Going to Hopkins mid February. Will Bioluminescence tours be running that week? I know it is dependent on no moon being out to go. Also, interested in seeing Mayan ruins (tour) not us driving & wonder what the Monkey River tours show on an excursion. Comfortable driving to Placencia ,Dangriga & Belomopan. Are the Cave tours on the river running now? We have our inlaws with us both of them are not very athletic & long walks may be an issue. Thanks for any info on tours they may enjoy.

I didn't know that bio-luminescence was predictable or seasonal but I was on a night dive last week and even with an almost full moon we saw it.

We went on the monkey river boat trip from Placecia. Very enjoyable, all day trip with lunch in the village. Saw great amount of sea life en route having the dolphins jumping within a few yards of the boat was nice.
We came to the states for our last adventure before we die but as we didn't die yet, there is time for another adventure this time back to Belize.

There has been a tremendous amount of rain and high water in Hopkins the past 2 weeks. Not the best conditions for the bioluminescent tour. Lots of resorts have Mayan ruin tours that drive you. But if you are willing to drive to Belmopan why not just drive 45 minutes further to Xunantunich yourself to take the tour. It will save you some money. Also with all the rian it is day to day whether the cave tours operate.
Stupid should hurt!

Thank you for the current update on conditions in Hopkins. Perhaps we will drive to Xunantunich for the day to tour.

I's still looking for a guide who will give my wife and me a two hour tour of Belmopan. Any suggestions?
