Travel Inspiration - Belize

     Roaming around Belize is dropping straight into a tropical postcard. This was the second country I visited during my travels through Central America, and while we only stopped off int two locations, they gave me a pretty good taster of the variety of things this country has to offer. Caye Caulker is a tiny island off the coast, in a lagoon bordering the Caribbean Sea, with sunny skies, palm trees lining the shores, rickety wooden piers, streets of colourful buildings, and perfectly clear turquoise waters on all sides. You can walk around the whole thing in under an hour, and its a haven for swimming, snorkelling, diving, paddle boarding - and plenty of Caribbean rum and partying at The Split. By contrast, San Ignacio is a town far inland, bustling with far more locals than tourists - Belize is made easier to navigate for many people, by the fact that English is their first language - and with not a palm tree in sight. I only have a few photos from here, as I spent my main day here cave tubing, and water and my camera don't mix! The town itself is pretty small, serving as a base for activities in the surrounding country, but does have a large food market, which is fun to explore. Belize was a never a country that I thought "oh I have to go there", but I'm so glad I did.
