Placencia – lazy beach day

Filed under: travel — Tags: , — mat @ 2:48 am

A little bit of overcast today. anyway we spent a couple of hours at the beach. It’s a huge bay and because of off season it’s almost empty :)

Mandy gets a little tipsy from the original rum punch at Barefoot Bar ;) was a real strong cocktail. And we bought local food (as most of the time) and had our dinner on the balkons. Rice and beans and chicken. 

Weather forecast is not that sunny for tomorrow so we’ll do a hiking trail at the Cockscomb Jaguar sanctuary. May be we’ll see one of them or may be, better not.

Placencia – south of Belize

Filed under: travel — Tags: — mat @ 10:14 pm

*sigh* wrong decision made. We tried to share a taxi with a lady. she wants to go to Hopkins and we said ok, saves us time when we will go off at the junction to Placencia. 100 $BZ. ok let’s go. The driver was in a hurry and we reached the junction after 90 mins. usually it’s a 2.5 hrs drive. He offered various possibilities and we decided to go out at the entrance to Cockscomb basin sanctuary. He said then 150 and seems to be pissed and so was I as well. We spent 1.5 hrs waiting for the bus and we had won… nothing ! just paid too much. shit. lessons learned. But we arrived finally around noon at Placencia, Manatee Inn. operated by a czech couple and we are the only guests coz it’s still off season. nice room and just few meters till the beach. this is my view from the hammock right now 

we’ll go later to ask for a snorkeling trip. much more expensive than at Caulker but we may have the chance to swim with sea turtles…
