San Pedro

posted on: 9.16.2014

I figure it best to begin my numerous Belize posts with the city that served as our home base, San Pedro, Ambergris Caye. This is a city of about 20,000 people (tourists included) on an island off the northern coast of Belize. Island life was incredibly mellow, so much that on our first night we walked for 15 minutes before seeing a single soul. San Pedro is still growing, there are few paved roads and can only fit one car thus most people drive golf carts or bike, we tried both. The best part about San Pedro is the endless array of docks and sea water activities. Here you are only a half mile from the second largest barrier reef in the world! (I'll let you guess which is first.) Erik and I loved being able to head out to any dock, spot a few rays and tropical fish, then jump into the big blue. We even swam with sharks and sea turtles! The downside of being in Belize during the quote "off season" was the temperamental weather. We had a constant influx of rain accompanied by intense sunshine, hence my request to be photographed in both chambray and bare shoulders, you obviously needed the full effect. San Pedro- you are a gem.

  9. This looks like such an amazing trip! I can't get over how blue that water is. Your outfit is perfect for walking around and enjoying the town. Also, when I don't see another person for an extended period of time, I am convinced the apocalypse has occurred and I am unaware...haha I'm crazy.
