We are thinking of bringing our 4 kids (8, 10, 12, & 14) to Belize this July. I would love some colorful, genuine, "in-the-know" advice from locals. I am looking for TROPICAL, BEAUTIFUL WATER and NICE BEACHES. I want to stay in a small cottage or hut right on the beach. We like to walk, explore, scuba dive, snorkel, eat where the locals eat, shop along the roadside, walk for miles and be charmed, learn about the local people and culture, make world-wide friends. We want to avoid big hotels, bus tours, time share propositions, and any kind of schedule.
I realize July is off-season. Does that mean 100 mph winds, guaranteed? 100 million mosquitos?
I'd love to hear from you locals! THANKS!
