Our second trip to Belize was a split between being inland and on the beach. We flew into Belize City, rented a car, and drove through the country until we arrived in Belmopan where we stayed at an amazing, quite, and secluded resort. We were there for 2 wonderful nights and had such a great time.
We relaxed and explored the area and even found a place to watch a little football (the Green Bay Packers, of course)!
Our last day we took an excursion, hiking up into the rainforest and then repelling down a 300 ft sink hole! It was scary and simply amazing at the same time and would suggest anyone to do this (if you dare).
At the bottom of the sink hole it was so much cooler (temperature wise) and amazing with all the different caves you could explore. Well worth the walk up and back.
After our excursion, we headed to the beach and stayed at another very nice resort in the village of Hopkins which was only 1 ½ hrs from Belmopan.
The fun of driving through the country is really getting to see the amazing countryside and how people live. It was absolutely beautiful and the people selling things along the way were so inviting and nice. When we got to Hopkins everything changed from rainforest to beach houses and resorts.
Not only was the resort right on the beach, our cabana walked right onto the beach. Nothing like having an amazing view of the beach and ocean right out your front door! We were ready to relax for our next 4 days on the beach. We walked along the beach, swam in the pool and lazed the days away.
While we were in Hopkins we had to take another snorkel excursion since we were in Belize, after all we are still on the second largest barrier reef! Now we get to see another part of the reef. The fish, coral and blue water that you see, really is just simply amazing! If snorkeling or scuba diving are what you like to do, I would definitely recommend Belize! Even if it’s not and the blue water and sandy beaches is all your looking for they have that!
