I had a problem this year which I would like a solution. I bought some real reasonable ($488) round-trip tickets from a wholesaler on Continental Airlines. They could only issue a round trip ticket for the maximum 4 months. At the last moment, a friend from St Louis, decided to come to San Pedro arriving 2 days prior to my departure date. I was able to extend one week, medically, but was told that if I wanted to stay longer, I'd hafta eat my return ticket and I'd be able to buy a one way for $600. My question is where can a person buy reasonable tickets which can be extended to or for a period of 6 months. Thanks in advance for your consideration.

Airline tickets vary a lot in their return requirements. Some are good only for short periods, others for a year. Basically in this deregulated environment it's up to to the airline to decide the return the requirement for any given fare. In general, the cheaper the price the more restrictions including often a fairly narrow window for use, whereas full fare tickets are essentially without restriction and can be exchanged or refunded, making them effectively good forever (or as long as the airline is in business.)

Here are some sources of cheap tickets to Belize, but again you'll have compare restrictions and validity dates.

Hi Lan: Thanks for the info. I'll write them down for reference. Thanks for all your help. PS. I think one of those Belize Kits would be good for my situation. I suppose I can order one through Belize First? Take care: Bill

FYI The links don't work because there is the little 'extra' , at the end of of three of them. I find that most times when people say they can't access a link, that is the problem.. look closely at the link and see if there might be extra characters.. NO I don't mean the characters that love Belize.. I'm referring to the the alpha or numeric ones in the link...
For convenience, here are the true links (hopefully)...

THX for the info /links Lan. The cheaper the flights, the MORE OFTEN we can visit... Cheers Gail

Sorry, I see that I have commas at the end of some of the URLs -- delete those and they should work.
