My wife and I will be picking up a car in Mex and driving into Belize March 1.

Our plan is (which is our norm for travel)not to make any reservations and just see what we end up with.

We will drive down to southern Belize and make some jungle stops, a night or two, but also take a few days or more and go to San Pedro and Caye Caulker.

My question is, how important is it to make reservations? Is this year quieter because of the western economies being so bad?

I don't want to take the chance of getting to the islands and be out of luck on a hotel. That rarely happens to us in Mexico but I have never been to Belize.

You can always find something, but, perhaps surprisingly, March is generally the busiest month of the year for tourism in Belize.

The economy is doing better this season. Yes you can usually find something, but it may take you some hours at each stop to do so. You will end up with very high end or low end places. I also like to travel without booking in advance, but try to find a few one night reservations on my trips just to have a place rest and check things out. If I get detained I only loose the one night fee. March is the busiest.

In reading this, what do you plan to do with the car you pick up in Mexico before you head to Ambergris Caye/Caye Caulker?
