Fodor's, the world-renowned publisher of travel guides, has just
released their new Belize and Guatemala 2005 travel book. Fodor's travel
guides feature reviews on the sights, restaurants, hotels, and other travel
experiences each country has to offer. Travel writers from all over the
world collect information for the guidebooks and pick establishments that
are the best of their kind; the best in their price range, or have a certain
special something. The "best" is, of course, a subjective matter, and
Fodor's listings are not meant to be encyclopedic. If an establishment does
not receive coverage, it does not necessarily mean it is bad or unsuitable.
Out of these reviews the editors recognize the very best of their type
with a "top pick" distinction, known as Fodor'sChoice. An establishment
boasting a Fodor'sChoice accolade is considered as something not to be
missed and always worth your time. Ambergris Caye can be proud that the ONLY
two restaurants in Belize that were given the Fodor'sChoice were Capricorn
and Casa Picasso.
Both, Capricorn and Casa Picasso were recognized for distinct
atmospheres, outstanding food and desserts. Owners of Casa Picasso, Chris
and Jennifer Eager told The San Pedro Sun that they were excited to receive
the recognition. "It is a real honor to be one of Fodor'sChoice," said Mr.
Eager, "There are so many good restaurants on the island and we were
surprised and very pleased." Regean and Merritt Rushing, owners of Capricorn
exclaimed, "It is great. We are ready to make our mark in the tourism
industry. We are simply ecstatic."
Fodor'sChoice's in other categories in Ambergris Caye include the Hol
Chan Marine Reserve and Cayo Espanto, in the lodging category.
