The Juxtaposition of Ambergris Caye

There have been very few times in my travels I haven’t felt comfortable taking out my camera and snapping away. The first day we arrived in San Pedro (the main city on the caye) wasn’t one of those times. I took endless photos of the white sandy beaches, palm trees, sunsets and the quintessential Ryan in the hammock with a rum drink pose. Think Maui meets Mexico. Friendly locals rely on the tourism industry to survive. They couldn’t have been any happier to see us especially as this is the low season. We stayed in a lovely casita directly adjacent to the home of a Canadian ex-pat...

Swimming with Sharks

Post by Ryan: As I see it, I’ve really got two options the first time a stingray or nurse shark brushes up against me unexpectedly as it swims around looking for the chum our guide has thrown into the water. I can either panic and head for the boat ladder, or laugh hysterically at the absurdity of it all. As the first one out of the ship, my bravado takes over and I choose laughter. It also helps that these particular sharks don’t have teeth and just use suction to catch their prey. While staying on Caye Caulker on Belize’s eastern Caribbean side, Trish and I booked a snorkeling trip...

Caye Caulker – The Island of Flashing Smiles

How didn’t I know about Caye Caulker? I guess it’s one of those places that people don’t talk about because they want it to stay exactly the same. I get it. People don’t want this Belizian island to get over run with visitors or the hostel rates may go up. Or, God forbid, the rum punch shots might not be free anymore I apologize to those folks for writing a blog post but here it is. I want people to know about it because it’s the place in the world where the most people have ever smiled at me. People here are seriously happy!   Caye Caulker is a short water taxi ride from...

Chaa Creek Nature Reserve: Wildly Civilized

Chaa Creek probably isn’t what you are picturing. At least, it wasn’t what I imagined. Apparently I set my expectations too low. After checking out the website I pictured a luxury resort set in the middle of the jungle. Sounds great, but I’ve been to all-inclusive places before and I assumed it was the standard protocol of the same manufactured experience stamped out this time in the jungle of Belize. I just didn’t realize how much credit to give the place. I was unaware it was the first eco-lodge to open in Belize and is responsible for much of the craze that is now the booming...
