My bride-to-be and I are honeymooning in mid-January at Mata Chica at north end of AC. Never been to Belize before. Would welcome insider suggestions of fun things to see and do in San Pedro, romantic spots to visit, restaurants, snorkeling, Maya ruins, good places to hear local music, natural highlights etc. -- Mark

Congrats on your honeymoon choice. J Buffett was @ Mata Chica last time i was in AC. So goes the rumor.
1. Capricorn for lunch or dinner--take the water taxi as it is near you, or you could walk or bike- [watch for B.U.I.]
2. I loved the Maya Lamainai trip with Tanishi/daniel Nunez. I went by myself as it was a long day, 7a-7p.
3. If you are a novice snorkler, pay a guide and take a small boat. if you're good, take the Winnie EStelle, you'll have to mingle and it's a good value.
4. Impress your new bride with how many Belikans you can drink before noon, then burp your way throught the alphabet. None of my first 4 wives minded this exhibition
5. Do pop into some of the other resorts, like The Victoria House south of town as they all have a different charm.

Here's some things to do and general info:

for fishing,
The Belize Economics Guide, for tax, immigration, business, consular information, and much more.
for real estate agencies and opportunities on the island.
for buying property in Belize
The San Pedro phone book, and search engine for email addresses. A comprehensive Email and Website Directory for Belize Businesses by subject matter is a great new addition.
LOTS of pictures of the island, and links to many galleries specific to activities, like diving galleries, birding galleries, Kay Scott's fantastic FACES $ PLACES OF SAN PEDRO gallery, and more more more...
for over 100 Island Businesses schools, and organizations
for Quick Important Information on Getting here, and pertinent island information
A column by Kevin Gonzales on issues affecting tourism.
for several maps of the island, of Belize, of hotels and businesses and their locations on the island.

Belizean Archaeological information, a weekly column by Dr. Herman Smith:
Ambergris Caye Museum and Historical Society:
25 Years Ago, a weekly column by Angel Nunez, principal of San Pedro High School, on conditions in Belize and on the island 25 years ago. Quite interesting.

Birding on Ambergris Caye:
Belize Electronic Library, has related links to many many websites that are relevant to the lives of Belizeans
The San Pedro Sun, the island newspaper

3 fellows sail to Belize via Havana a few months ago. One owns Mata Chica, see below...
Really cool new trip on the back side. See the island the way the Maya saw it, through the same paths in the mangroves....
Take a boat ride up the New River, tons of birds, animals of various forms, bromeliads, orchids, up to Lamanai, the ancient ruin.
Multi-day trip to the atolls of Belize, Turneffe, Lighthouse, Great Blue Hole

There is this little place called Sweet Basil that is perfect for lunch and dessert. They have a variety of sandwiches and tremensouly delicious desserts. My fiance was in medical school in AC and every time I visited, Sweet Basil was at the top of my list. It's a nice, quiet place at the far end of the island. May I add that the wine is great too.

Romantic spots are just about anywhere you are on AC! Favorite snorkel spots - Mexico Rocksand Tres Cocos on the north end. Hol Chan Marine Park at night.
Estel's Dine by the Sea on the beach in the center of town is my favorite restaurant.
Live music is scattered around town and recorded music at the dance places.
Belize it!
