After quite a bit of research, most of which on TripAdvisor, my future wife and I have pretty much decided on Belize for our honeymoon; specifically Hamanasi for 8 nights in August.
After considering spots in AC and Cayo, we thought Hamanasi would give us access to all the stuff we wanted; on the water, access to jungle excursions, and a "nicer" resort feel (not a condo). We also love to snorkel but we're looking to use our trip as our introduction to diving.
For those of you familiar w/Belize, does this seem like a sound plan? Hamanasi gets rave reviews. From what I can tell the only (occasional) gripes seem to be about the remote location and some say the nearby diving isn't that great so you have to upgrade get the better experience. I don't as much mind to pay to upgrade provided there are enough to make the trip...which could be an issue in the off season when we're going.
We'd also considered splitting the trip up; 4 nights on AC and the rest elsewhere. Would this be a better plan to make sure we get the best dive and/or snorkel experience?
Thanks in advance.
