If one was to choose between Belize and say somewhere in Mexico( Lake Chapala, Chernavaca, etc.), why would Belize be the best choice?

Why are you choosing ? The reason for the choice would certainly affect the answer one would give for the choice.

I choose Belize over and over simply because it is still behind the 8 ball so to speak regarding tourism. It's getting there but it's years away from being a Cancun, etc.

The inhabitants are a major plus also... it's really up to you... nowadays you really have to be a savvy traveler.

Thanks. Can you elaborate more on being a savvy traveler? Also, is it still possible to find long term rentals that are inexpensive and nice?

My first trip to Belize was March of this year. My second trip was in May and my third trip will be in September.

I have been to Cancun, Cozumel, St. Thomas, Aruba, Grenada, and Puerto Rico. I enjoyed those places but never felt as comfortable and met so many people bending over backwards to ensure I had a good time, like I did on Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker.

The place isn't built up like Cancun. You won't find a Carlos and Charlies or a Hard Rock Cafe. What you will find are many, many restaurants who serve up awesome meals at very reasonable prices.

The weather, the snorkeling, the diving, the fishing, the food, the drink, and the people are awesome. I love the dress code; bathing suits, flip flops or barefeet, shorts and a t-shirt. I'm sure there are some uppity folks but I didn't find them.

I choose Belize over and over again this year and will continue from years on end.

If you're looking for a nice place to stay, try Exotic Caye Beach Resort / Playador. You can find more information about them at or send a direct email to, aka Tuki Tuki or Kat. She leases out her condo as well at that resort.

San Pedro has many things to offer its vacationers! mostly a nice quiet place to get away from the "hecktic rat race". Lots of inland tours such as ruins, cave tubing, manatee's,etc. The Island itself has a few local Crocadiles you can actually get close to at feeding time. And I don't mean the "locals" at drinking time! Ha! That might be scarry! Anyways,the weather is nice all year round even when it rains. It's a great family place or just for the two of you! Plenty of nice people to help you with whatever you need. Look at O'Farrell House for a beautiful room or the entire house for a group of ya! Whatever you decide on, you won't be disappointed here on Ambergris Caye!
