Hi. Let me just start by saying I hope I don't offend anybody, and I ask these questions as not to annoy the locals/other visitors when we arrive...and also, we're not some crazy weirdos or loud annoying americans...we're just a young couple who likes to feel liberated and have fun once and a while...

1. what's the attitude towards nudity on beaches near San Pedro? I'm staying at the Bannana Beach Hotel, and although I'm sure it'd be inappropriate to go skinnydipping in the middle of the day, what about a 4am dip? Would it be ok on a more isolated beach? Perhaps if we drife a golf cart to a secluded area to go for a dip? Any recommendations on such an area? Or are there any nude beaches?

2. we're no druggies, but would like to smoke a few splifs in the evenings after we finish the days activities (rather than drink alcohol)...our plan is to buy a small bag upon our arrival in BC, and take it to the jungle place we're staying at for evening smokes. We'd finish that there, then buy a bit more in SP when we arrive a few days later...
questions... how is this done in Belize? From what I gather, it's generally accepted to have less than a couple grams... so when a guy comes up to me and says ganja, should I just ask him for 2 grams of "Belize Breeze"? And what would that cost, generally? Any recommendations on streets/places to go to for quality smoke in BC and SP? (I'd much rather just buy a little bit, so one puff can get us where we want to be...)

3. What are the best nightspots in SP? The Sat nite we'll be there (Aug 21) we'd like to do some good dancing. Sun and mon nite, we'd like to go to some places with good live music or chill/comfortable places to relax and hang out. What's hopping on a sun or mon nite?

4. What's the best way to avoid having my golf cart stolen when in SP? I live in NYC and always lock down my bike with a "Kryptonite" (U-bar)lock. Should I bring that? Or is there insurance on the carts, or a good way to lock them when roaming around the island?

5. Is the bus from BC to Belmopan and points south (Dangrina) safe (relitively spreaking)? For me and my fiancee?

Thanks...that's it...any help yould be appreciated...I'm really looking forward to this trip///

I second that, think Negril, not Belize.

Maybe Hattieville.

Choochoo is referring to Belize's all expenses included resort known as their prison. Not somewhere anyone would want to be, but if you pursue your vacation desires - that's maybe where you will end up.

Jamaica is much more suited to offer you what you are looking for.

I can't belive how uppity some of you boarders are. Don't tell me none of you smoke pot. We enjoyed some with our Belikins while in SP, if you want it you can find it. No AC is not Jamacia, espcially when it comes to the nudity part, locals are very nice and trustworthy, you don't get hassled all the time, which is great. But you can find the all night parties too if that's what your into.

I can respond to question 1 (I'm at work...)

Nudity is "not done" in Ambergris Caye - on the outer atolls - yes (or maybe if you can find a private spot north of the cut on AC), but otherwise, definitely frowned upon. There was a completely flat-chested, but gorgeous Italian woman who did go topless the week we were at Banana Beach - and most American guests (except for me) were pretty freaked out. She did ask the staff at Banana Beach if it was OK before going topless.

Otherwise, I would say AC seemingly caters to a conservative hard-drinking crowd, and you can find whatever you are looking for - but don't expect NYC quality!

Seems pretty harmless to me. Everyone appears to be taking a "not in my back yard" stance on this but, WHOOPS, most of the replys appear to be from the states so its not really their backyard at all. The Belizian authorities have stated publicly that they really don't care about a few grams either way.
As far as the nude swimming, he clearly stated that he doesn't plan on doing it in downtown SP so why should anyone care.

I wonder if the Belezians that are working hard to promote their busineses through this board appreciate a bunch of foreigners telling people to go elswhere with their dollars because they, "foreigners," don't agree with their view of how to behave in Belize.

FYI - other than in Negril, female toplessness and nudity is completely taboo in Jamaica so not sure where the above open-minded folks get their info. Both former British colonies and all that....

there has definitely been skinny dipping in hotel pools at 3am or so. Don't know about ganga/mota/weed.
