Maya Immersion with Mom

Maya Immersion with Mom

| by Jessica

We offer a lot of tours at the hotel and I try to go on all of them so I know of them first hand. I saved the Maya Immersion tour to do with my mom during her visit in January. Both of us are very crafty, so I was especially excited to take her to the basket weaving demonstration. And, of course, the kids tagged along too.

 I’ve heard so many amazing things about the Garifuna Immersion tour from day one, so this past summer I decided to take the kids.

The kids got 2 weeks off from school for Easter break and despite it being a very busy couple of weeks for the resort, we really wanted to take some time away as a family.


Birthday in Belize with Chocolate and San Ignacio

Birthday in Belize with Chocolate and San Ignacio

Before coming to Belize, I was already anticipating Fay’s birthday, which would occur within a couple months of our arrival. Knowing that Fay had not made many friends here yet, and wouldn’t be celebrating with a party filled with other 10 year olds, I wanted to make her birthday feel special in other ways.

Ziplining at Bocawina

Bocawina is a national park very close to Beaches and Dreams. You can do zip lining as well as rapelling down a waterfall. But, for this outing, we opted for just the ziplining. Fay quickly overcame her fear and we all had a really good time. Rex definitely enjoyed going fast!


Mayan Ruins -- Xunantunich

One of the fun parts of learning how to run our new business is learning about the tours. The best way to learn about each tour is to go on it! That way we can tell our guests what to expect and help them choose the best tour to suit their interests. Ryan and I decided to take the kids to the Mayan Ruins at Xunantunich, coupled with a cave tubing tour. 


Checking out Sittee River

Checking out Sittee River

On Saturday, we took a much needed break from the business of buying the resort and did some exploring with the kids. We had taken them in to town on our second day here, but they hadn’t seen much beyond the resort area and Hopkins Village. One place I really wanted to check out was Sittee River.
