Postcards of The Day: Finding My Slice of Paradise in Belize | Belize in Social Media | Scoop.it

This is a place that is magical.

 

"...On the eve of my birthday last week, I visited a place that rendered me speechless. Those who know me know that’s quite a feat. I’ve seen many stunning islands, resorts and sights – all over the Caribbean and right here in Belize. But I’ll admit – this one now ranks in my top 3 most memorable travel experiences. It even pains me to post this photo, because it reminds me of how much I miss being there and how magical my time was!.."

I've known the people at Mountain Equestrian Trails for a long time.  Aaron and Jim have knowledge about surviving back-a-bush as much as anyone in the country.  This is an awesome opportunity.

The new survival training package is a perfect alternative for travelers who are looking for a unique learning and cultural experience when they visit Belize.  The group will visit Mayan ruins, hang out with a Maya family, and spend some time in local villages.

Belize Briefs: Tips, Quirks & Foibles After 2.5 Months in Belize | Belize in Social Media | Scoop.it

Great first hand account of a long term visit to Belize.  Quirks and foibles noted after almost three months of travel in Belize.

 

" We spent a total of 78 days traveling 1,540 miles through just about every inch of Belize (an impressive feat since driving from the northernmost point to the southernmost point in this tiny country is only 286 miles). We traveled all around Belize City, went bird watching in the Rio Bravo Conservation Area (just one of the places where we saw tons of the amazing birds in Belize), flew out to Ambergris Cay, drove down to Hopkins to look for whale sharks, headed out to Turneffe Atoll and made it all the way down to Punta Gorda plus all of the Mayan ruins, jaguar sanctuaries, cave adventures and dive sites in between..."

"...Through one of the locals in San José Succotz we arranged a trek to the Five Sisters, in the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest. Since this region of Belize relies on tourism as a huge source of it’s economy, this area did not have too many local buses. If you were a tourist and wanted to go to one of the many beautiful natural sites in this region, you would either need to hire a car or take a tour. We did neither..."

7 Common Travel Guide Euphemisms and How To Read Between the Lines | Belize in Social Media | Scoop.it

Humorous take on guide books...I don’t know about you, but when I read one of my trusty indie travel guides (Lonely Planet, Rough Guides, Let’s Go, etc.), I sometimes chuckle. Why?

Well, I’ve been using them so long now that I usually know what they’re really saying—regardless of how much they try to dance around or soften things (not saying I blame them, of course).
