There are many pros and cons on this potential avenue. The bottom line IS the bottom line. It's simply all about money.
Let me ask... how many people who go on a cruise to a destination, more often than not return to that destination via airlines and stay at some of the places they *briefly* visited on the cruise.
Granted the people of Belize that will make out, in the beginning, will be the people on the mainland. The ratio of visitors waiting around for a flight or boat to AC will be small. This is where the people of AC need to put on their thinking caps... and draw those people to the island. It CAN be done, but it doesn't JUST happen by itself.
