A little paradise in the Caribbeans

Leaving Flores early in the morning, I make my way to Belize City. The first thing that strikes me when I cross the border is that none of the signs are written in spanish, I expected that being close to the border, they would have both languages. Also the distances are in miles which must confuse some people after having been used to kms everywhere else. No more hills, straight roads and a lot of African descendants locals.
An hour water taxi ride from Belize City brings me to this very small paradise island in the Caribbeans. The sea is so clear, the sun is hot. It is difficult not to fall for this place. There are no cars, everyone either walks, cycles or use golf buggies to get around. There are only about 1000 permanent residents.
The next day I book myself on a snorkling tour which was incredible. I touched nurse sharks, sting rays and saw turtles, baracudas, eels and lots of different fish. Just take a look at the pictures. Rest of the time spent reading and chilling by the water.
As soon as our guide throws some fish in the water, lots of nurse sharks arrive around the boat, then we get told to get our snorkling gear on and jump in! A little scary at first but an amazing experience!
