Back from Belize

We made it back in one piece! 8 days and 8 planes later we made it back from our amazing honeymoon. It was the first relaxing vacation I think I have ever been on! Here is a short recap on our time spend in San Pedro on Ambergris Caye, Belize.

White sand and the ocean, view from right outside our room.

We snorkeled a ton! Lots of beautiful tropical fish, sting rays, nurse sharks, coral, and even some really cool color changing fish.

Pool at our resort

We spent a day sailing on a catamaran, just us two, rum punch, and the captain. Oh yeah and freshly grilled lobster, fish and veggies were fuel after 2 hours of straight snorkeling at a cool place called Mexico Rocks.

On our adventure to the mainland, we did cave tubing, zip-lining, and visited the Xunantunich Mayan Ruins. I loved being able to float on an inner tube down a river through a cave and later swim in the river through the jungle! What an adventure, and it was so beautiful.

The island we stayed on had one main town, San Pedro, and was super small and full of some interesting nightlife. We just had to check out this crazy event called the chicken drop. Basically the chicken drop is a gambling game in which you pay $.50 a square for a number and hope that the chicken poopoos on that number. Haha! It was a lively event in which locals and visitors alike hang out for some socializing, a drink, and live entertainment. On more than  one occasion the chickens would not do their thing, so it was slightly uneventful, but still fun nonetheless.

It was a trip to remember forever! I will post food pictures from the trip later ;)

Have a great week everyone!
