Our four children (ranging in age through the years from 5 to 19) have been fortunate enough to have been to Belize several times. It is true that there are not the same activities available to them that they are used to at home, but they love Belize, ESPECIALLY Caye Caulker, as much as we do. Maybe the first day takes a little getting used to, but after that, they never want to leave. They love walking up and down the island, meeting people (local and fellow travelers), playing with the other little kids at the park, joining in a basketball game, practicing snorkeling in the shallow water down by the split, fishing with their dad, not wearing shoes, drinking fresh orange juice from a recycled rum bottle, smelling that irreproducable smell of fresh laundry hanging out to dry in the wind, learning to live life at a slow pace, not watching TV or reading the headlines, learning to live without A/C (being hot does not kill you), going to bed when the sun goes down and getting up when the sun rises (to the sound of those amazing tropical birds), making friends, making sure we get to the split in time to see the sunset, being outside ALL DAY LONG... I could go on and on. Bring your kids. It will change their lives.
