This adventure started with a magical series of events too long to describe in this post…. But brought us to a place I had always dreamed of visiting as my “trip of a lifetime”, with such a special person in my life. After a red-eye flight into Belize city, we made our way with a random group of Dutch men (shared a taxi piloted by their “man” Dennis) towards the downtown port area.
Upon being dropped off at the port and buying our tickets, Sean started the day off with a refreshing gulp of Belikin beer…to then find out it was 11 am…slight time change miscalculation. Switch to breakfast time.
With our newly earned few hours, we ventured to a beautiful oasis a few doors down called Spoonaz. Some COFFEE, messy ribs, and a nice convo with the owner about his multi-generational roots in the area refueled us for the next leg.
We boarded our first boat and enjoyed the 45 minute ride to Caye Caulker, a “backpackers” island north east of the city.
