Hi All!!! My wife and I will be going to AC July 14th for 8 days. I have read soooo much here and found it very helpful, yet I am still very confused on what we should do/see. I plan on at lease 2 snorkle trips! What 2 would be the best? I also want to do a trip to the mainland to see some ruins! What would you suggest? Also, would Caye Caulker be worth a visit? We would love to meet up with someone who has been to the island before who will be there when we will! Please let me know!!! You provide the advice, we will provide the drinks!!!

newyorkers, all the information you could possibly want/need is available in Lan Sluder's book, "San Pedro Cool". Don't leave home without it. It's the best $14.95 investment you can make.
Tons of info covering every subject relative to your trip. (I'm not suggesting you won't get good advice here on this message board, but the book covers things you won't think of asking.) Have a great trip.
PS: for the mainland, Guide to Mainland Belize by Lan Sluder, Belize Giide by Paul Glassman and many other good ones available.

Where are you staying? Caye Caulker is good for a day or part of a day. I don't know what might be going on over there at that time. We will be at Caribe Island July 9-16 so if we run into you maybe we can tell you what is happening at the time.

Also be VERY careful offering free drinks around here. You haven't seen most of us drink. Just kidding you will have a great time. Just hang out and play it by ear.

Well I used the general term "drinks"! My idea of a good drink is ice water with a twist of lemon!!! LOL Thank for the advice! We will be staying at Ramons!

Hol Chan and Shark Ray was a great experience. Mexico Rocks is beautiful. Tres Coco was a bit harder because the formations are so close to the surface but it is a nice stop, too. Tulu is a wonderful tour guide and takes out small groups if you don't prefer the larger type tours. A search of previous posts will get you his phone numbers or ask around...everyone know him.

Definatley eat at Elvi's and Ramon's has a killer rum punch.

Best suggestion: get rid of the watch, kick off the shoes and prepare for a great time!

Free Drinks? Uhhhh you need to move your trip up a few days.

If you go to the ruins on the main land, DON'T believe you will be looking at an actual jade head. The guide almost got whacked when he showed me that post card with a jade head on it. Has this happened to anyone else? (This was 10 yrs ago, July, 1994)
