I enjoyed my time in Belize, generally, but I am covered with bug bites head to toe even though I used some sprays. Be sure to bring the right bug repellent. We didn't even go to the ruins, just in the town and on the beach. I think Belize is more for the adventurous type people, fisherman, scuba divers, then it is for the general middle age tourist. Personally I wouldn't go back. Too hard to get there and to get around, but again, I am more into the beaches and easy snorkeling then the other stuff. Make sure you have a flashlight as well. The people there were all very nice. Especially in the restaurants and bars. we met some nice people there as well. be prepared though, the Town is very poor, dusty and the little kids will make you cry because you feel bad for them. Photos to follow

Where did you stay Janet?

A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

Janeto, you went to Ambergris Caye, a large island off the coast of Belize, yet a part of Belize.

Belize is a country, mostly mainland with many cayes.

Mainland is totally different than Ambergris Caye.

I had a perfect visual of the caye before I went, due to this forum, I knew what to expect.

So sorry you were not happy with that part of the country. We learn from experiences frown

well, I was on the Ambergris Caye forum,(I know the difference) but yes, I was at the Belize Beach Suites, very nice, top notch. I enjoyed my vacation, just wanted to state some of the things to consider.

Did the rest of your group feel the same? If you had stayed closer to town (say, south of the cut) do you think you may have enjoyed it more?
I'm sorry that your trip wasn't up to snuff confused frown confused ! Were they mosquito bites or just all kinds of little bugs???

Janeto, you can say been there done that, and did not buy the T shirt. Ambergris is not for everyone.

10 gals in your group had to be trying also.

Well at least it wasn't a bust and you generally enjoyed it!
Sounds like our first trip to Belize mainland.
Sorry to hear about the bug bites, that could make any trip a downer! frown
They spray for skeeters in town but that's about it. On our trips we cover us in deet before goin anywhere. (yep, it's a risk with deet, but I hate bites) Even during the day ya can get bit when the wind stops or is blocked. (YES, there are daytime skeeters eek )
Any favorite memory? wink

klcman, you must remember my posts from nearly one year ago!!! I really all depends upon who the 10 women are. I've planned several trips with groups of women but never had a bad experience until my trip to Belize with this specific group of women. But anyway, prior to this trip, I might have not understood. I had a great time anyway!!!
