Sunrise at Turneffe Flats (Julia Kocubinski)
We had an early morning departure today for Belize City. We took our time through the mangroves, saw a couple more manatee, and then cruised the 30 miles back across the ocean. A quick and beautiful flight on Tropic Air brought us to Placencia, our home for the next couple days. We were transferred to the Turtle Inn, Francis Ford Coppola's property in Placencia. It was absolutely beautiful. The lodge was decorated Bali style, and while we felt a little under-dressed and out of place, the staff did such a great job making us feel welcome. After exploring the property a bit, we grabbed some bikes and headed into town. We wandered the narrowest street in the world - according to Guiness Book of World Records and ate some delicious Belizean cuisine.
