Hurricane Felix is gaining strength and making a beeline for Belize, where several lodges narrowly escaped the wrath of Dean. (According to reports, Dean demolished Paradise Lodge, which plans to rebuild and reopen in mid-2008.) Felix, now a category 5 storm, is tracking south of where Dean made landfall, which is better news for Yucatan lodges but not such good news for Belize. Current models place Felix off the northern coast of Honduras on Tuesday.
