We just returned from five days on A.C. Stayed at Banyan Bay which was very nice. We were a family of four and we would highly recommend the resort for families! The main item of the trip that I would like to make clear as I was very unaware of this going into the trip and that is the WIND!!! Evidently, this is the time of the year of the trade winds and boy did it ever blow-everyday until the day we left which still had a mild wind. Many activities were cancelled in the mornings because of the wind. It was not that we didn't do anything, we just adapted, adjusted and switched things around alot. Many morning dives and snorkel trips were cancelled at least through Bottom Time at Banyan Bay. We never got outside of the reef due to this which we were disappointed in. However, we did take the kids parasailing at Fido's which was great. Went bone fishing through Banyan Bay and caught fish. Went on one dive (our first family ocean dive) through Bottom Time and the divemaster was wonderful! Went to Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley. Even had the dive video taped by Belize Underwater Video (PATRICK was great). Despite, the wind which murkeyed up the footage a bit, it still is a keepsake we will treasure. Saw the nurse sharks in fact held them, petted sting rays and also saw yellow sharks. This is a must for everyone to go to. We did a day of fishing inside the reef and then a beach BBQ for lunch by the guides then that afternoon snorkeled Mexico Rocks which also was fun and saw lots of colorful smaller fish. San Pedro is fun. Anyone staying at Banyan Bay we highly recommend renting a golf cart-you will use it alot plus its fun. Restaurant recommendations: SWEET BASIL, Elvis Kitchen, Capricorn (although we got DRENCHED coming home by water taxi which is the only way after dusk to get back). Again the wind plus the drivers added to this unfortunate ending to a fabulous dinner. The owners of Capricorn are great and their restaurant is supurb!!! Fido's for dinner and the band with the kids was fun. Make sure you go to the chicken drop at the Spindrift Hotel on Wed. and then go next door for dinner at the mexican/carribean restaurant Caliente (not sure of the spelling on this one). It was very good! Make sure you take sunscreen. We tanned for eight weeks and still burned with SPF 30 when we were out all day and reapplying. Thats about it. Just wanted to write so others can benefit as we did from reading this message board prior to our trip. Anyone wishing more specific info e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our impression is it is a primitive island in the midst of a tourist explosion. Its fun to just drive your golf cart all around. Tons of building going on and it will be interesting to see San Pedro in the next 5-10 years. I hope they don't allow much more vehicle traffic though. The bikes and the carts are nice, plus the roads are pretty rough. Talk with the locals, they are very friendly and nice. We went to two of the internet cafes to keep in touch with home which also was fun. It is the Carribean I remember as a kid before all the tourism/commercialism came in. Did I forget to say, the Bellikin and Lighthouse Beer is wonderful!!!!
