This weekend - getaway suggestions??

Looking for suggestions for a group (10 or so 21 yr old college students) on an internship in Belize City and have this weekend free (maybe Thursday or Friday-Sunday? They spent 3 days in San Ignacio (zip lined & cave tubing) and went to Caye Caulker last weekend. Any ideas for something this weekend which will be there the last of their free time?

Tikal and Lamanai are great options like previously mention.

For young enegergetic individuals I would suggest a trip down south for a hiking at Bocawina National park to Antelope's waterfall and combine it with a chocolate tour at Che'il Mayan chocolate in Mayan center.

Also you can do some waterfall rappelling.

Thank you for the suggestions! Young & energetic! Looking at Bocawina National Park/Antelope waterfall/chocolate for sure! I have done some home work and looks great! Do you suggest looking for hostel/hotel/B&B in Hopkins or Stann Creek or Dangriga? I'm hoping where they stay might be able to recommend a tour guide, etc?

Yes Antelope waterfall is a must to do. If you need to move around I suggest you contact Live Belize at info@tolivebelize.com

Would suggest staying in Hopkins. There is the hostel , Funky Dodo at the entrance of Hopkins . Hopkins is right between both activities.

You can view Hopkins from on top of Antelope's viewpoint.

You guys rock! The kids are sold and looking at this as we speak, already found the Dodo! A couple of them mentioned Planencia - do you still suggest Hopkins over Planencia? And thanks for the tour operator info, do you think they need to book tours before they go?

I said Hopkins because it is in between. You could do Antelope first in the morning then have lunch in Hopkins then afterwards do the chocolate tour in the evening.

And if your chocolate tour finishes early you can arrange a trip to Placencia from Maya center and stop in at Tutti frutti for some gellato in Placencia .😉

No need to book a tour before hand but it is not bad to contact them before you reach .

Scarlet Macaw season in red bank at the moment also. Sight not to be missed. See these magnificent birds in their natural habitat. Hiking available there also.
