Having said that, this was one of those trips that surrounded two resorts I have been coveting for years.
My husband and I always like to go somewhere new and wonderful for our anniversaries.
Francis Ford Coppola has several resorts that have been taped to my wall for a very long time. So I pulled the travel trigger and booked 4 nights each at Blancaneaux Lodge and Turtle Inn in Belize.
(We scored an upgrade through my awesome travel agent Dori Peterson at Cadence Travel.)
Oh, and it included a flight from Turtle Inn (Placencia) back to Belize City. So, maybe it was a pretty good deal.
Blancaneaux was our first stop.
This hot tub has made serval lists of the most unique, secluded, romantic and just most beautiful hot tubs in the world.
Some serious lounge time was about to go down, again.
16 miles of perfect beaches with rowdy colorful beach bars where you can sip a rum drink with your feet in the sand.
So painfully good!
We used a popular company called Splash Dive Center which was a 15 minute walk from the resort.
This is no booze cruise. They motor you out to the Silk Cayes where you will experience the textbook visual delight off deserted islands. We were in the good hands of a guide whose knowledge of the underwater world was overwhelming and appreciated.
Belize is a country of amazing ancient ruins, fascinating culture and natural wonders. We didn't get our fill on these activities and many would say it's a shame to not see one of the many ruins that Belize is famous for. We were content with our gluttonous relaxation.
You should try it someday.
