This is our first time to your msg board - as if we weren't excited enough about coming down, reading all the scoops you folks so graciously offer, has really got us going! Thanks a lot! LOL! We've got a whole lot more to read up about as far as where to stay - this will be our first visit. We've had a lot of advice, but making a decision is proving to be difficult! My husband and I are more down to earth than "ritzy", and find that the bed and breakfast scene here in the states much more preferrable to the hotel/motel thing. Is there such a thing on AC??? Thanks, and Happy New Year to one and all. -Cat

Beinvenidos Cat!!

Welcome to the board!! So glad to have new folks stopping by to chat for a while about our favorite subject BELIZE! Lots to explore and even more fun to talk to folks that have been nearly everywhere in Belize and AC. So consider yourself formally welcomed aboard.

Don't think you have to worry too much about accomodations that are too ritzy in San Pedro.
If you do a condo or the like it's a pretty Homey
type of place if it provides the fridge,microwave,coffee pot,etc.. I've stayed at Coconuts and Playador a couple of times and a number of places on the mainland and never considered them to be Ritzy. You'll enjoy the laid back nature of the island no matter where
you choose for lodging.
Have fun and relax.......Richard

Can't agree more. You won't spend enough time in the room to make any difference as long as it is clean and has a refrigerator. We stayed and the playador last time and will be at the Banana beach this time. We are from Nebraska and love it there so you will too. We will be there from the 28th through the 4th.

So true about the refrigerator... Something cold to drink and a place to sleep. Then it's outdoors!! laugh

We're new to Belize too (okay, new to the prospect of Belize) and are also looking for accomodations. Just read about a place that looks super reasonable and right on the Beach - Rubies or Rubys? (seen it spelled both ways). I guess I fall into the "I want it to be cheap but nice, too" category, while my boyfriend says let's just find a deal. But I'm wondering, has anyone stayed here, and is it pretty decent? One review said something about thin walls and mattresses. So I'm, like, just wondering.
Also, any thoughts on whether April is a good time to go? There are probably good and bad seasons? I know I need to look this up, and I'm working on it, but you know, and advice is welcome...
it is COLD in Chicago, kids, MT

For a bed & breakfast try looking at Changes In Latitude. Lori & her staff are great. Walking distance to town & most places. Just off the beach behind the Belize Yacht Club but can be picked up from their pier for most tours, snorkeling, diving, etc. Lori can arrange all of the above. Good breakfast and full use of the kitchen. Small, clean rooms, not fancy but comfortable. You don't spend much time in your room except to sleep & shower.

The first picture on the website is not what it looks like, scrool(sp) down to the snorkeling picture with balcony. Lori lives upstairs, Canadian, living all our dreams of living there, just trying to survive. Trust me she will take care of you. Wish I was there NOW! Hopefully soon. Not quite as adventurous as some of you who travel alone. Need to try it sometime as it's getting harder to find people to go with me.
