“cockscomb adventure far from private.Would use mayan guide(gregorio or his brother) nextime”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

Booked what we thought was a private tour when 5 others arrived, one a 3 yr old who was outstanding however the guide did not know the birds or have a pair of binoculars even though it is an audabon nature reserve. we went tubing which was lovely but the river was quite low, and to the lower falls on bens bluff? trail but we weren't able to spend much time there as it was late.

Would book with mayan center, either gregorio or his brother, and have them pick you up in placencia. We did a night hike and they know the area, birds, plants, mammals, lizards and you can rent binoculars in the gift shop for 5 belize. I am sure the cost would not be much different and the experience to cockscomb would be better, especially if you arrive early to see the wildlife, instead of late morning.

In none of the correspondences did we state it was a private tour. Part of the arrangement was to bring them to the Cockscombe as a drop off with luggage since they were staying the night but never were we asked for a private tour. When originally inquiring the couple was planning on having us arrange their stay at the Cockscombe, a night hike, a wedding package, transportation to and from the Cockscombe on to Dangriga. We wound up supplying all the contact numbers to them then they arranged everything themselves. That was fine and I'm glad I could help by gathering all this information for them. They never stated they wanted a private tour.

“The best snorkeling trip in Belize”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

Cubby knows the area and took us to gorgeous reefs where we saw a lot of fish and no other people! He stayed with us the whole time, which was an extra bonus. He packed lots of water and fruit and all this just for a half day trip. It was very windy when we were there and I appreciated Cubby's honest assessment of when it was safe to go out and how far it was safe. Other tour operators in the area wanted to sell it no matter what the wind and waves were doing. Cubby also specializes in snorkeling, unlike the other operators who mostly specialize in diving.
