Just wanted to post a quick note to thank everyone on this site for their help in planning our recent trip. Most of you do not know us but we're John and Julie from Indiana. We talked with CaptJeff and hooked up with Bicho for two days of fishing.
The weather was great all week with temps in the 80's and lots of sun. We stayed at the Sunbreeze hotel and really liked it. I can't imagine a more convenient location, within walking distance to almost everything and right across the street from the airport. We ate at Elvi's, Stain Glass Pub, The Sunbreeze Restaurant(I forget the name). We liked Elvi's the best. Try the Maya Chicken, it's baked in a banana leaf and real good.
We fished two days with Bicho. Both days were windy and kinda rough outside the reef. We did real well with the fishing. The first day we went to Rocky Point and caught a lot of reef fish. Bicho and Bicho Jr. did a great job of preparing lunch while we relaxed in the shade. The second day we went over to Caye Cauker and trolled outside the reef. Julie got a little green in the face but got over it. I caught a 20 lb grouper and a lot of big barracuda. The pictures will be sent to captjeff for posting on fishingsanpedro.com as soon as I get my computer photo software working again. For lunch we stopped on Caye Cauker and ate at a small dockside restaurant, good food and cheap. The water was a bit rough for snorkeling so we didn't give that a try.
Later in the week we went to the mainland and drove to the western part of Belize. For those who have not tried the interior, it is worth the effort. Be sure to stop at the Belize Zoo. What a value for a few bucks! We found the Cayo district to be friendly and beautiful. The Maya ruins are unbelievable.
I just wanted to thank a few people who made out trip more enjoyable.
Bicho and Bicho Jr. - Great guys, friendly and professional. I will look forward to my next trip with them.
CaptJeff - Called me back and answered every question I had. Thanks for the help and the advice. I look forward to meeting up sometime in Belize.
Patrick from PlayaBlanca resort. Thanks for the great conversation on the play ride over to Ambergris. Your real estate advice was well taken.
Elvi's - Great Maya chicken!
Ramon's - Good breakfast under the palms!
Sunbreeze Hotel - You guys ought to see this place now that the renovations are complete! A first class hotel with Florida quality. We really liked the cable TV with the early darkness in Dec.
Look for our pictures soon at fishingsanpedro.com I'll be the grinning geek standing by Bicho while he holds the big grouper!
