Hi - I'm a newcomer to the Board...and to the idea of travelling to Belize...but I really am looking forward to a week without cel phones, beepers and business.... we are arriving on July 17 and staying thru the 24th...

Two initial questions:

1)my friend Bill and I are staying in a tree top suite a Portofino -- but can still change that part of our trip...does anybody have any comments positive/negative about a stay a Portofino and/or the North end of Ambergris?

2)I've surfed and read this board for a few days and have learned a great deal from all of you (so thank you!) but still have to ask...are the mosquitos that much worse on the North end of the Island???

Thanks for any/all comments...

We were up camping on our beach property about 5 miles north of Portofino two weeks ago and we were NOT attacked by mosquitos even in the bush.But, the flys would come out about an hour before sunset.Big 'ol things that would bite a chunk out of you.Just use some Deet rich spray and they will keep on flying.There was a lot of wind blowing which might have kept the mosquitos away but even in the jungle which is very mosquitos.
Just spray yourself good before you head out.
