Sunday Snapshots at Ak’Bol Eco-Resort and Las Terrazas Resort, North Ambergris Caye

Last night, the wind shifted and the wind started howling from the north.  The last “cold front” of the year?  Perhaps.  The groundhog this morning predicted an early spring. (Though CNN’s Groundhog Day headline is:  “Groundhog predicts early spring. Don’t get too excited, he’s usually wrong“) Personally, I’d love forever-winter in Belize.  The temperature rightKeep reading »

Kelly McGuire Performs at the Opening of a ReBranded Bar in San Pedrito

Every year, about this time, Kelly McGuire, a popular singer songwriter from Texas, USA, rolls into San Pedro, Belize to celebrate his birthday on his very favorite tropical island. I met him over 10 years ago when he performed at the bar I was managing, the Tacklebox…it seems like many lifetimes ago.  And I’ve seenKeep reading »

I’m not even sure I could finish!  The Truck Stop does a ridiculously island-comprehensive tricky gross job!  Take a look.  This is a long one – but it’s worth it.  The clues are super fun, super clever.  Even those who have lived in San Pedro all their lives might get tripped up! The Amazing Race isKeep reading »

Charming Caye Caulker – I Have LOTS More to Do

Silly, SILLY me.  I thought I’d be able to get a thorough read on Caye Caulker in just a few days.  I mean…I’ve been there at least 30 times…maybe more. But rarely overnight. In reality this two night, three day stay helped me get a feel for Caye Caulker but I have SOOOO much moreKeep reading »

Caye Caulker, Belize: A Beauty on a Perfect Day

Caye Caulker – only a 25-minute water taxi ride from San Pedro, Belize – operates at a very different pace.  This island motto – is taken quite seriously… You’ll see the signs around the village and rastas suggest it to me often as I walk a bit too fast. Caye Caulker is ABSOLUTELY beautiful –Keep reading »

Why YOU Should Visit Belize in January

Beach by Estels

Why Belize in January? If you are looking to get away from cold weather, Belize in January is perfect.  In fact, for sun, a light breeze and  slightly cooler nights (think high 70s F), the first few months in Belize are IDEAL.   January through April generally promises the best weather – and it also meansKeep reading »

It’s been a windy, weather-shifting week on Ambergris Caye.  A “cold front” got winds blowing from the northKeep reading »

The 2020 Color of the Year: Belize Blue!

2020 Color of the Year: Belize BLUE! Come see your new favorite color in person...

Belize Blue Is a WAY Better Color for 2020: In early December 2019, Pantone, the experts in all things “color”, announced the 2020 Color of the Year.  As advertised the color is “calming” and a “return to basics” but it is also decidedly MEH.  Boring. Classic Blue. I’m not offended by this color…but I wouldKeep reading »

Gorgeous Belize Weather & Lunch at Blue Water Grill

This last week on Ambergris Caye has really been beautiful.  And the island is HOPPING with all the visitors.  Give yourself a bit of extra time if you have errands or plans in town – traffic is moving slowly.  But what’s the rush anyway?  I find, as the passenger in our golf cart, that it’sKeep reading »

New Years Eve on Ambergris Caye 2019

Celebrating New Years Eve in San Pedro Belize I feel about as qualified to write this post as I would writing one about…say…nuclear fission or Disney theme parks.  (I have about the same amount of interest in both.   =NO interest) So even though I don’t enjoy staying up late or the huge expectations that comeKeep reading »

GORGEOUS Cool Holiday Weather On Ambergris Caye

The few days leading up to the Christmas rush had us all a bit worried.  A big cold front blew in on December 18th and with it…grey and rainy and blustery weather.
