Sue and Carlos are well known to our past guests, they occasionally will take side trips to check out other parts of Belize. Sue had one of these adventures last week in Cayo, and was kind enough to do a write up and pictures of your trip! Side note, a lot of people who live here find they have to make trips to Belmopan for paperwork, licenses, etc - and this is a great reason to extend your time, since you are making the trip anyway, to visit one of the many amazing, rustic to luxury jungle resorts. You can find a huge range of prices and experiences.
One of the perks of living in Belize, is that when we have a couple of days off we are able to enjoy other parts of this beautiful country.
We needed to go to immigration in the capital city of Belmopan first. We spent one night at Rock Farm Guesthouse. Which is also the home of Belize Bird Sanctuary. Only a 15 minute drive from Belmopan. It was the perfect place start. Having your coffee on the porch as the birds are starting their day is not only an amazing site, but the sounds they make are amazing to listen to.
Sharing breakfast with a chachalaca.
From there went headed to San Ignacio, a charming city in the hills of the Cayo district. We had a great time just relaxing by strolling down Burns Avenue where there is a nice pedistrian street with shops, bars and restaurants.
Lunch at Guava Limb Cafe
Our pontoon, complete with a bbq grill for lunch on the river.
We had a great time getting to know more of the country we live in and can’t wait to explore more in the future.
