Belize has been on my bucket list since I was a student studying Outdoor Recreation and Tourism at the University of Wyoming back in 1998! My advisor was approached about the opportunity to go and teach down there one summer and bring a couple of his students. I was not familiar with Belize at the time, but it had been attracting the adventure tourists for a while and was starting to see some growth. He did not end up going, so the opportunity never was passed along, but the seed was planted to experience it one day.
What is great is that Southwest actually flies into Belize (as well as most other airlines, but I am pretty loyal to Southwest!). I found a great package deal that includes flights and 6 nights at the Coco Beach Resort on Ambergris Caye, Belize for $2,687 for two people! The price even includes the transfer to the Island!
One of the main things I want to do there is go cave tubing! I found a company that takes you on a full day trek through the forest, cave tubing and zipping for around $85/person! In looking at some of the other actives, such as snorkeling, fishing, checking out howler monkeys, I could easily see spending close to $500/person just on activities!
So for a mere $3,687, two people can experience the wonder that is Belize! Anyone looking for a +1 to join them?
