OK - we're the auntie and uncle who have no kids and want to show our 13 year old neice around a bit. Her parents (my brother and sister in law) have already had a daughter who's done 3 months in Spain on a school exchange program. Younger daughter hasn't been anywhere out of the country yet.

Any stories from people who've been through something similar? Just to show them it's been done safely by others?

5 years ago, my sons were 13 and 16 and we took them to Belize that year. They still talk about it. They had the time of their lives. We stayed at DuPlooy's on the mainland in the rain forest. They swam in the river, canoed, hiked, explored Mayan ruins. We took a day trip to Tikal in Guatamala. The young college aged guide was FABULOUS. He took them on an "off the beaten path adventure" through the park. We then went to San Padro. They played soccer with the local boys, snorkeled, danced, fished, swam with the rays and sharks at Shark Ray alley. She will have the time of her life. You'll be exhausted, but it will be an experience you'll never forget.

Make sure she knows how much booze she can handle before you get there. You don't want to have to be holding her head over the toilet every night (I remember when I was 13! Teenagers can be so impulsive!)

At 13? Please tell me I'm just dense and you're joking.


I will have a Belikin -- put it on klcman's tab.

Otter, while I am sure SeaDreams is planning on much more supervision than KVarner's rather presumptuous post implies, 13 year olds with serious drinking problems are part of my life almost every day.

Thanks law. Not saying it isn't a problem, just that a session on how to hold your liquor is not on my agenda when preparing my 13-year-old for a family trip.

Of course not. My guess is not on Seadreams' either. Haven't quite determined whether KVarner is rude or just something else..... wink
