Travel Story - Escape from paradise

Exploring the reefs and atolls of Belize



Page 4 of 4

For the next week we continued our island hopping, stopping periodically to snorkel or explore. From the postcard-perfect Cayes of Glovers Reef we made our way to Northeast Caye in the Pelican Islands, and finally back to the mainland at Placentia. The tiny town boasts a main street of cement and conch shells, just wide enough for two people to pass on foot. We followed it up to Omar's Cafe, ordered a beer and filled out our trip-assessment forms for Ecosummer – 10 out of 10 on all counts. And best of all there would still be good spring skiing at Whistler – just an 8 hour flight from one paradise to another.
