Hello all... I've been to Belize each of the last 2 years and am thinking of coming back again - for a month this time. In the past it's only been for a week or two so there weren't so many logistical things to think about. I'm not looking at coming again until the fall... probably October (depending on the answer to my first question) but preferrably November (unless the answer to my second question is that it'll be a much more expensive month to rent for).
- My passport is valid until May 2008... is there a minimum number of months it has to be valid for past when you visit? For some reason I think it has to be valid for at least 6 months past the date of the visit, but I'm not sure where I picked this up from. I'm coming from Canada, btw, in case that's even different from any rules for US citizens.
- Accomodations... I know it'll be cheaper to rent an apt for a month than stay in a hotel/resort like I've done in the past. To make sure I'm saving enough, can anyone give a guestimate about the rates around that time of year and for October vs. November. Ideally I'd be looking for something on the beach (or very close to it), furnished, that includes utilities and laundry. For the slow season is it completely unrealistic to think I could get something half decent for $500-$600 US?
I know it's very early to start thinking about this, but if there are passport issues I'll have to work around, I'd rather get a head start.
