I keep seeing posts that tell people to make sure to bring ziplock bags with them to Belize. I must have missed some posts because I was wondering what we need the ziplocks for?

Well, having been newly introduced to the ziploc phenomenon myself, I can tell you I wondered the same thing, but they truly are a must. We stayed in the jungle for several days before coming to Ambergris and everything we had worn while there was soaked. A lot of our clothing was wet from hiking, horse-back riding, and tubing. Being in the rain forest made stuff damp from the high humidity anyway and it never dries out. You can put all the wet stuff in the zip locks so the rest of your stuff stays dry when its time to pack up and go home, or onto your next destination, like us. If you are just going to AC the zip-locks are good for all the wet swimsuits and anything else you wear snorkeling. My only mistake was not bringing more. When I go back to the jungle again, I think I'd pack each outfit in a zip-lock just to save them from dampness.

Other good uses for ziplocks are for storing the yummy food you bring back to your hotel room and packing. We used the 2.5 gallon size for our clothing....just folded things up, stuck them in the bag, zipped the bag halfway closed, pushed the air out by rolling it into a cylinder, sealed it the rest of the way and flattened it out--just like the space bags on TV. It really saved us ALOT of room--we carried our luggage on instead of checking it so we had limited space. When we were packing to go home, we reused the bags so we had room for the stuff we brought back.

and they make good carrying cases for your cameras when you go cave tubing.....just remember to suck the air out.

bringing back conch shells.

they need to air out a bit. i chuckle as i write because i had a particularly nasty one this time, huge, beautiful, but a lil critter bit must have been left inside, cause WHEW when they picked my suitcase to check over, it cleared the area.....

also to carry your lotions and bug sprays in, and maybe an anti-itch stick....
