Does anyone have a recommendation for a taxi driver willing to take a group on a day-long shopping trip in Belize City? I've seen posts that mention a female driver who knows many places to go, but I've never seen a name or contact information. Also, do shops in Belize City arrange to have large items shipped to Ambergris Caye or is that a separate arrangement I need to make ahead of time? Thanks for any help!

Last summer, we used a guy named Fido Perdomo, ph 623-4381, for shopping in BC. He met us in a full-sized van that had room for people/packages and drove us around for the afternoon. No guarantees if he's still around, but others have used him in the past, too. We just had small packages, so I don't know about shipping. PM me if you want more info.

Thanks for taxi driver suggestions! I'm still hoping someone has information on getting the larger items back to Ambergris Caye (i.e., mattresses, etc.)!!

Those will have to come over on the barge. Crystal Shipping or Caribbean Queen. If you end up buying them in Belize City, the store will get them on the barge for you.
