FYI from a reader on a remote caye resort, a Cayo lodge and a North Ambergris condotel.

We just got back from Belize and with your assistance it was a wonderful
Christmas-time 2-week trip. Thought I would give you a brief update on the places we stayed:
BLACKBIRD CAYE - everything was what we expected, or better concerning the diving. We also had two fishing packages and that was disappointing. They should stick with diving and snorkeling packages only. Personnel was delightful and food good.
BANANA BANK (Belmopan)-Unfortunately it rained but the trip to Tikal is well worth it! There is a Christian undertone that was not appropriate, prayers before each meal....or the other option is to advertise as a Christian facility.
BELIZEAN SHORES (Ambrisgris Caye) was very nice. We were traveling with a large group and the facility was perfect. Clean and new. Very nice pool and nice restaurant. It is run by a lady named Heather who does a wonderful job of accommodating everyone! One of the people in our group was on the Tropic Air flight that crashed. He is OK and so were the other 13 people on the flight. It is a amazing dealing with a situation like this in a country where liability does not exist....BUT it is a trip we will never forget! Thanks for your help! Phyllis K. Schwindt, Rock Island, Illinois, December 2002
