    Hi Lorie,

    We’re coming for a stay in a few days. I recall a while back hearing of a place in San Pedro that cared for injured iguanas, and would let visitors come in and see them (for a donation). Are they still around, and if so, where are they located?

    Also, are there other small things to do, like a local museum or art gallery? I love those small organizations and would like to visit and donate.

    We will be a party of 6, staying at the Affair to Remember, Dec 3-9th 2015.

    We want a whole day on the water. Visit to the Blue Hole, perhaps snorkel there. But definitely fishing also. I have been told you can set up the best trip for us.

    Please let me know what you have connections for

    I will be in Belize in week of Jan 26 at the Sun Breeze with the Fike family.
    They told me to contact you in regards to scuba diving and snorkeling. I have already contacted the dive group from this hotel for pricing. Fike’s mentioned your pricing may be better. I would love to find a local with a boat that can take us snorkeling. If we were to take the water taxie is there a beach we can snorkel off of?
    Thank you kindly.
