Hi I am planning on going to Belize in april and researching places to stay. I want to stay in San pedro/Ambergis Caye, however I have some concerns. How often do the boats go from the island to the inlands? I want to do activities such going to the ruins, caves etc but afraid that we may not get back to the last boat in time and will be stuck in the city.

Is this a valid concern or do the boats leave late enough that I can enjoy all that without worry. What if I want to have dinner in belize city would it be possible to do that and get back to my hotel? Another question is how often do the boats run?

Oh if anyone has recommendations for hotels please let me know.

Thanks

There are outfits that run the inland tours from the islands. May cost a little more than taking the water taxi and then the bus but you don't waste as much time and will get back on time.

Why would you want to go eat in Belize City? There are more than enough good restaurants on the island.

Lunch in Belize City would be more workable than dinner unless you plan to stay overnight.

I cannot think of a single restaurant in Belize City that competes with the luscious food served in host of great spots in San Pedro - the idea of dining out in Belize City is something to leave off your trip agenda!

Unless something has changed, the Smokey Mermaid on Cork street, accross from the Radison is worth going to.

Besides that, you will be very happy with all the great food on AC. You can get to almost everything you want to do. Be careful and don't over do. Take time to relax and enjoy the beauty that will surround you.

Thanks Boostted smile

I have always heard good things about the Riverside tavern but never eaten there although knowing they serve Gallon Jug Beef makes me pretty sure I would like it cause it is so tasty.
