bywarren's comments are spot on -- those here who have more than a few month's perspective will remember all the many developments on Ambergris Caye and elsewhere that have been announced (often by government ministers at big ceremonies) over the years -- the casinos, golf courses, airstrips, convention centres, timeshare projects, etc. -- most of which, like MacArthur's old soldiers, just faded away in the salt air.

And I also agree that Belize City is trouble waiting to happen for the cruise ship lines. I don't think they know what they're getting into.
