Possible November trip- excursions

I’m looking at an early November trip- still back and forth between CC , AC or Hopkins- we’re looking to snorkel and dive a couple of days. Any ideas on Costs / companies? Thanks!

I personally wouldn't choose Hopkins for a snorkel/dive trip because the reef is so far out. Between Caye Caulker and Ambergris Caye we hugely prefer Caye Caulker. Here are links to the place we stay and to the dive shop I recommend. Have a great trip, whatever you decide!

The two cayes are quite different.

AC is more developed and gets more tourists & retirees, while CC is smaller, quieter and more laid-back. Both have good access to the barrier reef for diving & snorkelling.

AC has nicer beaches and more food options in the town of San Pedro. CC is a bit cheaper, and is more popular with backpackers. I like both places.

I don't know how many dive companies are on each caye -- probably more on AC. Another popular dive company on CC is Frenchie's.

Hopkins wouldn't be on my list of places to stay.

FYI, the further north on Ambergris are much fewer people. Some divers prefer the reef further south and don't mind being further away, but all dives are two tanks.
