I've kind of hit a little of this topic on a couple of posts, but figured I'd make one of my own so I don't step on everyone else's threads.
I've been looking all over the net to find where we're gonna stay in Belize this summer and my girlfriend kind of keeps changing her mind about things (not that I haven't done so myself a few times as well).
Where would we find a nice, quiet room with air conditioning, walking distance from (or in) San Pedro? If it's nice there, we may camp (as we originally intended), but my girlfriend isn't too keen on the idea now that it's hit 102 degrees here (Phoenix) and she's hot.
Ruby's seems great, but I've read a few comments about it not being too quiet. It's definitely within the budget though and not completely out of the running.
We'd like to stay under $100/night and preferably under $50/night. Lily's and Spindrift etc look too crowded for my taste.
We're thinking we'd get a room in a place like this for a few nights and then look around while we are there for a place to stay the rest of the 8 total nights we'll be in Belize, unless it would be difficult to find a place right after dia de San Pedro. Would it be difficult to find rooms in AC or CC the first week in July by just talking to people while we are there or should we definitely reserve a place or two for the whole time, in advance?
Caye Caulker would be an option, but we wouldn't want to get stranded in AC if we stayed out too late.
Any help in this would be appreciated.
