We also met this little gem of a babe, Vicky from Boston. She is a badass solo traveler and we had some good drinks and shared even better travel stories. Good luck once you are back in the states, my love!
Then it was time to leave the island behind and take our first chicken bus 2 hours to San Ignacio. This was the spot for hiking in caves, seeing ruins and playing in the jungle. We were so ready for some adventure, until we got here and everyone told us our ideas for adventure were flooded and all the tour spots were closed. Perfect. So we made the best of our time here and saw Cahal Pech which is the local Mayan ruin in the city.
We also got caught in a serious rain storm which at first made me want to cry, but then I got into it and by the end of it I was strictly riding with my tongue out so I could drink gallons of rain water. Also, Mike makes anything fun and was asking me to rate his tour guide skills throughout the entire "bike tour". His score went up significantly when we stopped at a random little spot in the middle of nowhere for some orange draaank and .25 tostadas.
And now, we're OUT! Heading over the border today to Flores, Guatemala. We are just over a week in and I feel like I got a good amount of Belize. I don't think I am the best person to ask about it because the first thing I would say is "it rains soooo much", which it really doesn't. We just were unlucky. But, to put it in perspective, we were talking to local restaurant owners who were struggling for each dollar because tourists shockingly will not venture down certain roads if they are full of mud. So, if you are a business that happens to be on a side street that has not been paved, you will only get the adventurous backpackers who are down to climb walls and jump over fences to get to you. That was us :) We are excited to venture into our second country! See you in Guatemala...
