I also have a friend who owns a hotel in Antigua Guatemala and have friends in San Salvador if those are better spots for you. I am flexible on dates so let me know what works for you guys. Rod
Hi Rod,

Any not too fancy places to stay in Belize? Like most of us......I'm on a budget trip

Thanks..........Mark

Yes Mark, There are a number of inexpensive places along the peninsula but I can get you a really good rate at our hotel also. There are rooms for around $50 a night. Give me a heads up when your heading this way.

I have plenty of gear or If you prefer to fish with a guide, there is a great one here that charges 500 a day and supplies all equipment and I would split that with you if you would like.

I'll switch from fishing to murder rate in Belize. I just left the huge "Is Mexico Safe" thread & there is a mention of how Belize is more dangerous than Mexico r.e., the 6 murders per day. Are they all in Belize City or spread amongst the whole place,or whatever. I'm not an alarmist and have been to Mexico a number of times in recent years,& not counting the past trips.

Yes, and you clearly missed the part where I am riding to Belize in 2hrs. I am not riding to Iraq or Afghanistan. Pick up a newspaper from any major City in the US and do a body count.

I agree with the Belize City problem. Crime is bad there, but mostly in the late hours. I have lived in Belize now for almost 8 years and am comfortable anywhere in the country accept for Belize City. You really want to be aware of your surroundings also when you are in Guatemala. Much better with a group.

In Placencia you will not even have the pesky fly to worry about
