3 moms taking 4 day trip to Placencia for 50th bday. Want to do snorkeling, ziplining , see one of the Mayan ruins and perhaps cave tubing or monkey river. We are flying in from different cities and land an hr apart in BZE.
I have several ?-
1. Should be fly (even though we have to wait an hr or 2 to get on puddle jumper) or take a private shuttle and see things along the way? Is it possible to visit one of the ruins on way from BZE to Placencia? Would our luggage be safe with driver?
2. cave tubing or monkey river? Preferences?
3. best place to snorkel? Avadon's has a 12 hr tour to the Blue Hole and Lighthouse Reef. Has anyone done this trip from Placencia. How long on the boat to get out there? Is it worth the travel time just to snorkel out there or is there a better / closer place to snorkel? Any recommendations for tour companies besides Avadon (which I saw mentioned here)
