You folks have really bummed me out. Everything I have read up until now made this place sound like a paradise. I was assuming that I could avoid crowds by coming in mid-Sept. but since people are getting hit by cars in Oct. I guess I was mistaken. I live in Austin TX. and the last thing I was expecting from San Pedro was I-35 like conditions. So much for that. I'm glad that I have only purchased my flights into BZE. I may now reconsider and possibly go to Caye Caulker instead.
