Planning expeditions ahead vs. waiting to arrive

Hello! I am visiting Caye Caulker at the end of July and would like to do at least 1 fishing trip, a trip to the blue holes, and a trip to the Mayan ruins. Would it be best to plan these trips ahead of time or will they already be booked up if we decide to play it by ear when we get there?

Do you know what tour provider you want to use for your excursions? Especially during the summer, I doubt the tours go every day. If you know who you want to use, it wouldn't hurt to email them and ask what days they might be doing the tours you want.

If you wait until you arrive, you'll still need to do a bit of pre-planning. You'll also need to be flexible as to what days you'll do what. Most of the tours have minimum numbers they have to meet before the tour will go.

Rarely do they fill up in Summer. I wouldn't pre-book since most tour guides are used to setting up tours the day before.
