    plane ride to ambergris caye:
    the trip only took 17 minutes and was painless. the plane flies really low and you can get the lay of the land.

      blue tang inn:
      we stayed here for a week and it was perfect for us. we didn’t want to be secluded anywhere, we wanted to be right in town to experience the food and culture. because we were right in town, there wasn’t much of a beach, but just a short walk in either direction there were nice and bigger beaches. there was breakfast served every morning and the hotel staff was very kind. it felt like a b&b atmosphere, not a hotel. they was a nice card and wine upon our arrival.

        san pedro:
        the town of san pedro has a lot of hustle and bustle for a small town. the island is only about 4 blocks wide and there are stores and restaurants everywhere. you can get anything from street food to really classy island dining. the main mode of transportation is golf carts and generally the only cars are taxis. there are tons of stray dogs- most are totally healthy and the island takes care of them, but some of them are pretty mangy and limp around.. it’s kind of sad. but the people are so kind.. they always like to chat.

          altun ha / maruba jungle spa-
          our second trip was to the ruins of altun ha. First we took a boat to the mainland.

          when we got to the ruins, our group was literally the only group of people there. It was really amazing, but be careful- lots of tarantulas!

          next we drove (in a school bus!) to maruba jungle spa. it’s literally just cut out of the jungle so it’s incredibly lush. we had a mud bath which was really relaxing and also took a dip.

          on the way home we stopped in bomba village and bought some wood crafts


          ultimately, belize was really the perfect honeymoon for us. we’re not really resort people, and although we loved our wedding week.. the whole sprawling hotel thing is just not for us. belize is much more gritty and real and it’s a place where you can actually interact with the locals on a personal level rather than only when they serve you a drink. there is also something for everyone. you can do every water activity imaginable and a quick boat ride to the mainland takes you to lush jungles and ruins. guatemala is also just a day trip away, although we didn’t make it there. If you have any questions, let me know!!

                This truly looks like a dream vacation to me. I am the same I am getting married at the Dreams resort in PV, but I am more of a home grown kind of vacation girl. I may take this trip also, because it looks right up my ally.

                Congrats.
