Belize: Inland Time
We did one last Bike/Run before we left the island. We spotted this fruit/vegetable stand and bought some fruit. The lady cut up the mango for us! Score! Mangoes are the worst to cut.
Yes, we ate 1/4 of a watermelon between us….
After a shower it was time for our last breakfast on the beach… I incorporated these “local ingredients” into my breakfast….
You can’t beat this view with breakfast! It was paradise…
We took a 13 passenger airplane back to the mainland. Ben sat in the co-pilot seat!
After a very bumpy ride we made it to our inland hotel – Black Rock Lodge.
Black Rock Lodge is so secluded! We were in the middle of the rainforest There was a hammock right outside our door.
The rooms are very minimal and rustic. It is an eco-lodge and feels like you’re “roughing” it on vacation a bit.All the guests eat together in an open air dining room. It has beautiful views.
The first thing we did was tubing down the river.
I did get pooped on though
We ate dinner at the Lodge. They have a set menu, but let you choose from a meat or veggie option. I chose the veggie option veggie option – it was chickpea curry with rice and veggies.
Dessert was an apple streusel – delicious
The rainforest is beautiful, but it’s a rainforest – this means bugs everywhere. I’m not a big fan. And I got pooped on!
