Earlier this year, I wrote and then self-published a guidebook to Ambergris Caye, Belize – the type of Belize travel guide that I would want when visiting…and it also includes 9 Experiences for a day trip to Caye Caulker….
and it’s FINALLY in softcover form. Well…it has been since last week but I wanted to get it in my own hands to make sure that it was real.
I am shipping a bunch down to Belize for sale here…but it is going to take a while. I hope to have them available by the beginning of December in a few spots around the island.
Jeff’s mom brought down 4 copies just last night and it looks…AMAZING! Way better than I could have imagined.
Here is Why I Think You Should Buy 50 BIG Experiences on Ambergris Caye: A Small Things Guide
Belize is getting more and more well known – and it’s the amazing natural wonders that really hook first-time visitors. The stuff they see on pretty Instagram photos or glossy brochures. The Great Blue Hole. The 2nd Longest Barrier Reef in the World.
But I wanted to write a guidebook, a Belize travel guide that outlines the experiences that made me fall in love with Belize. The ones that I suggest to friends and family when they visit and the things that I still do on a daily basis. I wanted to be specific – where to go, what to order and most importantly, why you will love it. To answer the questions I get every single day through my website.
And throw in some maps, photos, lots of tips and fun trivia nuggets. Stuff like…
My favorite spot for breakfast tacos and what to order. Golf Cart Day Trips. DIY Fly fishing advice from Jeff. Shopping for items you forgot at the ubiquitous Pacas stores (and what IS a pacas store?) Best Rice and Beans that I eat 2 or 3 times a week. Buying local fruits and vegetables. Why you should drink rum and where you can taste some of the best…or why you should pick up hitchhikers (safely!)…
50 Experiences in all…with the things you need to do on a required day trip to Caye Caulker.
My hope: Buy it, read it and use it on your trip to Belize (or even if you live here), make notes, share it and love it. Message me and let me know how it worked for you!
Look for these stickers around town. I’m starting to give them out now.
And about writing a book…if you have always wanted to, go for it!
I TOTALLY get why many people start them and never finish them.
But know that those websites and videos that tout “PASSIVE INCOME!” or “WRITE A BOOK AND START MAKING MONEY IN ONE MONTH!” are doing some EXTREME sugar-coating. EXTREME.
I’ll write more about the process after I get out of “recovery mode”. It might be called “How To Fumble Your Way Thru Writing a Travel Guide” or “How I Got Very Lucky When…”. My rehabilitation period/recovery mode could last anywhere from another few weeks to a few years.
Stay tuned for the next volume.
