And it's gotta be CASH. No traveller's checks or credit cards. There was a youngish guy begging in the airport for money when we were there, trying to rustle up enough money to leave!!! I THINK the money is used for ecological projects, or at least that's what they say. If that is IN FACT where the money goes, I am all for it. As long as it's not going into some "fat cats" pocket, I'm okay with it, in general. Belize is a unique, lovely place, and I hope it stays that way.
