I plan to stay in Dangriga next June. I will be staying in a cabana on the beach. Is there a store I can get a taxi to go get food...water...sunblock...bug spray...etc? I will only have carry on luggage, and the limits on liquids/lotions will have me needing to get some of that when I get there. Recommendations? Thanks!

Have you used google maps with a satellite image to look at what is near? I found the rental and it actually looks to be well over a mile and a half from the south edge of Dangriga. The map below shows the route - you can zoom in on the property and on the town to see where the restaurants and stores are.

I asked in response to another of your posts if you planned to have a rental car. I wouldn't be interested in such an isolated spot without transportation easily available to access the cultural and natural wonders of Belize. Just my 2 cents' worth (4 cents BZD).

Here's a link to the map - let me know if this doesn't work for you. Google maps - Dangriga area

This is my first trip to Belize, and I'm going alone. I'll take in the culture and wonders next go around. This purpose of this trip is purely some solitude...getting away from it all. There's a caretaker living behind the cabana who, I understand, is available as a taxi driver for cabana residents. I still need to verify that. Thank you for the link!

Dangriga has grocery stores and restaurants. You can buy everything you need there. I'm not sure about the availability of sunblock & bug insect repellent because I've never tried to buy them in Dangriga.

Depending on how much water you drink, look into buying water in the large 25 litre container. You'll have to pay a deposit on the container which you get back when you return it (maybe the caretaker has one?), and you have to carry it. Maybe easier to buy the 1 or 2 litre containers.

Re: sunblock and bug repellent, I'd bring that with you because it's not all created equal and it ages out; you might be able to buy it in Dangriga but I wouldn't count on it working as well as good quality, recently-produced stuff from home.

I travel carryon only, too, and prioritize those things and a few 1st aid items in my quart-sized ziplock bag; easy to carry enough face-quality sunblock, body block, and Ultrathon or Sawyers Time-Release Deet bug repellent for 3-4 weeks and plan to buy shampoo and toothpaste there. You can buy it in larger sizes and take it down in nalgene leak-proof travel bottles or the like. The little one use packets of repellent with deet are handy, too - never be without them in your purse or backpack so you don't get caught without block if you forget to apply it or don't see a need at the time you're heading out (and they don't need to be in your ziplock).

Sounds like a great place for solitude. Enjoy!

With food items in grocery stores, it's always a good idea to check the "use by" or "best before" dates.

Indeed. I'm pretty good about that. Can you get ice at the store like you can in the states?

Maybe not at every store, but ice should be available somewhere.
