KRich, Really suggest coming with Traverlers Checks, they are easily cashed almost every where. Denny is right about the surcharge on the credit cards, I don't feel the need to give the credit card companies anymore of my money than is absolutely necessary. Of course cash is always good too. You can use US $'s or exchange to BZ$'s if you want to use local currency. There are a few ATM machines but not many. Kat
While we're talkin bout money, how much cash do ya think would be reasonable for 2 people for a week, not including hotel and air. We want to eat good, drink better, take some trips, go fishin an snorklin, by some art and woodcarvings, generally do anything and everything we want for 8 days. What do you folks usually spend in a week, not being skimpy?
I agree with Scooter. I travel alone and usually end up spending $100.00 a day on average. Now, you can get off cheaper if you are able to cook in your rooms and you buy cases (notice how I say cases) of Belikin from the store, but hey, you're on vacation, so why not splurge. For two people, wanting to splurge, $150.00 is probably a fair dollar amount. Some days you may not spend it.
crackerlarry: I have plenty of time on my hands this morning, so I put this together for you. I am sure others will have their views, and it would be interesting to hear those, but this is my best estimate based on your criteria.
Breakfast/$10each/7days $140 Lunch/$15each/7days 210 Dinner(includes wine)$50each/day 700 Lamani tour/$135each 270 Manatee tour/$90each 180 Snorkeling 1/2 day/$25each 50 Fishind full day/$250 for 2 250 Drinks/$30/person/7days 420 Shopping/$100/person for 7 days 200
TOTAL $2420 divided by 7 equals 345/day
Add $100 per day to that if you are going to buy Pedro drinks. :p
