Trip review
Belize

loved their trip to Belize

Crooked Tree Sanctuary and Half-Moon Caye were both magical places, that had previously existed only in my dreams. All the guides were excellent, knowledgeable, and helpful. A plus is that they were all native English-speakers, so communication was easy. The food in both places was excellent - fresh, well-prepared, well-balanced and plentiful!

Best parts:
Walking around the Crooked Tree sanctuary, looking at wildlife. Snorking and yoga on the Half-moon Caye
Worst parts:
boat ride from the Half-Moon Caye back to Belize City. The regular boat had a broken motor, so they sent a replacement boat. The replacement boat was much smaller than the regular one, and didn't arrive at Half-Moon Caye until 5:00 p.m. The ride was very uncomfortable and seemed dangerous. We arrived at the dock in Belize City at 7:00, which was after dark, going very fast.

We greatly appreciate that you chose to travel with us. We are so happy to learn that you loved Crooked Tree Sanctuary, the wildlife. the facilities.and snorkelling and yoga on Half Moon Caye. We are also glad to hear that you enjoyed the food! Our Operations Manager advised that breakdowns are rare, but in this instance we had an unpredictable engine problem caused the boat coming out to the island to turn around. A 38 foot half covered boat was immediately available and deployed to pick up the guests, which is smaller than the 50 foot covered boat which normally picks up the guests. Although we can not control the weather or unforeseen circumstances such as this one, we do pride ourselves on getting people safely to their destination. We are sorry that it was not the most comfortable ride, but we do not anticipate this happening again. We very much appreciate your feedback and hope you can join us again in Belize.See more
