Hey, I've been following the message board for about a week now and the tips have been great. My boyfriend and I are leaving for AC on Wednesday and staying at the Seven Seas for a week. What are some of the must-do spots in town? We are planning on taking the overnight dive trip to Blue Hole and definitely a day trip to the ruins. Mainly I just wanted to hear your suggestions for restaurants and dive outfitters, and anything about our hotel. Also, has anyone encountered safety issues? I hear Belize City isn't a place to be wandering aroung, but what about AC? I'd appreciate any comments...thanks!

We like breakfast at Estelles, lunch at Micky's on Wed. (Burrito special) Papi's for dinner for sure! The street vendors by the park are great. Capricorn and Victoria House for a really special dinner.
As for dive operators, we like Barefoot Water Sports. Great boats, staff, and they do an overnite Blue Hole trip. Have fun and Dive Safe!

You really cannot go wrong with the restaurants on AC, some are just a little pricier than others. But you absolutely cannot miss Estel's by the Sea for breakfast! Nothing like starting off a day with a great breakfast and your toes in the sand! If you love Mexican cuisine, definitely check out Caliente. Awesome food, atmosphere and margaritas! Lastly, Jambel Jerk Pit is great if you can take the heat (try to get a seat on the roof).
Have a great trip!

Barefoot Watersports is great! They have a great staff who happen to be very nice people. Adolpho and Carlos are the greatest divemasters and you can't go wrong! The rest of the staff is exceptional. Have a great trip.
