Letter to the Editor: Ambergris Caye has changed into a living nightmare


Letters-to-the-EditorDear Editor:
Fulfilling a five year goal of living the dream on Ambergris Caye, turned into living a nightmare!
Your tourist numbers are declining and will continue to decline.
Assuming you arrive at your San Pedro destination safely in any of your disgustingly dirty unsafe taxies will no doubt suffer upper respiratory sickness from the unbearable Sargasso on your already minimal beaches.
I am leaving San Pedro and will not recommend this as a vacation destination to any of my travel friends.
Your taxi drivers have run me off the road several times during my stay here. I have also been physically injured by a four inch protruding broken arm rest while entering a taxi at night.
All this along with the obvious gringo price gouging is forcing me to leave.
This has been the most disappointing travel experience of my life. šŸ™
