1/2 mile out of town(close enough to walk to AND from), beachfront, fridge at the very least (not going to be coooking five course dinners). I want to spend as little as possible and as much as I have to - I can get a room at Banana Beach Resort for around $2000 with air through a tour company here in the States. Air is around $950 - so if I can stay somewhere for less than a grand great. We usually go to all inclusives, so this is a change for us to go it alone. The idea of Belize came out of saving money.
