Bzegirl, that is in belize city by old belize, thats my daughter there, she was dying to do it. What I found to be dicriminating is that if you are a belizean the price for it is BZE$20.00 but if you're an american it's US$20.00 and dat is so wrong! I send my daughter to pay for it and they charged her US$20.00! Well hell I got mad, got up from the lunch table and went to complain and di moment they heard me talking creol dey apologize and give me back the difference and seh they mi think I am an american, that is so wrong, I felt so cheated. Even if I was, there should be one price for everyone, I find dat so wrong and as tourists u do feel cheated and taken advantage of but they also do dat in san pedro too with the price difference. Not every tourist is rich and most people save for a long time to go on vacation, it's just not right. Very bad publicity.......:blah
I thought they only focused on hotels, tourist village and when you're departing, etc. If you say you're a Belizean they charge you a lot less than if you are a foreigner at those places. You know what though Belize is not unique in that regard. When I was recently in Panama - they charge locals a diff price at the Panama Canal and other attractions than tourists. A lot of countries have that policy.
yeah, I guess you're right bzegirl, it's the way it is and it's wrong cause the usa does not do that. We all pay an equal price for any tourist attractions and btw, is that the dalai lama on your signature? sounds like it, I practice tibetan buddhism.
