Belize is a tough port. We wanted to see the ruins but our daughter is 2 almost 3. So she wasn't old enough for the tour. :(
Everything in this port seems to be far away and the price really adds up for a family. We decided with kids our best choice was Goff's Caye. We booked thru Island Marketing and had a wonderful day. It was beautiful there. A highlight of our trip.
We intended to go to the beach this day but some bad weather and a cranky child kept us from leaving the port area. We did swim the dolphins for a reasonable price and the pool was nice. Wish we could have seen more on this stop.
Cozumel has plenty to do for everyone. We have been here several times. We decided to head to Paradise Beach. We had a great day at the beach and pool, enjoyed a good meal, and some drinks.
We went to West Bay Beach thru Island Marketing. We were seated on the beach at Bananarama Beach resort. Unfortunately, It poured twice while we were there. But it is a great place.
It did take a long time to get there, almost 40 minutes. But it was a much nicer beach than the man made one at mahogany bay.
