Travel Blogs from Belize City
So it's been way too long since we dusted off the passports and boarded an airline for distant lands. Belize was the winning choice being so close by and requiring little preparation. Plus, neither of us have previously been there!
Why have we not traveled in so long? Allow the pictures to speak for themselves. All I can say is home …
The adventure has begun! We made it to Belize City, Belize. Of course, there was some last minute running around to make it exciting. However, all our stuff is now living in a 10X30, the cars are in storage and we are on the move. Big thanks to Rick, Kris and Mateo for helping us out when it was down to the wire! We arrived in Belize City and were …
... options that looked open and welcoming, called "Barcelona." We just couldn't find Belizean cuisine. Our experience was much left to be desired. Between the incredibly high prices (even by US standards), the uncomfortable atmosphere and the lack-luster food, we left confused and annoyed. Finally feeling defeated on finding any type of entertainment or night life or even a bar, we opted for cold beverages and American television in our air-conditioned ...
... and it snapped whilst I was reeling it in. I think they need to invest in some stronger lines. Obviously they didn’t take me seriously when I told them I was only interested in fishing for sharks.
After 1 final stop to cool off and jump from the top of the boat we ploughed on to Placencia where we arrived at 4:30pm, the end of an incredible 3 days.
We walked the 10 minutes from the pier to our accommodation, Deb & Dave’s ...
... and stalactites. Eventually, it ends. Darn! It is required to have a guide to go through the caves.
We returned to the ship and met for dinner in the Venetian Main Dining Room again. We are creatures of habit.
We went to the show called Band on the Run which included the production cast and band sing and dance to the melodies of Styx, Donna Summer, Queen, and others.
How has this hotel rated in the past?
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.
