I have a few questions if anyone can answer them for me. My boyfriend and I are looking to take a vacation, but of course money is a priority. I've been looking into Belize a little. I still don't know much except there are a lot of resorts. What are a few good-moderately priced resorts? Has anyone heard anything on Brianna's Beach House?

Also, we were wondering about the night life. We are both in our middle-twenties and would like this trip to be romantic, yet fun. I was also wondering about safety. Is there anything or place to be weary of?

I would greatly appreciate any info anyone can send me. Also, anyone know of good places to go for airfare. Having problems finding flights out of St. Louis.

Poke around on the message board as there as several recent listings on cheap airfare--Continental and American & Taca are the only one [i think] that fly to Bze.
The airfare may be a deal breaker as it is expensive to get there. In country I found the cost to be comparable to Mexico.
Most people would agree that there is a good mix of quiet romantic gataways and raucous party life.
Check Placencia For romance $ Ambergris Caye for party.
Go to Belize First magazine

Brandi,

We were just there last month and it was the best vacation we ever had! The airfare was the most expensive part, but was still reasonable at $500 from Atlanta. Try calling International Discount Travel at 800-466-7357 and please tell them Gladys referred you. She is the lady who helped me plan my trip and she was wonderful.

There are many affordable places to stay on Ambergris Caye - especially closer to town, and if you don't mind sacrificing a pool. Look at the Sunbreeze, Ramon's, and Rubies. These are all on the beach, but I don't believe Rubies has a pool. It is right in the heart of town, so you may prefer that since you wouldn't have to spend money renting a golf cart to get around.

We found great happy hours at Big Daddy's (5-9pm) and we also enjoyed Fido's courtyard - both are right in town just down from Rubies. We found that dancing and the more "partying" kind of night life didn't get started until late at the dance bars - like around midnight and people partied until 3am.

I think you'll find a good mix of what you're looking for in Ambergris Caye. We went as a group of 3, all in our early 30s and we felt completely at home and comfortable. Don't worry about safety - the locals are very friendly and helpful and I always felt very comfortable, even at night walking down the street alone. Hope you can get good airfare, cause this is a trip well worth taking!

For night life, don't miss the Barefoot Iguana, just south of town on the west side of the road.

Dance the night away....

Fidos is fun for tunes too, dance, dive in water, dance, dive, dance...

The Hideaway is cheap, walking distance to town (very close to Barefoot Iguana - you must learn to Punta dance if you want some island romance!) and it has a pool.
Have a fabulous trip!
