I was in AC three weeks ago and the cruise ship brought many boats over from Belize City for passengers to enjoy AC and San Pedro. Which I belive they had been to Hol Chan/Shark Ray Alley. I would suggest that your cousin check with his/her cruise line and see what excursions are offered when they dock in Belize. I belive one of the excursions offered is cave tubing. Hope this helps answer your question some.

a family who will be on a cruise to Belize in Oct. e-mailed to ask the possibilities of getting to San Pedro to spend the day there.

This can also be suggested for your folks, they can go on the plane for the day and return back to the ship in the evening.

There are tours that go from the ship to various sites such as the Maya temples, the Zoo etc.

Hi, trina I would suggest the Orange Walk area. There is a lot to offer there. In particular there is the Lamanai Outpost lodge that offers exactly what you're looking for. You can contact me if you need more info at djones@btl.net

According to the cruise ship tour directors I've interviewed, the most popular tours for passengers are cave tubing (typically at Jaguar Paw), snorkeling at Shark/Ray Alley and the trip to Altun Ha, which on some cruises may be coupled with something else such as a Belize City tour, lunch at Maruba Spa or something else.

You can do these or other tours on your own, but for many people it's best to go with the ship's offerings, for two reasons: First, since the Belize City harbor is too shallow to dock at shore, passengers are tendered in on small boats. With 2000 passengers, this takes a good bit of time and organization, and if you have a tour with the ship you may get priority on tendering. Second, due to the limited number of tour operators in Belize City, and the crush of passengers from the ship, you may not find the tour you want offered independently at a time that will get you back to the ship on schedule. However, if you like to do things on your own you can rent a car (Crystal is at the Tourist Village docks) or take a water taxi to San Pedro or even fly to San Pedro (take a taxi to Municipal airstrip).

For those who don't want to do a tour, the Tourist Village shops are clean and safe and are perhaps worth an hour or so. The new Belize Museum, in the Central Bank Building, is within walking distance and is well worth the US$5 admission. Also, there are some interesting old colonial homes and other things to see on a walking tour of the Fort George area, which is safe as it is patrolled by tourist police.

since they are cousins and if they are from arkansas, you could take 'em to one of the local carvers and pick out some new teeth

I know people who have pre-booked their cave tubing directly to the tourism village. This is the email they sent their request to. belizetourismvillage.com
