Hi everyone!

Leaving Tuesday at o'dark thirty for 15 days in AC. Been skulking around the house with my mask and snorkel on, annoying the pet fish(and the rest of the family)getting myself all psyched up.I tried to e-mail our hotel (Belizean shores)to have beer and water delivered, but the e-mail keeps bouncing back. Does the distillery have e-mail or can anyone suggest something? Thanks!
Carol

Hi Carol,

I am new to the board, but have been reading for quite some time. I was there last March and we stopped at the grocery store on the way from the airport, just a block away. Picked up all our supplies and went directly to our hotel.

Looks like we will be missing you by a few days. We arrive the 25th of March until the 3rd of April. 21 days and counting! Enjoy your trip!

Just got back from Belizean Shores. They will have a new 1 gallon jug of water in your fridge.

To refill, go to the office and behind the counter is a reverse-osmosis tap where you can refill. It's back in the corner on the side of the small sink.

Say hi to Aimee, Premo, Elvis et al for me.

Oops- Can't forget. Say hi to Hatcher as well.

Also suggest R-E-L-A-X.

BTW You can buy a fresh gallon at the office for 2 USD. May not hurt to have a spare. Also, the office doesn't open until 0800, as well the "Caye-Mart" down the beach, so if you're running low get it the night before. Nothing like cottonmouth at dawn.

Thanks. kcjd....any problems getting to SP and back at night? Water shuttle? Taxi? How did you like the BS? (Ha, I just realized how that looks!) Don't mind me, I'm getting a bit goofy anticipating my release...... cool

CPN, Sorry too hear you are having problems. Mine will be in the fridge and waiting and I went all the way and put one case in both rented Villas! This is such a good Idea as we should be arriving in San Pedro at about 3pm, we can have a cold one in hand at 3:05-3:10

I will say hello to all for you. Thanks for the water tips. I will try to e-mail the other hotel to see if we can get a couple cases of beer delivered. Priorities, you know?

Double E I may just be stopping by your villa on the way to ours, as I am sure I will need a cold one by then and will probably be down a quart....

CPN,

Absolutely LOVED Belizean Shores. laugh laugh laugh

Getting in to town is somewhat problematic...
The water taxi runs on the hour, both ways at night. During the day it runs IN on the even hours, and from town on the odd hours. You can get them to take you out of downtown on an off hour during the day if there are enough of you going to the same place, just ask. Cost is $5.00USD one way. So $20.00USD per couple round trip will almost justify cart rental. Be sure and check with Hatcher or the front desk, as they make trips and will haul you in for free.

Anyway- At night, the water taxi is a little scary as they don't use running lights (it was a new moon when we were there, I could barely see Orion there were so many stars).

We rented a golf cart and really didnít have too much trouble. I had driven the road a couple of times by the time it was dark so I was somewhat familiar. Also, if you grew up driving gravel roads, like I did, it's almost easier as you can see the spots to avoid since the headlights hit the road at an oblique angle. Ewwwww I just used oblique in a sentence.

If you do get a cart, run it around awhile before attempting the drive at night. Also, we had no rain so the road was in good? shape.

Later-KCJD
