Happy Friday Friends!
I’ve been wanting to have this post done for quite a while, but there was so much to cover. My amazing husband took me to Belize for my 44th birthday. The understatement is that I had fun. Fun isn’t even a word for this trip. It was more than I ever dreamed, and in my terms it was Magical.
Belize is beautiful. It’s stunning actually. There are many parts where there is a lack of money, but the people there are amazing. They are sweet, kind, generous and more than anything HAPPY! They are happy with their lives. We made friends there in such a short amount of time, but I will be back to see them. The island of Ambergris Caye is magnificent. There is so much to do and we really had the time of our lives.
THE RESORT/ GRANDE CARIBE
We stayed in a gorgeous, oceanfront condo at the Grande Caribe Resort that overlooked just about everything. The best part was hanging on our balcony each night ,with a good glass of wine watching the sunsets. I’m a sunset girl, and Belize has the most beautiful sunsets. Out condo was gorgeous and spacious, and the views couldn’t of been any better. I truly believe we had the BEST condo in the whole place. The people that worked there were so generous and sweet. We had our massages half the time on our balcony and then on the beach. They were so accommodating to us. The main way to get around Ambergris Caye is by golf cart. It is so fun. We rented a golf cart the whole week and drove around checking the island out. The resort had multiple pools and our condo had it’s own private one. They had a great rooftop restaurant called Rain. They had the best food with the best views of Ambergris Caye. The best back drops for photos I know. The Best place for breakfast and a good mimosa is Marbucks Coffee House. The owners , once again were delightful. The food was amazing.
I stayed right down the road from the best ecofriendly Yoga retreat. they held their classes at 9 am and I would drive the golf cart down for the class. It was in a rainforest setting and it was around the ocean. I can’t tell you how beautiful it was. They would hold meditation classes. The owners were so sweet. I have truly missed that place. Yoga is huge in Belize and now I know why there is such a calmness among the people.
THE TRUCK STOP IN AMBERGRIS CAYE
The Truck Stop was major fun. It is a place right off the road that has multiple stations, bars, games and live music all the time. That is where we met our friend ,Francisco. We truly miss him. It was like we had known him for years. They had the best ice cream and we met many people there. We will definitely be back to see him. We even got his number. LOL The Truck Stop is a major staple in Belize.
SECRETS BEACH IN BELIZE
Secrets Beach is a Must See for anyone traveling to Belize. We took the golf cart there. It was located about 6 miles away. The golf cart rides are so fun. You just meet people on the road. There is a bar and many little Belize artisan shops surrounding the Beach. The Beach has the most aqua blue water. That is an understatement. It was so beautiful. I didn’t want to leave. We hung out in the water all day, sipping the Best drinks. There is plenty of space to lay out, walk, and shop. The Best part for me was just taking in all the Beauty around me. It’s stunning.
SUNSET CRUISE /PARTY BOAT
This was one of the Best things about my trip, if not the BEST. We docked this massive boat with many people. The cruise was 4 hours long. I know you are probably thinking, WHAT? 4 hours… I have to say it was one of the Best 4 hours in my life. They have the music pumping, drinks flowing, and people are up dancing and singing. We met some kind people on that cruise too. The boat ride gets more fun as the night goes on . I guess many people had too many drinks. We stopped and watched the sunset while they served us a great dinner. I will never forget that fun night.
THE VICTORIA HOUSE RESORT
The Victoria House resort is a place I would love to stay the next time I visit Belize. Their spa is amazing. The grounds are that of an old plantation, and they made their hotel look magnificent. The main house is surrounded by these little plantation huts with private pools, and cute boutiques. They are on their own private beach, and its stunning. I will definitely be trying this place out next time. We were suppose to stay there originally, but they were sold out.
I could go on and on about this trip. I have so many amazing photos. Belize is truly an amazing place to visit. I’ve been to so many places, but this is definitely at the top. I will definitely be making another trip back .
