I'm assuming that most of the dive shops take plastic. If I'm wrong please correct me, because I'm planning on a lot of my trip being charged.

No problem!
I would actually call the cards you be using so they are aware that you are going to CA. Otherwise you could have some hang ups...... with those computers, calling...
Pretty much same as other trips elsewhere. NO PROBLEM!
Sincerely,
Hope

To try to gain face in this group (after bad mouthing AC about my trip report, mostly diving) I will offer what I found out there (first time there), seems all of the folks who go there don't know this, other wise they would tell you. If you go to the bank and exchange your US travels checks in for their money they will give you two Belize for one US, BUT, with some small fees for the transaction and some bull paper work, and depending on the time of day a long wait in line or waiting for the bank to open as they are taking a siesta. But if you want to get a few extra bucks more, you can go across the street from one of the banks to the Western Union Office and get a slighty better exchange rate of $2.06 Belize to $1 US and NO FEES (as of 4/3/01 but could change according to the markets), not a huge difference, but enough to buy a local beer or two, but depending how much you exchange, and they have better hours of operation.

It is best if you exchange your money to thiers, I am NOT saying the locals will rip you off, but thier money looks alike and a funny exchanged bill could make it into your hands and you would not catch it, I feel this way because we were aproched by at least three different street huslters in the evening hours. Even though the police do not wear guns that does not mean there are not any crimes against the tourests, they are out at night. So be carefull.

This is 'off topic' but for those who did not like my trip report I may have a thing or two to help you stubborn AC travels out on your travels, but I can only wonder if you would ever go anyplace else.

First is exchange rates.
Second and third just ask,
but leave a email address.

I think next time, you should do your research,,, We research Belize 1 year before we went and bought books, etc... You have to remember it's a 3rd world country and not a country club.. I'm sorry your dives didn't go great, but you seemed to have it out for Belize,,, If you don't like it don't go back...We love it there and we have alot of great friends there both on the back side and the front side.. Anything that happens on the island, it's been done up here in the states 1000 times over..... don't mean to be so upfront with you all, but what do you think, when you go on vacation or holiday, that these things don't happen... Should of done your research!!!! Sorry, Rick

And about the exchange rate,,,, You can get you money exchange if nessarry by the hotel with no charge and if you need Traveler checks exchange go to Estel's,, He'll do it... Like I said if you do your research you would know...... Also everyone on the island takes, US dollars... ?????? Sorry so being such a butt, but this guy has my goard now.... You'll be fine, Rick
