You folks have really bummed me out. Everything I have read up until now made this place sound like a paradise. I was assuming that I could avoid crowds by coming in mid-Sept. but since people are getting hit by cars in Oct. I guess I was mistaken. I live in Austin TX. and the last thing I was expecting from San Pedro was I-35 like conditions. So much for that. I'm glad that I have only purchased my flights into BZE. I may now reconsider and possibly go to Caye Caulker instead.

Since I have never been to AC, but will be there in November, is the traffic only bad in the main part of town? We are staying about a mile south of town. Is it a problem out near Banana Beach and those areas?

pescador....no need to be down or afraid about San Pedro. When we talk about traffic here...it isn't in comparison to even a small town in the states. As long as you look where your going and stay to the sides of the road....you should be quite safe. [Linked Image]
All of Belize is more populated than it used to be....even Caye Caulker. I think the comparison comes from those of us that knew it when it truly was a sleepy little village. Even 5 yrs. ago...there was much less traffic. But with progress and construction.....comes traffic. Please don't think of it as an interstate though....that will take another 20 yrs. [Linked Image]


lmarquis.....yes..it is mostly the town proper that is congested. Out in that area, there is little traffic...and lots of quiet!

So is The Palms far enough from town to avoid the sounds and smells of traffic.

Pescador;

Not to worry, even Eden had that little trouble with the apple thing. "Paradise" is still in pretty good shape.

Sandshaker has hit it...it used to be a sleepy little burg, but now it's growing up. The Town Board needs to get the pickups and dump trucks under control, but they can't get the Traffic Control officers to, in most cases, ticket their own relatives.

This is a real unusual situation. Even the locals were talking about the driving when we there.

We're all just a little spoiled. If you want to get me really going let's talk about the commercial barges on the reef side of the island. (No..let's not.)

Sandshaker-Those long pieces of re-rod sticking out of the third floor of the building next door to you...are those new communications devices for Harmouch? Surely you don't think their going to throw up that forbidden fourth floor.

LOL....good grief ......who knows!
I'm just waiting anyday for one of them to get tangeled in all the electrical lines that hang on the balconies of the street side as decorations. That outta light things up! Very poor planning if you ask me...LOL
who would want a room with a transformer as your view????
I just wish they would hurry up and get the darn thing built!!!....GRRRRR....LOL

Good point about the barges....we have run into many problems trying to get our construction supplies up to Basil Jones. Right now, this is the only way to go. Fortunately the barge moves well within the reef but can only take less than full loads because the water gets very shallow up in that area and they end up breaking a prop.
I had heard rumour that they were thinking about dredging out the lagoon side a bit so the barge could move freely on the back side of the island. This would be better...as it would keep this type of traffic away from the reef side of the island. I haven't heard any more concerning this rumour though.
For right now.....we don't have much of a choice I'm afraid. [Linked Image]

The dump trucks, pick-ups and taxi's aren't so bad, ya can hear them before they hit ya. I was walking, innocently, over in San Pedrito, when a young lady ran me over on her bicyle from behind. And she wasn't even blonde, Little Miss Sifting Sands.

Chloe: The only roller bladder I ever saw was Marty skating into town on the beach. He seemed ta be having problems getting out of low gear.
