    Placencia - Day 1

    March 19, 2020 in Belize ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Felt sad checking out of our dream cabana in hopkins and alexa was especially sad to leave all the doggies that she spent time with everyday.

    Had breakfast at a tiny mom and pop place. While sitting there, there must have been at least 20 different locals who walked in for one reason or another and every single person gave us a friendly hello. This country is over the top friendly everywhere we go, and especially Hopkins. Everyone walking by on the street says hi. While driving, everyone on the sidewalk waves. Even guys doing roadwork will stop, smile and wave.

    The drive to Placencia is only an hour and a lot of the drive is along some pretty coastline and through some pretty swank neighbourhoods. I had an apartment rented which took us a long time to find. My mapping app and had its location incorrectly mapped.

    While asking for directions, the person referred to my mom as my wife. Thats twice that has happened! I'm not sure how to feel about that lol.

    Spent the afternoon at the beach, sipping beers and jumping in and out of the ocean. The beach is very pretty but we cant help but compare everything to hopkins. Man, we are so spoiled haha.

    And its so quiet everywhere. This place is wall to wall resorts and hotels and its mostly empty at every turn.

    Stormy transition day

    January 26, 2019 in Belize ⋅ 🌙 22 °C

    Wild rain storm awakens us. Just a bit misty as palapas hold. Morning is grey yet we prepare to leave. Load into little boat again. Fine start to boat ride and then seas get rough and we get wet. Rain follows and we get wetter. Back to the marina and we are drenched. Make it to road to catch bus to hokey pokey ferry. A bit of walking is involved though the day has cleared up. Make it to placencia though clueless on where to go. Finally find our cabana and head out on beach walk. Italian food for dinnerRead more

    January 28, 2019 in Belize ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Up early to watch sunrise after windy night. A tad bit cooler but still quite tropical. Rent bikes and go for a long ride on beach cruisers up the peninsula. Lots of development. Swim and beach walk before watching final sunset. Dinner on the beach and of course gelato.Read more

    Placencia, Belize

    January 31, 2015 in Belize ⋅ ⛅ 0 °C

    Vanaf Caye Caulker gaan we met de boot en daarna met het openbaar vervoer naar Placencia. De rit was eigenlijk een toer opzich. Fantastische hard lachende mensen, allemaal lekker eten dat tussentijds verkocht wordt en natuurlijk de reggea muziek. Toen moesten we opzoek naar een hostel. In belize nemen ze het niet zo nou met tijd en werk. Dus we hadden een hostel gemailt en geen antwoord gekregen, toen hadden we een ander hostel op het oog, maar daar was niemand van de staf aanwezig, na wat rondlopen vinden we eindelijk een kamer maar... het was boven een chinees reataurant, onze kamer rook naar de keuken en het was naast een voetbalveld. Toen de voetbal afgegelopen was konden we eindelijk lekker slapen. Tot dat we wakker werder gemaakt door een kakkerlak.. Die liep maar liefst over vir zn hoofd. We hebben dus de hele nacht bij elk kriebeltje wakker gelegen. De volgende dag zijn we naar het strand gegaan en daar dus maar heerlijk in de zon gaan slapen. Dat maakte de nacht eigenlijk weer goed.Read more

    A lazy day

    January 25, 2019 in Belize ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    A bit cloudy and a bit windy makes for book reading. Attempt a few snorkel trios but waves are a bit much. Do see rays and sharks. Go back by snorkel entry point and see lobster and cool black and yellow fish. Last sunset and fish fillets curry veg and brown rice for dinner.Read more
