no one is #2, "a 10'x 10' hut on stilts sounds like the old one, but since i have never seen the new one, i could be wrong."

I wrote, yep, it is option 2. it is not a hut on stilts. I was saying that option 2 ("I could be wrong") is correct.

I agree, don't get me wrong I'd rather be in SP then where I am now, it's just in my mind there is very little that compares to NYC

Thanks for the tale Dan! Artistic license or not, I'm now going to get some travel documents copied and kept apart from the originals, so sorry for your bad luck, but your amusing tale serves as caution to others.

The only place I've ever been where you actually COULD leave anything outside your room, and that was because there were no LOCKS to your room, was on Eleuthera, one of the Bahamas islands. Beautiful place - 110 miles long by maybe 2 miles wide at the widest point and three policemen! You didn't need keys - couldn't have met more honest, decent people. Beautiful place, but then again, I daresay there's someone out there who's got a horror story to tell, just as you did with Belize!

We're off to AC on Friday for the first time, so hope to experience the holiday that you didn't!! Want a postcard.....? Oops, sorry!


Cheers!
Moon

Dan, Sorry about your trip. You clearly win the prize for worst vacation to Belize. As someone mentioned earlier, come back ,it's gotta be better!! Also, I'm sure you've realized that a few people on this site are a little sensitive about ANY negative critique of Belize. Thanks for posting.

Photocopying yopur travel docs & keeping them in a separate safe place is ALWAYS a good idea and one of the first things people should learn if they are going to travel.

I always make two sets, if I have a travel companion and we trade, each of us having at least one complete set of copies.

Not sure they would have helped in this situation, though, One set would probably have been set on fire by spontaneous combustion, the other soaked by a spilled bottle or two of Belikin.


Have fun Moon. Send the postcards as soon as you get there, they might be here by Xmas laugh

Police Station? Fire Station? How long ago was your trip? Police station #1 you described is torn down. The picture you show is the fire station. Did you Photoshop the word police station into the photo?
You did a fine job of writing a story. It makes a very good story – kinda like “Don’t Stop the Carnival.” I only wish you had just made it a story and left out names. I hope you can begin to see your part in this. There is a saying here, “You think the service is slow, complain and see how slow it can get.” I don’t understand why you didn’t call the embassy and get the straight scoop before you trotted off. And, why did both of you have to go. And, with your limited amount of time why did you waste time on the water taxi to and from Belize City instead of the plane to the muni airport. It would have cost the same for one of you to go on the plane as it did for two of you to go together. AND, speaking of Belize City, it must have been awhile ago as the embassy has moved to Belmopan which is the capital, not Belize City. Did the US government leave an office in Belize City just for getting passports?
Here’s a hint: Belizeans answer the question you ask – they don’t give out information. I know as I have lost it a number of times here trying to get things like cable TV, telephone and golf cart permit. Pushing people here has never gotten me what I wanted.
I hope your next adventure is a little more leisurely.

when I travel, I photocopy twice my passport, drivers license, and travelers checks, and ticket, keep a copy seperate in my room and and have someone in the US keep a copy. that way in an extreme emergency you can call that person in the states and they can fax the copy to you or read you what you need to know.
