I would love to be able to Kyaka to the north end of the island and camp on the beach for a few days. But I would like to know if that is ok since it is a nature preserve.

Bacalar Chico is the name of the reserve. They have recently developed a very nice visitors centre and I was told there is a camp site associated with this. Whether this is open to individuals, I do not know, but their email is [email protected]

Are you talking about Caye Caulker or Ambergris Caye?

Much of the property on the north island is privately owed. The far north end of the island is a preserve, I think this is the area Dane referrs to. I'd rather not have someone camp on my front yard. There are a few people who live on that side most I would say aren't looking for people camping in their yards either. Between the mosquitos and no'seeums not the best camp site.

I've heard that Glovers Reef is the place to camp.

You can camp at my place at the very South point of the South Island if you help the High school in any way.

I am more than happy to help, computers, network and website design are my specialtys. But the first couple of camping trips I was looking to escape and get away from people and electronics. Would any of these skills be need at the High School.
