I love forums. How did we ever get by without them? This is a delightful area, the forum rules were a bit overbearing, but I understand.
Hats off to the webmaster!
Hello all, my name is Rick, my wife and I will be making our first trip ever to San Pedro in a couple weeks. We'll be staying at the Phoenix with some good friends who have been once before.
As I pore over the threads of this forum in the limited time I have, I'd appreciate any and all opinions on two key areas for us, food and fun.
We only have 5 days and need to relax some of the time, but I do love to snorkel. Is it possible, or even advisable to rent a small boat and go on our own just around the island? Or do the currents and other risks make guides a better bet? What about off the beaches/docks, I understand if we watch out for boat traffic there are a few great areas here as well.
We also like food. The smaller local flavor is always our preference, but nothing is out of the question. Even buying some lobster/fish from a guy who just caught it and cooking in our condo one night sounds like fun! Little places like Rachel Ray would find on that show where she ate well on $40 a day are always welcome. Short of that, just your favorite places that aren't overpriced would be great.
Can we go all the way to the north tip of the isle by golf cart? There's got to be a couple great bars along the way!
Thank you for your input, we're looking so forward to seeing Belize!
