We went last year to Belize and Routan. Whatever you do in Belize, take a tour. We didn't, and if all you want to do is walk around, this is the last port you want to do it in. It is nothing but a tourist stronghold that they put you in, and to walk out, you have to brave the throngs of peddlers. Not nice. We loved Routan, but it was in the middle of a downpour and the streets were flooded, all electricity out, and most stores and restaurants closed. The people were friendly and I think it would have been great in other circumstances.
