My perfect Belize vacation

3 December 2010 No Comment

I was bitten by the travel bug when I was only nine years old.  My mom had recently accepted a position with American Airlines and for the first time we were able to use her flight benefits to fly to Hawaii and island hop between the islands.  After that, I knew I wanted to travel the world and see what it had to offer.

I read an article about the Hummingbird Highway in Belize a year ago and saw pictures of what I thought was the most beautiful tropical paradise yet. After reading more about the country,  I knew I had to find a way to get there.  My perfect Belize vacation would start when my plane landed in Belize City.  The first thing I would do when I landed is to go to a local restaurant to try some rice, beans and stewed chicken.  You can learn a lot about a country’s culture by eating their native food, and nothing starts a vacation off right like some good home cooking.

After my belly was full I would hop in a car and drive to the Cayo district where I would check in to the Chaa Creek Adventure Lodge for some rest and relaxation in the jungle.  While in the Cayo district I would go river tubing, canoeing, and explore some of the Mayan ruins and caves.

I am especially excited to explore the Actun Tunichil Muknal cave,  which would be a huge test of my strength and endurance but I know would be totally worthwhile in the end when I reached the inside of the cave.  After the days exploring, I would love to relax at Chaa Creek and enjoy a Belikin by the pool or a massage at the spa.  The perfect finish to a trip to Belize would be spent on the coast sailing to one of the Cayes to snorkel for the day and soak up some sun before I had to fly back home to reality.
