AMBERGRIS CAYE, BELIZE

Ambergris Caye, Belize January 6-14, 2012

sunny 30 °C

What a gong show trying to get to Belize!! When you look on a map, Belize is only a couple inches away, LOL, yet we had to fly from Saskatoon to Denver to Houston to Belize City, and then take a ferry to Ambergris Caye. Ugh. However, in Denver our flight got canceled cuz the flight attendant didnt show up to work!! So we had to sleep in the airport and got on a flight the next day to Houston, but now had to fly to Dallas and THEN to Houston. Of course, we didnt make it to Houston on time, and missed our flight to Belize City. Long story short ... by the time we FINALLY got to our resort on the island, we had lost a full day of vacation, and all 4 of us lost our luggage!!

This is our resort ... Villas at Banyan Bay.

One afternoon we went for a walk down to the Victoria House Resort ... probably the nicest beach on the island!

To be honest, theres nothing of interest to do on this island. We rented a golf cart one afternoon and drove around, and still didnt find anything exciting.

The only thing we did was go snorkeling on the Mesoamerica Barrier Reef (the 2nd largest barrier reef in the world ... 2nd only to Australia's Great Barrier Reef).

Our last day on the island we just relaxed with some delicious drinks! Then it was off to the mainland.
