I'm a 27 year old male who will be travelling to Belize and AC during the second week in March. Due to plane ticket fares (I booked later than my friends), I'll be arriving in Belize 2 days before the rest of my group (3/8, rather than 3/10).
I was wondering if anyone had suggestions as to whether I should stay in the Belize City area and do some of the non-AC stuff for those first two days, since we'll all be spending 7 days on AC starting 3/10. Is there enough in the Belize City area (e.g., ruins, rainforests, etc.) to warrant me staying there for 48 hours, or should I head directly to AC and the beaches and diving?
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
Also - I'm debating between lodging on AC - Tradewind Villas, Sunbreeze, and Coconuts (all have limited availability, but I should be able to get a room in at least one of them). My friends are staying at Ramons and Capt. Morgans (will be diving with those staying at Ramons). Any suggestions for a single traveller who doesn't want to let his budget get *too* out of hand?
Again, thanks in advance for any responses on either or both questions!
