Venti Non-Fat Latte with 2% Foam? Flight Cafe Opens in San Pedro

It’s hard to imagine the world without Starbucks.  For years it was my morning…and often afternoon ritual.  The uber-efficient barristas who remember your order after one visit, the strange Starbucks vocabulary (they taught me the word barrista!), the fixings bar with nutmeg, heavy cream and Sugar In the Raw.  I can easily conjure up theKeep reading »

A Myriad of Meals: Lunch Options on Ambergris Caye

Lunch on Ambergris Caye Belize is the biggest meal of the day. Here are just some ideas for GREAT places to eat.

I think that America has it all wrong.  I spent the first 30-ish years of my life eating my largest meal in the evening – dinner or, if you are from the south USA, supper.   Lunch was a quicky…a grab-on-the-run, a filler meal. True to my American nature, I didn’t think much about itKeep reading »

New Haven-Style Pizza Right Here in Belize?

If you have been reading my blog even sporadically, you know that I love San Pedro’s hot spot and only food park, The Truck Stop. Not only do they have delicious food and ICE CREAM but a happening bar and lots and lots of fun events from the monthly Farmers’ Market to Wednesday movies underKeep reading »

How Does a Travel Agent See Belize? A Look at a Recent “FAM Trip”

I LOVE to research a trip on the internet…to thumb through travel guides…it has never once occurred to me to visit a travel agent.   And while the industry has consolidated considerably since people have been so easily able to buy airline tickets and hotel rooms on the world wide web, it still remains theKeep reading »

San Ignacio, Cayo, Belize: The Changes, The Restaurants and My Guesthouse

San Ignacio is a central hub for travelers crossing Belize – from the Cayes, from Tikal Maya Site in Guatemala.  It’s THE central kick-off spot for “jungle activities” – caving, cave tubing, zip lining, hiking, and more. I haven’t walked through the town that slopes down a steep hill to the Macal River in almostKeep reading »
