Not Charlie’s Chocolate Factory

Punta Gorda, Belize Finding myself in this sleepy town of Punta Gorda or as everyone calls it PG. The southern most tip of Belize where usually you only come to catch a boat across Amatique Bay to Guatemala. This is the less traveled part of Belize! Roads in to Guatemala this far south don’t exist yet….

DTouz With Doyle E

Placencia, Belize  I did a lot in my 2 weeks in Placencia but running into Doyle E Gardiner was a treat. I think Jim and I had a few too many beers and rums with him at the Barefoot Beach Bar! His official office. Doyle is a great guy, a skilled guide and loves sharing his…

The Split – Party Central

Caye Caulker, Belize If you’re on this tiny Belizean Caye and looking for a good spot to hang out on a Saturday afternoon?  I suggest The Split and you won’t be alone. Pretty much everyone on the island will likely be there sometime that afternoon. It is the spot and I’m staying at a cute…

Spear Fishing For Lobster!

Placencia, Belize Growing up in small town Nova Scotia we “Bluenosers” know the succulence of these ocean bottom dwellers! So when a day of spearing fishing these sweet crustaceans amongst the coral reefs of the Caribbean presented itself I was ready! We planned a day with Caye Quest Private Tours of Placencia. The day long trip included everything…

Super Bowl XLVII In The Sunny South

Caye Caulker, Belize It is quite the feeling waking up knowing that you’re going to watch Super Bowl 47 at a sports bar on the beach and it’s going to be 85 degrees. Couldn’t be further away from the frigid Canadian north than Caye Caulker, Belize. Game day on this great little island at Barrier Reef Sports Bar…

Take A Puddle Jumper

Corozal, Belize It’s January 12th and I’m leaving Corozal after 3 weeks in town. What a great little place but time to leave and explore more!  Plan was to catch the 7 am water taxi to San Pedro on Ambergris Caye but my new friends decided to have a late night party. So, yes I slept in and never saw…

Back In Time

Corozal, Belize It came to me the other day while out and about walking around this small town. It reminds me so much of what it used to be like growing up as young boy. Like traveling back in time to the 60’s. A simpler less complicated time, when family and community were very important and existed as one. People…

A Day In The Ruins

Orange Walk, Belize Today we are setting out for a day at the Mayan Ruin Lamanai in the Orange Walk district of Belize. My first Ruins and our trusty cab driver is shuttling us there and we’ll be getting a bus home. About 6 hrs there and back. It’s my first trip to a Mayan Ruin…

Fresh Tortilla’s at Chicos

Corozal Town, Belize How about some fresh tortilla’s? I stumbled across this tiny little shop out on my morning walk in Corozal, Belize. I was peeking inside from the street and was waved in to look around by a curious man working inside. He showed me around and I could not spell his name to save my life. My first feeling…
