. and the tours would be expensive. also if you have been to roatan can you tell me what to do there.
Linnie, we've been to both Belize and Roatan. We took ship tours in both countries and would highly recommend that. Both are very poor countries with a lot of crime. In Roatan you'll dock behind a machine gun guarded fenced in area. That is the poorest, saddest country I have ever seen. We talked to some couples who did a taxi tour on their own and enjoyed it but I would not do it with a family! Better to stay on board. We did the Tabianna beach snorkel in Roatan and cave tubing in Belize. I don't think the kids could do the tubing.
At Belize, it is recommended that you take an organized tour whether through a certified private tour or ship's tour. Wendy, Your daughter is too young/small to go on the Cave rafting tour with Reggie. Did you contact your cruise line for a copy of their tours? Although scuba may be expensive, the reef is supposed to be one of the countries best dive sites. If you only do one ship's tour, this may be for you.
