I am so pumped! Got tickets to Jerry Jeff Walker Belize Camp (Part two) this January. Have been to Belize many times but never to Ambergris. Any recommendation on how or where to get the best deal for a couple of scuba dives for me and my darling?

Sorry can't help you with the dive info., but did want to share your joy about JJ Walker (part 2)!!! Hubby & I will be there as well. Were lucky enough to see him in St. Louis about 2 wks. ago, and he sounded and looked great! Put on an almost 3 hour show! Hmmmm.....what to do until Jan. 26?
We are staying at Blue Tang Inn, how 'bout you all?

Me and my ole hen are doing the budget rooms and staying at Rubies, Folks there were nice enough to offer us a room by the sea at a reasonable rate.

After the Belize Camp week, got my old cabin in Riversdale that makes for a dang fine fishing spot!

check out Aqua Dives for diving rates.

Hi, trina I would suggest the Orange Walk area. There is a lot to offer there. In particular there is the Lamanai Outpost lodge that offers exactly what you're looking for. You can contact me if you need more info at [email protected]

by far ... the dive shop with the best reputation is Amigos Del Mar. I know this because I have been referring people there for years and have never had a complaint.
If you want a cheap deal you will end up with what you pay for.

If you are only going to have a couple of dives, the prices are pretty constant. If you book a block of dives or the more dives you make, the better the price per dive, is how it generally works. I too recommend Amigos, but there are others that are good also. Most all of the operations will pick you up at your dock, no matter which place you stay. When you first arrive, go around to a few of the shops that you think you are interested in. Check out their facilites, get a look at their gear and boats, etc., have a chat. Then decide.

By the way, I thought the JJW was always around Jan 7-9?

A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?
