Bridge in Serious State of Disrepair

It has become increasingly obvious to all that our bridge is not being properly maintained.

If the town council do not start looking after this which is one of their serious income producers. They will have more complaints than they ever dreamed of. Like it or not it is now used by 500 plus children that cross twice a day to go to the Holy Cross school. It is used by all the construction workers and these could number over a 1000 plus it used by tourists which are the lifeblood of the island.

We at the Ambergris Daily beseech the town council to get off their bottoms and do their collective jobs, especially in the case of the bridge. Can anyone believe that we may have to go back to the days of the pull ferry.

Sports Report-

It has been pointed out to the Ambergris Daily that since we have been reporting on Arsenal Football Club that they have lost every game that they have played.

We humbly apologise to the millions of Arsenal supporters around the world and take full blame for the defeats that the mighty reds have suffered and will not be writing about them anymore.

Joe Parker from Idaho

This person sent the most disgusting and abusive email that the Ambergris Daily has ever had the misfortune to read. He works in in or at Alert Automotive in Coeur D Alene in Idaho.

The email has been turned over to the authorities and the immigration department are awaiting Mr. Parker’s arrival, when ever that maybe, so that they can interview him.

Weather today March 16 in San Pedro

Looking out of the window there it is cloudy but a lot warmer than yesterday. The sea is calm so it is perfect for diving. We expect the sun to break out in the afternoon but we would like all visitors to be aware that even when the sun is hiding behind the clouds it is still possible and likely to get sun burned. So please remember that if you have fair skin use sun tan lotion.

Sapphire Beach Further Updates

At Ambergris Daily we have been somewhat sceptical about the legitimacy of the Sapphire Beach development. (more…)

Weather Today in San Pedro

The weather today looks and feels like rain. The skies are overcast and the sea is calm which is good for diving but absolutely useless for sunbathing. The weather reports say that it will get better in the afternoon but this writer has his doubts.

House Owners Stopping Locals from using Docks

It is becoming apparent that various people who own houses, and docks facing the reef are refusing to follow the laws of Belize and allow locals,residents and tourists to use their docking facilities. The dock in question is just north of Grand Caribe and next to the restaurant Aji. (more…)

How Many Places are There to Buy Vegetables in San Pedro?

A few weeks ago it was reported in the Ambergris Daily that vegetables here on the island are very expensive compared to the mainland where the price is at least half and then half again if one shops in Mexico or Guatemala.

Well yesterday Charlie and Jambo, travelling in a golf cart, went from the bridge,around front and middle and back streets and then down to Mr. Joe’s which is by Pelican Reef Villas. Between them they counted 35 places to buy vegetables, and they agreed which is highly unusual that they must have missed some as they did not visit San Pedrito or San Juan. This includes supermarkets, street vendors and vegetable shops. There are three new vegetable shops that have just opened on front and middle streets.

For the first time in ages we have more shops selling vegetables than hardware. However as we have a population of 17,500 approx, it means that for every 500 men women and children there is a place to buy vegetables. The Ambergris Daily thinks that this is far too many as it proves that we as residents of the island are paying too much for our produce.

One final point Charlie and Jambo contrary to popular belief do not actually like vegetables.
