Thanks for your insights Hunter. Should I return to Belize, this place is #1 on my list! I think my next vacation, finacial gods willing, will be to St. Petersburg, Russia. But I alternate between Europe and Carib every 6 months, so I could be looking at Placencia in the summer of '04. Though my wife is likely going to push for the South Pacific. The website you sent me could go a long way in helping me win my cause!
