AC Tourist Spots - 03/01/03 05:36 AM

Hey everyone. I'm headed to AC this sunday for about a week and was wondering if you could hit me up with some of the places you think I should see. I heard the beaches and ruins were a site! Let me know of any other tourist spots on AC that are eye catching. Thanks. -Tyler

Tyler - Just guessing here but I'm betting youhaven't dnme much homework yet. Right? There are no ruins of any consequence or easily discernable on AC. They are all on the mainland. Now, you can get there for a day trip, sure and they are tons of fun & definitely worth the effort.

The beaches are not those pretty Caribbean Travel & Life Magazine pristene, sugary, soft sand type that go on forever and lined with tall languid palm trees. The reef prevents that geological event from happening.

But we all love it anyway. Might I suggest you use that little search butotn up there on the right hand side at the top, or the one on the lower left and read to your hearts' content. You'll find lots of good info from everyone!

hi Tyler! I am a first timer to AC as well. Click on "Goods & Services" at the top of this page, you can find all the tour operators and what they have to offer there. If you see something you like, come back down to the message board and do a search on it, see what others had to say. KLC is right, searching is the key to finding out most everything. Check out this whole awesome site - it is so much more than just the message board. Enjoy your trip! Post a trip report when you get back. smile

PS, Toad's feet do not qualify as a tourist attraction, I don't think........ wink

I don't know what activities you are interested in, but some cool things folks have done are caving trips & lamanai and altun ha ruins on the mainland, snorkle shark ray alley/hol chan, rent a golf cart and explore as far as you can go north and south, parasailing, manatee trips, fishing, diving, diving, DIVING!Remember to slow down and enjoy the folks who live there, have a conversation or ten. Enjoy their beautiful home. You are on an island, surrounded by ocean, AND THE SUN IS SHINING! I think you'll find plenty to do. smile
