Doing your homework prior to the trip is fun and informative. If you happen to forget something, don't worry about it. Paradise Villas is a nice place, beautiful grounds and pool, quiet and secure and homey. Good location, just a few minutes walk to anywhere you might want to go. If you do need something from the grocery store, you can be there in two minutes, and the price differential is usually less than the trouble of packing and bringing. Great lunches next door at Paradise Resort, right on the beach, or for a quick beer. Note, if you plan on having a few Belikins in the house or on the grounds, have a case delivered to your room and put in the fridge prior to your arrival. Much cheaper. Good breakfasts at Lily's (couple minutes down the beach), or my favorite, Estels, another couple minutes. Don't miss Papi's Diner about a 10 minute slow walk north for dinner. Best Lobster around (in my opinion). Also try the Reef, good food reasonable. Don't worry about the street vendors, or the kids selling food items, not aware of anyone ever having a problem. Go down, leave your worries at home and enjoy yourself. You have to experience it to see why there are so many of us that speak so highly of it. I envy you your upcoming trip. Also, do yourself a favor and eat things you've never eaten before.
Regards, Bob

Recommend you try the new grocery store next to the new Castillo's hardware store near your villas - better prices and good selection. Ask the villas' desk - they will know the name of it - it's the non-pink grocery store. Also, recommend you eat at Los Cocos restaurant just around the corner from the grocery store - small, hole-in-the wall with great fried whole fish, fish fillets, pork chops, stewed chicken... with rice and beans - usually about $4US or less per plate; lobster and shrimp will cost much more. Happy time!

About dressing up on holidays - Tourists tend to be the ones who don't dress up. Belizeans and other residents will definitely take the opportunity to dress to excess with glitter, spandex, sequins, etc. (at least for the ladies). If you are considering Mata Chica for New Year - definitely dress up - the flashier the better actually. There are a lot of places for women to buy such outfits right here on the island - suggest stopping in at Mambo Chill for some super fashions. For men - a nice shirt with buttons and clean shorts with a belt will be considered dressy enough.

Bonefishing is good from middle of Nov to middle of April (no problem on finding guides then).
