Hi all,
Anyone familiar with this resort? Would like some feedback. I gather also the important things to bring, strong bug spray, comfortable sandals and hiking shoes, flashlight, anything else which is a must? will be there 3/27 to 4/2. also, when leaving, suggested time allowance to catch the plane?
Thanks all

also, sunscreen, ziploc baggies, windbreaker, money and good attitude, for fun.

Time, ask Tropic or Maya, they will tell you which of their flights to be on to meet your schedule leaving Int'l for USA.

Have a great visit to paradise, Belize It.

Why zip lock baggies????

Good to pack small clothing in, sit on them to squeeze out the air, and you can pack in a smaller suitcase......then you have them to use on vacation to keep things dry, on boats. Amazing how many uses you find for them.
Of course the obvious is pack that wet swimsuit in for your return trip home.
Mostly more uses for a female, than the handsome men.

Just got back from White Sands Cove, great place, nice beach, kitchen a nice extra, bring coffee and your own sugar if you use it, condo may or may not have it. Small flashlight a must for walking along beach at night. Town is a ways away, so we brought or bought enough packaged food for some meals in the room. Pasta mixes, canned tuna, breakfast muffins you bake, popcorn, etc. Pack extra food and less clothes, we overpacked and didn't wear a lot of things we lugged on the plane. You'll live a in a swimsuit and t-shirt . (sometimes the same one for days). Capt. Morgan's food is better than we heard it would be, Sweet Basil a must. Enjoy, I want to go back already.

Janeto,

Are you aware that you will be North of the cut, and getting back from town after 8pm will require a water taxi. Just making sure you know it makes for nightlife a little tougher.

The restaurants and nightlife are wonderful! You don't say the age of your group, but it is definitely NOT a spring break kind of place. We will be there around the same time as you, March 25th through April 3rd.

There are ten of us going down this time! Four couples and two single gals. We are all in our late thirties to late forties.

Maybe we will run into you at BC's BBQ on Sunday! It is the best!

Go to http://BelizeBeachSuites.com/ to see layout of buildings. Try not to get Building H, it's a little far far from beach. Two bedroom are roomy, with large kitchen/living room. Bedroom seems bigger in one bedroom. Weather was terrific , we had 1 day of rain in 7, and it is unusual to get that much rain. Temp in 80's all day, with a breeze always off the ocean, usually picking up in aft. Evenings could get cool (according to my wife) not jacket weather, some sort of cover-up needed w/long sleeves. Windows open all the time, no need for air conditioning. Sorry I can't suggest anything about the nightlife, but my nightlife tends toward the boring side, but ten women should be able to liven up any place you go on the island. Have a great time!

how long is the water taxi trip back to the white sands? where do they drop you off? isn't there also a pedestrian ferry?

Janeto,
I am not sure how long from your hotel the water taxi would take. I was at Capricorn for dinner and the ride back was about 20 minutes at night, back into town. We stayed at the Belize Yacht Club. You cannot cross the ferry after 8pm, so the only way back to your place is by water taxi in the evenings.

I was just in San Pedro in January. Ferry service now runs much later. At least until Hammock House closes.

Have fun.

Ferry now runs all night but it will cost you $10 BZ to cross with a golf cart after 8PM. Normally it is $5 BZ one way, $10 BZ round trip.You will need a cart to get back to White Sands if you go this way.

Hey, that's good to know that the hours are extended! But it gets a bit pricey to go over at night with those rates!

You'll probably want to make sure that you have a powerful flashlight with you too. The headlights on the carts aren't always all that and sometimes don't work at all, which you may not notice until it is too late . . .literally.

$5 usd is a bit pricey to pull you across the cut in the dark late at night???? Don't you think a teriffic service like that is worth the price of two lousy beers?????? How much did you pay for a 13 minute flight from Belize City to San Pedro???

just having fun

Jack, it isn't alot for once or twice. but if you are staying up north and want to make it into town, say every night.. or twice a day. IT is well worth the money, but over ten days.. I could buy a WHOLE lot of wine for myself!!!!! I don't drink beer, but the lighthouse version of Belikin was quite nice, on a hot day!

Seven days to go!!! Woooooo Hoooooo!

You can purchase a one week pass for the ferry at the town hall.It is somewhat discounted, but I don't remember the exact price. They also sell a monthly pass. I don't know if you have to pay the extra at night with the pass. Can anyone help on this?

The ferry boat from WhiteSands tyo town takes 10 minutes and drops you at the ferry dock, more or less in the middle of town. It is a fun way to travel but costs, as I recall, US$5 per head each way. There is a page with the ferry times/costs on the A.C. website.
