Forgive me if I missed a post addressing this; I did a search but didn't find my particular issue.
I am part of a group of about 9-10 people coming down to AC in a few months. We are staying at a house, and are going to need to buy groceries.
The owner of the house has told us about a new service where you are picked up at the Belize City airport, then taken to a grocery store in Belize City, then take a ferry over to the house.
My questions are:
Has anyone used this service before, and is it the huge cost saver I have been told (30% less than AC)? Are grocery prices in Belize City (relatively) comparable to the states?
Besides the normal prohibited foods like meats, dairy, vegetables/fruits, can I fill my luggage with items like English muffins, cereals, vegetable oil, etc. to try to save money?
Is there a shipping service that can deliver boxes of items to the island or the house? A friend has told me that UPS offers real great rates for boxes shipped to some places (i.e. no rush to Paris = $30).
And most importantly, do I buy Belikin at the distribution center in AC?
Thanks very much!
