Gorgeous Easter Weather is Here – Surveying for The Continuation of The Road & Price Reduction at Xaman ‘Ek

After yesterday’s somewhat controversial post (I’ve added some additional information for further search engine use), I thought I would take a walk yesterday and take a few pictures.  The weather is breezy – the Easter Winds are here! – but gorgeous and sunny.  And today, Holy Thursday, banks and government offices start closing down early and all of Belize heads to the beach.

Up at Rojo Beach Bar…Nuggets the bird.


And just a beautiful day.

Beautiful golden coconuts.

This house is immaculately groomed always…

Not so immaculately cared for is the old Xaman ‘Ek – that also housed a Jambel’s Restaurant for a while.  The price has recently been reduced to land value only.


The dock had crumbled…


The pool and the palapas a bit derelict.




I made an about face at the lovely Portofino Resort.

IMG_9232Later…I took a ride back down to town.  The surveys are placing pegs for the continuation of the road (which now stops at Belizean Shores).  There were stakes up to  Rojo and Mata Chica and beyond…soon we will have a road all the way up north.  Honestly…i never would have believed it.

IMG_9195Remember – tomorrow is Good Friday and many spots are closed.  No alcohol is sold or served anywhere in Belize until midnight.  AND THEN…the partying begins.

Happy Happy Happy Easter Weekend.  I will be reporting back early and often 🙂

    With respect to alcohol, I thought those resorts/hotels holding a “hotel license” with the town liquor board could sell to “bonafide guerts”………..

      I don’t think that is the case…for the past few years – with Mayor Danny’s administration, I believe it’s been a bit more strict. Belize law says NONE. You can order a smoothie and then sneak rum into it in your room. Or just keep ordering a glass of ice?

    We were suppose to be there last year over the Easter Holiday weekend, but had to leave early. Will not be back until after Easter this year. One day soon….

    Also, do you know what property used to be just N. of Captain Morgan’s Retreat? It appeared vacant and run down when we were there last year. I will post a pic or two I took.
