I'd appreciate your advice on a recommended 10-days itinerary to Belize later this month (spontaneous...) with our 2 and 6 years old. We're very experienced travelers, we dislike resorts, we travel on a budget and look for local culture, nice beaches and fun activities for kids. Our last holiday with the kids was in Nicaragua (volcanoes, surfing, zipline, markets - that's the spirit).
I've been reading a lot about Belize and think around the direction of some jungle+mayan ruins time, and some beach time, but I must admit I can't find a whole lot about travelling with kids and activities for kids there and I can't quite figure out if it's a budget place or expensive resort sort of place (I keep getting recommendations for Chaa Creek for families, but that's completely off our budget...)
Any recommendations would be greatly welcomed!!!
Thank you very much in advance,
p.s. my husband and I have already been to Tikal, so we are interested in what Belize proper has to offer.
