Belize, Belize City, Caye Caulker, Ambergris Caye, 22-23 Nov 2011

This is for all you people who weren’t paying attention in Geography class. The red line is my route upto Antigua where I should arrive on Sunday and the blue circles are the places I have stayed at.

Belize City, laid back, ramshackle, faded grandeur, smiling faces, unpretentious, with a charm of  its own. There is a Tourist zone away from the downtown area where the Cruise ships passengers are ferried to and only authorised locals are allowed, no beggars, horse and buggys, flea market and a number of Diamond shops, There was one cruise ship yesterday today there were five anchored in deep water. When you walk past someone in the street they say “Good Morning” and in Australia its “Mate”, in the USA its “Sir”, in Asia its “Boss”, in Belize its “Daddy”.

I went to Caye Caulker on the water taxi one hour journey wandered around had breakfast then water taxi to San Pedro, Ambergris Caye 30 minutes further North and then back to Belize City 110km round trip. Caulker Caye is the place to be, small, very rustic, no big resorts, unpaved streets, no crowds, beautiful.

The staple diet here is Beans and Rice or you can have Rice and Beans.

  1. Good Morning, Daddy! I love it! Love the map which puts everything into perspective. The scenery is awesome, the streets and people fascinating, your eye to detail very good, and on the whole, great energy! Continued happy trails!

    Did you notice the boat, look closely

  3. My goodness, what a ramshackle boat-like floating object that is! This ought to have had a feature that would allow comments on individual photos.

      If you right click on the picture and select “open link” you will be presented with a web page that allows you to comment on individual pictures, the one in question is 43 samiras boat, look closely at the name on the boat.
