You would think that waking up early for a 20 minute bus ride to a river, then a 45 minute boat ride through a river/swamp system would be a boring way to get around but on the contrary I found it to be the idea way to travel. There is something about boats, Belize and water. More boats please!

Anyway we spent the day walking through a cool rain forest and climbing increasingly taller temples. Trees everywhere with constant humidity which goes hand in hand with rain forests. "Do not pick up anything off the ground!" said the tour guide as he talked constantly about everything related to the Mayan's and the temples and the alignment. Good fun. You can read more about the site on wikipedia

That last temple was so tall you can see the river in the distance above the rain forest canopy. It was truly breath taking. Blue skies all day.

The rope is not just for show.  It is pretty steep.

  1. So whats up with you and Belize? It seems you go there pretty often. I should probably check it out as well, I have Belizean friends who could show me around... Is it expensive?

  2. I went there for a wedding in august 2014. Spent 12 days. Took 1200 photos and some video. What you are seeing now is a ripple in the sea of that trip. it is comparable to staying at a hotel in Jamaica except with more cantaloupe.
