More Christmas in San Pedro? Ok! The Truck Stop & Belize Chocolate Company

“I don’t know HOW you do Christmas in Belize, I KNOW it wouldn’t feel like the holidays to me!”. It’s a statement that I hear from friends in the states.  My response?

I don’t need to be freezing cold to feel merry.  In fact, watching a boat parade in flip flops, eating lobster on Christmas eve and enjoying all the holiday lights without my car heater blasting feel pretty good to me.

Ambergris Caye does Christmas beautifully.  PLUS, I don’t have to do a last minute search for a parking space at that JAM PACKED mall because I accidentally bought nephew Stewie 4 gifts and nephew Louie only 2.

Warm weather + lots of non-stressful Christmas cheer = my perfect Christmas.

Here are two more spots in town making the holidays more beautiful.

Belize Chocolate Company…stop by in the air con and have a hot chocolate if you are DYING for that cold weather feel.

The Truck Stop did an AMAZING job…and continues to do one…celebrating the holidays.

This week’s movies are Wednesday:  “Love Actually”  SIGH…and Friday:  “Elf”.  AND a Farmer’s Market this Saturday noon to 2pm!  Love it.

This past weekend, the hosted a craft fair and I took 3 pictures.  Lame but true.

There were TONS of golf carts parked all the way down the road.

Is there still a TV station that plays that all day on Christmas?  Love it.

The tree lit, everyone went to have icy cocktails and ice cream.  It is Christmas in Belize after all.

        Remember because it is a west coast channel it takes a while for their day to begin.

    The liberal global warming crowd still thinks everyone who lives in the states is looking for a parking place in the snow. Lmao.

    • Science is liberal? Global warming doesn’t just mean getting warmer – though this year has been warmest on record – it means vast change in all weather patterns. The artic is ridiculously warm. Snow in your backyard doesn’t mean there is no global warming. LMAO.

    There is a chocolate company where you are, I’d thought the climate would be
    counter- productive.
