I am coming to AC for the first time one June 11 (next Sat), so excited! But I am wondering how is the phone situation now? Ok or still up and down? Can I rely on using my credit cards or should I buy traveller's checks?

Also if I bring cash do the restuarants on AC take USD? I know some places charge an extra charge on the bill if you pay by credit cards.... Thanks!

Use the internet cafe's to call and use e-mail. USD is accepted everywhere. Have fun and travellers checks are always a good idea anywhere absoad. cool

I usually don't bother getting traveler's checks, however, I did this visit because of the problems last month. I never needed them. Virtually everywhere that we went took credit cards. We had minor problems in San Ignacio and on Caye Caulker with the credit cards, but not in San Pedro.

Hey, Reaper, trip was awesome, as usual. One of these days I may even do a trip report. It was great meeting you, and your new wife and son, as well.

I'm working on convincing my kids (adult) that we all need to go to Belize late this fall. I don't know how I managed to raise two kids who want to stay home!

Re phone: buy a Belize phone card. I called my mom on Mother's Day - no problem. U.S. phone cards no longer work down there.
