This was our 3rd. trip to Belize, a place we are considering retiring to so we took the opportunity to hire a private guide who showed us all around Belize City. We didn't actually do an excursion but from all of our cruise critic friends who did they had an amazing time. Cay Caulker is one of the best areas to visit when in Belize. Also go to the Wet Lizard and put your mark somewhere on the wall. We do so each time we are there, so much fun to go back and visit. Belize is a tendered port and it takes approx. 20 mins. from ship to shore. The route the ships need to take to get into the Belizian harbor is quite amazing and something to see, alot of zig zagging.
