San Pedro, Belize… and Getting There.

I’m back to blogging Belize! To get down there, we changed planes in Miami, and from there took a two-hour flight to Belize City, which is a port city on the mainland of Belize. Our first destination was San Pedro, a town on Ambergris Caye, which is an island just off the coast of Belize. So we went through customs and then got our tickets for TropicAir, the plane that took us on a twenty minute flight to the island. This was a puddle jumper, people. American Eagle is not a puddle jumper, THIS was a puddle jumper. It sat about 10 people plus the pilot, and we took pictures out the window for the whole flight.

Here is the plane we flew to San Pedro.


These are some cool shots taken from the air of the Caribbean Sea!

Our first full day in Belize was spent exploring the town of San Pedro. It was so much fun! San Pedro is a neat little beach town that definitely operates on Island Time. It is full of Belize culture. We did a lot of shopping that first day. The people in Belize are incredibly friendly and hospitable. Laid back doesn’t begin to describe their culture. Our resort was about 2 miles from the center of town. So…. we rented a golf cart! It was great fun.

While San Pedro is a town, per se, it’s also right on the beach. We got some great shots of the beach there. This one is my personal favorite. It really captures both the laid-back, relaxing vibe of place and the sheer beauty of it.

And here are a couple of shots of the town of Sand Pedro itself.


More to come in later posts!!! 🙂
