That would take around 4 hours. I'd plan for an extra couple of hours, and stop at the Blue Hole on the way, and eat at Cheers.

Thanks Tom! If you don't mind me asking, who did you rent your car from? We're still trying to decide if the freedom is worth the expense. We're staying near the middle of Placencia, not in the village so thought a car would be helpful. Plus, some of the tours seem pretty pricey and I've read you can just hire a guide once you get there if you drive yourself. We are familiar with the pedestrian bumps as they are in the Yucatan as well. They're called topas there. Did you go on any tours? What did you like best about Placencia? We are so excited to go!!

Wow! Thanks again for taking the time to be so detailed! We were considering the Monkey River tour and I think we'll do it. $65 sounds reasonable. We don't dive, but love to snorkel. I think we're gonna go on the Hol Chan Reserve tour or maybe to Turneffe off Caye Caulker while we're there. So will probably only mess around on our own down in Placencia. The place we're staying (Barnacle Bills) has kayaks we can use. Also want to go inland and maybe do some cave tubing and visit some Mayan sites. Never been to an all-inclusive resort - like to explore new places, otherwise what's the point of leaving the country??

Looking forward to the warm weather of Belize! We live in New England and today it's snowing/sleeting. Yuck.

Tom, Loggerette... Thanks!

DocFeelWhatever. We are 7 sailors in minivan from Belize airport to Placencia mid-pm (Laru Beya). Does Blue Hole (landlocked version) and meal at Cheers fit in? If so, why? Some will have travelled from Hawaii, most from San Diego.

Next morning all 7 wanna do some sort of day trip. Monkey River is not an option. Following day is provisioning Moorings boat and heading out. We are set for Whale Shark snorkelling after Moorings charter.

Tom,

We are going to Belize in Jan 2012 and probably staying at Maya Beach Hotel close to Placencia. Would love to hear more about your fishing, we are planning on taking our own equipment also. Do you remember who you took the Monkey River tour with? Do you just tell them you really want to fish and they accomodate? Thanks so much for your input. Sounds like everyone had a great time.

Depends when you get in to the airport. If you get in on the early flight, and aren't tired, then both would be fine. If you're too tired, you could always nap along the way.
