The four flights went rather uneventfully except for the super drunk guy on the plane in Vancouver who puked everywhere and had to be escorted off the plane by the cops! When I saw the cops I was hoping for something altogether more exciting than too much alcohol.
The Belize airport feels like a colonial outpost which I suppose it is. There was a live band playing just for our arrival! The signage and furniture I swear is all from the 40s.
Caye Caulker itself is incredible. Sand roads, palm trees, friendly people, no cars, just bikes and golf carts!! Even the street animals are fat and healthy.
The island is just waking up. It’s 6:00 am and the hotel help is pottering about, there are exotic bird calls surrounding me, and what’s that overhead? Oh, just a magnificent frigate bird.
So I’ll be off the grid for a few days on a cruise run by Ragamuffin. You can google them and look up the overnight cruise. Looking forward to using the GoPro!
I will be following the island motto: go slow.
