    I have been to Mexico 3 times (Cancun, Mexico City, and Tijuana) and got dysentery 3 times, ruining the vacations, but I've never had any trouble in Ambergris Caye. So what're my chances of having a bad time in your area?

    Dear sir, I read that transportation is available from the resort to the airport, but which airport? We would be flying from California (San Francisco, Oakland or San Jose) and don't know which route to take. We also wondered whether it is necessary to rent a car, as we would only stay for 4 or 5 days. Thanks, David and Aniko
