I know how it is, we can hardly contain ourselves at this point! There is just a special magic to Belize.

We are staying 9 nights, same as last year. One week just isn't enough, is it? They pretty much had to carry us kicking and screaming to the airport! Ha Ha!

We never tried, Andojitos, but since you gave it such a great recommendation, we will surely try it this time. We were told that she makes tortilla chips for many of the restaurants on the island.

We did do some snorkeling off the beach and Tropica's pier. The water becomes pretty much waist deep about 50 yards out. We saw the most fish and even a 4 ft barracuda right under the pier. You aren't going to see a whole lot, but for a lazy afternoon, why not?

if you want to be both secluded & quiet yet still have easy town access, we stayed at caribe island. it is the most southern resort, and a fun 15 minute golf cart ride to town. you get to pass the croc lagoon [Linked Image]

they have equipped kitchens in every condo, plus air and cable tv. best of all, there are several sized rooms. we had our kids, plus a single friend. we had a 3 br 2-story loft suite, and friend was right next door in a mini-suite. pool, bar, little restaurant, maid service.

here are some pics:

Sweet Jane

Thanks so much for the pictures, they were wonderful to look at after working 9 1/2 hours today. Have to pay for our Belize trip. We have a Nikon Digital camera that I'm still trying to figure out. Takes really good pics but does not print as well. Maybe our printer, I don't know. Thinking about getting another 35mm to take with us so I make sure to get good pictures. We videotaped last year, so we watch every so often while we wait to go back. THANKS AGAIN. I'm going to post another question about the price of renting golf carts. $60 a day from Tropica, but read on this board $30 from somewhere???

I counted the days today I shouldn't have done that, 82. Yuck, oh well. I get my fix online, can't get enough, just like a little kid. When I was little and we would go to Florida every year. You live in Tallahase (sp)? we want to move to Marathon, but that isn't reality, so we are looking at Fort Pierce and Stuart area. Had to cancel a trip this past July because of my husbands back. We were going to look at real estate and availability of jobs. My son graduates next year from high school and is looking at University of Miami. Would love to move, but big decision.
Where was your favorite place to eat in Ambergris? We really liked El Patio, the grilled grouper sandwich was wonderful. I was alittle disappointed in Elvi's, but willing to try again.

yeah! we liked el patio too. and the waiter actually "got" our jokes (our humor is pretty off color). mickey's was good for breakfast.

we paid about $50/day for our cart, $250/wk.

those pics were digital. just learn how t use it. i love it now. my printer was only like $150. nothing fancy. you have to really make sure the printer settings are set for photo quality. i missed one little detailed toggle, and couldnt get a good print for 3 months. almost took the damn thing back. then i took the time one day to look at every single setting...and got it.

and then ther are right there on my pc & i look at 'em all the time & can share them like this:

my boyfriend and i stayed at tropica last new years. we were completely satisfied with our room/rates ect.
The beach at tropica is very nice and their workers are very sweet; the girl Ishia did my hair with braids and breads from the dive shop.
When i go back to AC i will stay there again.
One thing that I think is important to remember when traveling to another contry is that belize is very laid back and you do not recieve the same service as you do in the US. Belizian people are not in a hurry; and they have a lot to teach us about the way we live our lives. I bet there our no belizian people taking anxiety drugs. HAHA
Sorry to go on and on; I am an AC acholic and can not want to get back - you will have a blast!
