Where to go on first trip

We're an elderly couple that plans to spend a month somewhere in Belize. Question: When is the best time, where is the best place for first-timers, should we feel safe?

March is my favorite month, but amongst the busiest. Sept and Oct slower and comfortable. Beach? Mainland? Both?

you should feel safe. It depends what type of things you both enjoy. Laid back beach destinations include Placencia and Caye Caulker. You have the relaxation of sandy beaches and a little (not much) of an urban feeling in that everything is available:restaurants, bars, spas, tour companies etc. Best time of year. March and April are good months. For proximity to archaeological sites and jungle and nature tours, there is Cayo and Orange Walk. These districts are also rich in food variety and have plenty of places to do some shopping. as i said, it depends what type of thing you guys like. the good thing about Belize is that it has a bit of everything and one month is enough to get to know the whole country if you wanted to. you can visit www.travelbelize.org for more insights.

Agreed with above - March - May are great months to Travel with amazing sunny weather. Placencia and Hopkins nice beaches and laid back - Cayo if you prefer Nature/Jungle.
