HELP!!!! OK who can help me here?!? - 06/06/03 05:30 PM

I'm not one to be cheap on vacation, but I need some help. I'm coming down with my whole family so we're talking 6 people here. Instead of flying from International, I am going to fly from Municipal. Normally I would not even think about doing this because of the luggage/scuba gear factor, but I am saving $287 by it. Not exactly chop liver there. Will pay for a bunch of belicans!How much of a pain in the ass will it be to get a cab or 2 and take me from International to Muni? I have never done it before and I would like to know what I should expect. Thanks in advance?

Zeke, taxi no problem about $20.00 per cab.... forget the boat, not worth it.

one way boat fare to $AC is 14.00 so you would save $12.00 per person. Cab from Intl. to Belize City will cost $17.50 per cab, unless they have gone up in fares (you will need two). If you are in no hurry and if you will not have to rush to catch a boat, it may be ok, but if it is stormy or worse, raining, the discomfort may over-ride the savings.
When I do the boat route, I make sure I have some trash bags to cover my stuff that I don't want wet and I also have a towel and a fold up poncho.

BZ my friend,

Trust me, you WOULD NOT be boat material. Unless of course the prospect of having the family and friends not speaking to you for the balance of the trip. On the other hand............

If you have at least four people the flight from City makes sense. Of course we haven't done it ourselves principally because we're too f------ lazy and not very bright.

Boats definitely out! Tell you the truth I ain't too crazy about the Muni thing either, but I booked it and gonna do it. Tell you how it worked out when I get back. Should be interesting with all the crap we will be carrying.

Capt.BigZeke: Check when you go out of the Terminal and you might find a Van that will take you all to Muni...
You might also check with "Gaz" who posted just above me. He runs a good outfit, have snorkled with his group.
For a bunch of good pictures go to my website at <http://oldgatorstravels.com> that's http://oldgatorstravels.com click on INDEX and then Belize A/C or other.

Zeke,
It is NO problem at all to do the Muni thing, and you are right about saving money!! I see that you booked it already.... damn, we offer a 10% discount to our guests, for golf carts too! One suggestion.... you may want to check with the Maya or Tropic people and tell them that you are coming to San Pedro via Muni ( they have actually checked my bags at International, so I didn't have to schlep them over to Muni.)
Try to get one of the kids in the seat next to the pilot. It's GREAT scenery from there!!
Got the Belikins chillin'!!!! Come on down!!!
