HOSTELS AND ADVENTURES IN BELIZE

Home
There are TWO Hostels in Belize of good quality and low price!

THERE ARE TWO HOSTELS IN BELIZE! BOTH OWNED BY THE SAME FAMILY MEMBERS. THE AUXILLOU'S.

( update for Jan. 2007 - There are now two more hostels on the back streets of Caye Caulker. Another 40 bed hostel is reported on San Pedro, Ambergris Caye. FALCONVIEW TOURIST BACKPACKERS ADVENTURE HOSTEL is the only one still anywhere else in the country at 2007 rates of $9 a night, cook your own in a communal kitchen.)



THE FIRST HOSTEL IS TINA'S BACK PACKERS HOSTEL, right on the beach at Caye Caulker just inside the Great Coral Barrier Reef. Prices range between $10 usa and $20 usa a night depending on choices. Plus tax of about 10%. From here you are right in the center of all the activity on the island. Lots of restaurants. Snorkeling trips, scuba lessons, skydiving, Blue Hole trips to the offshore Atolls, moonlight cruises, weddings on the beach. You name it! Tina's Hostel has seen it all. This is a funky place and a great favorite. There is a waiting list for beds or rooms, when the island is full. Tina could tell you a lot of stories. She worked the diplomatic circuit in Africa, ran Safaries in Kenya, scuba instruction and chartering tourism in St. Barts in the Eastern island chain of the Caribbean, tourist operations in Curacao. Tina is an adventurer sailor and does boat charters and is a dive master/instructor for SCUBA.



The second family HOSTEL is out in the foothills of the Belize Alps in Santa Elena one of the twin towns straddling the Macal River draining the Belize Alps. This is FALCONVIEW BACK PACK ADVENTURE HOSTEL. Prices run from $7 usa a night to $20 usa depending on privacy issues. This one is more of a Spanish Hacienda and here you can book low budget daily trips to the major local hilltop Mayan ruins. You won't get a better trip for the price anywhere else. This is Tina's father who is retired here. They can get you into ACTUN TUNICHIL MUKNAL a restricted expedition into a 3000 year old underground cave system with skeleton and pottery. Fabulous spooky adventure! You have enough in a group, they can arrange trips to the Belize Alps, canoing the Macal River Gorge and all kinds of funky stuff. They do an AUGUST Mountain Bike race ( Tour de Belize ) Also an Annual MAYA MOUNTAINS FOLK MUSIC FESTIVAL on flutes and marimbas mostly around Christmas. The old man is into doing all kinds of community development, with old Mayan Pottery techniques, wood carvings,original oil paintings, solar ovens, organic garden, poverty fighting vegetable hydroponics. Fascinating old guy of 68 years. His wife is much younger. Great place! The old man delegates most of his adventure trips now to young guides. But in his day, he pioneered the tourism industry in Belize back in 1964. Introduced scuba diving, the famous BLUE HOLE dive, Hol Chan channel, island camping trips, marine biology expeditions and anthropology expeditions into the interior. He may be slower, but he is still parafoiling in the mountains and doing lots of new adventures opening up new tourism sites in the interior. He even scuba dived to the bottom of the Blue Hole in 1972 with a friend. (387 feet thereabouts before mixed helium gases ) He loves the challenges!



The old man's other three daughters, Sharon, Diane and Wendy each, have either condo's or guest houses and other rentals on the beach. They are all into adventures.
