I am planning a trip to Belize for me and my boyfriend in October. We'd like to do a combination of jungle/mainland activities (mayan ruins, the jaguar preserve, waterfalls, tubing), and water activities (snorkeling at the barrier reef, shark ray alley, maybe the Blue Hole). There is just so much great stuff to do in Belize, but I also want this to be a relaxing vacation, where we are not running around 24/7. What would be the best way to approach this? Is it feasible for us to stay in one place for the entire trip and do all of these activities? I was thinking of staying in the Cayo or Stann Creek districts as these seem to be pretty close to the mainland activities we'd like to do. But can we do Shark Ray Alley and the Blue Hole as day trips from those districts, or do we really need to be staying at one of the cayes for that?
Also, I'd love people's suggestions for activities that are close enough to each other to combine into one day.
Thanks for the help!
