My girlfriend and I have decided to some something really spur of the moment and book a flight to Belize. Neither of us have been, although I have really really good things about it. We want to relax, do some snorkling, some sightseeing, maybe go fishing 1 day. Who knows. We are totally playing this by ear. The main goal is go get away from Dallas for a while, do something new and I think this might be the place to do it.
Here's what I need some help with.
We will arrive on Thurs Dec. 7th and depart Mon Dec. 11th.
Accomodations: We'd like to stay pretty cheap (< $100 per night.) We don't need anything fancy. Should I make reservations somewhere now or just wing it once we get there? Which places are reccommended?
How popular is it this this of the year? Should I be worried about it being crowded?
How easy it is to book a fishing trip, or go snorkling? Again, is this something I should take care of in advance?
If you were to get advice to a Belize newcomer, what would it be?
Thanks for any help you can give. I am really looking forward to the trip.
