Belize Lodging | Tropical Education Center

I am sitting in this lovely cottage at the Tropical Education Center across the street from the Belize Zoo. It is dawn and I am listening to the 'whoop-da-doos'. They are calling to each other, back and forth across the swamp. The one from afar says, "Hey, whoop-da-doo, whoop-da-do." Then the one that is close answers. I hear a truck on the road. Now I know where the road is.

Belize Lodging | Seaside Inn

An affordable and comfortable choice for staying in Belize City is the Seaside Inn. There is a porch overlooking a brilliant view (of the seaside!)
The Inn is well located within a few blocks of the heart of town. Belize or western breakfast is available to order.

Lakes, Visits and Landslides (Country Guatemala, Area Lago de Atitlan, City San Marcos)

Anne & Ben's Trip Report


Okay, so hello, we spent some very relaxing days in San Marcos, a very small  town on Lago de Atitlan.  We basically went swimming, ate delicious food and did fantastic yoga classes every morning.  Unfortunately, I sprained my wrist or something in one of the classes. I saw a chiropractor yesterday (the only doctor I could find in Antigua on a Saturday, even at the hospital) and he said it  wasn't broken, so that's good news.

Tikal (Country Guatemala, City Coban)

Anne & Ben's Trip Report

After having a really great visit with friends in Belize we hurried across the border to Guatemala and Tikal.  We went into the park in the afternoon and walked through the ruins for sunset.  It was so beautiful, we climbed to the top of a pyramid that was built in 700 BC and had a view of other temples rising up through the jungle, it was awesome, the white buildings poking out through the tree.  We saw parrots and toucan flying from up there, it was really great.
