Our Belize Trip (part two)

 

This will be my last post about our vacation.  I’m still on our third day.  After leaving Placencia, we decided to drive up the coast a bit to Hopkins.  My book said that all the beaches there are public.  The village is a Garifuna village.  It took us awhile to figure out where to park and we weren’t even sure we were right.  But the bar owner explained that the short streets to the coast are for parking.

 

It was a bit cooler here and the water was so warm.  The beach wasn’t as clean as in Placencia (my husband picked up plastic for them).  We had a couple drinks at the bar, swam a bit, and just hung out.  I really liked it.  After leaving, we drove around a bit and stopped at an art shop to buy something unique to bring home.  More about that below.

Our trip to Belize (part one)

 

I have a feeling that this could be a long post with lots of photos and videos.  I apologize now, but we always try to experience as much as possible while traveling.  I’m breaking this up into two posts, but there will still be a lot.

 

We flew into Belize early April 16th.  After getting our rental car, we looked at our map to see how to get to our hotel.  There are not many highways in Belize, so it’s pretty simple to get places.  We noticed that the Belize Zoo was on the way, so we stopped there for a bit.

Visiting the Coast in Belize Today!

 

We decided to visit the coast for our second full day in Belize (third day there).  After looking at a lot of different places, we found that Placencia is only a 2 hour drive from where we’re staying.  So if we can, this is where we will be today.  I’m hoping to get there early and see if we can find a decent priced boat ride out to one of the cayes by the barrier reef.  But if not, I just want to explore and swim.
