Does anyone know the most innexpensive way to call back home to Wisconsin while on AC? Our cell plan is not nation wide. Are calling cards available or what is the best route?

I don't know, but be careful. I was in Costa Rica recently and had a family emergency at home and made a few credit card and collect calls home (8)short calls....cost me $ thing for sure. Never make a collect call from a pay phone.

They have calling cards around in machines you can use to call out, shouldnt cost too much per minute. Cheaper to use the BTL cards than an ATT because of how they have the contracts with there phone companies. They want you to buy there stuff, its cheaper and works as good. Little tip anyways, you can also rent a cell phone for a few days and charge it with a calling card, surprisingly not too expensive to do either and a nice freedom on the island.

I just returned from a/c and found the best bet was for $1 us per minute from the internet cafe. i just pulled my golf cart right up, they rang the number for me on their cordless phone. Got to love simplicity...

We always go to Sam's club and buy a phone card to take with us. I think that we got one last weekend with 800 minutes for around $27. Works gread and you can always use them up at home if you have any minutes left.

Did the Sams Club phone card work in Belize?
