... snacks likes oreos and nestle, dish detergent, pet food, and lots of noodles out of their garage. I didn't buy anything but it will likely become a pit-stop. After this, I walked 1/2 mile more down the road and went to the Best Western hotel to get some dinner. As I only have fig newtons, peanut butter and granola bars I needed a bit more substance. This is where the rice and peas came in. After talking to a ...
... but I wandered a little off course where came across two sleeping GIANT nurse sharks. Kinda papped myself as wasn’t expecting to see the sharks in that area and had no idea if those ones were dangerous or not. I shouted over the guide leader, then a big group came over to have a look – guess they aren’t the dangerous ones then! Was pretty awesome to see them out in the wild and that close though.
Second site was Shark Ray Alley, where it ...
... to the task of keeping the rain off us - we all got soaked :) It was a fun tour though. Kelly and I had gone on an airboat tour of the Everglades last year and this was much more enjoyable, even with the rain. But once done, 36 soaked-to-the-bone cruisers loaded back onto the bus for a ride back to the port and a tender ride back to the ship. We had dinner as guests of the Chief Engineer and then took in an amazing performance of something titled "Circue Navigator" in the theatre. ...
... engulfs you in an unbelievable way. Can't
really believe it is happening. The airport in Belize has A/C so an
easy run through customs. A calypso band greeted us. Hard to describe
my torn feelings. A part of me had come home, yet all was changed.
Julio met us with the car. It is a Suzuki deluxe that has seen quite
a few punishing miles. Seemed in good running order, few quirks like spongy breaks but Julio assured us they had just been done,

... looking for "things " floating that were not in an intertube. The jungle and the river were incredibly clean. Roberto swam next to us, yelling "butts up!"And dragging us through a few shallow spots.
We were able to float the river back to the origin of the tour. Sherri and Allie bought some coconut water from a native. Did we enjoy the cave tubing? You better belize we did.
When we returned to the port, we went in a few shops ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Red Hut Inn Belize City
Good, safe accommodation with very helpful owners. Airport pickup saves you $5 over mandated taxi fares straight away. Nice rental cars available and Louis and Julia, the owners, can arrange tours. Neighbors of the owners are also tour guides so beers on the veranda are good for gathering information. Louis makes a nice barbeque on the patio so if you don't feel like self catering (you can, there's a kitchen) you can relax with a beer while he grills you a lobster.l It's an "Inn", not a hotel so if you're expecting crisp white linens and "fabrezed out" rooms, reprogram your thinking to a something more in tune to a visit with an old friend with a couple guest rooms. The rooms are clean and the owners burn mosquito incense in the outdoor hallway in the evening so while you are in the tropics bug nuisance is at a minimum. There are more channels available on the television than I had at home so after all day flights, dinner and beers, it was a nice distraction to wind down with a familiar movie. In all, I would definitely stay there again.
