Extravagant Wine Pairing Dinner at the Always Delicious Casa Picasso

Belize is best known for our locally made rums and for the national beer – Belikin.  Wine is a relatively new import.  When I first moved to Belize, the selection was very limited and very expensive (even a bottle of Pina Colada flavored Boone’s is often priced over $20bzd – clearly VERY distressing to my upscaleKeep reading »

Ambergris Caye Humane Society’s Monthly Cook-Off: Are YOU Man Enough?

The SAGA Humane Society is a group close to my heart.  They provided the first real medical care for the animals, both pets and strays, on the island over 10 years ago.  They are working hard, solely through volunteers and donations to not only provide care for pets, but to educate the population, deal with problemKeep reading »

An Afternoon At Grand Caribe And Palapa Bar by Day And By Night

Yesterday, I headed up north on Ambergris Caye to lounge about with some visiting friends.  These guys are planning to retire and move to the island next year but this was just a family vacation and I always jump at the chance to poke around resorts. Particularly those I haven’t spent much time visiting.  This time itKeep reading »

Barbecued Pork Two Ways or How To Ship A Pig’s Head in Belize

Fair warning:  If seeing the head of a cooked barbecued pig makes you squeamish, this is not the post for you. Pork, I think, is Belize’s most delicious meat.  When I first had a thick cut pork chop in San Pedro, it was a bit of a revelation.   One, because I had been a veganKeep reading »

THE HOTEL RE-Opens on Ambergris Caye, Belize

“The Hotel” was built as a high-end resort and has been in the works for about five years.  It is located just over the bridge on a very pretty lagoon side piece of property and has stunning ocean and lagoon/sunset views.  Two years ago, it was almost complete.  Molly Malone’s, an Irish bar (the ownerKeep reading »

Sunday at the Gorgeous Rojo Lounge on North Ambergris Caye, Belize

The weather on Ambergris Caye continues to be beautiful.  Warm (and getting warmer), windy and lots and lots of sun.  Apparently, for the past few weeks, the terribly beach-chic Rojo Lounge has been opening on Sundays for a bit of a Sunday fun day celebration.  (Rojo is a favorite on all sorts of international best barKeep reading »

Blue Skies, Blue Water, A Friday Afternoon in Caye Caulker

I am sounding a bit like a skipping record and am WAY over using the word GORGEOUS.  Perhaps I need to switch things up a bit word-wise.  But the weather in Belize right now is just perfection.  Yesterday my friend and I took an early afternoon boat ride over to Caye Caulker. Everyone seemed toKeep reading »

Would They, Should They…Kill Carnaval On Ambergris Caye?

Greetings from Merida. Carnaval 2014 in San Pedro, Belize is coming to an end.  I was there for the first day (Sunday) of painting and comparsas but missed Monday and Tuesday to fly with Tropic Air on the inaugural flight from Belize to Merida, Mexico. Carnaval is great fun.  So unique to the island andKeep reading »

Sailing and Dining on the Rum Punch 2 Never Disappoints

Yesterday was a GORGEOUS day.  In fact, February has been an absolutely gorgeous month.  And that is just how it should be.  Lots of sun, getting a bit warmer (no blanket needed at night anymore) and breezy.  Perfect for all things.  But especially perfect for sailing. A bunch of fun friends were headed out onKeep reading »
