It is literally cheaper and faster to book a group for various Belize experiences, with the one stop shopping, via Tina. She has the communications, money and organizing ability to make a third world expedition work. References supplied if necessary!) "Tina grew up on Caye Caulker, but she has also spent two years booking/organizing wildlife safaris in Kenya's huge gameparks in Africa. She also has one year as DiveMaster on a diveboat out of St.Martin in the Eastern Caribbean Islands. Her father, Cap'n Ray Auxillou started the tourist business on the barrier reef island in 1964, when the colony of British Honduras as it was called then, was known as one of the four corners of the world. Not on the way to anyplace, nor coming from anyplace! It has only changed slightly.
