Over 13 years ago, I moved from the “City that Never Sleeps” to a sleepy fishing village in the Caribbean – from Manhattan, NY, USA to Ambergris Caye, Belize. Sure…technically I just switched one island for another…oddly, they are similar in area, in physical size… but GOD LORD! they are polar opposites in so many ways.
Slightly different skylines.
Yesterday I was thinking about what drew me to Belize on my very first trip. And why, after one week visiting in late summer of 2006 with a girlfriend, was a SOOO smitten with Ambergris Caye?
I’ve written before about the reasons that I think people should visit Belize. And some of them…certainly the great weather and the beautiful sea and reef were the main reasons that we booked the trip.
I think I’ve got another blog post in each one of these topics. And as many of you know, I wrote a whole book on how to enjoy many of these things.
The blog post series will give me something to do for the rest of the year! PLEASE let me know what you think.
What HOOKED you on Belize and had you dreaming of returning after your first visit? Let me know in the comments below…so we’ve got them all in one place.
Here’s the post – so you can take a look for yourself…I got so many great detailed responses. Thank you all for brightening my week AND helping me write my post.
