Belize ; Gem of the Caribbean

Unpolished, unpredictable and unrecognized, San Pedro, a gem of the Caribbean, is full of excitement and beauty. I had never traveled alone internationally and this was my first time journeying south of the North American Border. Needless to say, I was nervous and vulnerable. The overwhelming welcoming culture; unpolished, untamed streets and jungles of Belize were refreshing. It all reminded me why traveling is and will always be my number one love.

I stayed at the Las Terrazas resort for the week; a beautiful, primped resort to be sure, with white curtained cabanas, a salt water pool and golf carts for rent! That was actually my favorite part. Having the freedom to cart in to the chaos of the city of San Pedro was a treat. Not to mention, the crystal clear Caribbean waters and the warm air that coated me like a soft blanket; I was in heaven and four days wasn't enough.
