I am celebrating my birthday at the end of the month and beginning of April in Ambergris Caye with a very close "friend" of mine this year. I have never been to the country or island, and I am trying to find out where would be a great place for a birthday dinner celebration. Also, what activities to do with someone who doesn't know how to swim?
the Sunset looks nice. The Blue Water Grill is great. I like the Rainbow on Caye Caulker, too. Any of these are great, but Caye Caulker is a little more funky and laid back. If you go out on the pier to see the stars at night, that's worth the airfare in and of itself.
Do the Lananai river trip. It's like the Jungle Cruise at Disneyland, only it's real. Swimming is not required. The snorkling with a life jacket should be okay, unless your "friend" is really afraid of the water. Kick back on the beach and watch the day turn to dusk, then to night. That's
a little bit of heaven on earth.
