Hi, My wife Rose & I will be coming on Feb 28th through Mar 8th. Mar 1st is our 24th anniversary.I,m sure some of you will have some great ideas of how to celebrate this day with someone very special to me. Maybe I could suprise her with something. Thanks, Jack

Buy her a fabulous piece of jade jewelry (ring, necklace.....) from the Jade Museum/gift shop - "Ambergris Jade". Beautiful and reflecting the spirit of the Mayas and Belize.

Dinner in one of the very special fine-dining places on the island -
Victoria House
Mambo (Mata Chica)
Rendezvous House
Caribe Island Resort

AND/OR hire a boat to take you up to Robles Point for a champagne picnic, swim and snorkel.

OR - what the heck, buy her a house on the beach.

Hope those suggestions help.

We, too, will be in AC for our anniversary, albeit, only our 5th. I love the beach house suggestion tho as a gift. I think I'll pass these suggestions on to my hubby! laugh BTW, congrats on 24 years!

How about the Pier dinning under the stars at Portofino? http://portofinobelize.com/lacuisine.html Pedro 1 suggested this in another post a few weeks ago and I think we might do this with our friends for their 20th anniversary in August. Sounds fabulous. cool mobunny

Thanks, mobunny,scuba & Diane I knew I would get replys from the ladies, as most guys would probably say "Take her fishing for the day!!"

Diane, I'll take your suggestion for some jade to give her at dinner.

mobunny, I pulled up Portofino & it looks like just the spot I was looking for. I plan on just telling her to get dressed & get on the water taxi
& end up there. I,m going to make reservations now

scubalover, I,m with you on getting a beach house!!!!

Diane,do I sense that you suggested that because of you being in real estate!!!! HA,HA

My brother in-law work at Aqua Marina Suites. His name is Ed Ward. Thats where were staying Feb28-Mar8

Thanks Girls, Jack

Sounds like a wonderful celebration !
You are absolutely right - I'm in real estate - so yes, that was a little bit of a joke - "except" that I must honestly tell you, one of the best things that ever happened in my life was and still is, having a beach home on Ambergris Caye.

there are some wonderful muscians on the island. See if you could hire them to come by your room's patio, porch or balcony, and have her serenaded island style!!!! The private little island for a pic-nic and champagne sound wonderful..... In addition to jade, San Pedro has a local jeweler that makes fabulous creations with conch pearls. They are rare to some degree, and the most fabulous colors. My husband had a pendant made for me in San Pedro, and I get more compliments on it than any other piece of jewelry I own. We picked the design and he had it made in two days. Very unique.

To all you lovely ladies who have helped me on this anniversary question.

Diane, You have no idea how much Rose & I would love to live there. We Have been to many Islands and always wonder why we never did it.Maybe I'll look you up when I,m there. My brother in-law works at Aqua Marina where we are staying.

mobunny, I took your advise & looked up Portofino & was sold on that idea & have already booked dinner on the pier under the stars. That place is fantastic. Is it the premier place on the Island?

Debbie, thanks I'll look into the conch pearl items. I think Rose would love it as well as jade.Does that mean I have to buy both????

Wonderwoman,thanks for your info on the conch also
Do you work at the Rendezvous? Do you have to take a water taxi to get there? And your called Wonderwoman because.........

Thanks all
