Maybe my favorite way to travel around the cayes. You can charter your own boat (if certified), join up with a group for a few days or more or just head out for a day of snorkeling, rum punch, sun and fun. A very popular trip from Ambergris Caye is the day sail to CayeKeep reading »
Floating slowly down a crystal clear river in total darkness with only your head lamp on. Sounds a little scary but it is SO NOT. The cave’s formations, the holes letting in just a stream of light, the crystals sparkling…it’s awesome. You’ll love it. Read more about my trip cave tubing in the post below.
At least 1/4 of Belize – the Maya Mountain range – stands over an intricate system of beautiful caves. Some you can tube through —> See Cave Tubing. And my trip through gorgeous St. Herman’s Cave – part hiking and part tubing. Others dry caves like the AMAZING Blanceneaux Cave that I visited with MysticKeep reading »
These are not for those on a budget….but if you have the money, many find a Tropic Air charter over the Blue Hole well worth the money. Take a look at this guest blog and some of Danielle’s pictures of her flight. GORGEOUS. Or think about…a helicopter tour. Over the 1000 foot falls…or some ofKeep reading »
Here’s a complete guide written by someone who KNOWS! Seems like lots more people should be down here doing it. Especially during the “Easter winds” – spring on Ambergris Caye is perfect for those who want to get out there and catch some serious breezes.
If you are staying on or near the coast, you can find a manatee watching trip near you. Belize, in fact, has the highest concentration of manatees in the world. These large “sea cows” hang out in shallow water which makes them easier to spot from the boat. Their super cute, fuzzy big bowling ball-like noses poke up aboveKeep reading »
There are so many Mayan sites around the country of Belize that you could easily plan a visit devoted to only that. But many prefer a day tour. The ruins at Cahal Pech in San Ignacio, Cayo. The most popular sites from the Northern Cayes, Orange Walk and Corozal are Lamanai (“submerged Crocodile”), from BelizeKeep reading »
I JUST went on a parasailing tour just by San Pedro town and it was amazing. WHAT A VIEW. Would be a great trip for a parent and kids… For all the details and pictures check out my post…
There are some like the Rum Punch II and the Blue Tang Inn out of San Pedro and Raggamuffin Tours from Caye Caulker that operate what I like to call “Old School” wooden, Belizean made fishing boats refurbished just for cruising. Whether chartered for a half day “pub crawl”, joining a group for a snorkelKeep reading »
Ambergris Caye & Caye Caulker: Two of the most famous diving locations around. The world’s 2nd largest barrier reef is just a few hundred yards off shore. Explore caves or canyons, walls or just the amazing sea life in our warm waters. The cayes are also great places to get certified in diving if youKeep reading »
Belize is world famous for the barrier reef, atolls and snorkeling and scuba diving. The shallow water around the reef and abundant sea life makes it perfect for snorkeling. When in Ambergris Caye or Caye Caulker, amazing sites like Hol Chan Marine reserve, Mexico Rocks and Shark Ray Alley are just minutes away from town byKeep reading »
The zoo founded in 1983 by Sharon Matola, the Belize Zoo totally rocks my world. Relatively small, beautifully set-up, containing only animals that have been rescued, are born in captivity and are native to Belize, I don’t think there is anywhere else on earth that you can get so close to a jaguar. Located aboutKeep reading »
Crazy fun and almost no skill required. Once you realized that you are sitting in a sturdy harness…you just go with the flow. The wind whipping in your hair as you cruise over the jungle. SO FUN. Even for the relatively unadventurous like me. You’ve got two main option in Belize. Outside of Belize CityKeep reading »
