This was a great experience! It was raining all day while we were there but it was fine for this excursion because the entire excursion was supposed to get you wet and dirty, so you were already dressed accordingly. We could not have chosen a better excursion for such a rainy,wet day. The only thing I warn is that Belize is a very poor country which means their best highway is worse than the worst road you have ever driven on in the US. For this reason, any excursion you might do that requires you to drive anywhere will take a while to get to so expect a long bus ride. Belize was probably the most poor of all the ports this cruise went to.
This was a great excursion but the bus ride was VERY long, I believe 3 hours each way. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and really got into it. The bag lunch provided was not good. You may want to bring food with you if you can.
This was our favorite day and port of all. Cozumel was much more developed than any of the other ports. The dolphin swim and encounter was an amazing experience! The food and alcohol was all inclusive and you could also do snorkeling, kayaking and paddle boarding. You could easily make a full day of this excursion. The port was also very safe. You didn't have to constantly worry about your safety here, which was a nice relief after some of the other ports.
We made the mistake of wandering outside of the port. As soon as we left the port, we were bombarded by people wanting us to buy things, give them money, or take a taxi ride with them. Even inside of the port you had people doing this. Approximately 2 weeks after getting home, my husband read a newspaper article saying there is a travel advisory for Honduras and that there have been several murders of American citizens in the last year that were not solved. Had we known that, we never would have left the port, and may not have even left the ship. I'm sure it would be fine if you had excursions planned but otherwise, proceed with caution and DO NOT go anywhere by yourself at this port.
