Tomorrow, I fly to USC for Parent’s Weekend with my 20-year-old. The last time I saw him, he was spearfishing lobsters off of Ambergris Caye in Belize.
Join me for our slideshow of Beautiful Belize:
We forded jungle rivers and spelunked in caves, exploring sacrificial sites of the ancient Mayan.
We stomped up temple ruins and heard tales of ancient civilizations.
We ate dragonfruit and grilled Talapia and a spinach specialty served alongside stewed meats. We ate rice and beans, at every meal, of course! We washed it all down with the island’s own, Belikin, and a splash of homemade Banana Wine!
We slept in treehouses, perched 2 flights up, high in the fork of the trees. The Mopan River flowed under us, the fireflies put on a nightly show, and the jungle cats hunted prey through the tall grasses!
The next night, we slept on offshore cayes, where we biked along sandy roads (and even sandy beaches), drifted the reefs with local guides in search of barracuda, swam with sting rays in the marine sanctuary, and… yes… went free diving to spear fish for lobsters!
Come along for our photo tour, showcasing the Beauty of Belize!
