From there we spent 4 nights in Hopkins village where we first got to the sea. We got out to experience the local Garifuna culture, went sea kayaking, hiked in Cockscomb Basin, and had a great 4th of July Barbeque.
Next stop was down the coast to Placencia for our final 3 days in Belize. Placencia takes our prize for best stop. We really loved Placencia, we even took time to talk with a realtor… just to see… about maybe someday… The town had jut the right level of tourist stuff with plenty to do without being overwhelming. The town still felt like it had a good local presence, along with some good cheap street food and reasonable drinks. Adam needed a reasonable priced bar so he could try all the beers of Belize! Going snorkeling in the Silk Cayes was a perfect day trip!
Still unsure if killing a chicken on a chicken bus is a highlight or lowlight…..We will let you be the judge of that.
* A special THANKS! to our Belize Sponsors who helped us a great deal on rooms and activities in their beautiful county!
