Please Note: This Day to Day itinerary can be changed slightly depending on the time of year you visit. Additional activities can be added upon request. We want to ensure that your vacation meets all your expectations. Changes or additional activities may affect package pricing.
Day 1:Arrive in Belize
You are personally greeted at the Belize International Airport by a representative of Adventures in Belize. Your representative will direct you over to the local airline desk where you will board your flight to San Pedro. In San Pedro, you will take any taxi from the air strip to Xanadu Island Resort and they will pay the taxi driver upon your arrival. Check in, then head to your accommodations. It would be a good idea to head over to the Amigos Dive shop in town to arrange your dive times. Dinner tonight is on your own.
Being new in town, we recommend that you stay close to your hotel. You are welcome to have dinner at Rico's, located next door on the beachfront at Banyan Bay Villas. They offer a great menu to choose from as well as a good choice of wines. Try their Conch Ceviche for the appetizer and for desert - the Mortal Sin (you will need to confess this!).
Day 2:Half Day Snorkel to Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley
Breakfast is on your own - you may want to try having breakfast at the "Monkey Bites Cafe", located just north of Xanadu. Your first full day on the island begins with a combo trip to Hol Chan/Shark Ray Alley. Located about 5 miles south of the island, the first stop is the Hol Chan Marine Reserve which is a spectacular underwater park that has become the most popular snorkel site around San Pedro. This site has some excellent coral formations and a variety of colorful fish. The second stop is Shark Ray Alley, just a short distance from Hol Chan and is the home of Nurse Sharks and Sting Rays. This is your opportunity to reach out and touch and experience nature at its best! Return to the island in time for lunch, which is on your own. Afternoon trips can also be arranged in exchange for the morning trip. Dinner that evening is at the Blue Water Grill located at the edge of San Pedro Town. Here you can enjoy your meal under the stars, in a most romantic setting.
Day 3:Relaxing Aromatherapy Message for Two
Breakfast is on your own - a good breakfast option to try is "El Divino" located at Banana Beach Resort, south of Xanadu. Your day is a restful one, with a relaxing aromatherapy massage for two in either your own room or at the spa in town, which can be arranged for whatever time of day best fits your plans for today. Lunch and dinner are on your own.
Day 4:Full Day Bacalar Chico World Heritage Site and Snorkel Excursion
Breakfast is on your own - we recommend for today's breakfast, trying out "Ramon's Village". This restaurant is on the beachfront near their totally exotic pool. Today's exciting tour is the Bacalar Chico full day snorkel and island tour. This tour is one of the newest nature tours on the island. The location of Bacalar Chico is a 90 minute boat ride from San Pedro Town and on the extreme north end of the island where Mexico meets Belize.
The area is a protected sanctuary for mangroves, turtles, crocodiles and birds. You get to explore the jungle of the area and make several snorkel stops in coral patches that do the waters. Take a short walk to the World Heritage site of Rocky Point - where the reef meets the land. The tour includes an excellent Beach BBQ and drinks. Return back to town at around 4:30 pm. Dinner tonight is at Casa Picasso, located near your hotel and is an intimate Spanish styled Tapas restaurant with a great martini lounge.
Breakfast at the resort. Check out and take a taxi to the airport in town for your flight from San Pedro to Belize City and on to your next Belize destination...
