Traveling to Belize: Things To Do
I recently had the chance to visit a beautiful country called, Belize. After landing, I took a ferry straight to San Pedro which was about an hour and a half from Belize City. I would recommend this island over Caye Caulker because it's a lot quieter and yet they're both very similar. I stayed in a quaint room called Park Place, the reviews seemed promising and I love browsing Airbnb places over hotels any day. The receptionist, James, was so helpful, he gave us a map of the island and circled his favorite places. So I wanted to share with you guys a few of the things I highly suggest you check out if you ever go to San Pedro.
Secret Beach, which is located in Ambergris Caye, was incredible!! I was so glad to have made the 30 min bumpy golf cart ride there (which btw, you can rent by the day between the prices of $50-80 all over the island). This not so secret beach was both calm and clear with a bar on sight equipped with yummy drinks and food. The hammocks and beach chairs were a nice touch to indulge in after galloping around in the water (because you're too excited to do anything else).
Searious Adventure was some serious adventure forreal. I unfortunately did not bring an underwater camera to showcase to you all of the cool fish and sharks I saw, but I promise you it was well worth it. Searious Adventures have a variety of different tour options to choose from if you want to do more than just snorkeling. The instructors who took us were so friendly and both of them had a great sense of humor despite their witty business name.
Skydive Belize, fuck. I couldn't have chosen a better place to jump out of plane!! Skydiving was a liberating experience, the kind you don't get by being dragged off of a plane (looking at you, United). I'm not too fearful when it comes to things like this, unless you're a white man in a dark alley not too many things make me freak out. Only kidding. The best way to not freak out before something happens, is to literally not think about it. I got up there, and like a sponge, absorbed all the views which were insane! I highly suggest you guys checking them out in Belize, if not they also have a skydive base in Colorado for the warmer months.
Melt Cafe, was THE breakfast spot! Most places don't open up till 11am for breakfast and this place opened at 7am everyday. I ordered their fruit bowl and bagel melt and it did not disappoint. They had a wide range of breakfast, lunch and dinner options to devour all while sitting in front of the beach.
Palapa Bar and Grill even though I did not have food here, I did have their delicious micheladas! If you don't know what a michelada is and love salty and spicy anything, google it. Behind the bar there is an area to swim and float in black floaties... the Instagram desaturated blogger's dream. My saturated (not desaturated, because I like to look tan in my pictures) dream was fulfilled, but not without struggle. If you want it, you must go for it and don't be afraid to fail!
Overall I have nothing bad to say about my trip, the weather was amazing, the people were friendly and the views were gorgeous!
