Photo blog: Flying through the Air in Belize

6 November 2011 No Comment

Belize has a multitude of little sand islands, called cayes along its coast. The smaller cayes are nothing more than a pile of sand on some coral while the biggest one (Ambergris Caye) spans 40 by 1.6 km in size. Ambergris Caye is the most developed tourism destination in Belize with a big expat community enjoying fishing, scuba diving and hanging out at the pool.

Last week, I was fortunate enough to have to attend a training on Ambergris Caye. One of the perks of working in tourism is that you get to visit a lot of tourism destinations and nifty hotels.

On the way back (flying in a 9 seat Cessna) I took a couple of pictures of my commute from work:

Cayes are coral atoll with sand on top and vegetation on top of that.
