Hi i've been lurking around, reading the forum for a little while now. we are hoping to visit in July next year with 3 & 5yr old boys,

i am wondering what there is to do in the evenings with the kids?
anything there is around that is a must for them to do?
also is there any areas of water they must stay away from?
anything like that really

Thanks in advance

Depending on where you are staying, this might not be an optin, but my now 4 and 6 year old grandsons have to go to Rojo Lounge at Azul for the hermit crab migration. The food is excellent there as well, so it was no sacrifice. Their lobster pizza is excellent. Depending on when you come in July, you might be timing it right. There is also the zoo on the mainland. Mainly my grandsons just want to swim and explore. This summer will be their third trip and they keep telling their mom that they are moving to Belize. We stay north so I can't tell you what there is to do in town for the younger kids. At night you will find me with my head gear (flashlight) walking the beach and the docks looking for all the interesting "live" nightlife for hours.

if all goes to plan we should be there for the whole month. Oh my Zak would love that, he is fanatical about anything marine (sure he got it from me snorkling at 8 months pregnant) hes always going through my Jacques Cousteau books. Laszlo (the 3 yr old) is much more into reptiles and creepy crawlies, but he did enjoy rock pooling last summer. sounds like so much fun to do that in the dark.
Ive read about crocodiles on the island, are they a problem???

I don't go where the crocs are and knock on wood, have not seen any in our area. My guys will be down for the month of August. Finding playmates hasn't been too difficult in the past and then you have someone to tell you what is happening. Where are you staying?

Yes, they can go in the resturants in the evening. Be sure to make evening stops at Manelly's ice cream. This has been a ritual with our grandkids, and the oldest is 22yrs. and I am sure he will be in for his coconut ice cream fix again this visit.

If your angles are anything like my children (when they were little) or my grandchildren now. We have taken them on first class trips around the world to the most exotic and exciting places for all ages........And all they ever want to do is swim in the pool......I'm sure your whole family will enjoy their stay in Belize it is a magical place....However, I do recommend a pool.

Pool Pool Pool. This is so true. Also first trip I hauled down way too many sand toys. Well as a good granny I wanted to be prepared. Now I am so happy to report that many places have fabulous sand toys very reasonably priced. So much more is available in San Pedro.

There is always the alternative (toys not needed), Let their imagination run wild! That is very simple on Ambergris.

Pools are nice ,but at night there isn't much for kids or teens to do in San Pedro . An arcade with skeeball and pool tables and arcade games with supervision would be great for an area for kids to be able to gather without there parents,just ask any kids how have stayed here for a number of days!
