Way over at Belize life is beautiful!

Yes way down over across Belize life is beautiful. I heard a lot about it as diving and fishing and retirement place for years. I have the chance to visited it for  a week, and I agree. However, it is catchy and sublime, one begin to think about why not a retirement there…. Belize.

The tourist board is here http://www.travelbelize.org/  and my best area Placencia, http://placencia.com/ , and again some others http://www.sanpedroscoop.com/2014/01/independence-mango-creek-hokey-pokey-ferry-big-creek-port-cardies.html

I had a different approach than most; coming from Chetumal ,Mexico, by car crossing the border (paying 306 BDollars) with my French passport, glorious trip. We started at the top of the country on the road from Corozal, on the corozal-progresso road downward bypassing Belize City, then on the western road to Belmopan (the official Capital city), continuing to Dandriga, then Independance/Mango Creek, to Placencia.

I saw picturesque colorful buses zigzagging the small country and in Belize city horse wagon and mini bus ride like a little train ride. Wonderful architecture, some gloriously rich, and above all , gorgeous beaches like the one at Placencia.

We went by the craftmarket in Belize City, nice with many souvenirs and all in USDollars. The Casino still imposing and the hôtels and restos we went.

The Ramada Princess hotel Calypso restaurant right on the bay. This is a great complex with hotel casino, and restaurants just near city center and the craftmarket, we ate here at the Calypso Beach Restaurant. wonderful fried fish whole from the catch of the day, and the local beer Belikin;  http://www.ramada.com/hotels/belize/belize-city/ramada_belize_city_princess/hotel-overview

We stopped by for the great WiFi at Rose’s bar restaurant in Placencia, and did some groceries at Ming Supermarket  near the post office in Placencia. The best area was by Barefoot bar and we stop at the funky Tupsy Tuna bar in Placencia by the beach, great ambiance. We stayed at the Paradise Resort ,wonderful accommodation, great hosts, funny people,and super views of the ocean not to mention the drinks at the bar and the Karaoke.

On the way back to Mexico, we entered Belize City, a bit more of  a little town with a nice beachwall along the ocean. We continue north on the Western road towards Chetumal Mexico to take our plane to Mexico City. The excuse for another post later.

Belize will be remember ,and will keep an eye for that retirement spot… Cheers.
