Tours From The Island

An Afternoon on the Rum Punch and a Stop at Palapa Bar

Yesterday four ladies and quite a few coolers loaded on the Rum Punch II for a sail northwards. A very pretty day with a few heavy clouds and a surprisingly stiff wind from the northwest.  The captain, George Eiley, estimated it at about 15 knots. We sailed north passed Grand Caribe… And some gentlemen outKeep reading »

CSI Belize Tour: A Night Time Search for Crocs on Ambergris Caye

Most people that visit San Pedro swim with sharks and sting rays at Hol Chan Marine Park.  Some go to see manatees, some see monkeys on a trip to the mainland.  But there is a relatively new tour that exposes people to a threatened species that lives right here on the island.  You hardly haveKeep reading »

Sailing "Old School" on San Pedro’s Rum Punch II

Thursday afternoon, I was invited for a sail and snorkel trip on San Pedro resident’s George Eiley’s Rum Punch 2.   I’d been on the classic wooden fishing boat once before (Gorgeous Day of Sailing) and LOVED it.  This time we had a bigger group, lots of drinks and snacks and a beautiful day.  ItKeep reading »

A GORGEOUS Day Sailing on the Rum Punch 2

Yesterday could not have been more perfect for sailing.  Blue cloudless skies, warm and breezy, we set sail at about noon yesterday on the Rum Punch 2, a refurbished traditional Belizean sail boat.While waiting to board, I ran into this gentleman.  Belizean Melody’s newly relocated art gallery has certainly found a catchy new way toKeep reading »

Nature Paradise Just a Quick Trip from San Pedro…Who Knew?

Invited by a friend, I decided to take a quick trip off Ambergris Caye.  September to November are the perfect times to get out and explore Belize.  Hotels and travel are cheaper.   And there is no better way to fight off “island fever” than a little holiday.  I took the 8am water taxi from San PedroKeep reading »

Sailing to Caye Caulker with Seaduced and Fishing our Way Back

Jamie is leaving Belize today after seven weeks…so we decided to use the last day to sail to Caye Caulker with Seaduced.  Definitely a favorite thing to do in San Pedro. Yesterday was beautiful with very little breeze.  The water was perfectly clear.  Royal Palm, where I stay, had removed every other board in ourKeep reading »

Searious Trip to Caye Caulker + A Two Minute Hostel Assessment

Let’s mix things up.  No…not a new place.  Nah…not a new trip…a new tour company!  It wasn’t the ideal day weather-wise when we were picked up by Searious Adventures but it still ended up being a very sunny and all around good time. Searious has a smaller, more intimate catamaran than some of the other bigKeep reading »

Sailing with Seaduced to Caye Caulker…AGAIN!

I love this sail to Caye Caulker and I love going with Seaduced.  The boat is spacious with area in the back to hide from the blazing sun and good bathrooms.  During the summer, my friend Jamie and I try to go at least once a week.  Yesterday was a ridiculously beautiful day to be outKeep reading »


And I don’t LOVE much.  I’ve lived in Belize for almost 5 years and never went cave tubing and ziplining on the mainland.  It is one of the most popular trips for visitors.  Yes, I had a bunch of excuses.  Too expensive…the trip to the mainland from San Pedro is too long…it leaves too early…it isKeep reading »

Another Trip to Caye Caulker and Lunch at Paradiso Sandwich Shop

A trip to Caye Caulker, again with Seaduced Tours on the catamaran and another beautiful day.  One problem with sailing on Mondays: Rainbow Restaurant (my favorite place…see previous Caye Caulker post) is closed.  So we decided either Pedro’s Pizza/Inn Caye Caulker (which I’ve tried once before and is very good) or Paradiso Sandwich Shop.  I wantedKeep reading »

Seaduced by Belize and Caye Caulker

The number one trip I always recommend to anyone…tourist or local who needs to be a day catamaran trip.  I LOVE IT.  It can go two ways.  You can either sail north to Mexico Rocks.  A day on the boat in most beautiful water with 2 snorkeling stops and a BBQ.  Or you can sail toKeep reading »
