Instagram Sunday: Snapshots From My Week on The Island

HOT.  It’s been one hot week in Belize.  And this weekend is the last big hurrah before the island settles down into the slower season…September, October and November.  A slow season punctuated by two HUGE festivals in San Pedro – September celebrations/Independence Day and Halloween.

party like a rockstar

Both A BIG DEAL on Ambergris Caye…and with these lower airfares and the “Southwest effect” – great times to visit.

So heat, the Costa Maya Festival (we will hear more about that from Correspondent Fin tomorrow) and a fishing tournament…this has been the week in San Pedro.

I need to start with this Instagram photo that is not mine since it’s just good stuff.

Someone lovely, that I met over twitter, left me a stack of AUGUST 2015 magazines at the Mata Chica Resort lobby.IMG_3908

A bench in the lobby.  Magazines = hours, if not days, of bliss.

And then at the end of the week, I’m headed to the US…and another island.  Beaver Island.  I’ll be reporting back.

  • Great photos all! So, who do you send the postcards to? I honestly didn’t know anyone sent postcards anymore. Used to always send ’em on trips, but they are so stinkin’ slow, and everyone is on Facebook or at least has email these days, even my 80-year old mother. Safe travels to the US!

    • Belize Blog

      I put on facebook…maybe last week? That I would send them out if people sent me their addresses…I am working on my 45 requests now. It’s so fun to get a postcard. Plus I have them…and it costs 30 cent BZD. Just gotta get writing!

      • Ah, I must have missed that. It will be interesting to see how long it takes for them to arrive at the recipient’s addresses! That is cheap, though, so fun to do!

        i want one…..
