I am thrilled to say we are returning to San Pedro on September 16 for a week. We'll be at the Belizean Reef. Anyone else traveling then?

Since this is the height of hurricane season, I'm wondering about trip insurance. Normally, we don't bother, but I'm wondering if we should make an exception. Anyone have any opinions?

Thanks in advance.

We will be there from Sept 2nd - 13th so we'll miss you by a couple of days.

As for travel insurance ... I would recommend it if you have any reservations that something might deter your travels. We had to cancel a trip to Costa Rica this year because my wife broke her foot before the trip. Luckily she purchased travel insurance and we received a full refund.

Well worth the money for that peace of mind. We even purchased it for our trip to AC in Sept.

HAVE FUN!!! laugh

Jean, Where are you from in Iowa? I grew up in Iowa and went to Un. of Iowa. Always curious about the Iowans in Belize.

I live in North Liberty, which is essentially a suburb of Iowa City. I attended the University of Iowa myself, actually work there now (as a nurse). I grew up in Belle Plaine, husband is from Holstein originally.

Son of a son, any recommendations for insurance companies to purchase travel insurance? Thanks.

Jean, I know where North Libery and Holstein are. I lived in a small town in the northwestern part of the state, Swea City, which you have probably never heard of. It is in the area near Lake Okaboji and Spirit Lake. Am a retired nurse. Have great memories of growing up in Iowa. Best , LoveyP.s. Live just so. of Victoria House. It you frequent B.C.'s will probably run into you.

I purchased mine online at:


They were less expensive and offered pretty much the same deal as some of the others.

We purchased ours online through "Travelguard". They're pretty reasonable on there price, I think around $75.00!

Hi Jean,

Are you the same Jean who gave me about Makanda on the Fodors board?

Mona Lisa, Yep, that's me on the Fodor's board. We have found Ambergris Caye to be much more relaxing than Costa Rica, different type of vacation. Depends on what you're looking for, I guess. We always seem to be on the move in Costa Rica. In Belize, we have yet to make a day trip to the main land. One of these times....
