3 out of 5
main Mexican restaurant in the middle, free music and entertainment watching others dance, can watch dolphins swimming in their pens nearby, shop owners are quite pushy, not much outside of general port area
Don't Miss: ATV's were great, but extremely rocky and hot
5 out of 5
Beautiful mountain side scenery while driving to swim with the dolphins, great Tabyana beach too and the food was deeeelious
Don't Miss: swim with the dolpjins if you can't swim or are a little weary on idea-it's great
5 out of 5
Zoo was much better than expected and guide was awesome with his hollar monkey calling. tender boat to get to port was crowded and hot and couldn't wait for it to end, don't plan on much lunch if getting zoo/river package deal
Don't Miss: boat ride down Belize river going back, beautiful and peaceful
5 out of 5
Scoot coupes were lots of fun, but much smaller than imagined. Need larger seat belts and shorter distance between beach and driving. At restaurant if you order the quesadilla, don't get salsa and chips too, they're free already
Don't Miss: Try the scoot coupes anyway

Pros: food, friendliness of staff

Cons: tiny bathroom

Recommends Norwegian Spirit? Yes!
