After leaving the zoo,we arrived in Belize City where we boarded a twelve passenger Tropic Air plane for Ambergris Caye. We bade Ben goodbye. He had been such a good guide. Our flight only lasted fifteen minutes. That was the first time I had flown in a puddle jumper. The water was beautiful as we flew over it.
We were met at the small airport and taken to our hotel (Potojo's) on the beach. It was such a beautiful setting, the beach and the water and palm trees. Two people in our original group traveled to a different destination but Sarah, myself, and two of the girls came to Ambergris. It had been a long time since we had eaten breakfast so we were very hungry. We started walking and looking for a place to eat. One can walk all the way through the village in fifteen minutes. We ate at Pape's. I drank a light coke(not called diet there) and ate a club sandwich. We explored our surroundings and then walked back to our hotel. I never really had a chance to sunbathe as the skies were cloudy and there were intermittent showers.
That evening we walked into town and ate and listened to music. There was a special kind of dancing called Punta. We were tired and went to bed early as we had arranged to go snorkeling the next day. I had never done this before, so I was very excited. So far, this had been a dream trip.
