Family trip to Belize. Booked our flights the day of by randomly finding which central/ south America city/ country has the cheapest flight. A lot of trial and error. Nothing was planned, we met someone in our layover who told us what his plans were and we came along for the ride.
We originally planned to start in Belize city but he recommended against it and suggested to go to the islands right away by taking a cab then a local ferry. It was a great idea! As we drove through Belize city I was frightened, it did not feel safe. However, the islands felt safe and were extremely fun!
