I've spent a few weeks non-chartering hanging out at my brother in law's out of Ambergris Caye (northern Belize) with day trips including to Placenia to eyeball the area for possible chartering (BVI is getting old already).
If Rice and Beans with Chicken(?) is on the menu do it yourself - I'd say spend the money and have them do the provisioning for several reasons:
1) known quality
2) they do the work, who wants to go shopping on vacation, browse yes, for survival no
3) helps plan meals better when you know what you have (based on the order) - the galley slave doesn't have to ration and plan, it's her vacation too
Figure you are on the boat for the entire time with no outside resources, stock accordingly. If you run across a eatery (I hesitate to call them resturants) enjoy it. I had some real good food traveling around and eating with the locals. Just be ready to expand your horizons on what is, and isn't good eats.
Have fun, write up the trip and post it when done.
