I don't want to sound stupid. So how DO I
pronounce Ambergris Caye?
Also, what language is spoken here? Will I
get by with my minor Spanish and English?
This trip was made with 1 week advance notice.
Talk about spur of the moment...

"Am-BURR-jis Key".
English is fine; Spanish is helpful.
Have a great trip!
