Mr.noodleI went there on a cruise for a day and it was awesome, I went ziplining and cave tubing. I'm not exactly sure where I was but I remember seeing little get thingys on the beach near the ship. I can't imagine that they would be very expensive
special-JIf you can get to the Actun Tunichil Muknal cave outside of Cayo, go through it. That was one of the most amazing experiences of my life
I actually enjoyed the Cayo district a lot more than Ambergis. Ambergis is cool, but its a lot like any Caribbean / Tropical beach town you've ever been to. Its extremely touristy and doesn't have a lot of the character of Belize.
Definitely go to Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM). Its one of the most unique experiences you'll ever have. You climb through a cave waste deep in water and see the Mayan underworld.
Steezy_IN_KCI've been to San Pedro, which is just south of Ambergis Caye. I had a wonderful time. I got about 8 hours of dive time in 6 days and would highly recommend diving as much as possible. The reef, second largest to the great barrier reef, is incredible. Tons of wildlife, the most vivid colors I've seen in my entire life. 10/10 would do a again.
PRO TIP: take a puddle jumper if you fly into Belize City. The water taxi is possibly the most nauseating experience of my life and I only took the taxi from the airport to my resort.
Been thinking about splurging for the plane since it looks like its only about $50 more after you figure in the taxi to the port and then the shuttle. Plus it only takes 15 mins.
Safe travels! You'll have a blast.

japanadaLittle get thingys? Please explain these things??
Also I was planning on doing a cave float for a day away from the beach. I hear it can be a bit of a bore tho? A lot of walking and paddling compared to the amount of actual slow floating you have to do?
Steezy_IN_KCOh btw... Belize has a great beer. Straight fire.
proZachYeah but they're like 9.7oz so it feels like you can drink way more until you notice that haha. I went in November to ambergris caye, it was awesome needless to say. Stayed at Ramon's- big diving resort-type thing. Dove the blue hole too. If/when you go, there's a bar right around the corner (to the right) of the airport called Carlo and ernies, definitely grab a bite and some cheap beers. Owners are awesome dudes. Lots of locals hang there, including all the employees from our hotel haha.
And in terms of drugs, just walk down the beach and be touristy. You'll find whatever you want.
Only real down side is the beaches can have a bit more trash than I was expecting, as well as tons of fuckin sea grass that's washed up. If I stop being hung over I'll post some pics I took
