Going to My Dentist on Ambergris Caye: Beach Pics
Okay, okay, OKAY! I know that technically I am the SANPEDROscoop and some of you just want to see and hear Ambergris Caye. Fried chicken in Belize City? Art in Placencia? Pffft.
I guess it makes some sense. Ambergris Caye was, after all, just named TRIPADVISOR’S Travelers Choice BEST ISLAND IN THE WORLD. For the 2nd year in a row.
So let me show you what it’s like to travel to a dentist appointment in the great place on earth.
My dentist is located about 4 miles north of town, just south of Las Terrazas Resort, so I need to hop on the Coastal Express Water Taxi.
2:30pm we were on our way north.
We made a few stops at some resorts (sometimes to drop off a kid coming home from school or just someone’s lunch) and, then, at the packed Palapa Bar.
My boat dropped me off at my dentist’s residence/rental home Blue Dolphin to continue on north.
The larger house that is available for vacation rentals.
And then to the side and towards the back, my dentist.
Joan and Mark are from Minnesota but have owned property (including the Conch Shell Inn) and have been coming to San Pedro forever.
I passed under the buoy tree and the little “parking lot”…
Thru the front door into the office which is as modern as any dentist’s office that I’ve been to.
I’ve been going to Dr. Mark since I first arrived in San Pedro – introduced by some friends of mine. There are actually quite a few dentists in San Pedro to choose from…but this is about pictures not useful information!
But I will add that I have no cavities. Phew.
Apparently you only need to floss the day before you go to the dentist. Woo hoo!
I finished my exam, the dental assistant made the remaining patients margaritas and fresh coconut waters and we waited for the boat.
Another gorgeous February day on the best island in the world.
