Jackieo, no problem, you aren't nosy- just curious. I had no idea how much to bring with me last time. We split the hotel 3 ways for the week and it ended up being $260 each, which we charged. I ended up spending about $700 cash over the week. The only other thing I charged was my Tropic air flight (about $85), I paid cash for everything else. Considering how much we did, I was surprised we didn't spend more. Lamanai was $125 each, which I think was worth it when you consider that it is an entire day trip, and they have breakfast and lunch for you and all the belikins and rum punch you can drink, all day. By the way, because there are limited opportunities to use the restroom, my advice is to pace yourself accordingly if you plan on drinking a lot
The resort course for scuba diving was $125, snorkeling trips are from $25 and up depending on if you take a half day, full day, etc. We took half day trips for $25. Next time I think I might also try a day trip out to Caye Caulker to snorkel which I think is around $50? not sure about price for that one.
If you want to parasail (I didn't but my friend did) it's about $50. Renting Jetboats (seats 4) is about $175 for an hour and Renting sea mice (seats 2 but more fun if you each get your own) was around $60 per hour.
Food was very reasonable, the most we spent on a meal was $80 US each and that was for our last dinner at Capricorn, and we had a full dinner, w/ appetizers, entrees, dessert and wine and it was less $$ than we expected and a definite highlight of the trip. Most places were about $10-20 US for dinner with beers and drinks. Ramons has a BBQ on Tuesday nights that is like $25 US each which was way overpriced but Barefoot Skinny was playing that night so all was not lost. Most BBq's are cheaper than that. We were surprised at how reasonable the food was and when you throw in all the alcohol, we spent a lot less than we thought we would.
Definitely rent a golf cart and explore the island (US$60 for 24hrs)or you could get some exercise and rent a bike (we chose the cart).
