Cindy and Renita made our visit outstanding. They knew everyone on the island it seemed. Fishing, diving, tubing eating out, we just said what we wanted and it happened.

My friend and I just returned from a fantastic trip to Belize, which included some time in the Cayo District (western part of the country--a must) and in San Pedro on Ambergris Caye. We read all of the good reviews for this place and figured we had to try it--we were not disappointed. If you are the kind of traveller who needs luxury pamering, this is not the place for you, but if you are a go with the flow kind of traveler who is fine with comfortable accommodations and yummy breakfasts (beg for the French toast), you will not be disppointed. And the service that the owners/hosts (Cindy and Renita) provide is phenominal. They are really nice and know EVERYONE on the island and can make your stay a much more rewarding experience (which tour guides are the best, restaurants to try, places to shop for certain items, etc. etc.). Bikes are available for free use, as are beach towels, and they do tihngs that go above and beyond (like mailing your postcards that you forgot to do before heading to the airport, or loaning you a beach bag during your stay). While you are in San Pedro, do not miss the Mayan fish at Elvi's--my taste buds didn't know what to do.

As a side note, I strongly recommend to active travelers to not miss caving in the Actun Tunichil Muknal in the Cayo District. Do some research on it beforehand to see if it's something that would be up your alley--it is a once in a lifetime experience. And if you are an animal lover, don't miss the Belize Zoo on the mainland. Get in touch with Sharon, the zoo director, and for a small donation to the zoo ($50US) we were able to get in a cage w/ Sharon and pet a jaguar (who was on the outside of the cage) and also had it lick our faces. The zoo has been a labor of love for Sharon and her team, who does an amazing amount of conservation education and does not get one cent from the Belizean government. Any donation you give will be put to good use. If you want some history on the zoo before heading down there, read *The Last Macaw,* which just came out and gives a history of how the zoo got started and the politics of animal preservation in Belize.

  • Liked — The service and the breakfasts.
  • Disliked — Small bathroom.

We highly recommend Changes in Latitude (CIL). We spent 5 days at CIL and most of it was with Belize being at the bulls-eye of the first tropical storm of the season. This was not part of our plan but we adapted quickly. Cindy and Renita were great. They kept us dry and were always there for anything we needed, but kept in the background so we could lounge around without feeling we were in someone else’s home. They know the island inside and out and were a critical source of information regarding excursions, restaurants and general guidance. And, the breakfasts were great.

The location of CIL was perfect. It is just the right distance away from downtown – not so close as to be noisy but close enough to walk or, better yet, take one of CIL’s bikes. There is a lot of development on the island and it is quite spread out without easy means of getting around. But there is only one downtown. It is small, funky and fun and you don’t want to miss it. The downtown is where you find the local-owned establishments and where the people that live on the island do business and hang out. They are beautiful, charming and gracious people and were an important part of our Belize experience. If we had stayed at one of the resorts further from downtown not only would we have been limited to contrived resort restaurants but we would have missed the real ‘vibe’ of the island.

Hey if anyone is headed to San Pedro to go out on the Tradewinds catamaran - do yourself a favor and go in a day or 2 early or stay a day or 2 afterwards and enjoy the hospitality of Renita and Cindy at their fabulous B&B! It's a great way to start or end your trip! Very relaxing and the girls are the best - and the pier for Tradewinds is literally right next door at the Belize Yacht Club! In fact the Yacht Club extends pool privleges to the guests of the B&B! It's convenient, relaxing and a great way to experience San Pedro.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Renita and Cindy. Having never been to Belize I relied heavily on their helpful recommendations prior to, and during our visit, with regards to logistics and optional attractions. I cannot adequately express how helpful they were, from arranging our flight from Belize City to providing postage stamps. They called restaurants, gave directions and set up our snorkeling at Shark Ray Alley with the fabulous L'il Alphonse as well as the amazing massages we had at Tropical Touch Day Spa.

The delectable breakfasts (provided by friendly and informative Renita) were a perfect way to start the day and a chance to compare notes with the other guests.

I almost didn't book Changes in Lattitudes because it isn't right on the beach and doesn't have its own pool. But with only a few steps to the beach and with complete access to the pool next door, we were probably closer to the ocean and a pool than we would have been at many of the larger hotels. We never needed any transportation as everything was within walking distance. And even being right in the midst of San Pedro, the property was very peaceful, and quiet at night. Several nights after dinner we would play Scrabble or hang out in the hammocks, enjoying the soft music piped into the arbor-covered sitting area.

The rooms are very, very small, but clean and adequate. We had bunk beds - I had the lower double bed and my 22-year-old daughter climbed to the upper single. My most important requirements were met: clean, comfortable beds, and a shower with good water pressure and sufficient hot water.

All in all a great experience.

Changes in Latitudes definitely changed our attitudes! We had a wonderful and restful time. The b&b is very peaceful and a beautiful setting. The grounds are well maintained and there is lots of space to relax and unwind including a comfy courtyard with chairs couches and two hammocks. There are also convenient lockers for hanging wet swimsuits and dive equipment. It is also very centrally located with access to all bars and restaurants. The hosts Renita and Cindy could not have been more accommodating or fun! They also took care of all excursion arrangements and just let you know you were confirmed. They really went out of their way to find the best deal and the most high quality experience. We would highly recommend this b&b to anyone considering a stay in Belize!

My wife and I used to vacation regularly in Mexico 25 years ago, but recent experiences left us less than satisfied. When planning this trip as a Bachlorette Party for my daughter, she suggested we consider Belize. After a few contacts with diver-friends of mine, it was apparent that this is a great location to visit. The next step was "Where"? We have always liked to try to find the unique places when we travel - big, crowded resorts are not our preference. When we discovered the C.I.L. website, I think we stayed on it for a couple hours. All the accomodations sounded great, the attitude of the owners was welcoming and friendly, and the breakfast option was a clincher. Through several extremely helpful and informative e-mails with Cindy and Renita (C & R), everything was arranged for our party of 8 and we were on our way.

Based on the concept that (almost) all we do in our rooms is sleep, the rooms are "adequate" (read "small" by U.S. standards). My wife and I lucked into the nearby Garden Room at an adjacent property (thanks again, C & R), which is a very nice studio room. The kids got the regular rooms, but we heard no significant complaints. One note to the upper-bunk sleepers - after a pub-crawl-night don't forget to turn off the ceiling fan before you go to bed!!! OUCH!!!

Breakfast is very good. We especially loved Renita's "local" versions, since our eating-out rule is "never order what you can get at home". One exception - the french toast is awsome, and certainly much better than anything at my home. My wife loved the coffee so much, that was the only souvenier she brought home (that's the only thing I don't drink, so you have to take her word for it).

For planning your activities each day, C & R are great for a no-stress way to do anything you want. I don't have any idea if the prices they got for us were the best available, but each experience they set up for us was first-rate. Each one (snorkeling, cave-tubing, zip-lining, sunset booze cruise, biking the north beaches, etc.) was escorted by fun, knowledgeable and professional guides who made the experiences the best ever for our whole group. Every recommendation for food and drink locations in San Pedro were excellent and reasonable. Who would have thought I would eat the best pizza in my life in Ambergris Caye?? When I ran out of cash (my fault, as usual), they were able to make a bank run for a refill and add it to the bill with no fuss. Just tell them what you want to do or what you need the day before, and everything will be arranged by the time you come in from dinner. They worked out several special requests for us with no problems that we were aware of.

This trip was so much like our "good ole' days" travels from years ago - relaxed, non-stop fun without a worry or care for five straight days. The only bad experience was having to leave. If they ever need a handy man and replacement cook, my wife and I would sign up in a heartbeat.

We will definately come back, and all our friends are already sick of hearing about how much fun we had without them.

  • Liked — Service and attention to guest desires.
  • Disliked — Upgrade of the A/C units would be nice.
