booboo Offline
Hello out there! We're headed from Ambergris Caye first week in July. We're staying at the Sunbreeze, has anybody been there? And how did you like? We're booked for five half day reef fishing trips through the Sunbreeze, what can we expect from the fishing? Are there any decent snorkeling spots that can be accessed from the shore, or are boat trips absolutely neccessary?
How about good eats, and of course the best bar.
Does anybody know if any innoculations are reccommended? Thanks all, BooBoo

Hey, thanks Jeff! It sounds like you really know the deal down there. We've done alot of fishing in many other islands. The best being in Hopetown, Abaco, Bahamas. When we were there we fished with hand lines and caught many, many, hugh mutton snapper and grouper. So many, we were using the small snapper for bait to catch sharks.
Do you thing Belize can measure up to that? And do you think there's any chance we can go with handllines?

Sunbreeze is great, I have stayed there 4 times.

Snorkel under the pier/dock at Ramon's just south of Sunbreeze. Enrique at AquaDive there at Sunbreeze is a great snorkeling guide for Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley.

Eats, Mangos, Estel's, Caliente's, Reef Restaurant, Cafe Ole, Fido's and many more great places. Bakery go to La Popular Bakery, and ice cream at Mannelly's.

Bar, I am not a bar bar person, therefore I love Fido's for drinks, at a table.

Fishing is great so my guys tell me.

Also when you do catch that big one head over to Ambergris Delight restaurant a great little belizean restaurant on Middle street and they will even cook your catch for you at no cost you just have to pay for the trimmings

Also you can get 10% off and a free Panty ripper if you use there coupon at www.[#%!].com

Have a great trip

You'll have a GREAT TIME. I agree with CHLOE about the Sunbreeze. We'll be staying there for our 4th time 5/31-6/7. You can't ask for a more convenient location. Just walk across the street after you get off the plane. Staff are always nice too. Don't forget to support the local food vendors that cook the "super dogs" (on the gas grills) with all the trimmings, potato salad, beans, etc. They're located by the park. Never done the fishing but I just read a good report on it [Nothing but the truth] on this board. ENJOY...

booboo, re: innoculations

As with anywhere, tetanus, HepA for sure and getting the HepA&B cocktail wouldn't hurt
