Any place worth getting to, can be quite a journey......
We flew from Detroit to Miami, and then from Miami to Belize City. The first resort we were going to spend 3 nights at - Blancaneaux Lodge - was a 2 hour drive from there. From reading the reviews, I knew that many of the roads were unpaved - even washed out at times. But our driver, Theodore, was so informative and pleasant that we hardly minded. He told us all about his diverse country - pointed out citrus farms - and had I not seen it for myself, I would not have believed that Amish farmers settle there!
Once at the resort, we could not believe how beautiful it was. We were welcomed with a wonderful drink called Jaguar Juice at the bar pictured below. Then we were lead to our cabin, complete with an outdoor living space! The local woodwork, textiles and handicrafts/decor were exactly what we love about places like this.
For the next 3 nights, we moved to the sister resort - Turtle Inn - on the beach. Our little cabin was right on the sand and mere feet from the ocean!
