Can only speak for myself but Barb got us a great price last Feb from Minn, cheaper than anything we could have done ourselves. She can help w/anything else too, especially if you're thinking of anything on the mainland. Check our her site - she's great!!

I work for a Central America tour operator & have a contract with AA, my rate out of IAH is $383 with tax. Granted it's through MIA but it's a great fare. Most of the time my fare is hundreds better than the airline, but there are occasions when they throw a sale fare that is better. You just never know.

I've always booked direct through the airlines, (Continental) and three years in a row, have generally gotten around $620 RT from Seattle to Belize City per person. I'm not sure how that stacks up against other methods. Yeah, you gotta also factor in your fare from Belize Intl Aiport to wherever else you wanna, to Placnecia, San Pedro,whatever.
