Thanks in advance to all those AC vets whom the rest of us virgins rely on.
OK---What is the avg. price for:
1-a Belikin at a local bar/restaurant vs a "take home" 6, 12, case pack from a tienda/grocery/distributor?
2-a daily golf cart rental? (near Banana B)

uh, you can see where our priotities are....

Happy Holidays, Feliz Navidad, Happy Kwanza, etc.

Thanks again.

If your a "real" beer drinker, go for the premium....I think they are 4oz larger and only $5.00 more a case... or get red stripe, as good if not a better beer....my last trip Belikin 30.00 a case...

I disagree. I didn't care for Belikin premium at all. Regular Belikin ranges from about US$1.50 to US$2.50 per bottle.

I think a case was about $25.00 delivered to your room and put in the fridge. The first time we were there we were surprised that there was no such thing as a six or twelve pack of Belikin. Either individual bottles or a case.

We've never rented a golf cart so can't help with that. Jena

Beliken is $2.00us/$4.00bz at most bars/restaurants. We did find it as low as $3.00bz in some places for the regular.
Golf carts will cost you right at $50.00us unless you shop around in town. We've paid as low as $38.00us/day.Bet you it's the higher number at BB.I'd rent one there for the first day and shop around for a deal for the remainder of your stay.

Thanks for all the info.
The golf carts appear a little pricy but it doesn't seem like we would need them more than a day or so.
It doesn't sound like Belikin is any more expensive than Stripe is in Jamaica or any of the regional beers in Mexico.
We are looking forward to our trip and can't wait to enjoy some real fresh seafood. Hopefully the lobster will be comparable to the Yucatan $10-$15 US for a nice plate with some sides.
This is the best message board for honest and friendly info and it is appreciated!
Thank you all again.

We all prefer the regular Belikin, less carbonated than the premium and the smaller bottle is just about right for quenching your thirst. Expect to pay about $15-$25 US for a full lobster dinner. The upper end will get you a big lobster tail. Kinda depends where you go. In my opinion, Papi's is the place to go for lobster. The grilled snapper just about anywhere is good, lightly spiced and better than anything you usually see in the states. Caliente for conch fritters. Do yourself a favor and try some new things to eat, Ambergris has a way of flavoring everything a bit differently than you might see in Mexico, and it is generally (in my opinion) not quite as spicy but a lot more flavorful. You definitely won't want for good food at reasonable prices.

Right now there is shortage of Stout! Who would have thought. The totally unreliable coconut telegraph claims Belikin will no longer make stout.....Hopefully the good, old Telegraph is wrong again.
