A Gorgeous Day To Head North on Ambergris Caye


Yesterday was another beautiful day in a string of them we’ve been enjoying in Belize.  At some point, they just stick and rain become a thing of memory.  By May or June, many start to bemoan their wilting gardens and their empty cisterns… But not now.  The puddles are still drying up, the mosquitos areKeep reading »
