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.

Placencia

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.

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.

Belizean Cultural Day

We head out with Hillside students and staff to sample a “lee-bit” of Southern Belize including Q’eqchi basket weaving and tortilla making, Garifuna drumming, Mayan ruins, and a chilly swim into the depths of the Earth.
