Food, apps, etc

Sorry 1 more before I arrive tomorrow! =)

Landing on the island about 6pm, need to cross the street to check in; depending on how we feel, might go out to dinner, or just get some groceries. Any suggestions on easy/cheap near the airport/Ramon's? both restaurants/stores.

In general any suggestion on cheap, yet good eats for the next few days? Are road side stands permanently at a location, or do they float around? (ie if 'Bob' sells fruit at the corner of X & Y, is he there daily, or will he be at X & Y today, X & C tomorrow, etc)

Any suggested must install phone apps? I won't have cell coverage but I hear wi-fi is available many places. Wi-fi spots to avoid? Will Google maps work?

Will I have a hard time finding sugar free drinks? ie diet coke/coke zero? Is tap water safe? same for iced tea?

I did reserve a cart, airport, cart & room are all in the same spot, but now we'll be able to explore more! any must visit places? Where's the island's Mayan site?

Ramon's has a restaurant on site, but just next door, on the beach, there are also Blue Water Grill and Wild Mango's. There's a great little breakfast cafe just opposite the airstrip and if you ask around, Neri's tacos is another very cheap and delicious treat within walking distance. In fact, most places in town are within walking distance from Ramon's. Papusas are served every evening on Middle Street and you'll find street side BBQ's and holes in the wall wherever you go. Meat pies at Boogie's Belly (they run out fast though) are always great. Save on is close to the airstrip and convenient if you need a shop. It's also reasonably priced. Again, it's easier to just ask anyone directions than trying to give them here. Can't help with apps, but ask wherever you go if they have Wi Fi and they usually will give you the password if you're a customer. There is free Wi Fi in the park though it's quality is questionable. Google maps do work but the caye is so easy to get around that you shouldn't need them. The main drinks distributors produce Coke Light and some of the shops have imported cans of other sugar free soft drinks. Tap water is safe but can taste a bit chlorinated. Most people choose bottled water. Ice tea, ice cubes and all those things are safe. If you want a sugar substitute with your iced tea, just ask. Everywhere has it. The Maya site is down south, it's the Marco Gonzalez site is far south. If you want a tour, just ask at Ramon's and they'll set you up. There's only really one road north and one south, so it's best just to take off and have an adventure. Do make sure to enjoy the beach front road at Boca del Rio.

Bryan a new walking tour of great local eateries in San Pedro has just started, I did the first tour on Saturday and had a great time. Even though I have been living here 10 years, there were many things I had not tried that we got to sample. http://www.belizefoodtours.com/ and https://www.facebook.com/belizefoodtours

From Ramons you have a lot close by, if you walk around town and you will find no shortaged of great cheap local places. Head down Front Street towards Belize Bank building and on same side of the road there is a hole in the wall called Dixie Shake (no sign) they make great fresh fruit shakes and flautas.

As for phone aps Hot Guide Belize has phone app and a web version this one will save you money and get you the odd free drink :) http://hotguidebelize.com/
