Belize is a small country with a handful of main roads – the Northern Highway, the Western Highway, the Southern Highway and the gorgeous Hummingbird over the Maya Mountains.
Here is a view from the Sleeping Giant Resort – you can see the highway on the left hand side of the picture.
If you only have 15 minutes to stop…Why the rush? Make sure to walk down to the Blue Hole. Crystal clear cold water is perfect to cool down.
Next stop: Kropf’s Bakery.
A very small Mennonite shop selling cookies and some pastries. A bathroom break. Though on our trip – both bathrooms were Out of Order.
Let’s keep moving.
Pair her $2bzd delicious gooey tamale with the fruity fresh HOT habanero sauce and take a seat on the wooden bench. Simple and delicious.
Miss Bertha would be proud of her family.
This is a MUST STOP.
The next place (where we stopped on the way home) was Cafe Casita del Amor at Mile 16.5 in the Steadfast Community.
A gothic cottage? This place is both odd and beautiful. We were greeted very warmly by the gentleman behind the counter. He appears to be a bit of a one man show. Things move slowly but the coffee is good and the atmosphere…unexpected.
And then we continued on…
The giant vats of habanero mash.
And her newest products just unveiled about a month ago. SMOKED habanero. Chipotle, the smoked jalapeno, is just so…2010.
This mild version is DELICIOUS and the bottle is gorgeous.
And then touted as the HOTTEST Marie Sharp yet. The SMOKING MARIE. I didn’t even dare taste it.
