Very pleasently surprised. I had read negative report in Undercurrent (Vol
23 No2) and didn't expect much but the overall experience was great and far
exceeded my expectations. I am glad that I had the trip booked before I
read the article.

Mind you, this was my first trip to Ambergris Caye, so did not have any
prior experiences to make a comparison.

I definately want to go back as I found the reef beautiful and healthy and
while the marine life outside of the Marine Park is sparse, inside the
Marine Park it was great.

San Pedro is a fun and charming town and the Belizeians are wonderful,
friendly people.

Loved it all.
