And for another, our travel arrangements here were also quite different. In Guatemala we had stayed mainly in towns, with local life right on our doorstep, and had explored independently, with a strong emphasis on history. In Belize we were to stay in lodges, and see much more wildlife than human life!

But if you’re going to chill for a few days, this is a great place to do it! And if you’re on a budget the nearby river camp would be a great alternative.
