What an incredible week. Rather than pen a lengthy treatise about the many wonders of Belize, I will prepare a series of bite-size posts with highlights from the trip.
Below are photos of the Blackbird Caye Resort, where we stayed for the diving portion of the trip. The resort is accessible by local jumper plane, but we took the more commonly used 2-hour boat ride from Belize City.
The solitude and isolation of the resort are reminiscent of Gilligan's Island. Coconut trees, hermit crabs and a few other people are all that share this little slice of heaven with you. The local dive spots are mediocre, but it is a wonderful place to detach from the world.
