very good  Time owned: more than 12 months
Good small ham shack I operated from in July 2010. Some corrosion on the external coax connectors that were cleaned, took some time to get straight the right antenna coax inside and the 160/80 vertical had some modifications. Good pileups, especially on WARC bands and to JA and EU on 40 and 30m CW. The regular quarters were clean with full kitchen and A/C, and the caretaker was VERY nice and helpful. The main "town" Placencia is a good 1 1/2 hour walk or 25 minutes by peddle bike. The airport is just 3 minutes away. "Cabbies" are easily found and you can arrange a set time to go to town every night for dinner. Foodmarts well stocked with food and "liquids". Local bars downtown, quaint, small and friendly bartenders looking for a nice tip. Overall, a fairly nice experience and I would go back. I renewed my V31YY license for this year too. Many flights from Belize City to Placencia every day, about a 45 minute flight. The Hamshack compound is a 5 minute walk to the Caribbean across the street. Advice, get some mosquito wipes or spray since they come out if the weather is rainy, not too bad during the day. Keep the A/C on at night helps!! hi Have fun!
