The bus station is Belize City you get off and the market is right outside. Apparently this is not too safe an area. A woman taxi driver took us touring the city looking for hotel. She finally convinced us to take water taxi to San Pedro where she described nice beaches and relaxed time. She was right on. We me a very nice retired Dr. from Mo. on water taxi. He gave us suggestions on places to stay and eat and was right on. We spent first night at Lily's upstairs with great balcony for watching the beach. This was right in town. Place was okay, but over priced. We then moved on to Caribbean Villas which I would highly recommend. It was nicer there, had Internet available and service was good. Had great snorkeling out to preserve where there were lots of rays, some big green Moray eels and huge Grouper. Food was good at multiple places and I enjoyed shopping and rum punches. Left for home after three days on Sandro.
In summary would recommend Belize for good bus transportation, friendly people and warm climate.
