Punta Gorda

Today marks one month until we leave Belize. We couldn’t leave without devoting at least a few posts to the community that’s been our home for the past 11 months.


After a relaxing time back in PG, we head for Placencia — Southern Belize’s own beachy gem — for a weekend of sand and surf, and this particular weekend: LOBSTERFEST!

Back-a-Bush & Butterflies

Back in Belize, we take ma and pa on the recently-dubbed “Toledo Adventure Trail” loop, visiting a friend’s organic farm and guesthouse and a Blue Morpho butterfly farm in San Miguel.

Welcome to the Jungle (Pt.2)

I take my ol’ man on an outing to visit a Mayan ruin and some very angry waterfalls, before we all head to Ixcacao chocolate for a traditional Belizean lunch and chocolate tasting.

Caye Caulker IV

In mid-June, Lori and I returned for our fourth time to Caye Caulker to introduce my parents to the Isle of Go-Slow and to bid farewell (for now) to the caye that started it all for us here in Belize.

Tiger Cave!

We spend Belize Labor Day (May 1) hiking through the jungle to Toledo’s own Tiger Cave to commune, yet again, with the Mayan Underworld of Xibalba.

Caye Caulker III

We take the Caye Caulker Water Taxi a third time to this quirky and beautiful island. With Lori’s parents along for the ride, we visit old stand-bys and new favorites.
