Hi All -- from Montana USA

Have booked a week at Belizean shores in May 2002, and am looking forward to a fabulous vacation/honeymoon. A few questions for those who have answers...

* What's the situation on drinking water, eating uncooked vegetables (i.e. salads, etc.)?

* My husband is an Avid fly-fisherman & a guide here in beautiful Montana... any recommendations for a down-to-earth, fun & knowledgable fly-fishing guide? Also do we need to bring rods & such or are they provided?

* Restaurant recommendations?

* Anything we just gotta do... that made your trip unforgetable?

* Any problems with Sand flies on the beach or mosquitos?

Eat the food, drink the worries!
As far as restaurants go, opinions tend to differ. Here's mine:
BC's Beach BBQ on Sunday - don't miss it, and get there early, before they run out of food!
Jambels Jerk Pit - delicious!
Papi's Diner - We ate here a couple of times!Yummy! Lobster and ceviche to die for!
Sweet Basil - great salads, shrimp and lobster - very fresh!
Mango's - good cajun cookin'!
Estelle's & Lily's- great places for breakfast
Capricorn & Rendevous - didn't make it to either, but consistently pull in rave reviews

For must-do activities, go see Tony & Yvonne at Fido's dock. They can hook you up with anything you want to do. Tony's parasailing was a great way to see the island, and a lot of fun too! Snorkle Hol Can and Shark Ray alley..very cool. An all day Fishing/snorkle/beach BBQ is great fun, and a good value. I went with Jerry Ack and Rocque Caliz at Sol Caribe...the bbq was everything we had caught earlier that day...including lobster! Delicious!

Sand Flies were terrible on the north side of the island, mosquitos are voracious, especially at night. Wear good repellent. I bought 100% deet from Cabelas, and it worked like a charm.
I saw lots of people on the plane bringing their own fly rods, but they can be provided by an outfitter.

Not to WILL have fun! And by all means...catch Barefoot Skinny at Fido's..the dude can play!

Yup the ol' Pirate got it just about right. In May there shouldn't be much of a problem with the little sand nippers. Gets worse from July-August to mid-November.

Do NOT miss Sweet Basils (open for lunch only) or the Palapa Bar which is about a 1/2 mi. north of Sweet B's on your way back to BZ Shores. Might want to leave a trail of breadcrumbs back to the condos from the vicinity of the Palapa, it is a VERY good place to enjoy large amounts of adult beverages. Have a great time, and don't get lost wandering around the huge swimming pool at BZS.

we just returned from a week on ac. we found culinary delights in some local spots like mickeys (sp?), the reef and papi's. the cinnamon rolls at ruby's are great. we also had good food at fido's and elvi's, but much pricier and definitely not any better than the others. should you feel the need to take a boat ride to mata chica, on the north part of ac, and spend a lot of money, then try out mambo's. extremely pricey, but great food and a fantastic chocolate souffle (sp?.
