What do I need to know? - 08/11/08 01:39 AM

I'm getting married this Saturday and we are going to Ambergris Caye on out honeymoon and we'll be staying at the Victoria House. Does anyone have any tips, suggestions, things we must do, etc.? Is there anything other than the obvious things that we need to bring with us? Also, does anyone know if the casino at the Belize Yacht Club is opened up yet? Thanks.

while pedro's is an interesting stop that's on everyone's list, (including ours) i'm not sure i'd go there on my honeymoon. laugh

how about a sunset cruise?
day trip to a ruin
catamaran to caye cauker
snorkel hol chan/shark ray
walk up the beach at sunrise
rent a golf cart for a day and explore
arrange his/her massages
take a manatee tour
do nothing but stare at the reef
tons more...

Well, it was not initially on our list, but we were presented with a situation that we couldn't pass up.

Victoria House is absolutely beautiful and you will have a lovely time there. Jesse is correct, they can point you to anything you might need. Bring a repellant with 30% DEET - The OFF sheets are great.
I love Pedro's and even on your honeymoon it is worth stopping in. If you and your new bride are both poker players - all the more reason to pop in! laugh
The couple's massage is a great idea. Asian Gardens does a couple's massage in their secluded outdoor courtyard. They are wonderful and the surroundings are so peaceful. Visit the Palapa Bar just the other side of the cut and have drinks while you stare out over the ocean at the waves breaking over the reef. It would be a shame to be that close to Mayan ruins and not see some, so be sure and consider a day trip. Shark/Ray Alley should be on the 7 wonders of the world list as far as I'm concerned - get there! There is an abundance of romantic restaurants on the island - Casa Picasso is my personal favorite, others will chime in with theirs. But don't pass up the opportunity to eat once or twice at the street vendors. If you are at all interested attending Mass at least once while you are there is a blessed experience. Pick out at least one very substantial piece of art to keep forever as a reminder of your honeymoon. Above all, best wishes for a wonderful new life! smile

Thanks for the tips everyone. Does anyone know the rules (or where I can find the rules) on whether I can bring (and how much) liquor with me?

You're allowed one liter each without having to pay duty.

Thanks - are there any restrictions on the types of containers, i.e. is glass ok?

I would suggest buying your booze at the duty free store from the airport that you leave to go to Belize.
