I would like to visit a Belize rain forest for a once -in-a-lifetime opportunity to see nature up close and learn about the lush variety of plants and animals that still live in their natural habitat before they are lost – just the way the diversity of life has been lost where I live. The diversity is greater, the colors are brighter and more exotic in Belize, with rare tropical birds and lush native flowers. The Mayans that lived in Belize long ago have left archaeological treasures that I would love to explore and learn about. A trip to Belize would be an experience I will always remember, especially if I get to see the Great Blue Hole.
The days were heavenly and the nights just magical. By the time we had to say goodbye we were like two teenagers in love again, and arrived back home refreshed and feeling able to cruise through the rest of the winter. Our friends all commented on our tans and how happy we looked (our new expertise at making mango daiquiris no doubt adding to their enthusiasm) and I’ll always be grateful for that night we decided to try Belize. To steal a line from the movie Casa Blanca, this is the start of a beautiful relationship, and a major addition to ours.
Between technology and the city lifestyle we feel at times disconnected . We would love to enjoy the peaceful bliss of the spa above the Macal River or relaxing in the comfort of a magnificent Jungle Lodge. Sharing photos with my friends of your beautiful place has indeed made them think that one needs to stop and live vicariously at least once.
I enjoy having adventures, especially with my fiancé along side me. Belize embodies that sprit from its vast rainforests, to the Mayan Ruins, to world class diving and cave exploring. And coming from upstate New York where 85 degrees is considered a heat wave, I can’t wait to experience is the sunny hot days that Belize has to offer. The Belizean coast is a place I could see spending an entire afternoon, just sitting on the beach with uninterrupted ocean in front of us and a rainforest behind us.
My problem, although not really a problem, would be how to fit in everything I want to see and do in the time that I have. The medicinal trail, creatures of the night, Mountain Pine Ridge, ATM, morning birding, horseback, Tikal overnight, natural history center, butterfly farm, canoe, biking are just a few of the things on my must do list! Uh-oh, I might have to make a 2nd trip, or 3rd .
Last spring break I went on an alternative spring break trip to San Ignacio, Belize with twelve other members from my school for a writing class. We came and volunteered at ProWorld for two weeks. The experience I had in those two weeks put my college years to shame. It’s different going from hopping from party to party to hopping from waterfall to river to Mayan ruin. I can tell you one thing for sure, sitting on top of Xunantunich was the most I’ve ever felt alive. An emotional void had been filled in me, and I knew that’s where my heart would reside.
