If pictures speak a thousand words, I sure am happy I took plenty of them in Belize this week. Since I have so little time to write, I’m going to let my Nikon do the talking.
First up, sharing both breakfast and the beach with Rocky, La Belize’s one-eyed canine ambassador. Rocky sleeps on the pier and jumps to attention to greet guests arriving by water-taxi from San Pedro. Staff do the same by handing everyone a warm face towel and a fancy cocktail before escorting them to their private abode.
All condos include large verandas, beautifully tiled standing showers, plush beds and full kitchens. The closest grocery store is eight miles away so regular guests bring bright red coolers stocked with provisions to last the week. Save one night to let the local on-site chef cook up conch or lobster and dine under the stars.
Bring bug spray, bike shorts and a sense of adventure for a rough ride along the sandy shoreline if you’d like to visit surrounding resorts. Purple single speeds are free to enjoy however make sure the bike chains are well lubed before using. The chain on George’s first pick fell off repeatedly running over ocean flotsam.
If you must work in paradise, invest in an international cell phone plan before you visit because wifi is limited.
