At least two internet cafes, one to the south of Sunbreeze, and one to the north in town, close to Fido's.

Note that the Internet place next to El Patio has a membership thing, believe the cost is US$20, which may make sense for anyone planning to use the Internet more than a time or two.

Also, Banana Beach is opening an Internet place, with a high-speed connection, mainly I think for the use of its guests, although it will be located in a small separate building at the front of the resort. Not sure when it will be ready.

High speed internet? <kathy's ears perking up>

Are they getting this through Houston Media Systems? I REALLY want high speed internet service, but I can only get sporadic responses from HMS.

Also a place in town down near Fidos and the homemade ice cream shop, not that I like food or anything! I think it is the coconet cafe. $5 US for a half hour last I remember, but I drank a few belikins that trip

Just as a general comment, rather than specifically about Banana Beach, I've seen recently that more and more hotels in Belize are going with one of the satellite services. For example, Kanantik, which is stuck out in the middle of nowhere between Hopkins and Placencia, offers free Internet access to guests on a computer in its lobby, via Starband. Seems to work okay, though the main speed advantage is for downloads. A U.S. address is required, but that's rarely a problem. By next year, especially post-BTL, I think to be competitive many of the major hotels and resorts in Belize will be offering some kind of satellite Internet access for their guests, not to mention for their own use.

...there are a NUMBER of folks on AC having pretty great luck w/ Starband (except in really cloudy weather.) -definitely not having the same signal problems that folks with Directv are experiencing right now. Though I DOUBT Starband is going out of business, the Co has filed for bankruptcy protection (due to problems with Dish Networks who they were associated with) ...they say it's just "re-structuring". Another option for sat. net access is Directway (www.directpc.com) -seem to remember seeing a few boxes being unloaded at Tropic with Directway dishes a few weeks ago...
