Help Me Reduce My Cost A Little?

Hello! OK we are booking tomorrow. Here's what's planned, but I am wondering if we can save $$$ and maybe swap Chaa Creek for something else? We REALLY want to stay at the Phoenix and we got a good deal on LOL, but with CC, by the time we pay room, tax and tours, its a lot, and doesn't include meals. Any suggestions for a similar location, nice accommodations that Pacz will pick up from?

Here's our itinerary:

1. 3 nights AI package at LOL

2. 4 nights at Chaa Creek - only breakfast included - from CC we are planning to do ATM, Cave Tubing and Tikal with Pacz

3. 4 nights Phoenix

Google 'jungle lodge san ignacio' for a few great choices. There are cheaper options, among the many that will come up. There are places in Bullet Tree Falls too, and Pacz picks up for free there.

Enjoy LOL! It's a magical place.

Thank you! Currently getting a price quote at Mystic River - hoping Pacz will pick up from there w/o additional charge. Any other suggestions appreciated

We loved Macal River Camp - a really unique, special experience; you can read my description and review here:

Mystic River is a good choice. Pacz might charge a little extra for the pickup there. I'd forgotten about Macal River Camp. It's at CC, yet a fraction of the price.

Chaa Creek has a good deal on Luxury Link. Hope this works for you.

I'm guessing LOL is Lamanai Outpost Lodge.

Yes LOL is Lamanai, I saw an expert abbreviate it on this site earlier in my research, turns out they weren't laughing at me afterall :)

Thanks for your suggestions - I am looking at either Mystical or Chaa Creek now thanks to the link someone shared above - if we can only save a few hundred bucks, we'll stay with Chaa Creek since we have heard so many great things about it.

Thanks!!!!

CC is well worth the cost and gives you lots of value added and few do and offer so much. its about the best there is in this region
