Songs I heard in Cuba

I visited Cuba at the beginning of this year and aside from disconnecting from social media, I was reminded of how amazing the Caribbean is. But I’m not only talking about the beaches, I’m talking about the music. Cuba reminded me a lot of Belize: its very relaxing, everyone’s super friendly, nature is everywhere and […]

Belize photographers share their best photos of 2013

At the beginning of this year I reached out to a few of the top photographers in Belize and asked them to feature their best photographs of 2013.

Belize Tourism Statistics 2013

Editor’s note: The Belize tourism statistics for 2013 are in and I must say I am impressed with the numbers. Compared to other countries, 294,000 tourist arrivals (roughly) in a year may sound meagre but for a country with a population of 330,000 it makes a huge impact to the local economy.

San Pedro’s Best Food Spots

San Pedro has the best restaurants in Belize, period. This is due to the fact that Ambergris Caye is Belize’s most popular tourist destination and it has been that way for many, many, many years.

My favourite Belize blog posts of 2013

Although John McAfee’s media attention dominated the beginning of 2013, I won’t include any of those articles in my top Belize blog posts of 2013, haha. But thinking about it, maybe I should, McAfee’s ludicrous behaviour and the international media’s love for him (his actions/ thoughts), brought Belize the most attention it has EVER received. […]

Unplug from social media
