In the village-talk to Laura Godfrey at Trip N Travel-
2.) Monkey River Tour-Percy with Barebones Tours–has had Jack Hannah on his tour, and is said to be the highest rated Monkey River tour guide. You can check him out here…http://www.barebonestours.com/
Also, if you are doing this tour, here are some great tips from Trip Advisor from guests who were on it (must read if you want to keep monkey poop off you).
3.) Snorkeling and Scuba Diving with Splash: everyone may have already heard this! But, the guests we have had come down for diving, consistently say that Splash is the best/cleanest/most professional diving group. You can see their diving tours here:
4.) Day sails and snorkeling–we got a good review for the Daytripper Catamaran Charters, they can be reached at:
$75 US includes lunch and rum drinks
5.) Robert’s Grove Sunset Cruise–we recently went on this trip with our guests and it was awesome! For $20 US, you get two drinks, (sometimes snacks too), and you can purchase snacks or drinks from the bar onboard. It is a fun two decker boat, and you take a leisurely cruise through the lagoon. We saw tons of dolphins right by the boat and had a spectacular sunset! Highly recommended for a quick (4-7pm) excursion that is cheap. They also shuttle you from your place to Robert’s Grove. You can see their schedule here:
6.)Also, we heard the Tarpon Caye Fishing excursion was really good. We will be going on this ourselves mid December with some guests. For $300 US for a party of 4, you can go out for 5 hours, starting at 7:30 am, and you get to decide what kind of fishing you want to do! I can’t wait! (I chose the package of fishing for something we might be able to catch and eat, but we will see. I better perfect putting a worm on a hook before I get too ambitious.) Here is more info:
7.) And finally, for an even more ambitious excursion…..how about this one!!
Here, you will go out from Dangriga….to the outer cayes!! Here is a description, and you can even do your first scuba open water dive to get certified! We are going to be trying this in the future and will review.
…in early December with our friend Anna, from Cleveland, who will be in town. I will be sure to review this as well!! Poor Anna is going to be worn out on her trip….she is already scheduled to go to the ATM tour, Tikal, a wine tasting, Belize Ocean Club, help us volunteer at the Placencia Marathon, and maybe even snorkel….all in 5 days!! 🙂
OK on the flip side…it is not ALWAYS perfect here…we had beautiful weather for a few weeks….then a cold front came in 2 days ago. It has been rainy and cold (73 degrees…..I can imagine the eye rolls I am getting!)
RIGHT before the front came in….poor Dave ambitiously decided to help out by filling in some potholes on an access road by our place. As SOON as the delivery guy had dumped all the filler…..it started pouring (that was 2 days ago and it hasn’t stopped!) The insane amount of work he put in is not showing…..yet…..but when it dries out I am sure he will feel like a hero! Till then….it is a bit of a sludgy mess 🙂 HUGE THANKS to Dick and Sandy Beach….our newest neighbors on the peninsula….who saved the day by helping out with their bobcat!! Wait a minute, Dave isn’t even helping in this picture, Dick is driving and Perfecto is…helping!
