Yup.

Never stayed at Banana Beach, but all the comments I've read about the place have been positive. At the risk of being obvious, Banana Beach is farther from town than Belizean Shores - at least if the map on the following link is correct.

You'll have to decide if just over 1.5 miles south of town is the right location for you - not withstanding the quality and appeal of BB. How far can you stagger after a late evening at Fido's?

Banana Beach is now where near as far from town as Belizean Shores. Belizean Shores is 3.43 miles and Banana Beach is 1.44.

As I suggested before 5 at Belizean Shores and then 5 in town would give you the best feel for San Pedro. Banana Beach is great place but will be a long walk (especially at night). I would consider anything further than 10 minutes after a night out to be cabbing distance. I would stick to your choice of the Tides this time and on your next visit (and there will be one) try Banana Beach.

Simon - thanks for the info. I'm sure that in your business you know the distance to resorts better than most.

Before my first trip to San Pedro, I looked at all of the resorts shown on the map in this website. I know a number of people have found the map helpful. It appears that distances shown on the map are plain wrong - Belizean Shores is shown as less than 1.5 miles north of town.

Time for a map update?

Thanks for the help. Banana Beach, from what I can surmise, is about a 20 Minute walk to town. Also there appears to be alot of things to do in the vicinity of Banana.(Airstrip South) Is it not true that Banana is far superior to the Tides? The Beach is MUCH NICER
Also how much is a cab fron Banana to Town?
In any case Banana is so much more accesible than Belizean Shores

It's nice walk from fido's to banana beach but about 20 minutes but enjoyable. Take a small flash light and enjoy. The hardest part is trying to look down as you walk. The stars, the stars. smile

And all you wonderful men out there in Belize Land
Thanks for your advice. BUT I have made my Final
choice. 5 Nights at Belizean Shores and 5 Nights @ Mata Rocks. I can not fathom how much energy one puts into a vacation. My choice of applying to Grad school was so much easier.
Lets all enjoy our life to the best we can
