      New Year's 2015

      Caye Caulker Dec 16, 2014 at 2:51 AM

      Hi all,

      My husband and I will be spending our New Year's in Belize's Caye Caulker and was wondering what New Year's Eve/Day is like there. Would there be many events to attend on the night also can anyone recommend a good restaurant for dinner? Is it best to perhaps book as I imagine it can be quite busy...

      Any suggestions/recommendations will be most helpful.

      Thanks in advance.

    • Safety Concern

      Caye Caulker Dec 1, 2014 at 12:26 PM

      We have been thinking about going to Caye Faulker but after reading such scary reviews of things that happen there we are really concerned if we will be safe there. We are four ladies age 62. Should we stay away and go somewhere else? We really wanted to experience everyday carebbean life and not stay at some fancy all inclusive place
      Thank you for any help

      So my boyfriend and I are from the U.S. and we're thinking about moving to Ambergris Caye, Belize in the next couple of years. Could someone please give me a little information about the things I'll need before making this move? Also could I get an average number on the amount of money I'll need to have saved before making this move? Are there many job opportunities for people coming from another country there? I know I'll need to get a work permit how long will that take can I apply for one before I move?

      Hello - headed to Ambergris Ca in a couple of weeks with 10 other family members.
      We are clear on using bottled water for everything. Curious about the fruit and veggies there. Do you suggest cooking everything or will we be safe with raw fruit and veggies.
      Also where can we buy good seafood for cooking dinner at the resort?

      Thanks so much - Virginia

    • Visiting Ambergris Cay from Oct 8 - Oct 15

      by kuang0204 Online Now Aug 20, 2013 at 8:10 AM

      This is my first time to visit Belize, not sure what to expect if I decide to visit from Oct 8 - Oct 15th. I enjoy water acitivities and would love to visit mayan sites and do some hikings when weather permits, with that being said, my main concern is the likelyhood of being able to do all these outdoor activities in mid October. I've heard anytime is a good time to visit Belize but the hurricane season could rain a lot and ruin the experience. Any suggestions and/or past experiences are appreciated.

      Ambergris Caye or Placencia?? (URGENT!!)

      by minktastic Online Now Jun 22, 2010 at 8:08 PM

      Please help!! My husband and I are making last-minute plans to vacation from July 1-6. We want a nice beach vacation, not overly touristy but not too remote. We'd love to go somewhere with clear water and comfortable beaches, great snorkeling (right off the beach and/or cheap and easy to get to), and some kind of small town with local restaurant options.

      We think we've narrowed it down to 2 good options: Ambergris Caye and Placencia. I understand that Ambergris Caye is a little more touristy than Placencia, but it doesn't seem like it's gotten too bad. Which place has the better beaches, the better snorkeling, the more interesting town? Or, is there anything else that we should be considering in comparing the two? Any information or opinions to help tip the scales would be useful!

      (Side note: the two hotels were looking at are Corona del Mar in AC, and Maya Beach Hotel in Placencia.)

I worry about the water especially for the pregnant daughter...we all want to relax and read, walk and fish, swim and snorkel...but nothing beyond that...it's a chance to get away from winter in the northeast of US...do we need repellant for bugs? I need a response quickly since I will be packing this week for departure next weekend...this is a first for all of us, so I want it to be memorable...shall we stay in the resort restaurants for dinner...which onces are close to Xanadu that won't require too much walking.
