We are coming to Belize this week and just started to pack our luggage. There is always that one little thing that we didn't know we were going to need.

So what is that one little thing that no one remembers to bring to AC?

From my personal experience, it wasn't what I forgot as much as what I brought that I didn't need. Forget the hairdryer, makeup and any tight or close-fitting underwear! Have a wonderful time!

Some times there, some times h...
Binoculars, and nice big insulated drinking cups. We ALWAYS forget the cups.

If you're a coffee drinker and the room has a maker, take those Maxwell House coffee/filter packs. VERY helpful.

DON'T take insulated "huggies", the Belikin bottle is smaller than US styles, and it will just flop around and irritate you. Buy one of those cute little zippered huggies in SP that are made specifically for the Belikin bottle. Couple bucks US, but a true momento of AC.

Extra batteries for your camera, perhaps a
small but bright flash light, a sharp knife
to cut fruit, etc., snacks for your room
and late night munchies! Enjoy and visit

If you plan on snorkeling....bring those underwater disposable cameras with you...they are cheaper in the states.

You will probably stay in a swimsuit and shorts most of the time.....a few outfits for going out to dinner and the the rest of your suitcase for bringing stuff home! [Linked Image]

Sunscreen and aloe.....sunglasses a must.

And of course...your desire to party...things are full swing again.

Barefoot Iguanas is open again...Yea!

This is the packing list I put in my new Guide to Mainland Belize. It's really for those visiting the mainland rather than just San Pedro, but a few items may be of interest.

What to Pack and Bring
Belize is a very casual country. You don’t need evening clothes or even a coat and tie or other U.S.-style business dress. You’ll live in tee-shirts, shorts, loose-fitting slacks and shirts. A really dressy occasion for men might require a guayaberra or collared shirt and long pants; for women a simple skirt or dress.

Leave all your fancy jewelry and Rolex watches at home. They will impress only thieves. Also leave your rain gear at home. It probably will rain, but raincoats just make you sweat.
Here are ideas for your packing list:

• Light-weight cotton clothes or quick-drying cotton/synthetic blends such as those sold by Ex Officio (tel. 800-644-7303, and other travel stores.
• Comfortable walking shoes. Consider light boots for hiking and sandals for the beach.
• Extra swimsuits and tee-shirts.
• Maps, guidebooks and your favorite reading material. If available in Belize, these may cost more than back home and may be out of date.
• Cap or hat — be sure it’s one that won’t blow off in windy conditions on the water. You can’t beat a Tilley Endurables hat (tel. 800-363-8737,
• Sunglasses — the darker the better.
• Small flashlight with extra batteries, baggies in various sizes, a roll of duct tape, a large garbage bag, pen and writing pad, and Swiss Army-style knife — with these you can go anywhere and do anything.
• Your favorite snacks — many American brands are available in Belize, but they are expensive.
• Extra film, camera battery or the digital equivalent — you’ll shoot many more photos in Belize than you think you will. Film is readily available in Belize, but it’s expensive.
• Health kit consisting of your prescription medicines and a copy of your eyeglass prescription, plus aspirin, insect spray with 30% DEET, sunscreen (more than you think you’ll need), Pepto-Bismol or other tummy medicine, bandages, sun-burn lotion, toilet tissue, moist wipes, seasick pills and other over-the-counter medicines.

• Battery-operated radio if coming during tropical storm/hurricane season (June-November).
• Snorkel mask — you can rent snorkel and dive gear in Belize, but rental masks often don’t fit well.
• Fishing gear.
• Head lamp if you are going caving or river cave tubing.
• Cotton sweater or light jacket may be needed in the winter, especially on the water or in the higher elevations of the Mountain Pine Ridge.
• Frisbees and baseball-style caps — they make good small gifts. For gifts, some people also bring fishing lures and tee-shirts or other clothing items with U.S. sports insignia.
