“Kathleen, I wanted to tell you that I and my significant other are going to Belize this April. And all because we won a week’s stay at Exotic Caye Beach Resort at your annual Retire Overseas Conference in Orlando last year! Yeah! So thank you.

You could rent a car in Belize City, drive yourself out to Cayo, and then return the car in Belize City at the end of your stay. Or you could fly to Cayo and rent a car in San Ignacio.
Enjoy your trip!
