BELIZE | Fri, 30 Dec 2011 | By doodledawn | Views [492]

Simple Food Done Well

BELIZE | Thu, 21 Apr 2011 | By sarahreinertsen | Views [371]

Orange Walk, Belize, LAMANAI ruins

BELIZE | Wed, 15 Dec 2010 | By djnlacey | Views [718]

Wow! Belize! I could not believe how nice everyone was as soon as we crossed the border.  So surprising and, so far, so much cheaper than expected.  We had some interesting monetary issues crossing the border and exchanging money but with only $13US, ... Read more >

Crime In Belize

BELIZE | Mon, 27 Sep 2010 | By safetyhub | Views [670]
