Last trip down, I had one bag at 69.5 lbs, one at 50, a 39.5 carry on and 2 pieces of hand luggage…$50 extra on Delta, but no problem for Tropic, with their 35lb (?) posted limit!
It took me 4 or 5 goes to pack and re pack to get it just within limits, and no, it wasn’t Jane’s makeup!
I was actually solo, but with 2 BCD’s and Reg Sets, a spare prop for the boat, an Oxygen Kit, Radio, Compass, a new Fuel Filter and Bilge pump etc !
Yes, I paid the duty, and I still saved enough to pay for most of the trip!
As far as a Luggage “tip”: If you plan on being in Belize often, pay $108bze for a prepaid cell phone, buy a $5 card before you leave, and then load it up as you hit Goodson: That way the minutes don’t expire and have your local number on the luggage !
Also, don't forget to ask for cash discounts...Tropic and Maya both love US $$$$

It's rarely rocket science, it's usually just math: then again if you can't do the math.......
