How can I contact Eva's restaurant or David's Adventure tours to see a list of tours they offer? Do their tours usually pick you up from your hotel or does everyone meet up in town. If we're supposed to meet in town, which are the following hotels are closest? These are also the ones I'm considering.... Windy Hill, JaguarPaw, Duplooy's, Black Rock, Hidden Valley, Banana Bank, Five Sisters and Maya Mountain.

Thanks in advance!

It's probably best just to wait until you get there and make plans for your tours then. You don't know what the weather will be like on a certain day, and that will affect what tours will go out that day. www.belizex.com has some info on David's Tours and on Eva's (which is a restaurant and a gathering place for tourists and tour operators, not itself a tour operator).

Of the hotels you are considering, only Windy Hill and Maya Mountain are close to San Ignacio. Maya Mountain is about a mile or a little less from town. Windy Hill is just on the west side of San Ignacio.

Yes, I will probably wait till I get down there before i make any definite plans. Would you be able to give me a little estimate of how much the following tours will be. And whether or not they do pickups from hotel or only from town? I want to be able to do some comparing before I sign up for certain packages or book certain hotels.

Sorry, there's a wide range of costs depending on which tour you go with and when you go and exactly where you go and how many people go ... You might want to visit www.belizex.com and if it's important to you then invest a few dollars in telephone calls to Belize. Or buy a good guidebook to Belize, though not all tour costs will be any one guide.

Frankly, if costs are a main consideration, I'd just stay at Martha's in San Ignacio or Aguada nearby in Santa Elena and take tours offered by folks in town. You'll find plenty of options.

Thanks! Would you happen to have a URL or e-mail address for David's Adventure Tours? The http://www.belizex.com didn't really have anything specific to david's tours.

THanks.

David is quite a character who definitely runs on Belizean Time! His tours are fun and informative.

I'll echo Cinca's comments about David being a unique character. The best part of the 11 (or 14 mi, whatever!) canoe trip down the river is starting out a David's place, 150 ac his grandfather left to him. It is built on an unexcavated Mayan site, and he has built quite the compound. It is possible to stay there and/or camp there. I highly recommend David's tours.

We went to Caracol with Everald, who works out of Eva's. We liked his low-key style, and even got him to take us to the airport later from San Ignacio. The price seemed reasonable compared to others we heard quoted. I think just talking to a cab driver to go to Xunantunich and/or the Guatemalan border is the best and most economical way to see those sites. We found a guy named Keith that was VERY reasonable, and you don't really need a tour for that. Keith did make sure we got across the border ok, and even pointed out the best places to shop.
