General Cayes Tips (4)

Favorite thing go on a catamaran trip to Caye Caulker on the Me Too with Hustler Tours!

Fondest memory I miss the people of Ambergris the most when I am away. They are the friendliest, most fun-loving people in the world. They make the island what it is-my favorite place in the world! I've made friendships with people down there that are stronger than any of my relationships at home.

Favorite thing enjoy the diversity! Spend some time on one of the Cayes - I was on Ambergris Caye for 4 days. There is much to do here that is water-related. Stay in at least one of the eco lodges, visit the Belize Zoo(one of the best I have seen). It is small but the selection of native animals are kept in enclosures that are so like their natural habitat. Rent a car and explore the country - it is small, there is hardly any traffic and the roads are good.And yes, that is the San Pedro Police Station on the left!An indication of the crime rate, I think!

Favorite thing Try bonefishing.Go out on night searches for the elusive jaguar.Cross the border into Guatemala and visit the magnificent ruins at the site of Tikal

Fondest memory On Ambergris Caye - being able to walk along the roadside barefoot! Where nothing more dangerous than a golf cart will pass you on the road. No tarmac - just sand.....
Above is a typical cottage at Chan Chich Lodge

Favorite thing Difficult to advise on must do's on Belize as we spent the majority of our time working from a small island, South Water Caye.
Belize city was an experience though, worth a one night stay just to get a feel for the place.

Fondest memory stroking a small box fish whilst snorkelling, he seemed to like it!
Also, my first sighting of a hammerhead shark.....wow! My lasting memory of Belize though is the feeling of contributing towards the preservation of the delicate reef system, something I feel quite proud of.
