Aquatic Adventures

Caye Caulker

Before arriving in Caye Caulker, we had next to no plans on our agenda. While there’s plenty to do on the island (a post of all that we got up to on Caye Caulker is coming up soon), we figured we’d just wing it. But there was one thing I knew for sure we’d have to…

Unbelizeable: A Day at Bread and Butter Caye thumbnail

The morning of our last full day in Hopkins Bay, I woke up anxious. The previous day, our planned excursion had been rescheduled due to spotty weather. This was our last chance. I ran to the window, and flung open the curtains to tentatively clear skies. Snappily-named Cook-Your-Catch snorkeling and fishing adventure, here we come! We…

A Different Kind of Dive: Going Under in the Atlantis Submarine thumbnail

So you can imagine my intrigue when I heard about a new water sport called deep boarding, or coral surfing, available only one place in the world — Bocas del Toro, Panama…

White Water Rafting

Already, I’ve covered quite the array of adventures we tackled in beautiful Baños — biking the waterfall route, canyoning through the jungle, and surviving a fiery New Year’s Eve. But I saved the best for last. For thrills, for laughs, for value and for devastatingly fashionable attire, white water rafting was the best thing we did…

The Magic of Mancora thumbnail

Don’t worry, I’m not going to draw this one out. The magic of Mancora, quite simply, was that we stayed put there for ten entire days. Mancora is so far north in Peru it’s practically making out with Ecuador, and many travelers use it as a short stop to break up the overland journey between the…
