    Belize City Things to Do

    There are several unique and fascinating things to do in Belize. One of the most unique is the river cave tubing; if we ever return to Belize, this type of day trip is definitely on my list! If you are not on a ship, stop at tourist info. office for brochures or watch for tour operator signs advertising this adventure. Cave tubing tours takes you...

  • The Wet Lizard

    4 out of 5 stars

    Belize City Restaurants

    When you're walking along the "boardwalk" at the waterfront near the Tourism Village, you'll definitely pass "The Wet Lizard." This nice little place located on the second story of a shop offers drinks, snacks and light meals. People sitting on the covered balcony section overlooking the boardwalk & bay will wave at you & offer to buy a drink, but...

  • Cocina Caramba

    3 out of 5 stars

    Ambergris Cay Restaurants

    We went to Caramba as we read some positive reviews about the place... They had a sign out front advertising a seafood platter special... and in we went. The seafood platter was nothing more than a regular-sized plate, with an even smaller dish holding some shrimp and scallops. It was a huge disappointment, and even bigger rip-off, considering the...


    Ambergris Cay Sports & Outdoors

    There are several dive shops on the island, take your pick. They will take you out for diving or snorkeling. One place that we went was Mexico Rocks. It is a shallower area, 8-15 feet, and the water is quite clear teeming with beautiful fish.

  • Snorkeling with White Sands Dive Shop

    Ambergris Cay Sports & Outdoors

    White Sands Dive shop was our logical choice for our snorkeling trip since it was conviently located just steps away from our hotel. We choose to do an afternoon 1/2 day trip of snorkeling to Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley which cost $55 US including transportation and gear (if you have your own snorkel gear the price is $45 US).The shop also has...

  • Caliente's

    San Pedro Restaurants

    Caliente's is right on the beach, so you're able to eat your food and enjoy the sea at the same time. Everything on the menu is DELICIOUS!!!!! It's a family run restaurant and the staff is related in some way. The service is very laid back and they always have a smile on their face. As soon as you walk in the door, you are thought of and treated as...

  • Best little boutique in San Pedro

    San Pedro Shopping

    What a surprise to find this Balinese inspired women's boutique. The mild whiff incense is the the first thing that greets you as you open the door to a retreat from the dusty main street in San Pedro. Colorful fabrics from Bali fill the store from floor to ceiling. The owner is also the designer and was great in helping me find my perfect dress...

  • Temple of the Masonry Altars

    Altun Ha Things to Do

    Temple of the Masonry Altars, Structure B-4, is the most imposing building at Altun Ha. It rises 54 feet above the floor of Plaza B. Archeologists have probed the entire construction history of this temple, determining that it was built in eight phases, the first beginning around 550 A.D. The present reconstruction is of the temple as it would have...

  • Climb the Highest Temple

    Altun Ha Things to Do

    One of the neat things about Altun Ha is that the temples may be climbed by visitors. Karen and I climbed to the top of the Temple of the Masonry Altars, using wooden steps part of the way. The most difficult part of the climb was using some of the ancient stone steps laid by the Mayans. The steps were so high, even for a long-legged person like...

  • Temple of the Green Tomb

    Altun Ha Things to Do

    The Temple of the Green Tomb, also known as Temple A-1, is the most imposing structure in Plaza A. It consists of a terraced platform marked by a broad stone staircase which extends about halfway up the structure to a chambered building. The temple was built during several construction periods in the 5th and 6th centuries A.D. Several minor...

    Crooked Tree Restaurants

    the man who had opened the room had disappeared but a nice young lady had appeared in the kitchen after we had asked the man if they served meals... so I went to her to get a confirmation that she was cooking just for us and to ask at what time they served dinner: she apologized saying she wouldn't have been ready till 18.30... and when back from a...

  • A Boat Tour of the Watery Paradise

    Crooked Tree Things to Do

    Our main reason for coming to the Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary was to take a guided boat-tour of the various waterways for a good look at some of the many species of wildlife to be found here. We were up at 5:30 AM on our first morning to grab a light breakfast of fruit slices, juice and coffee before we sauntered over to the boats shown here....

  • Up the Creek, Spanish that is

    Crooked Tree Things to Do

    We had seen quite a few birds on the first part of our voyage, near the civilized part of the lagoon beside Crooked Tree Village, but we really enjoyed the trip down to the far end of the lagoon and then onward into Spanish Creek. Leny continued to impress us with his knowledge and keen eyes in picking out things that we would never have seen as we...

  • Dont miss Michael's Restaurant!

    Burrell Boom Restaurants

    This is a real treat...but be careful, you might miss it! Take a drive through this charming village on the river and make sure to go through "town" and stop by Michaels Restaurant next to the only grocery store in town, Seidy's. When we visited last month, they had just opened an internet cafe next to it as well, the only place to get public...

  • Don't miss the homemade margaritas!

    Burrell Boom Restaurants

    We just got back from Belize yesterday (3/31/07) and visited the restaurant at the Black Orchid Resort for lunch. Although the menu choices were mostly geared toward the American taste---ie, chicken fingers, burgers---there were a couple of local foods on the menu. As we were not hungry and somehow got the impression that the local foods might be...

  • Some liquid refreshments to kick off the...

    Burrell Boom Shopping

    Shortly after entering Burrell Boom, we came upon Hilltop Winery, one of just a few wineries in Belize. We were led into a room where we sampled wine made from grapefruit, blackberries and cashew nuts. Our favorite was the Tamarind wine...we bought 2 bottles for a total of $10 US.
