Belize — Still for the Intrepid
Returning to what has been one of my favorite places on earth since I was a young girl for my first extended stay in years, I found Belize’s Cayo hardly changed. Me? I have to admit that, back in Belize at last, I was a little harder to recognize.
I came to Cayo for the first time almost 30 years ago. I had seen little else of the rest of the world by that time, but I recognized something in this part of Belize that I appreciated immediately–a big-time potential for adventure and discovery.
“This is what’s great about Cayo,” I told my 14-year-old son Jackson as he, his father, and I drove around lost in the dark on the unpaved, unmarked, unlit jungle roads our first night in the country trying to find our lodge.
