We wandered this morning,
and found there are three streets crossing the island; Front Street, Middle Street and Back Street.
I had coconut, lime juice and fry jack for breakfast.
Viv has gone snorkelling, but after a cheap lobster burrito, I am following the traffic sign directive.
We caught the bus from this charming bus station, across the road from the Southern Workers Union hq.
Then we took a water taxi to the island of Caye Caulker. On arrival, we stopped for lunch,
then walked up the beach to our cabana.
Now we must rest.
We visited this morning from Hopkins, and walked through the jungle to a waterfall, under which we swam. We didn’t see any big cats, but an armadillo walked past.
We crossed the border into Belize, and the vibe changed to Caribbean straight away.
Near the town of San Ignacio we went to ATM Cave. This involved a bumpy ride into the jungle, with a creek crossing. We then walked for about an hour, crossing a river three times. We entered the cave via a turquoise pool.
For a kilometre we swam, climbed foaming waterfalls, and squeezed through crevices. As well as the usual stalactites and bats, there were ancient Mayan pots and skeletons of human sacrifices.
It would’ve been impossible to carry a camera, so this is our guide’s photo.
