I started blogging in June of 2011! And during the last five PLUS years, I have just over 1500 posts – some that have been read tens of thousands of times (like those on how I moved here) and about my (very calculated) run-in with the TV Show “The Bachelor” and others that well…are best left to the deep black hole that is the internet.
Well…we speak English. But that’s not even one of my reasons.
Food, exploring, outside movie night over the lagoon.
Oh…and these guys.
Our shore front is lined with docks and I am a HUGE fan of just rolling out a towel and sunning, swimming and sunning again on the worn pier. But we DO have beaches. Here are some of the prettiest on Ambergris Caye.
You might not know Belizean cuisine now but you will quickly learn that there is delicious stewed chicken, rice & beans on every menu. From black soup to fry jacks, here are the foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner that you MUST try.
A GREAT idea to taste up to 8 in one afternoon or evening is Belize Food Tours. Check out my lunch time extravaganza hitting 6 favorite restaurants with them.
As a SKY DIVING operation gets ready to open here on the island, here are my 8 craziest adventures in Belize. The chances of me skydiving are ZERO but I did drop into a black hole and trek at least a mile underground to see a Mayan skeleton.
Two totally different trips…I’m not sure which is more awesome. I LOVED visiting Half Moon Caye and can’t wait to go back for camping.
This is a must, must, must do. Many know not-so-Secret Beach and that is a great look at “the other side of Ambergris Caye”. But an even better trip is a charter boat or a trip with YOLO to the leeward side. Spend the afternoon lounging on a sandbar.
Trip to Hol Chan, Shark Ray Alley and Caye Caulker
It’s absolutely unheard of to visit Ambergris Caye and NOT snorkel Hol Chan Marine Reserve and Shark Ray Alley. Total madness. I absolutely love doing it on a catamaran – Seaduced by Belize is absolutely fabulous.
It’s so lovely to nap on the way back.
Either way, each stop is absolutely fab.
Shopping in Belize: My Favorite Souvenirs on Ambergris Caye I’m no shopper but some people expect SOMETHING! Here are my favorite shopping spots in San Pedro.
And if you find yourself too busy during your vacation, you can pick up some last minute things at the airport on the way home.
There you go. And if you don’t want to take my word for it…here are some writers that loved their trips to Ambergris Caye.

New York Magazine “Go Adventuring in Ambergris Caye” April 13, 2016
