Following tradition, Derek had the chance to get down to Belize again this year. He's a few shots from his trip...
The most exciting aspect of traveling is discovering the different cultures and landscapes that define a region. In early May, I was fortunate to take part in an excursion to Belize. This Caribbean coastal country is rich with culture going back to the ancient Mayan civilization through the British rule in former British Honduras. The present day Belize is becoming an amalgamation of even more international cultures from North America, Europe, and Asia. The topical geography and enriched cultures of this region creates a multi facet destination for adventure, enrichment, and relaxation.
We spent 3 days in the Placencia Peninsula and 2 days in the western border town of San Ignacio.
Trolling for fish with Splash Diving Company. They also offer scuba and snorkling!
Ziplining through the Caribbean jungle at Calico Jacks Village.
