Ok, to sum it all up, here's the nutsell version of our trip:
SunDiver - beautiful property, great pool, beach bar, rooms, restaurant, service (Michael and Hugo were GREAT!). We got off to a rocky start at first with the room-switching, but all in all a wonderful experience. Tazmara and the gang went above and beyond the call of duty to make our wedding extra special! Some of us liked being that far north, others didn't. Just a matter of whether you like to take a boat to get to town. I enjoyed that, but saw the advantages of staying in town as well. I'd recommend SunDiver to anyone!!! Loved it!
Hustler Tours - Class Act! Especially Larry. If you get a change to dive with him, do it (so says Joe). Their catamaran is a must-do! Rubio and Steve were great sailors!
Parasailing off Fido's Dock: Just do it!
Celi's deli - hearty home-cookin'.
Elvi's - really enjoyed the coconut shrimp. Good service and atmosphere, too.
Fido's - good location, food not so good, overpriced. Great art gallery and jewelry shop.
Papi's - I didn't get a chance to go, but everyone our group who went said it was the BEST! Several people went back a second time it was so good.
Searious adventure tours - my family used them to go to Altun Ha (Joe and I didn't go), and they said it was GREAT!!!!
Kay Scott - took some GREAT photos although I asked her not to shoot my profile, and I got several pictures back with my profile (I understand it's very hard to NEVER take a profile picture, though, and overall, I'm VERY pleased with the pictures!).
Iraida Gonzales - very sweet and took very good care of us (she's the wedding coordinator). We didn't have to worry about a thing!
Lynde from La Diosa Spa near Victoria House - GO SEE HER! She will make all your troubles and cares melt away in seconds!!
The Weather -- PERFECT!!! Hardly any bugs at all, and only a couple of very quick (5 minute) rain showers.
Cayo - Beautiful, lush, green, hot and humid, friendly people.
Martha's - cheap, clean place to rest a weary toured-out head
Tikal - awesome, but TAKE A GUIDE! We were advised to do it on our own by our tour operator, and I think that was just so he could keep more money in his pocket. I wish we would have taken a guide.
Five Sisters - great, relaxing, good service by the staff. The bartender/waiter (we were the only guests there!) was so sweet!
Bus from Belize City to San Ignacio and back: best value -- $5US for BOTH of us to ride!
Overall trip -- EXCELLENT, WONDERFUL, AWESOME, PERFECT!!! I can't wait to go back, especially to Ambergris Caye (I realized this trip I am definitely a beach person - I could have spent the whole time on AC and been perfectly happy!)
Thanks to everyone for all the advice you gave - it really helped us plan our trip!!
I miss AC already!!
