Un-Belize-able

April 27, 2011

After our day at Roatan Bay, I was completely relaxed and ready for Day 2’s excursion – ziplining and cave-tubing in Belize. This part of the trip was the most energy I exerted the entire cruise.

We docked in Belize City and I must admit, it wasn’t as nice as Roatan Bay. The city was extremely rundown and we were being peddled everything from hair braids to drugs. Like real, hardcore drugs. No thanks.

As soon as we set foot on land, we boarded a bus and drove about 1 1/2 hours to the middle of nowhere. It was amazing – we were literally in a jungle. Sure, there were touristy things here and there, but as our guide said, if you go past a certain “line” – the jungle becomes very real. Let’s just say I had my eye on that “line” the entire time!

First was the cave-tubing. Unlike the other groups ahead of us that stayed tied together of and pushed through by their guide, our tour guide allowed us to float freely along the waters to explore the caves and go at our own pace. These caves were unlike anything I have ever seen – it makes you feel really small and like you’re in an underground water world.

Next was the ziplining. It took me a few tries to get a hang of the brakes – which was your hand in a leather glove – but by the 2nd platform, I caught on and felt like a bird in a beautiful jungle canopy.

{I may look like a badass, but that’s because you can’t see the actual fear in my eyes}

{The buffet – hamburgers, spicy chicken, tostadas, bread pudding and local Belikin beer – are hamburgers and bread pudding Belizean?}
