I've got lots and lots of questions about where to stay in Belize. We're a family of four, including sons aged 11 and 13. Mr. FFB and I are divers, kids want to learn and go on a couple of shallow dives, along with lots of snorkeling and exploring.

We've heard the Yacht Club and Banyan Bay are good places to take families. Beaches are important for us, some quiet, and since we're Duke grads, a place to watch any NCAA action is mandatory.

All suggestions are very welcome!

thanks,
Fabby

Shameless plug but we have an two/three bed apartment we will be renting from January and which is available from March 10th. It is right on the beach (just North of town but before the river cut so very convenient but quiet) and is just a couple of doors away from Patojo's Scuba Center who are absolutely great. Our website is not complete yet, but if you want more info email me at [email protected]

Hi Fabby <love that name!>
You can rent our house. See if it's something you would be interested in at: //www.ambergriscaye.com/villadelsol/

Don't count on seeing much T.V. on the island!

Have a great time!

Kathy explain about TV on Island statement, please.
My experience with TV on the island was great TV. as good as I get here in S. Texas.
Sports Bars and Fido's have all the major events on for all to watch.

If you don't go with one of the houses, I'd put in a plug for Banyan Bay. It's great for families, as each unit has two bedrooms, two baths (including a jacuzzi) and a really nice kitchen and living room area. Units are fully A/C with cable TV, and there's laundry service on premises. The pool is big and great for kids, and Mar de Tumbo beach is one of the best on the island. There's a restaurant on-site, which has pretty good food and a fabulous seafront setting, but there are plenty of other restaurants nearby or a golf cart trip away. When my family stayed there a few weeks ago, the guests were most families.

Chloe,
I guess I was just thinking about there being T.V. in the rooms. Am I wrong? I thought most rooms do not have T.V.

Hi All,

I'm in the process of checking out the houses (they look great), and Banyan Bay as well. As for the TV, a sports bar will do just fine for our needs.

A friend just sent me something about a Peter Hughes boat going out in Iris, sinking and killing all 20 on board. How awful! What was the story with that?

My sons are 11 and 13, and are hoping to take a resort course so they can do at least one dive with my husband and me while we're there. I heard that some places now certify 10 year olds ... I think my kids are too young now for full certification, but I'd love for them to get an intro (and they're very ready and anxious).
Thanks to all,
Fabby
