Planning a trip with two friends for Dec 10-18 and
Would love to have advice on where to stay on AC.

We are looking for a place that is close to nightlife but gives us access to kayaking, snorkelling, fly fishing, beach lounging.

Any hotels with 3bed rooms, on the beach and clean/updated?

Is it better to be North of the river or south?

Water taxi or puddle jumper?

well just answering a couple of your questions:

If you want to be close to the nightlife then you want to be south of the cut, closer to town...

definitely the air transfer: 14 minutes versus forever on boat. eek

Check out The Palms (next to Ramon's). These are condos you can rent. I stayed in a 1 BR with a sleeper sofa but I'll bet they have some that would sleep 3. Or hang up the hammock on the porch and drift away.....

Water Taxis and puddle jumpers are ALL part of the adventure. Fly one way and take the taxi the other.
It is interesting to fly into some place and then boat in, you will usually experience some interesting differences. Do it all! wink

3BR ? Chk out Banana Beach (for sure) & Banyan Bay (2 BR) - both meet your criteria for clean & on da beach

It depends on what price range you're looking for as to where to stay. Here's a web site for ideas. We stayed at Holiday Hotel in 1998, our first time to Belize (Ambergris Caye). It was in town, close to everything, one room, no TV or pool, but clean. The second time we stayed at Playador now known as Exotic Caye's Hotel. They have nice cabanas, pool and nice beach. It's about 1/4 mile from town (within walking distance). We've made eight trips in all. Since then we bought a condo at Belize Yacht Club, but rent it out year round to a nice couple who live there, so we stay at another unit. It's quite there, a small pool but no real beach. Ramon's is nice with a good size beach. Banana Beach or Sunbreeze Hotel are also good choices.

Then there is Caye Caulker, which is years behind Ambergris Caye. Very laid back small island village. Caye Caulker, Belize - Vacation Travel Information <>

If you prefer the mainland Placenia has nice beaches. We only stayed there once at Kitty's. The movie director Francis Cappola has a resort there Turtle Inn.

If you choose Ambergris Caye, there's probably more to do. Most all resorts have BBQ nite with entertainment. There is a small casino & at least two night clubs. Wednesday night is the "World Famous Chicken Drop" at the Pier Lounge. They put a large Bingo card in the sand, force feed a chicken, and people bet on the number where they think it will do it's business.

There's a lot of great restaurants. Middle Street has a lot of good ones. Corina Caramba, Reef Restaurant, & Micky's are favorites of the locals. We find that if you dine where the locals dine, you get the best food for the best price. Elvi's is nice, also on Middle St. Celi's & Fido's are good choices. George's Kitchen across from the Woody's has great breakfast.

The money is easy to figure out, $10 BZ is $5 US. I hope you find this info informative. I know you will enjoy Belize as I do. The people are so friendly. I can't wait until I can spend months at a time there.

Exotic Caye has 2 bedroom delux rooms that are really nice - 4 of us went and we each had our own bed - 2 bedrooms (each with a full) and a loft (with a full) with a separate room (with a full).

You could visit and take advantage of the festival to get you a nice bit off your room rate, granted its not for any down south but the North wins hands down anyway!!! I know this is a blatant plug but it's worth it dont ya think.
