Please let me know if you were to only do 3 or 4 things while staying in Ambergris (that costs anyways) what should we not miss and are worth the money (or free is even better) :)

Are you spending any time on the mainland? If not, then I'd do a ruins tour and possibly cave tubing.

Closer to home, I'd agree with tacogirl.

Thanks now pls tell me more :)

Where is BBQ and Sunset Cruise? How much? When?

How do we get to Mexico Rocks? Marco Gonzalez?

Thanks again! Do you think (as a single mom with one teen boy on the trip) it is worth $500 for us to see the caves and zoo? Wowsers :(

You could save a fortune by doing the zoo and cave tubing on your own. The zoo is a great little zoo, where the animals aren't in concrete pens, but their natural environment.

Awesome idea!! So do we just take the ferry to the mainland and grab a bus? What would we be looking at for time...ferry..plus bus?

How far is caves....can we rent tubes there?

Thanks for all your great ideas!!!1

The only issue is getting the last few miles to the park. You could take a cab from the city. Once there, you can use Fryjack, who we always use. He'll provide all the equipment, and guide you through the caves. You're looking at a couple of hours, one way. It's totally worth it.

Enjoy the tubing!
