This will be our first time to AC, second to Belize. We did a beach/jungle trip 2 years ago with ruins, ATM cave. We want to stay on the Caye the whole trip. My husband is an avid fisherman. He dives and snorkels, I only snorkel. We both love to eat local food when we travel, from street food to fine dining. I do not really want to cook, but a kitchenette would be handy for coffee, beer and toast. This is our first no kid trip in a while and good drinks are a must! We tend to like small boutique hotels that look appropriate for the region...I don't want to feel like I am in any big city.
I am thinking of splitting the trip on AC to half the week near the town, perhaps at Caye Casa, so we can easily enjoy all the benefits/restaurants/ bars of town. Then maybe spend the other half the week someplace more isolated, like Tranquility, for the great R&R and off the beach snorkeling. Does this make any sense at all, or should I just try to make up my mind and stay at one place or the other? Are these places as good as the reviews? Any other suggestions?
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
