Anyone know the rule on bringing a few bottles our favorite wine & vodka to AC. After all, what's a "break in the action" if you can't bring a few "OLD" friends? Could they be shipped ahead ? via Fed X Looking to be legal
I could not find any postings on the topic Thanks for any directions. Planning on sand between the toes 9/11

We brought two large bottles of our favs with us, with no problem. After arriving though, realized it wasnt' necessary. There is duty free liquor by the score at the airport. There are a couple of places to buy liquor in San Pedro as well. Since we had our own, I didn't look at the selection, but at a glace it looked pretty good. Debbie

Bring what you want. The limitations are not strictly imposed on the tourists, unless you have a suitcase full of Absolute, and wine bottles sticking out of your pockets. Better yet bring several bottles of Belevedere or Chopin (your choice), and leave one buried under the rock at the east end of the concrete wall immediately south of the barge landing (ask anyone for directions). I will be eternally grateful, and your thoughtful generosity will bless your trip daily throughout your stay.
In all seriousness, we bring in a fair amount and it's never been a problem. Oh for the Good Ol' Days of the duty free shop.
Have a great time.
Debbie::The duty free store is now only for those LEAVING the country. I checked the prices last time through, and they weren't that good at all.

The sand is pretty loose there. If you decide to use the south side of the wall you can trust the Guatemalan caretaker if you need to borrow a shovel. He does not believe in alcohol. I know that for a fact.
If your consumption while there exceeds your supply, you can purchase distilled spirits at the Island Grocery among other places. Brand names are VERY high. The Belizian vodkas are generally pretty bad...HOWEVER..if you really need to reload and even bad sounds good, try the Lerska (about $11.00BZ a liter). The Czar is cheaper and not too bad once you've run it through a coffee filter to get the critters out. (I'm serious). You'll love the faux Russian look to the bottles.
DO NOT DRINK THE BELIZIAN GIN! No need to explain just DO NOT DO IT!

No, not now... After Mitch messed it up I took it over, rebuilt it and operated it for about 9 months until the hotel took it back over.I hired Margie and Ada who are both still there mixing the best drinks on the island. It's a great beach bar! Very friendly!
