I really need some help. With so much information available on the web, I think I am getting information overload!

My girlfriend and I are athletic, adventurous people and are looking for a non-resort experience in Belize. We just learned scuba, and will be spending 10 days in Belize just after Thanksgiving.

I am looking for a local who can give us the inside scoop on the best things to do with our limited time. Can anyone help us?

We would like to split our time between a jungle experience with some archeological significance (one day with an archeologist would be cool) and an unhurried scuba experience. We are both very friendly and like the idea of staying at smaller, more rustic places (romance!) or at some local's spare room.

I have heard so much about Belize, and I am really excited by the thought that we will be able to visit. I have heard that Ian Anderson's Jungle Lodge has some good tours (anyone know anything about them?) and that there is some of the best scuba in the world in Belize.

We would like to find those places that tourists don't generally know about and avoid the noise of civilization.

I have been following the news of the Hurricane and my prayers go out to the families that have been effected. I know it will take some time to get things back to normal, but does anyone know anything about the damage and if there is anywhere that we should avoid?

Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated. Please respond to onerustyrazor@yahoo.com if you can help us.

Thanks so much!!!

Warmest regards,

Barry

Have been to Caye Caulker twice this year -- first time was in January and the last one was last two weeks of August 2000. My fiance and I did so much snorkeling in the barrier reefs - the best there is. I've been to Tahiti but found the reefs in the cayes more friendly and fun to explore. Of course, if you are into diving, there's the wonderful trip to the Hol Chan gardens and other offerings that some local guide could easily take you to. As for jungle trips, in August we went to Guatemala and visited the Tikal pyramids -- walked through lush jungles to get to the different sites. In January, we visited the Altun Ha pyramids and also did a bit of jungle tour. On the way over, you will be taking a boat ride partway of which is through jungle thickets.

Go for it -- Belize has it all -- it's a great place to have fun. Consider your trip a honeymoon because it could be the most awesome honeymoon you could ever have. It's worth the lifetime memories that you'll ever have. If you need more info, let me know!

Enjoy!

I myself have not been to Belize as of yet but planning our first visit for February. But there is an awesome website regarding Ian Anderson's Cave Branch. If you go to the forum "About Ambergris Caye" go back to 9/29 and the topic is Cook Caves Branch/AC Website. It will give you a little insight into a couple of the tours they have available. It really is a great website! Have fun!!
