"a charming overnight stay..." Crooked Tree by pollon

Crooked Tree Travel Guide: 24 reviews and 47 photos

it took me more than one year to build this page and it has been a letter to Dorla which definitely convinced me to find some free time for the building... but let's go in order, you are not in my mind and cannot understand from these messed up words of mine ;-)...

anyway it was meant to be just an overnighting on the way to the Mayan ruins of Lamanai and turned out to be definitely a charming stop over... and if you go in high season (april instead is low season) is a paradise for bird watching...

Pros and Cons
  • In a nutshell:birds, a scorpion, an Inn opened for me...

    Chiara, what a great page you have done for us on Crooked Tree! The Paradise Inn sounds like my kind of spot, especially since I love bird-watching! You have a great attitude when it comes to Tree Frogs and Scorpions!!

    I really LOL about the co-guests in the hotel tips, but I would not have been laughing if I were there. This is a delightful page, especially the homecooked meals tip. Just wonderful.

    Dorla is sooo sweet! How nice to meet people like her on trips! Your Island Christmas seems memorable. :-)

    You missed the opportunity to kiss a frog at Paradise Inn in Crooked Tree? You missed the chance of a lifetime. But you did get some superb pictures, bravo!

    E' vero che il belize è il paese col più alto numero di campi da golf in proporzione alla sua estensione? °_°
