          Lovely buildings and room, very clean and quiet, beautiful view of the ocean, right on the beach, and very nice people working there. However, the beach has a lot of seaweed and plants in water and the wind was very strong.

          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?
