Blissed Out in Belize

Once upon a time, Belize was a holiday destination for pirates. They lounged on the beaches, swam in the bays and lurked among the reefs and mangroves in their bandanas and eyepatches, waiting for passing galleons. The maps tell their holiday tales. The cayes and islands in these waters sound as if they have been lifted from Treasure Island: Gallows Point, Man O’ War Caye, Deadman’s Cayes, Spanish Lookout, Last Chance Caye.

It’s Un-Belize-able!

While Belize is certainly geographically very Central American, its long history as a British colony gives it a feel that we found more similar to some Caribbean islands than its Latin neighbors. The Creole tinged English was a familiar sound to our ears after the years we spent on St. Croix, but it would fit right in on any of the Virgin Islands, Barbados, Antigua, or Jamaica. The history of Belize, known as British Honduras from 1862 until 1964, has a lot in common with those islands.
