Hi everyone. This is a fantastic site. I was hoping to pick your heads in choosing a nice spot to vacation this winter. I have done lots of traveling and Belize looks like exactly what I want. I am thinking of flying to Belize City and then looking for a nice getaway near Ambergris Caye or Cocker Caye. Is there any problem going to Belize and finding accomodation on arrival?

You shouldn't have any difficulty finding accommodation in Caye Caulker or Ambergris, except possibly during the Christmas / New Years period.

Other busy periods are the US Thanksgiving period and Easter, though finding accommodation on arrival shouldn't be a problem.

I would highly recommend you do research on hotels and condos before coming particularly with a family. If it was just you and a SO, then far less of a problem. Lots of nice places and prices varying quite a bit based on your budget. Great island and people. You go, you will go back!!!

Banana Beach is a good family spot - has a nice pool and restaurant on site.

They are a bit south of town so you would probably want to consider a cart or bikes.
