... Belize Express water taxi we were packed like sardines in an unventilated room. It was hot, hot, hot! It felt good once we picked up speed and got a good ocean breeze. The water was clear and blue and I couldn't wait to get in it. After 45 minutes we received a drizzly welcome to Caye Caulker, the brother island of San Pedro. June was just the start of the rainy season and it came like clockwork. But, no matter! A little rain cooled things down and it certainly wasn't slowing us ...
