I have always wanted to come to Belize and this is my chance. It is my turn to plan the family Christmas ('08) get-together. There are 17 of us if everyone comes. Usually it ends up being just 15 of us, but I can't count on that. We like to rent a house (or 2 houses that are next to each other)so that we can spend time together more easily, but I guess if it has a good place for everyone to congregate a condo complex would be fine. (Maybe then I wouldn't hear my brother-in-law snoring in the next room! Ooh hope he doesn't read this!) Anyway, anywhere on AC would be best, but if you know of a great place somewhere else in Belize or even Honduras, I would consider it. We do love Mexico, but "been there done that" and Belize just seems so magical. My in-laws are a spry 75 and the youngest grandchild is 15, so we have quite an age difference. But everyone is pretty active. Half of us have our dive certificates (see Belize is perfect for us) and I think the zip line and cave tubing sound like a blast! We want something with a good beach and good snorkeling if possible. Our budget is about 12,000 (American)for the week. Anybody have any suggestions? Thanks!
