    What in heavens was she doing on that stretch of road alone??? Cruising for a bruising perhaps? So sad when people choose to ignore common sense of safety first and go out of their way to put themselves in harms way.

    Kay says “cruising for a bruising” as if it is the fault of the tourist. Excuse me but last I checked we should have a right to travel wherever we want to go and to have people to protect us (the police etc). Put the blame where the blame belongs on the rapist. Not the victim. This ridiculous, uneducated way of thinking is why they cannot get a guilty verdict for rape victims. Too often people blame the victim.

    Kay, the woman was riding her bike, she should be able to do that. You are blaming the victim here. She did not go out of her way to put herself in harms way, shall we start telling all the tourists that they cannot go anywhere alone in the country of Belize, Im sure that would be good for tourism. I agree women should take precautions especially in a foreign country and should not go alone at night but this woman was riding her bike during the day. Crime in Belize needs to be handled better.

    We have also cycled trough Belize. It was not a good experience, even though we were not robbed (but cheated all the time). We have cycled through 20+ countries in the Americas and Belize was the worst with regards to danger and respect.

    It is a beautiful country, but the crime is insane for such a small place. Don’t blame a cyclist that she wants to visit your country, blame your countrymen for being rapists and robbers.
