I am coming to San Pedro for 2-3 months, maybe longer. Can I receive General Delivery mail in San Pedro at the Post Office? If so, do I need to contact the San Pedro Post Office ahead of time and do they have an email address?

I appreciate any help you can provide...I read the message board all the time and get a lot of good information from it.

Yes you can receive mail at
"General Delivery, San Pedro Town, Belize"
Don't add anything else!
You won't need to contact the Post Office in advance.

I have a post office question myself.

I wanted to send my friend in Belize some things, but I'm unsure of whether the items go to the post office, and then await pickup? or if they are actually brought to their homes?

They are kept at the post office. The friend will have to pay for the items when they arrive.

letter and letter size env. there is no fee, my mom sent me a few dog colars and put them in a letter size env. no fees and it was thick.

We pay a percentage of the price you put the package value is to claim our packages.

Also, add Ambergris Caye after SP and Central America after BZ to the above address, my facewash never made it here and I just called the states today. They forgot to put Central America on it and Amergris Caye. All other packages and letters arrive to me in a timely manner.

The Postmaster, Angel, has specifically asked that you NOT put AC or CA or any other info on the mail.

Just curious – but why did Angel ask that these specifiers not be put on the address? I have been having everyone carefully fill out all the info and everything has come through.

You should discuss this with Angel. Many times the "CA" marking has resulted in a lengthy detour to California. I've had mail arrive via Columbia.

talked to Angel late today. He said you should put Central America on the envelopes as I mentioned above. He said do not put CA but do put Central America.

Jesse is correct, CA is thought of as California by mail in the states. As far as AC if you put it put the whole word he said as I mentioned above too.
