    "Fish sweets"

    by Martinewezel Updated Jan 11, 2012

    "Save our injured wildlife", a resourceful idea. I saw this fish food dispenser in the Historic Seaport at the end of Margaret Street, where tons of fish gather off the Half Shell Raw Bar restaurant. They didn’t look injured to me. Quite the contrary ;-)

    Getting money from an ATM....

    by mafootje Updated Jul 25, 2007

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Getting money from an ATM. That's something that can cost you money. Depending on where you get it. I've seen ATM's that would charge up to 4 dollar if you'd use them. Especially try to avoid the small ATM's which you can find inside a gas station or a store, the fees of these machines are usually the highest.

    If you ad up the cost you're own bank will charge you for using an ATM outside the country. When you travel to places regulary you might want to take your money to a bank that isn't charging for the use of ATM's outside your country. Or consider taking a package in which these fees are waived.

    In the Netherlands there are banks which have those packages, there's also on bank that I know of which doesn't charge anything for ATM transactions.

    Unique Suggestions: If you really need to get cash from the ATM take a larger amount, please keep an eye on your money don't get mugged, pick pocketted or lose it.

    Fun Alternatives: You'd be smarter to go to a large shop like K-mart or something and use the cash-back option when buying sometime (for instance some chewing gum :-)). This is free of charge, the only thing you'd pay would be the charges of your own bank. That will save you money you can spend elsewhere.

    Calling home from the US.....

    by mafootje Updated Jul 25, 2007

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Calling home from the US.. There are a few ways to call from the US to your friend and family at home..You can put money in pay-phones, call from your hotel, use your mobile or use a calling card.. You can buy prepaid calling cards at shops, gas stations and newsstands. We us a calling (credit) card it can be used from payphones, private phones and hotel phones (beware most hotels charge you for using their phone even when it's a free number). With this card you call a free number and then your card number after this you can call home at a much nicer rate you would get elsewhere. Just visit Primus.
    The card itself is free no annual fees you'll only pay when you use it

    Unique Suggestions: Be aware that the card now has a Payphone fee which will cost you $0,99 per call. So if possible call from the hotel (and check if they don't charge you also) to avoid this fee.

    Oh and if anyone knows a cheaper way to call from the US to the Netherlands please let me know !

    Calling home...avoid the payphones.

    Fill up your tank with gas....

    by mafootje Updated Jul 25, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I wouldn't do that here, certainly now the prices are high everywhere. For some strange reason prices of gas in Key Largo are much cheaper as they are in Key West or even in Miami.

    So when driving in to the Keys fill up your car in Key Largo you should be able to get up and down the Keys with a full tank.

    But when in doubt if you would make it back it's also a good thing to fill up your car just a little bit.

    You could also check the most recent prices at this website.

    Look out ! don't pay to much for gas.

    Captain Bob's Grill-Steak is not recommended

    by grandmaR Updated Mar 13, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Although the billboard outside of Captain Bob's Grill-Steak has attractive prices, the food is suspect, service is not attentive, and Captain Bob glowers at the diners from his corner.

    We got suckered in twice (a year apart. -The first time it wasn't so bad - a bit ordinary but not terrible).

    I talked to folks on the Dry Tortugas ferry and he said they wouldn't feed that food to their cat, and that the service was terrible.

    Unique Suggestions: This is not the restaurant on Front Street (which I have no experience with) it is at 2200 N. Roosevelt

    Fun Alternatives: There are plenty of other good restaurants to chose from.

    Dolphin watching? Don't believe it! :-)
    At least we didn't see any, however they were promised.

    Unique Suggestions: We saw flying fish instead. A consolation prize, but ok.
