Quite used to tourists by now, the resident sea turtles of the reefs off Ambergris Caye are ideal models to try and capture grace underwater. While the diving is spectacular it is not necessary - it's a snorkelers paradise just off shore!

Mile8 Pine Ridge Rd., 00000, Belize
Anywhere whose address is "Mile 8" of a pot-holed dirt road is my type of place (even when your busted rental car shocks are creaking and only one headlight is working because the battery has bounced out of place). Arriving at Mountain Equestrian...

It's hard to beat Tikal when visiting various Maya ruins but this complex of temples was one of my favorites. Perhaps the 2 hour boat ride just getting there peaks one's imagination but even stepping foot on the dock I felt I had gone back to...

San Pedro, Belize
My girlfriend and I were wandering along the beach and saw this pier beckoning us to stop and stay awhile. We did and had a magically glorious sunbathing experience, including swimming with barracuda under the dock, a diving contest and swimsuit...

Driving in any direction on the Hummingbird Highway, it would be hard to miss this white shack surrounded by cars, in a small clearing immediately next to the road under the shade of a very large tree. Ms. Bertha’s Tamales has little signage, but...

My girlfriend and I had awoken this morning on Caye Caulker to dark clouds and torrential downpours, after having recently arrived from the land of rain ourselves, the Pacific Northwest. Needless to say, we were in dire need of some Vitamin D, so...

San Ignacio, Chaa Creek Road, Belize
If you want to spoil yourself in between climbing Maya ruins or exploring the depths of the Maya underworld, the Lodge at Chaa Creek is the place. Even Prince Harry and Bill Gates think so, as they both stopped by during visits to Belize recently....

36 Coconut Dr, San Pedro, Belize
Head south of town to the tiny beach bar at Mata Rocks Resort. Squirrel’s Nest is a peaceful spot to enjoy a few cocktails while taking in views of Belize’s well-renowned Barrier Reef. For years, I called Mata Rocks my hotel of choice when I...

I found this striking wall mural while walking around in San Ignacio, Belize. There are a lot of hand painted advertisements on empty walls acting as billboards. Safe sex is a big issue in Belize, as it is thoughout Central America, and this no...

Punta Gorda, Belize
Just before Punta Gorda's main street bumps into the Caribbean, Cotton Tree Chocolate occupies a tiny two-room factory and store. The ladies who run the place are always happy to give free tours—the best part is out back, where they roast cacao...
