Accidently hit the tab button and don't know if I already submitted or just made the darn post disappear...sorry if I repeat here.
Getting excited to return to SP after five years and hoped that I might get some feedback about what's new and what's tried and true. My wife surprised me with the plans for two week stay. ONLY wish we could afford one of the private places, but she settled on Oasis del Caribe and we hope it is a good spot. They informed us that some construction is underway on phase three so we'll have to hope for the best. I was initially frustrated by that news but decided that some hammering in paradise is far more serene that the phones and hammering at work:)
Especially excited to bring our three year old little man to find Nemo and my mother-in-law to blow her away with the beauty of Ambergris. Thanks in advance for any replys...
1) Sounds like traffic has become a fairly serious issue down there. I am re-thinking the week rental of a cart and maybe only going for a couple two or three days, but as I recall it wasn’t much more for the week than the few days. Is this still true? And who has the best deals?
2) How much is the Hol Chan – Shark Ray Alley excursion? I can’t wait to take Zane snorkeling…I recall that we really enjoyed Amigos del Mar last two times. Are they still a good pick?
FOOD: FIDOS! – Fish & chips…just the thought – Burritos big as your head…can’t recall the name of the restaurant out near the airport…is that Wednesday special? - The pizza shop with the magician waiter – The chicken rice and beans up near the cut – Elvi’s Kitchen for the Mayan Fish! – Ruby’s breakfast rolls – WOW! I gotta stop..any new recommendations?
What would be the best plan for a day trip to the mainland zoo for the little man?
BELIKIN...just the name conjurs warm feelings. I read here that it's suppose to be available in teh states, but the site showed no inventory. Any other leads because that could save me serious baggage weight on the trip home LOL. - Caribbean White Rum is a favorite too – I was struck by the One Barrel testimonials and will plan to add that to the sampling this time - and Marie Sharp’s round out our need for return supplies. How much of each can we bring back? Any advice on packing these?
That’s more than I should be asking, but really do appreciate the shared wisdom of the folks who know. Hope you are all having a great day and thanks again for any tips or suggestions.
