Island Expeditions is an excellent tour guide with knowledgeable guides and staff. Activities were well planned and you always felt supported by the staff. There is always an effort to educate about both environment and Belize culture as well as entertain and provide adventure.
There were always lots of options including hammock time.
The Food was AMAZING!, Tasty, healthy, prepared with many Belize local ingredients, great variety. One person in our group was allergic to shell fish and they always prepared an optional dish for him.
We did optional Yoga in the mornings before breakfast which was an unexpected treat and excellent way to loosen up tight muscles before the days activities.
If you want a bar and some cold adult beverage, you can always walk next door to the other operation that shares the island, Isla Marisol, and have a Belikin Beer or Rum drink at their pier side bar. Isla Marisol also provides scuba diving for an additional fee.
The tents were adequate with comfortable beds, cubbys to unpack in, a nice porch with wood chairs, kerosene lamps, lines to dry out your wetsuit or gear.
If you want and need luxury, privacy, pampering, maybe even room service this is NOT the place for you! If however, you want adventure and relaxation with a small group of like minded people, this is a very pleasant vacation indeed.
Well managed, well staffed, great food, unique experience you simply can't find at a hotel!
