If you’re planning on traveling to Ambergris Caye, you probably aren’t specifically doing it for any of its festivals – but you’re totally missing out if you are not, because the island has a ton of fantastic events! Throughout the year, Ambergris Caye, or should I say the town of San Pedro throws more parties than […]
On Saturday, August 1st, the 2015 Belize Tourism Awards was held at the Holiday Hotel in beautiful Ambergris Caye (Belize’s most popular tourist destination). A better location couldn’t have been chosen since the reception venue was celebrating 50 years of being in business. This is a big deal in Belize because the travel industry is […]
Belize is late in the game for catering to backpackers but in the past few years many new and impressive hostels have been popping up all over the country. The original place for budget travellers has always been Caye Caulker but now it’s extending to the South and West of Belize. Matter of fact, on […]
If you regularly read this blog you’ve noticed that I lately haven’t been publishing consistently. This is due to a few factors, predominantly because I got a new apartment and had to move. Toronto has a serious, serious problem, it lacks rentals and prices are ridiculous. Also, I’ve been amazed by what I’ve seen during […]
San Ignacio town, or as it’s locally known “Cayo”, is the ideal place to go in Belize if you are seeking adventure. This small quaint town acts a hub for travelers in search of jungle expeditions, tours to ancient Maya cities, caves and countless other eco activities that get you up close to nature. Visitors […]
One of my most popular articles is the recipe for Panty Ripper – an easy-to-make Belizean drink that is famous. I imagine, after a couple weeks of being back from Belize, someone remembers how enjoyable the drink was and decides to look it up. Actually, they might not even love the taste and just want to […]
Come to Punta Gorda hungry and one place you’ll sure hear recommended is Gomier’s. Located just to right of the “Welcome to PG” sign at the entrance to town, Gomier’s Restaurant is a true PG landmark. No rice and beans here—instead, you’ll have your choice of fresh seafood, fish burgers, veggie burritos, curry shrimp and tofu, […]
Xunantunich is my favourite Mayan ruin and it is not because it is one of the most popular archeological sites in Belize or because it is very near to my hometown of San Ignacio. It is because it brings good memories: memories of lonely hikes on Sundays, memories of me taking friends there, memories of […]
It took me a while to figure out what exactly it is that sets Belize apart from many other travel destinations. Some of you may think it’s the beautiful Cayes, where the Caribbean Sea washes ashore to sandy beaches and the cool shade of palm trees. That suggestion sounds likely, after all, Ambergris Caye, Belize’s most […]
How will you be remembered? Many people live their lives without leaving a mark on society. This isn’t the case for Peter Tonti. Originally from the U.S., after completing a Peace Corps volunteer session in Belize in the 1970s, he decided to permanently live there. He set up shop in the tourism industry and helped […]
