There are so many jungle lodges with good reviews that it is hard to choose. I had read reviews and forum posts and finally had decided that Table Rock seemed like a good match for our family. Upon contacting them, I found out they could not accomodate us for our first night. Since we have a specific window for our trip, and I want to start in the jungle and move to the beach that won't work. Now I have been back to the reviews and websites, looking at Mystic River, Mariposa, Cha Creek, etc., but I thought maybe with a few details somebody can help me with a good match.
1. We are a family of 5: my husband and I, daughters 21 and 19, and a son, 13. We would either need two separate rooms/cabanas or one larger one with two bedrooms.
2. Our plan is to send 4 nights at a jungle lodge to experience Aktun Chen, cave tubing, hiking around the lodge grounds, etc. Then would like to head to Tikal for 2 nights and stay at the Tikal Inn, and finally finish our trip with a few nights or so on Ambergris Caye to snorkel and relax.
3. We are mostly vegan, though 2 of us eat occasional seafood, so staying someplace that will accomodate our dietary needs is important to us.
I appreciate your advice!
