We just got back on Tuesday night, and we had a great time - best trip to Belize yet! We spent about 5 days in Caye Caulker at the Seaview (nice spot,but a little noisy from the construction going on nearby).Fred is a great innkeeper.
We did a day's diving with Frenchies and really enjoyed it. Our divemaster was Alex, who made our group of novices feel very comfortable in the water. We saw all kinds of great stuff out at Hol Chan - BIG green moray, eagle rays, stingrays groupers, etc. The second dive was at Amigos' Wreck, and we saw a good sized nurse shark and our first wreck.
Then we popped over to Ambergris, and stayed at the Blue Tang Inn - very nice staff and accomodations, we'd recommend it to anyone. We had a day's dive with Amigos del Mar, who were extemely helpful, since I was having a mild freakout about the waves being a bit choppier than the last dive. Thanks Mike - you really made me feel much safer in the water! We dove San Pedro Cut and Cypress Gardens. There were tons of little fish we'd never seen before (even a small cleaning station), a turtle (Hawksbill I think) munching away on the coral, completely unbothered by our presence.
The food was great everywhere, of course. Burritos and BBQ at BC's, stone crab at Jerry's Crab Shack. There was the Miss Garifuna Pageant one night , and a fun Punta band at Crazy Canuck's.
We also went fishing for bonefish and caught two with our guide Hermando.
What more can you ask from a vacation!
