There is a cave just north of San Pedro, sponge covered walls and
lobsters all through the cave mouth. Probably takes a special
arangement and small group. Mostly they just take you out to the
barier reef and you drop into spectacular canyons, good fishig. If you
want king conch shells that will probably also take some aranging.
Get in lots of snorkling inside the reef.
Altun Ha is the closest Mayan ruin to Belize City. A ROM project in
the past, it is well escavated and very interesting. Xuantunich has
lots of partial, hap-hasard excavations. Tikal is the premier site in
the area, but you have to cross the border into Guatemala(not far out
If the Foremans are still running the C***Beach Hotel, it is just
off the beach and cheaper than Ramon's, and they are great hosts. My
mouth is starting to water, good food, and good dive guides.
