Coming back

Hi there,

I lurked on this forum 3 years ago before my solo trip to PdC. Thanks to all for the great info, I gathered enough to feel very comfortable going off the AI resort and venturing to Coba and Tulumn on the collectivo. Thanks!

I am coming back in January/February for a week in PdC and then busing it to Belize for anther week.... or at least that it what I am thinking of at this point.

I will be booking a hotel/hostel room in the town so I sure there will be lots of recommendations here to sift through.. I hope!

My friend Laurie stayed at Sahara Hotel when she was here for Taste of Playa. I think she paid like 30 usd for her room and it was great! The hotel is located on the corner of calle 8 and Av. 15 so super close to the beach, bus stations etc. Can't beat the price and it's a nice place.

Also check out Hotel Alux on calle 14 between 10th and 15th. They advertise 400 peso rooms.

Enjoy your stay and let me know if you need ideas for your Belize trip.

Thanks for the links Michelle. Alux is booked and Sahara doesn't have a pool or akitchenette which I am hoping to get. I'm looking at the El Acuario Hotel - only one room left so I should decide soon. Another one I found was the Playa Del Carmen Hotel by H & A. Do you know anything about this one?

I am getting overwhelmed with the planning for Belize! I'm thinking of a week with 3 days at Caye Caulker to include a day trip to San Pedro and 4 days in San Ignacio and area. I am wondering if I have scheduled enough/too much time for each area and I am still deciding if I want to make the trip to Guatemala to see Tikal or if the ruins in Belize will suffice. I want to try snorkeling and see the ATM caves for sure and definitely some down tie just relaxing on the beach.
