As if one needs to "get in the mood" for a trip to Belize... anyway, do you have any favorite movie rentals or music you play to remind you of a trip to AC or in anticipation of one? Have there been any popular movies shot anywhere in Belize? Only 13 days to go for us and the local temp is about 13 below!

Forget the movies. They were all awful and largely forgettable. The last one I had Benjamin Bratt and Armand Assante. I don't think it saw distribution anywhere.
Music--JJW's "Cowboy Boots and Bathing Suits is always a crowd pleaser (recorded in San Pedro). We are partial to some early '80s re-releases by Bertie Higgins, and Buffet's "Banana Wind". Over the years we've picked up some interesting stuff by the local gringo musicians, Barefoot Skinny, etal.

SKINNY FOR SURE.....JJW SEEMS BEST WHEN WE GET HOME. OUR FIRST TRIP WE BOUGHT A CD BY ANDY PLACIO BEFORE LEAVING AND IT REMAINS A FAVORITE TO GET US IN THE MOOD TO TRAVEL. PAST COUPLE YEARS I HAVE PLAYED FAR SIDE OF THE WORLD TO WAKE UP MY HOUSE ON THE MORNING WE LEAVE- ENJOY THE RIDE!!!!! DUANE
YA CAN'T PUT A PRICE ON A GOOD TIME

Another Minnesotan bailing out. Good for you. Jerry Jeff Walker, as mentioned above, is one of our favorites. Also, if you get bitten by the AC bug, see if you can find one of Wil and Dale's CDs down there, makes a good reminder to take home.
Been there, done that, the washing machine ate the T-shirt

You have to bring back Dennis Wolfe's "Gringo in Belize" CD. I put it on the Jukebox at my local watering hole over 2 years ago and they won't let me take it off! It get as many hits as some of the local C&W and Mexican faves!! Of course i love it too!
