AMAZING Photos of San Pedro Belize’s MASSIVE 2014 Halloween Night- Part One

Actual Halloween falls on a Friday this year…which means the BIG PARTY night in San Pedro  (always a Saturday) came early.  Last night, the Holiday Hotel rolled out the red carpet (literally) and almost instantly, Halloween was in full swing. San Pedro goes absolutely nuts for the holiday and this annual party lasts until dawn.  MyKeep reading »

Sitting Atop One Massive Cave System: St. Herman’s Cave & The Inland Blue Hole

The more you travel around Belize, the more you realize how seriously blessed with natural wonders this tiny country is.  The hemisphere’s longest barrier reef, hundreds of sandy cayes and atolls, gorgeous green rivers, lush valley, mountains, jungles inhabited by some of the world’s most beautiful animals like the scarlet macaw and the jaguar…all inKeep reading »

Magical, Magical Sleeping Giant Lodge in Belize’s Maya Mountains

Warning:  Cornball alert.  I am going to gush about this spot.  Wax lyrical…and use words like magical way too many times.   In fact, this is the third time already.

Sanctuary Caye: Sanctuary Belize’s Private Island Getaway is SPECTACULAR

Over the weekend, I visited Sanctuary Belize, the massive development – (I’ll call it the) town planning project just south of Hopkins, Belize and just north of Placencia.   14,000  acres.  1,800+ lots developed and being developed. The planned project is epic (and I don’t like that overused word one bit)…the plans and the possibilitiesKeep reading »

Merida, Mexico: I Love So Many Things About this City

I LOVE a city.  I moved to Belize from Manhattan, New York – certainly one of the biggest and most exciting cities on earth.    A move that I do not regret in any way. (Though I wouldn’t mind if my corner bagel shop, Murray’s, opened a branch in San Pedro, Belize.)  I knew thatKeep reading »

The “Real Belize”: Punta Gorda Has SO Much Character & I Love It

I really didn’t have many preconceived ideas about the southernmost sizeable town in Belize – Punta Gorda.  I knew the far south was the least touristy area of Belize.  They also see the most yearly rainfall and the entire region is pretty rural.   The majority of tourists never make it down there and thereKeep reading »
