Good Point Elbert, I say leave it the way it is. If it were easy then everyone would do it.
Layovers/boat transfers - 2 hours of your life
Being on San Pedro and soaking it all in - Priceless!



But why eat my vegetables I already know that I am short!

I don't think anyone is proposing jets landing on AC... I'd just want a direct flight from Cancun to AC...

The lighted airstrip is a lifesaver when the medevac chopper comes to get someone in distress.

Why would one want International flights to San Pedro? That is just nutty. It would be fine for me to fly from Belize City to Cancun. I would end up doing all my shopping that way and the Belize economy could suffer but I don't buy that much. Sam's Club is a big draw.

...so family members with limited physical mobility will have minimal excuses to not visit.

There are many direct flights to Cancun and a two-hopper is much easier than a 3 or 4 hopper and the shorter flights are easier on elderly bodies.

deadserious -- I think you have been very reasonable in your rationale and the benefits you mention are indeed valid. I just think most feel the cons outweigh the pros.

Cancun may as well be Miami for all the traffic that runs through it. I hear ya when you say "just Cancun," but you may as well be saying New York, Houston, or Miami as far as the impact it would have on the island.


I will have a Belikin -- put it on klcman's tab.

It would certainly change the island from what it is now, regardless. I prefer it stay the way it is.
