For our first half of the trip we are staying on an island called Ambergis Caye. This is the beach portion of our honeymoon. We will move to the mainland/inland for the rainforest/Mayan ruins for the second half.
I’m so excited to finally be here! We have been planning this trip since before the wedding and it always seemed so far away 🙂
They also upgraded our room since they knew it was our honeymoon! This hotel isn’t very fancy, but it’s got a great location, super friendly staff and a beach bar!
After we checked in we put on our swim suits and went down to the hotel’s pier for a swim. They have a hammock at the end of the pier that Ben enjoyed too.
Then, we walked into town to find dinner. The city center of San Pedro is about a 15 to 20 minute walk from where we are staying. It’s perfect because our hotel’s beach is very private, but we still have great access to everything in town!
Ben had a Belikin – it’s the national beer and is kinda rite of passage for visitors.
Finally we found this place open and willing to give us food! It’s a super informal place where there is no menu – everything is written on signs on the walls. This made ordering a little confusing since there were no descriptions.
The fish was amazing – and they gave me so much! FYI for those who love to travel – This meal for 2 people, with drinks was about $35.00 U.S. dollars not including tip. Again, this place was very informal, but prices on Amerbgis Caye are higher than most other parts of Belize because it’s a tourist town.
On the walk back to our hotel we stopped in an ice cream shop for a banana/chocolate smoothie. I had a few good gulps of it, but tried to leave it to Ben.
We have a fun day planned for tomorrow – hope you all are having a great weekend!
I can’t be too specific with details of the trip since I am posting quick style, but feel free to comment/email with questions and I will answer them when I get home.
