Belize (February 2009)

Email comments from Stefan and Silke:

“Belize wasn’t as pretty as expected and we were not lucky with the weather. First we drove to the mayan temple “Caracol” and visited the caves next to it. Then we stopped at the garage of Graham who is a Land Rover Defender specialist. So we did maintenance and service on our Fender. Because we needed to relax a bit at the beach we traveled to Placencia. We found a campground right on the sea in the sand and in-between palm trees. But it was raining from time to time and it is not the cheapest place. Therefore we said to ourselves: ”Let’s just go to the Belize Zoo and then leave the country after a stop-over in Belize City”.

“The last night we camped at a restaurant in Altun Ha. They have a butterfly farm with a Tucan called “Tuci”. It can be frightening if you look too close to his big beak.”

“So, after only eight days in Belize we headed towards Mexico to the Yucatan Peninsula.”
