Belize Trip - Scuba, Snorkeling and the Jungle!
Snorkeling at Hol Chan Marine Reserve
Our trip journal covers 10 amazing days in Belize! Perfect weather, Mayan culture and a bit of adventure. On our Belize tour we were able to scuba dive, snorkeling and hike through the jungle.
After taking 2 days to fly from Montana to Belize City, Joe and I finally arrive! So long snow....Hello sun!
Arriving into Belize City was a snap. The airport is quite small (a handful of gates), so it was relatively quiet. Our bags arrived quickly and we went through customs. Outside of the airport, the heat hit us! Not as humid as I …
Scuba and a Little R & R
This morning, we went to the dive shop where I did 2 of the 4 dives for my certification. I talked Joe into the refresher course (with some resistance), but it had been about 13 years since his last dive! We were on the same boat which was nice, and I got one-on-one instruction with Ricardo. We dove at the local Caye Caulker Marine Reserve and …
Officially Scuba Certified
Today was another good day! After my 2 dives this morning, I am officially SCUBA certified! Pretty exciting!
We explored town a bit....It's amazing that there are no vehicles on the island! It was great! People do use golf carts to get around, or for the taxis, but other than that, it's mostly pedestrians.
This evening was another day of …
Day of Rest
Today was a nice relaxing day! We woke early, had breakfast at Amor y Cafe. I love the fresh fruit, fruit juice and fruit smoothies that you can get almost everywhere!
Joe and I explored the south side of the island, beyond our cabin. There is a "mini-reserve" on this side of the island...A good place for bird-watching and …
Fishing and Snorkeling
Today was a great day! Joe fished off of our dock and caught a bonefish! Very exciting!
We had breakfast at Sobre Las Olas and I had fried jacks for the first time. (Pretty much like fried dough) Of course, I had some rice and beans too!
We also did a full-day snorkeling tour with Ragamuffin Tours. Their tour stood out because they take you …
Some more R&R
Honestly, I'm not sure what we did this day! Probably some reading, napping and definitely eating!
The Big Dive!
We were at the dive shop at 6:00 AM this morning! They had breakfast ready for us, which was great. We took about a 2-hour boat ride to the Turneffe atoll for our 3-tank dive. The area was beautiful and the water a deep blue. They fed us a huge lunch and we dove at 3 different sites. We saw a big lobster, barracuda and an eel.
It was nice to …
Leaving the Island and Off to the Jungle!
Sad day, but I'm ready for the next adventure. We took the water taxi back to Belize City and waited for our bags to arrive...(They ended up on a separate boat.) We shared a taxi with 4 other people plus the diver (that makes 7 of us in a relatively average-sized car). The driver was a bit scary and didn't even stop to let a disabled man cross …
Cave Tubing and the Belize Zoo
The sounds at Pook's are wonderful! Birds, bugs, and in the distance, howler monkeys! We had a terrific breakfast. There was more than enough food.
Francisco, our guide, took us to the zoo. The Belize Zoo only has orphaned or abandoned animals, and it seems like they really care about the animals there. We saw many animals of Belize that …
