so here is my sis’ review of belize:

<span style=”font-family: GE Inspira; color: #0000ff; font-size: x-small;”>We had a fantastic time, the resort, Matachica Resort was great, perfect for us.  The beach at the resort was great, they had the seagrass where the water began and went out about 20 feet, which was shallow and then it was clear water and white sand.  They raked the beach everyday to clear out the seagrass and other debris that washed ashore.  After that it was clear blue water with white sand for half a mile out until the reef.  That was shallow about 5ft to 6 ft deep.  The weather was perfect tanning weather, warm, sunny but breezy so it was not hot, easy to just fall asleep while tanning, which i did.  We ate grouper and red snapper everyday, we had chicken taquitos once, otherwise everything else was seafood………yummy.  We went sailing, kayaking, biking and snorkeling.  It was a great week, we were sorry to leave <span class=”il”>belize.  Our “casita” was great, it was cute and breezy.  Below is the link for our resort.

I went to Belize and had a nice time. I stayed at Robert’s Grove in Placencia. I have also heard that Ambergis Caye is very nice. I got see some ruins as well (although not a major site), but that can be a made into a day trip depending on where you are staying. There are many types of activities like ziplining, hiking, etc. as stated above.

  • Wedding: October 2009 - Church Ceremony/Reception at The Waterford House

We stayed on Amergris Caye (here).  I will warn you that we decided to take the ferry instead of flying to the island to save $$ and it added an extra 4-5 hours of travel time.  We didn’t book excursions until we arrived.  We were able to leave from our lodging via boat to get to the excursions (they picked us up).  We did one trip to Lamanai (the famous temple of the jaguar is located here) and one that involved cabe tubing.

We went and stayed an Blancaneux – LOVED it.  Also loved Belize over all – beautiful, romantic, full of history (Mayan) and cheap!  Would go back in a heartbeat. 

Also worth visiting Tikal, Guatemala – largest Mayan site.  One of my favorite trips and I have been all over!!

  • Wedding: June 2009

We went to Belize on our honeymoon.  We stayed at Costa Maya Reef Resort (Time Share Trade).

We loved the Island (Ambergris Caye).  The snorkeling was great and the people were really nice.  We did a day trip to Xunantunich, which was amazing but a little rushed.  The resort was just ok, I wouldn’t stay there again.

We had our groceries edelivered by Mata Grande and I highly recommend them.  It was so nice to have everything there for us and not have to spend time shopping.  The people who own the store are really nice and easy to work with.   http://shop.matagrandegrocery.com/
