Where on Ambergris Caye, Belize is the Scoop?

How well do YOU know Ambergris Caye?  Here are some photos around San Pedro town and north of town…can you identify where they are?  Some are not easy.  But all answers are at the end of the post.

But first, an update on the weather.  Late summer is most definitely here.  The wind has died down…the sun is hot.   While it hasn’t been raining much yet, heavy clouds sit in the sky threatening passing showers.Where-In-Ambergris1 (1)

I call it two shirt weather.  If you are out and about, you are going to be changing your shirt 2-3 times a day.  Keep hydrated all!

8.  You might find this one strange but I PROMISE, this dog can be found here 22 hours a day.  He is usually fast alseep with his head on the curb but once in a while…

They also have a pretty sweet bike rack.

2.  The two white adirondack chairs overlook the lagoon at one of the prettiest spots to watch the sunset – the small dock at Cocotal Inn and Cabanas.

4.  Mini Tienda Katherin on Back Street – where you go for anything you just CAN NOT FIND.  Thread…bandanas…a mop bucket…shot glasses.  The rolls of vinyl displayed in the front are “marley” – a non-adhesive floor covering.  It’s an old tradition here to replace you curtains and marley for the holidays.

5.  The letter B is part of the gorgeous mural painted by the Belizean artist Papo at the Truck Stop – about 1 mile north on Ambergris Caye.  It’s a favorite spot to take pictures and to have a drink.

Watch this video of the artist and the painting of the mural.  It’s fantastic.

6.  The saw blade KEEP OUT sign is north of town about 1 mile.  On a gorgeous sea to lagoon lot that is kept beautifully groomed.

7.  Beautiful bananas are at…

Right here.  Always here….Where4 (6)

9.  On the road going north at about Mile 2.5 is the beachfront home Blue Dolphin.  And on the road…this blue dolphin.  Always reminds me of mini-golf and the Jersey Shore.

    # 5 is easy…. it’s at that that damn ”truck stop”…the business that was allowed to be built in my residential neighbourhood.<=== humbug.
    #7 is eddie's banana pile.. at victor's fruit and veg stand.

    • You are lucky the waste treatment center for the north isn’t going near you too.

      • SPmQQse

        i’m lucky that a lot of crap di goan….isn’t near my house , indeed.
        YET…. the ridiculously, badly built joke, the northern SP super hywy…is bad/nuff….
        but the dredging of all the lagoons from grand Caribe south….to reef village, [or what ever that fiasco is now called]….will be starting very soon…..that, will be hundreds and hundreds of acres , of lagoons destroyed.
        the politicians and foreign developers…. have no shame.
