Seven years in Belize and I’d never properly stopped in Orange Walk – Belize’s 4th largest town. I have a friend, Kevin, who grew up here and raves about it like many do their home towns. I know that they do the biggest, bestest September 21st Independence Parade and…well…I’ve always meant to attend. I know they are responsible for a good sized piece of the country’s GDP with the loads of cane and sugar production.
AND, even if many tourists don’t know that it is in Orange Walk, Lamanai Mayan Ruins are a hugely popular place to visit. It’s an amazing trip.
I also know that Orange Walkers are SERIOUS about their tacos. Orange Walk or “Suga City” tacos are a brand in themselves. SO…it’s time to visit this mysterious district.
Who ever said that you can’t eat for cheap in Belize? They were delicious…but the best thing EVER? I’m not willing to go there yet.
I walked to go find my hotel. The Hotel De La Fuente (some of the best internet service in Belize if you are wondering…)
The Town Hall is so nice and colorful.
A town clock. Starting to think that are standard issue in Belize. This one is pretty to me.
There is a town plaza or square…very Mexican.
And…WHAT’S THIS? FREE Wi-Fi. Wow.
So…I must keep this short. I still have work to do. I need to find the very best tacos AND I need to know what the name Orange Walk means.
UNTIL then, please please please vote for my cheese picture so that I can go to learn to make Cheese at the GORGEOUS Caves Branch Lodge in Cayo. Here is the link: If you can…would you mind…voting to send me to Ian Andersons? Thanks so much. Just gotta LIKE and then vote. http://bit.ly/18HgKBl
I’ll leave you with this very odd sign. I am TEMPTED to buy some Windex and cheap towels and set up right next to him. I’ll clean the headlights for $8bzd each.
