A Guide to Belize: From Chocolate to Caves

A Guide to Belize: From Chocolate to Caves | Belize You Inspire Me | Scoop.it
In this vibrant guide to Belize, Maria Russo takes you on an armchair tour of the country's food, beaches, natural wonders and magnificent ruins.
Alexia Malo 's insight:

If you want to trade the effervescent spirit of San Pedro for complete tranquility, sail away to El Secreto, an ultra-luxury resort located on the North side of the island. The 13-villa resort retreat is accessible only by boat,  tucked away in its own private beachfront enclave. The owners vision was to fuse “exotic style of the South Pacific, with the authentically relaxed-nature of the Caribbean, while also paying careful attention to every detail of the resort’s design and service.”

A BELIZEAN TRADITION: CATCHING BLUE CRABS

A BELIZEAN TRADITION: CATCHING BLUE CRABS | Belize You Inspire Me | Scoop.it
Belizean Crab Stew Recipe Click image for full recipe  
Alexia Malo 's insight:
 If catching the crabs is not your cup of tea, you can buy them from the young men at just Bz$10.00 per bucket; they arrive all hours of the day but bring your own paper bag or sack. The crabs are not separated by size; just whatever can fit in their buckets; small, medium or large. Be careful when getting ready to cook your crabs; their claws are small, but can inflict a nasty pinch. The best way to handle them is with tongs. The favorite crab dish in Beliz eis crab soup and a large steamer pot is a must. The crabs must be submerged in boiling water and carefully cleaned and set aside for your soup. For the soup you will need a generous amount of coconut milk, green plantains, Matilda foot (grated young plantain), and some of your favorite spices. It should take about 30 minutes and served with white rice steamed with coconut milk. Summer time is the tyme to get cracking with blue crabs in the town ofLadyville,Belize.

10 Reasons to Relocate to Belize

10 Reasons to Relocate to Belize | Belize You Inspire Me | Scoop.it
While the decision to relocate to a lush, tropical country may have been an easy choice to make, the process of actually picking the country may be an entirely different story.
Alexia Malo 's insight:

If you are looking to slow down in a tropical climate, surrounded by a welcoming, English speaking community, Belize may be the place to dig in your roots. Plan a visit and soak in all of the aspects of Belizean life, and when the time is right, start searching for your own little piece of paradise to call home.

How to Do Belize on a Budget |

How to Do Belize on a Budget | | Belize You Inspire Me | Scoop.it
Yes, the words
Alexia Malo 's insight:
Stay in Affordable Parts of the Country

Head to either Hopkins, Caye Caulker or the Cayo District, all of which offer the widest range of affordable hotels, guesthouses, or even camping options for the backpackers among you. On Caye Caulker, look into Dirty McNasties for hostel-type quarters, or Caye Caulker Plaza Hotel for mid-range. In Hopkins, Tipple Tree Beya or Whistling Seas Guest House are excellent bets. The interior, western area of Cayo has the most options of all, with everything from hostels to quaint guesthouses like Casa Blanca.

Perché innamorarsi del Belize

Perché innamorarsi del Belize | Belize You Inspire Me | Scoop.it
Unico Paese anglofono del Centro America, poco più grande del Friuli Venezia Giulia, il Belize è piccolo ma accogliente.
Alexia Malo 's insight:

Unico Paese anglofono del Centro America, poco più grande del Friuli Venezia Giulia, il Belize è piccolo ma accogliente. Ex covo di pirati, oggi amatissimo dai turisti americani, tiene a bada Messico e Guatemala, per conquistarsi un affaccio sul Mar dei Caraibi. Assurto recentemente alle cronache mondiali per le mirabolanti vicende del programmatore statunitense John McAfee (creatore dell’omonimo antivirus), accusato a dicembre scorso dell’omicidio del suo vicino di casa, il Paese è poco conosciuto dagli italiani, nonostante le numerose attrattive turistiche.

I suoi spettacolari ambienti naturali sono popolati da giaguari e squali balena lunghi oltre 6 metri, da una popolazione multietnica e da secolari templi nascosti nella giungla. Un eterogeneo universo tropicale del quale mi sono istantaneamente innamorata.

Cayo Highlighted in Brickell Magazine

Cayo Highlighted in Brickell Magazine | Belize You Inspire Me | Scoop.it

Cayo and the San Ignacio Resort Hotel really steal the article that just came out in Brickell magazine.  The article, Breathtakingly Belize, starts on page 130.  Oddly, they didn't post many pictures of Cayo, instead going for the overused sea shots, but they do have the SIRH and Cahal Pech.

 

"Adventure reigns in this part of the country and I learned a lot on this leg of the trip about The Great Outdoors.  The most amusing being that male iguanas have 2 penises; the most useful that bags of water on a table will keep the flies away; and the saddest that the average lifespan of butterflies is less than a month...but at least they’re drunk on nectar the whole time!

 

A brief jaunt to Chaa Creek, an award-winning eco-luxury lodge with its own on-site organic farm and open-air spa, yielded encounters with tree monkeys, tail- thrashing black iguanas and elusive jaguars, among many other critters.  Bring water and a spray mister if you visit: There’s no A/C on site.  My favorite part of the experience in this part of Belize was by far the people.  They are a sweet, peaceful bunch.  A walk through the neighborhood features quaint little shops, small businesses operating out of homes and lots of roadside farmer’s markets."

The Catlin Seaview Survey is organized by the University of Queensland and promoted by the Catlin Insurance Company. It is a global campaign and a race against time to study coral reef.

Will Moreno's curator insight, August 12, 2013 6:21 AM

Seeing a healthy improvement in our reef system does not mean we can stop doing what we were doing to make it better. It does not mean we can take advantage of it by allowing cruise tourism to flourish even more therefore putting an added strain on our fragile reef ecosystem. 

 

By no means am I  saying cruise tourism is a bad thing. I am just saying responsible cruise tourism strategies need to be in place.

Belizean Spotlight: National Hero of Belize

Belizean Spotlight: National Hero of Belize | Belize You Inspire Me | Scoop.it

PHILLIP S.W. GOLDSON (1923-2001) Born of humble parentage on July 25, 1923, in Belize City, Belize,  Philip Goldson started life as a person of modest means and was able  within his 78 years to soar above the  various diverse circumstances that would govern his illustrious life.  His early education was at St. Mary’s Primary School in Belize City, and he went on to study at night to successfully obtain the Cambridge  University Overseas Junior Certificate in 1939, and the Senior School  Certificate in 1941

Alexia Malo 's insight:

Political career: After working briefly  as a civil servant for six years, Goldson became enticed by the  beginnings of the Nationalist Movement in Belize of the late 1940s and  early 1950s. The route into politics at that time was by way of the  labor movement, and in 1949 he became the National Organizer of the  General Workers Union, and later General Secretary.

Before moving to Belize I had made a pledge with myself to always be open to new things, to always stay curious, and to explore all that Belize had to offer - whether it be just around the corner in Cayo or countrywide. After all these years... I still feel the same and still desire to follow a Belize map to its edges. Let the journey continue to unfold before me. I am having the time of my life.
