This walk is taking longer to blog about than it was to walk but I took SO many pictures since I have been such an infrequent visitor to these foreign climes. Part One, I barely budged traveling from Costa Maya Resort (Mile 6.5) to Portofino (Mile 6 North). Part Two took me from Portofino to Rojo to Los Encantos (Mile 4.5). Let’s get moving. I passed a very active little dive shop but I didn’t see a name a the resort. Just down the beach is Rendezvous Restaurant and Winery. The only one on the island. A bit further is Belizean Shores. And then in the lot is a turbo sized construction project teaming with workers. All of the rebar is almost like a sculpture…almost. And I would imagine this is only the beginning…the pool at the Venezia will be quite impressive. Huge. A bit of Venice right here in Belize. Next up is Coco Beach with some very impressive pools of their own. Complete with a rock formation water slide and swim up bar.
Next is one of the most intriguing properties on the island, probably my favorite. I wrote a post about Essene Way last year. A wedding chapel? Lots of concrete angels? A huge whale that looks like it belongs on a Jersey Shore putt-putt course? Trust me, it’s interesting stuff.
It’s also housing for quite a few people. I resisted the urge to walk around…there is a boat to catch. I passed Captain Morgan’s and then Belizean Cove Estates. I can see why the TV show “The Bachelor” used this location a few years back. No bachelorettes lounging about today.
Next up Capricorn Restaurant. Not time to stop!
Don’t stop now! Next is El Pescador Lodge and Villas.
Aji Tapas Bar & Restaurant is a very cute spot with some excellent happy hour prices.
I thought I’d give Coastal Express water taxi a call to have them pick me up here at Grand Caribe. So I settled down to wait in the sun…
A girl’s got to amuse herself somehow…
