they stopped people driving cars and trucks. Not many walk or drive golf carts on 77.

"if I were in Myrtle Beach, South Beach, Orlando, Key West, or anywhere in the U.S. and subject to immigration sweeps simply by riding down a public thoroughfare, there would be outrage like you wouldn't believe!"
Clearly you don't take vacations in Arizona. Not a good place to have a suntan and be born in New York with a name like Gomez.

I would like to know if anyone has heard from someone who was actually disturbed by this checkpoint? Seems like some people would have us turn the other cheek no matter what a tourist does. It's only a small crack rock he was on vacation leave him alone. He might tell his friends and they won't come here on vacation anymore.

If guests are properly informed by the hotels, managers and operators around the island and advised to always carry ID including a copy of your passport and drivers license there would be no problem. What happens in the US if you don't have a drivers license and you get pulled over?

Savvy travellers are not going to be affected by this in anyway shape or form.

Plenty of tourists still go to the US even though US Customs and immigration are the rudest and most arrogant people on the planet.

A lot of folks think they can simply move here and not follow any of the rules aka "pay their dues" in this supposed third world country. It's not a "do you have your papers while on vacation" checkpoint it's more of "are you legally here in Belize" checkpoint for those that feel they don't need to stamp in every 30 days or have valid immigration or labor status because they feel they don't need to follow the local laws. I hope its a step or lean in the direction of making Ambergris Caye a Tourism Zone.

Now if they had a breathalizer out there, now that would have been something.

If they're checking to make sure you've paid your fees every month to live in Belize, a copy of your passport won't do.

I confess that I rarely carry any ID. I'm also not driving, just walking.

I would guess the number of illegals that are found in San Pedro in this kind of traffic stop is miniscule.
