Tiny paradise, but Belize is still a paradise
Belize is not the country we talk about most, and I secretly hope it will continue to be so. Still! So many trumps!
Belize is on the Caribbean Sea. In Belize you can drink rum and aguardiente, but also whisky, which is mostly imported for retired Americans who get their tan pretty at a lower cost.
Hi, my name is Christine, i’m french, nice to meet you! Hello Belize!
The official language is English and the currency is the Dollar!
Belize is the Blue Hole, so much edge that you can see it from space. Divers looking for stamps in their logbook are in a hurry: for $120 per dive, note to amateurs.
This extraordinary site has amazed my generation, all fans of Cousteau and his expeditions.
It has become a popular destination for divers of all kinds, and the bottom is now littered with plastic bottles.
Belize is the second largest coral reef in the world. Yeah!
Be careful with your eyes, sharks, tropical fish, manatees (trichetus manatus), sea crocodiles and turtles are at home here, and the opportunity to visit them is a wonderful experience. No diving diploma is required, a simple mask is sufficient.
Belize is a place in the world because there are fewer and fewer of them
To explore this extraordinary seabed, you only had to take a boat for one day. It was not expensive, relaxed atmosphere, calm, good-natured. But you had to respect the rules: do not touch, do not disturb, do not take away, do not throw away, do not destroy.
Manatees, including a mother and her baby, swam quietly a few meters away, hundreds of sharks moved gracefully around us. Tuna, barracudas, rays, groupers, snappers, the spectacle was breathtaking. All we had to do was stay there, float to the surface or sink a few meters and do nothing but watch.
Belize is Caye Caulker an island for Robinson… and parties
By nightfall the few pubs were filled with people, locals and travellers
Belize is Lamanai: Mayan treasures and a living, lush jungle
Belize is San Ignacio, a small paradise for adventurers in search of discovery
In the evening we went in search of the tarantulas (also (falsely) called tarantulas), which we discovered in the beam of our spotlights. The owner was a lover of arachnids and knew a lot about them. It is not about killing them or frying them, but only about watching them and admiring the perfection of these wild creatures and killing the stupid fantasies people have about them.
Between the ocean and the jungle, Belize is rich in many ways
Escape the Americanized tourist centers and the inhospitable city of Belize. This country deserves better than that. It has a history with a capital H, magnificent flora and fauna, temples hidden in the forests and tranquil rivers.
Belize is a land of adventure just waiting to be discovered, far from the mercantile travel agencies.
There is so much to see and experience in Guatemala that it is difficult to summarize. Volcanoes to climb, lakes, forests, caves, ancient Mayan ruins… and warm Guatemalans, your choice!
