I'll be visiting CC and AC asap!

I'd greatly appreciate answers to the following questions/ideas:

1) can I stay for three months? I'm a Canadian citizen living in the USA. Very flexible and thinking: Dec, Jan, Feb.

2) what low-end airfare should I be able to find? and where?
Departing Portland Oregon USA. Hoping to find something for about $500 ???

3) does it make sense to bring an inflatable kayak? is the sharp coral a problem? would there be duty/hassles ?

4) thought about bringing a folding bicycle but it seems that it would cost $80... surely I could buy a bike there for that ???

5) is there a limit on electronics, cameras, film, liquor, etc brought into the country?

Thanks for any answers; I'll buy you a Belikan once I'm there smile ))

Interesting -you emailed me directly and I have told you that you can stay here for three months-it is just that every thirty days you must pay 25bzd to immigration to have your visa extended.
Flights due a search- Barbara K seems to come close with the best fares(use search function on board)
Your Kayak would be best kept away from sharp coral-in fact this goes for every type of boat.
You can buy a bike here for 125usd or less.
there is no limit for personal electronic effects but there is for liquor which is not that expensive anyway.

The airfare from Portland is usually higher than $500. But you may be able to find that if there is a sale on. Also, the best rates are for stays under 30 days, higher for up to 120 days. Very high over that. Try looking on Orbitz, Travelocity, etc. and even on AA or CO websites. There are some good rates out there these days.
