I have been planning a snorkeling trip in Belize this summer. After some
search on the internet, I found this resort called Maruba Resort Jungle Spa. They are quite responsive and have answered all my questions.
Now I need to send them a deposit to secure two spaces in June for me and
my wife. I am getting a cold feet since I only met them
through the internet.

Has anyone here used this resort before? If so, would you please
let me know if this company is legit? Will they take my deposit and
simply disappear?

Thank you in advance.

Dear Joe,there are a couple of sites on the internet where you can look up customer
reviews about a company. The largest such site I am aware of is Eopinions
( They have consumer reviews for all kinds of products,
including travel.
Another site that provides extensive coverage on tour operators is
InfoHub ( I just found that Maruba Resort Jungle Spa is
listed there:

Hope this helps.

If you pay by creditcard, your card company should protect your payment. In the UK the card companies clawback any payments for goods or services that are fraudulent. It may be worth checking this side of things out too.
Hope this helps
