That's not to say that you couldn't. Not only does the Aguada have its own restaurant and bar, it has Lenny. Lenny is the hotel manager and can arrange any kind of tours you want for no extra cost. He can even arrange a few days out at the cayes --something we plan to take advantage of next time.
The Aguada is a very inexpensive hotel by US standards, but it doesn't lack any of the amenities. Air-conditioning, hot water, and 24-hour electricity are just some of the amenities --and in Belize, this is something to write home about. The staff will do your laundry, and you can check your e-mail. One way that they won us over, was by changing us to a larger room during our stay without charging us more money for it. We didn't even have to ask --they suggested we might like a larger room.
Of course, I must mention their menagerie. In their backyard, I counted one horse, five rottweiler puppies, one bunny rabbit, and countless iguanas. It was like having our own zoo. Because the dogs do not come inside the hotel, my allergies were not affected.
Try to stay in one of the upstairs rooms.
This is a great family hotel that has won a place in my heart.
