My husband and I just returned from an incredible two week vacation in Belize. I received a lot of help on this forum, so I am posting a trip report hoping it might help someone else with their planning. I will start by saying that I love planning our vacations. It is fun for me. I am one of those obsessive folks who make a binder for each trip we take. (I know that SOME of you can relate to this!) This trip was a challenge for me, but in the end, our research paid off, as it resulted in an itinerary that perfectly suited us, and everything went smoothly. I found the following guide books informative and helpful: Lonely Planet Belize, Fodor’s Belize: with a Side Trip to Guatemala, and Insight Guide to Belize.
My husband and I are in our mid-fifties, and we love wildlife, SCUBA/snorkeling, and fishing, so it seemed that Belize would be a good fit for us. (And it was!)
I got a little wordy when writing this report, so I will break it into several posts.
