Thanks Becky_bound_for_Belize I know unfortunate things can happen everywhere, although I leave in USA, I am from Santo Domingo, D.R. and I wouldn't say it is the safest place in the Caribbean either, if I was getting worry is just because we are just getting over the bad experience we had in Brazil which could have been really a lot worse.
Thank you for your reply, I feel better now. I guess I am still a little traumatized by Brazil and after reading the stories in this page I went into panic.

Thanks are everywhere, and you know all the answers as well. Do you happen to work for Belize Department of Turism by any chance, jajaja?

Thank you both!
