Hi all, We did Ambergris Caye last year for our honeymoon and went all out with Victoria House and also stayed on caulker for a few nights at Seaside. It was wonderful and we fell in love with it. AND concieved our first child there, who is now 3 months old!
Anyhow, we are hoping to go back next July with our son who will be 15 months old. This time we are wanting to go on the cheap. We love laid back places with good people.
Could you recomend some inexpensive places to stay for a reasonable price that would allow a child? I think last time someone suggested Corona Del Mar...is that still a good option?
We are also thinking of inviting my parents, so places with 2 bedrooms would be a great option.
Thank you so much.
Do you think the airfare will EVER go down?! :o(. That is what may prevent our return, but I hope not.
:o) Caroline

Experts predict airfare will only go up as fuel costs rise. Not a good thing for travelers. Glad I purchased my tix months ago!

there are lots of options out there, as 'cheap' can sometimes be a relative term.

use the lodging link here (see top of page), it is a great resource where you can find pics, locations, and pricing of the many places AC offers.

good luck!

If they don't get you for fuel, they will hit you for a fee to check luggage, or a fee for this or a fee for that.

And, it has gone up $200 since I booked my fare - I don't know where in the world you are getting at RT fare from $664 - not from my hometown airport. But, no matter, I will still travel! LOL

BTW, hardley "hysteria", just unfortunate and an inconvenience.

"Been watching airfares to Belize City for a while. From my little town, it has been running about $825. For some reason, the flight that I wanted on Continental was $664 on airfare.com, this evening."

"So I snagged it. Not great but will do. This is more than $100 cheaper than Continental's own site.
We booked a flight a few weeks ago for $850. This is out of Syracuse, NY with 2 layovers. If we had moved earlier it would have been high $700s."

This is what I'm reading

I remember the good ole days when I paid $450, with taxes for RT to Belize from Northern Calif. I used an award ticket with Continental for Thanksgiving week this year, but my traveling companion paid full price for his ticket and it is now $200 more for same ticket.
