Belize is famous for their wood carvings. I forget the type of wood that they use, but you will find many people selling various carvings; such as bowls, utensils, masks, and sculptures. If you happen to go to Boomba Village, you may get lucky and see how it is all done. And it's all done by hand.
While Boomba Village we were able to capture this skill in the making. A young Garfuna was in the process of making a bowl from a tree. He said that it would take him 2-3 weeks to finish.
Getting overcrowded, but had some appeal
In order to get away from the hustle and bustle of the village (see below), rent a bike and head for the north island. Ride along the coast and you'll soon be alone to enjoy the beach and the ocean. Although I didn't like San Pedro nearly as much as Caye Caulker, I did enjoy the north island.
"San Pedro vs. Caye Caulker"
San Pedro on Ambergris Caye is a stark contrast to Caye Caulker. For one thing, there are cars/vans on the small streets. And there are tons of golf carts whizzing by and people on bikes. In other words, it's a bit congested now. Folks who like staying in luxurious, expensive resorts will like it here. I found too many 40 year-olds who were trying to relive their high school days by being loud and obnoxious. Not my scene. But, if you're like that, then you'll like it here.
