Saludos de New York City.

We are so lucky to be coming to Belize with our familes-eight of us in total. I was here twenty years ago for work and now it is vacation time. We will be staying in Ambergris Caye for ten days. Want to show our kids rainforest, las ruinas, and anything else that will make them fall in love with this beautiful country.
Thanks for any ideas.

Ambergris Caye - Under the water:
Hol Chan
Shark Ray Alley
Mexico Rocks

Ambergris Caye /On the island:
Marco Gonzalez ruins


On the mainland
Lamanai - a day tour that leaves SP by boat and takes you to the ruins via a jungle river that is alive with amazing plants and animals - you will see rainforest, monkeys, tropical birds, orchids and one of the most naturally spectacular ruins in the area.

Easy day-trip - take the water taxi over to Caye Caulker, wander around, have lunch and come back mid-afternoon.

For the kids - if you need more to do - cave-tubing/zoo

Rent bicycles and spend a day riding north of the bridge. Stop at various resorts - enjoy water melon juice, lime ade, fresh coconut water and fresh squeezed orange juice. In addition to the many restaurants savor some foods from the street vendors.
Talk to as many locals (of all colors) as you can.

Agree with Harriette on the bike-ride north. There is some excellent snorkeling to be done under the pier at Rojo Lounge if you get that far up the beach - it's definitely worth it.
Lots of nice places to stop for a drink or lunch.

Lazy Croc BBQ is a must and the Palapa Bar for a refreshing drink is great on the trip across the bridge.

The kids will like the "chicken drop" in front of Wahoo's.

Go to Lamanai with Tanisha Tours.

Ditto Reaper's comments - but please note that Lazy Croc is only open Friday-Saturday-Sunday from 11-5. I get the idea that if you go on Fridays there are more desserts to choose from than by Sunday ......

Oh yes ..... you might want to try Aji too. Right by Lazy Croc, but on the seaside. Charming - a romantic dinner spot, or an excellent stop for a beverage on a hot day.

I would agree with the chicken drop,... excuse me 'The World Famous Chicken Drop' definitely the cultural highlight of a visit to San Pedro.

If you are diver's I would say diving is a must do! If you are not divers I would still say diving is a must do. Take a Discover Scuba Diving course.

Cheers,
Carlos
