Ok.....I did a search and couldnt get the info. Does anyone know what a sim card cost in San Pedro? I can order one from Telestial before I leave the states. The cost is $59US with $5US air time. It is a digicel card. Is it the same there?..or is it cheaper?

I wouldn't feel confident with one bought outside Belize that it would work here, quite apart from the cost.

I bought one in Belize City in Jan. and it cost $35bz with $10bz of air time. Might be a little more in SP. They are readily available in BC,CC and SP so don't buy in the states you don't know whether they'll work in Belize. Also make sure your phone is unlocked. If not that can also be done in Belize for about $10bz.

for digicell sim cards here at c's cost us $50 bzd - never heard of getting talk time already on it sounds like a good dead.

($50 is also what we paid to get our supposedly unlocked phone unlocked that we got on ebay way back)

San Pedro based Belize Blog since 2007 - great travel resources & discounts

We also bought our Belize "Digicell" sim card from telestial and it worked just fine. It was nice to already have minutes to use when we landed.

And, yes, Digicell is what you need.
