my wife, two kids 9 and 12 and I are staying in Plancencia for a week at the start of April. I would like to take one or two snorkeling trips during this time and can't really decide on where to go. Given my reading thus far it seems that Laughing bird caye and Glover's atoll may be the best two to visit. I am also contemplatin a trip to see the whale sharks but am unsure of this too.
What I would like to know is if the trip to Glover's is really worth it if you are only going to snorkle? I can see it is fantastic if you are wall diving, but It is a long way out just for snorkeling.
Is the inner lagoon at Glover's shallow and is the snorkeling excellent there, or really no different from say Laughing bird caye.
Where would you go if you had two days of snorkeling to plan and were staying plancencia?
What about the whale shark experience. I think my kids are too young and small to be swimming with a 60 ft. whale shark. Besides it is also a long way out and how likely is it that we will actually get to see one.
Sorry for all the questions and thanks.
