... none with a little hanging wooden sign on a tiny jetty. San Pedro was just a transit point whilst we caught the next ferry to Caye Caulker. Where else in the world, would the "Captain" ask if you`d like to join him on the flybridge just like an old friend?

We bicycled back to our bed and breakfast. While the entire island seems full of dogs, our little
house has multiple cats. The house is super cute. We have a room on the second floor and the owners live above us. On the roof is a parapa with hammocks.
The night sky is not nearly so dark and starlit as at Hamanasi, but still pretty. We could see the Milky Way and several ...

When it comes to exploring the deep jungle of Belize, this is as comfortable as it is going to get. The accommodations are rustic and authentic enough to provide the experience, yet still very comfortable. A family owned place, they treated us like their family.
