Why YOU Should Visit Belize in April and May

April and May can be some pretty great months to visit Belize.  The Spring Break rush has started to thin out.  The peak airline prices of December and US Presidents’ Week are starting to come down a bit.  And the wetter season hasn’t started yet so the average day is rain-free and warm.  On theKeep reading »

New Belikin Store Opens In San Pedro

We’ve been watching it come together for the last few months.  The store front just across from the Tropic Air terminal, in downtown San Pedro, transform into The Belikin Store.  Hopefully selling all the Belikin merchandise that until now, wasn’t available to the public.  Like the Belikin bandanas…and the Belikin signs. Belize lovers and manKeep reading »

Bacalar Chico & A Trip All the Way Around Magical Ambergris Caye

Ambergris Caye is a shockingly huge, diverse island.  It’s over 25 miles long, the largest island in Belize…it’s 5 miles wide in some parts.   On the south end is San Pedro town and most of the population.  And in the north?  Jungle, forest, lagoon, manatees…big cats, deer, parrots and a surprisingly large number of MayaKeep reading »

Gorgeous March Weather – Boca Del Rio, San Pedro

Ok…so I’m kinda stuck on repeat right now but I seriously can. not. get. over. it.  This late March weather is glorious.  Glorious for fly fishing, for diving, for swimming, for being in Belize.  Sunny, warm and mild breezes – not the March Blow we usually get. Earlier this week, I set out to visitKeep reading »

Looking for the Yellow Headed Parrots on Cayo Frances Lagoon

Even if you don’t think you give a hoot about birds or plants, spring is a pretty cool time of year on Ambergris Caye. Along with the influx of birds from the north – and the trees and plants blossoming, we are enjoying such a ridiculously gorgeous late winter weather.  Low humidity – it plummetedKeep reading »

Spring’s Here! My March Week on Ambergris Caye

There has been nothing out of the ordinary about my week on Ambergris Caye. (Way to start a gripping blog post, Rebecca!  Pulitzer Prize material.)

Marco Gonzalez Maya Site on the Southern End of Ambergris Caye

Marco Gonzalez Reserve is the only official Maya site on Ambergris Caye.   The location is relatively remote – 5 miles south of San Pedro town and set back deep into the mangroved lagoon.   It was “discovered” just 35 years ago – in 1984 – when a young local man, Marco Gonzalez, led two visiting archaeologistsKeep reading »

A March Tuesday on Ambergris Caye

It’s breezy, warm, humid March on Ambergris Caye.  The “March Blow” is blowing (just one of the seasons that we have on the island) – and the sargasso is coming in.

Carnaval in San Pedro and Court in Belize City

Oy yesterday was a long, long long long day.  An early morning golf cart ride to town, 1.5 hour water taxi to Belize City for a 10:30am court date.  It is the very first stage in the Cayo Rosario matter.  And I’ll leave it at that. Well…I’ll share one of the posts I wrote aboutKeep reading »

HOLY CRAP!  Can you believe that it is March?  Actually…can you believe that it is 2019?!?! It’s been a HOT breezy gorgeous week on our island – and I took lots of snap shots all over the place.

Fresh Noodle Shop, Ramen 501, Opens In San Pedro

It seems as though a new bar or restaurant opens on Ambergris Caye every week. But I was particularly excited when I saw a post on Facebook announcing that Chef Toshiya – who has a Japanese restaurant at Mahogany Bay Village – was coming to the Poco Loco Food Court on Front Street in SanKeep reading »

Update On the Road North

Away from San Pedro town, Ambergris Caye has one main road that runs north to south. Just a few years ago, much of it was just a path – one that turned to mud in the rainy season. In 2014, the paving began – and when completed, it stretched from the bridge to Mile 4Keep reading »
