Hey Dixie. I'm also going down for my 1st time July 1-7. I looked into some good dive spots (Blue Hole, Hol Chan, Shark/Ray alley) there are links off this site to find others; as well as dive masters. Gaz Cooper is a frequent visitor to this board and he sent me a quick note on costs. Seems like a great guy and I'm gonna go with him. I'm also looking into fishing spots. Will probably just go with whatever I find when I get there. Doesn't seem like too big a difference. Hit the flats for bonefish is what I hear. Also, look at the link for General Posts about Belize on the message board because we're planning a 4th of July party @ Fido's. All are welcome. Most of us will be meeting for the first time. Hope to see ya there!
