San Pedro, Ambergris Caye

I just read in one of the travel guides you can't wear shorts in town, is this correct? I can't imagine with the heat you have to wear pants, etc. Is is appropiate to wear shorts for shopping and going to dinner at some of the restaurants? I know for some of them will wear a sundress but always??? Let me know, and thanks ahead of time.

I haven't worn anything but shorts, maybe the occasional pair of capris when it's cool, since we got here the first week of January.

I know there are some cities in Central America where shorts may not be appropriate, but, San Pedro Town is definitely not one of them.

Just don't wear your bikini without a cover up in town. With a light wrap it is fine. shorts even at Rojo!

Yea, one year I went so far as to be put on a bra, since I had to go to the bank.

I think I was the only one in line that had on shoes.......

Wow, thanks so much for all of your comments. I am thrilled as I just couldn't beleive you couldn't wear shorts in town as laid back as San Pedro is. I will definitely write my source and let them know they need to do better research.

Thanks again,

When I go to the cayes, I don't even take shoes. Leave them in the car. They let you ride the water taxi barefoot.
