Belize- whale shark swimming

Jump to last reply

This is my first long vacation where I have to do all the planning so I wanna make it right. I've been going over all scenarios and I need some expert advice.

Trip Details
Land in Belize- 952am Tuesday June 13
Depart Belize- 1210pm Tuesday June 20

Mode of transportation- 4wd Jeep. Ive heard I shouldn't rent a car in Belize but I really like the idea of exploring things on our own plus I found one at only $42 a day. I know about the high security deposits too.

June 13-June 17 Midas Belize in San Ignacio
*I haven't planned exactly what we are going to do all the days here but a combination of ATM, Caracol, Tikal, cave tubing, zip lining

Now this is the tricky part.
From June 17-20 we wanted to relax on a nice resort with occasional snorkeling or exploring on kayaks. We narrowed it down to Hopkins or Ambergis Caye or Caye Caulker.

Hopkins because it's slightly more affordable and closer to whale shark areas which I really want to do. (June 7-19 is what I was told was the last whale shark season).

Ambergis Caye because it's closer to all the snorkeling and San Pedro and finding food shouldn't be an issue.

Caye Caulker because it's still close to all the main snorkeling and it seems slightly more affordable than AC.

If it was guaranteed we would see whale sharks I would stay in the south in Hopkins. But I don't wanna stay there, then not see whale sharks AND not be able to snorkel in Hol Chan.

Another option I was thinking was staying in Hopkins, driving up to Belize City then do a one day snorkel trip of Hol Chan.

What do you guys suggest?
