Chabil Mar: Belize is the best place to swim with whale sharks

Swimming with whale sharks, the largest fish in the sea is a one of a kind experience and there are only a handful of destinations on the planet where you can see these wonderful creatures. Every year in the months of March, April, May and June, around the full moon, you can see these gentle giants drawn to Gladden Spit and Silk Cayes Marine Reserve near Placencia in Southern Belize.

Blessed by the Taco Gods: Neri’s Tacos

Waking up before sunrise is an arduous task. But with a motivator such as Neri’s Deli calling my name, there is no way my sheet could tie me down. I’m from Orange Walk- home of the best tacos in Belize- so believe me, I know good tacos. But, sadly, since I’m no longer there, Neri’s in San Pedro is my second best.

Their answer: two wildly different regions of Belize.

Indigenous Innovation: Revolutionizing Cacao in Belize

Maya Mountain Cacao connects 330 small-producer cacao farmers in southern Belize to the fine chocolate industry in the United States. The farmers we work with are primarily indigenous Maya who are at or below the poverty line. Agriculture is their main source of income, and cacao is the main cash crop in this area. In Belize, the delicious chocolate industry is enabling farmers to support their families’ health, children’s education, and lives.

Tiburon Rum of Belize Making Waves Internationally Arrives in Belize

In just its first year of being out in the US Market, Tiburon Rum is making waves across that nation with now having won nine major awards. Tiburon Rum was being only marketed as ‘The Spirit of Belize’ in the United States of America, but now it has finally arrived in Belize for the country to experience the flavor and buzz of the world class rum that comes from the country’s very own Travellers Liquors.

Video: Oceana in Belize Exposes Belizean First Family to Belizean World Heritage Sites

The Great Blue Hole, a Belizean National Monument and World Heritage Site, is one of the most gorgeous marine settings in the world. Situated just over 50 miles east of Belize City in the Lighthouse Reef Atoll, the rare reef formation stretches over 1,000 feet wide and over 400 feet deep. Previously an above-ground cave that’s sunk underwater, this sinkhole is teeming with marine life and is a haven for divers and ocean enthusiasts. Belize is home to three of the Caribbean’s four natural coral reef atolls.

Jamaican Artist Beenie Man to Perform at Cahal Pech Village Resort

Things to do in Caye Caulker

‘No Shirt, No Shoes…No Problem.’ You’ll see this sign everywhere in Belize, but no place is it more apt than Caye Caulker. Indeed, nothing seems to be a problem on this tiny island, where mangy dogs nap in the middle of the dirt road and suntanned cyclists pedal around them. The only traffic sign on the island instructs golf carts and bicycles to ‘go slow,’ a directive that is taken seriously.

Bartling Benefactor For Belize

Long-time University of Sioux Falls theatre professor and former O’Gorman teacher Kim Bartling is a familiar face to many in Sioux Falls.

While she’s no longer teaching here, she is still caring for students a world away. A vacation turned into an effort to transform lives in Belize.

Pirates in Belize

The idea of pirates roaming the Caribbean Seas in search of buried treasure sounds like something straight out of a Disney movie. Although fascinating, the thought can be a bit scary when you think about ships being hijacked, walking the plank or even shooting cannons. Despite the fact that we all know pirates sailed through the Caribbean, it is not often that we hear that Belizean shores were “the rendezvous of organized bands of pirates who ruled the Caribbean seas during the 17th century.”

Best of Xanadu: Destination Wedding Belize!

Here you have an idea of different Weddings  at this superb cozy resort on Ambergris Caye, Xanadu Island Resort.
Why I love Xanadu Resort so much?

The reason I love This eco island  resort is because combine the Sea and the jungle.
