Good Evening All,

Not that we're counting, but can't wait to return to paradise. Any advice on advance airline ticket prices. Thought maybe some old pros might have a tip. We found a $760 round from Detroit and wondered if that might be as good as it gets in light of fuel costs. I realize that no one can predict, but wondered what others have seen over the last six months to a year as a barometer. Hope you all keep ducking the storms and have a great second half of the weekend...Peace

I usually found the prices to be cheaper when it was within 3 months of going, I would wait.

you're welcome. it is too bad you have to wait so long. Funny thing, I am counting down too until I return to the states...to my home state. Been a long time and really looking forward to 5 days there.

Book late, the Board will save you the money by the advise you receive. We look after everyone who comes here as we would our own family (except certain exceptions like Pedro1, who doesn't need help, of course!)

unless you come during xmas time. if you wait more than 8 weeks, it goes up, up, up. At least in 2003 and 2004 it did. It kept going UP, UP, UP. It was $500 in Oct, then $600 then to $850 when I purchased it then $1000 for a ticket I usually paid in the $400's for. Dec/Jan trips seem to be the time you should buy 2-3 months ahead.

I'm from Michigan and now live here, so I've shopped for those same tickets many times. My parents and little brother flew here last year from Detroit for $450, but that was in March. My brother and sister-in-law just were here a few weeks ago and they flew from Charlotte, North Carolina for an all time low of $350. If you can get a travel agent to route you through that airport, you may get a cheaper rate. You can do it yourself, of course, but it's such a pain in the butt and takes forever to check all of the websites where they try to route you all over the U.S. with overnight layovers. I need to take my own advice and book when the fares are lower, I'm flying to Florida for a few days and it's costing me $660. My mom follows the rates pretty regularly for their next visit, so if you pm me I'll be happy to send you a message when the fares are down. My husband and I sometimes fly via Cancun, which is super cheap, and spend a few days in Playa del Carmen drinking margaritas. That definitely makes the hassle of a 5 hour bus ride from Chetumal to Playa and then the 50 minute shuttle to the Cancun airport totally worth it! Good luck and happy travels!

I know what you mean, I am really looking forward to visiting the States too. It's funny the things that you end up missing most. What are you looking forward to most? For me, shopping at the mall and going to a movie are definitely on my must-do list. Okay, I'll admit it, I also miss fast food... My mom talking about having lunch from Taco Bell and I was missing it until I remembered that my last taco fix was snapper tacos at Wild Mangos, which were super yummy. But after a short while I'm so ready to get back home.

BrownEyedGirl, there is little I miss...but I just am missing my family the past 2 days. You said after a short while you are so ready to get back home. How long have you lived here?
I love it here, just looking forward to 5 days in Minnesota.

Kra-Z-K,
I've lived in Belize for 3 years, the last 8 months here on the island. I absolutely love it here and pinch myself everyday that I'm lucky enough to call Belize home. Living the dream is amazing.

It is hard to be apart from family, I really miss them too. But I get to see them fairly often because they come and visit and we go to the the U.S. to visit our families a month a year in the summer. That way we get to vacation with them and spend some quality time together. We also fly to Michigan or Florida for a couple weeks at different times of the year, so it's not too bad.

As far as living though, I definitely prefer life here over Michigan for sure. I've had enough long winters to last a lifetime!
