Snapshots from this Week – TRAVEL and Gorgeous Chaa Creek in Cayo

My week has been amazing so far.  Traveling out from San Pedro to San Ignacio – from sea to jungle in Belize.

Johnny Cake on the boat to Belize City.

With the cultural melting pot that is Belize on the bus.

Heaven.

Here are some IPhone pictures that I took at Chaa Creek – mostly on Instagram.  I thought I’d share them before I went into da bush.

The pool.

Gorgeous little social flycatcher chicks in a nest RIGHT by the pool…in an umbrella.

Real shoes required for heading over to the kids’ camp.

I have now taken a serious step down in the luxury department but I’m at a LOVELY and cheap Guest House in San Ignacio.

I am off to buy my food and water for my overnight stay in the Chiquibul…sleeping in hammock and hopefully seeing some scarlet macaws.  I figure I need to carb load for this trip.  First stop?  The Ice Cream Shoppe in San Ignacio.

Oh…and I’m sure another trip to the Guava Limb Cafe…the food is too delicious.

* LeBron is not actually in Belize, these are pictures he posted to Instagram from a trip to Hawaii.  But….sigh…it’s fun pretending.

    Great post! I’m eager to here how your Chiquibul trip goes.

      Ha. Me too.

    will Tony Rath be there? If so, tell him howdy! 🙂

    • sanpedroscoop

      No…I don’t think so. Would be great though. The amount that I know about what is happening over the next 2 days is shockingly close to zero. Le Bron James could be in the Chiquibul for all I know. Although Dennis Rodman is more likely.
