Hi! I will be coming to Belize this week and will be there for ~9 days. Can anyone recommend a route to cover the best of Belize, MUST see sites, etc? Recommendations on places to stay or eat would be great too! We are backpacking and don't mind roughing it a bit. Thanks much!

Hi, the more research I am doing I would like to spend more time on the islands but YES there will be some time on the mainland. We are open to anything.

Hi, thanks for the info. What would you say is the best place to stay in AC? We are now hoping to spend about 3 or 4 days there?

hey Andy:

You might want to try a few days in Cayo and a few days in Caye Caulker. Caye Caulker is a fairly budget island destination.

The Portofino is north of town, but it is a wonderful place! We just got back from there and I can't say enough about it.

My hubby and I stopped in Caye Caulker last year, and honestly, were a bit disappointed. The trees were down, from Hurrican Mitch, I believe, so it was VERY hot with not much shade. Also, it just seemed like more of a college kids, party town. We much preferred Ambergris Caye. It just depends on what you're looking for. I think Caye caulker is a bit cheaper, though.
