Heck, I am still waiting for Delta Airlines to fly there from Atlanta! A direct flight from Atlanta would be awesome and I can cash in some FF miles for the trip!

Atlanta gate would be great. Now have to drive to Atlanta, hop to Miami usually wait 2-4 hours , change air lines and fly to Bze. Only bad thing is if Delta ever opens up a direct flight to Bze from Atlanta they might open the flood gates of tourist and San Pedro will have traffic jams, American restaurants and will look like Cancun. None of us that love Belize want that. Maybe I will just continue to cobble together flights through, Miami, New Orleans and Houston to get to Belize.

True, true, I agree KBG. I fear it may be heading that way already. The north end of AC is already undergoing a "building boom", as far as I can tell. Dump trucks, steam shovels everywhere! confused
