When our Mexican visas were about to expire we started researching how to travel from Mexico to our next country on the list: Belize!
After doing some research about the night bus to Belize City from Playa del Carmen, I didn’t really want to do it. The bus would cross the border at around 3am and lots of people has experienced the guards there trying to trick them into paying to enter Belize (which you should NOT have to do) just to stuff the money in their pockets.
Also, we would have to go in to the officers at the border alone and I really wasn’t up for the fight with the border control in the middle of the night all by myself. I would totally be ripped off. So we decided to look into sailing from Mexico to Belize. (more…)
Yesterday it was Jonas’ birthday. We had a calm and lovely day on Caye Caulker. We had fry jacks for breakfast, hung out by the ocean, went for coffee and mini doughnuts, talked a lot about future projects, bought the bus ticket for Guatemala, worked a little, went for a walk around the island, had dinner with our favorite Goats, went for ice cream and just relaxed at our perfect little cabana.
But it was also our last day on Caye Caulker. And is night time came my mood just went downhill. I don’t want to leave. I really don’t want to leave!
Our visa expires today. We’ve bought the bus ticket. There’s really no turning back, but Caye Caulker has been treating us so well that I just don’t want to leave. (more…)
Caye Caulker, Belize. Go slow!
In Monaco this summer we couchsurfed with the most amazing guy. He was also hosting four other people (he had 6 surfers every day – wow!). Two of them were Amy and Myles, a married couple from New Zealand.
They had been 6 weeks in Central America before going to Europe, and naturally we had a million questions for them.
One of the things they talked about did not excite me at all: rastafarians. Slow living, lots of marijuana and just plain laziness.
It sounded like hell to me. (more…)
