Well I already told you why you should plan that second vacation (a.k.a justified planning my second trip of the season).  Now it’s time to tell you where that second vacation is going to be…

BELIZE!

After doing some research and scouring the travel blog-osphere we decided on this beautiful Central American destination.  If it’s anything like Costa Rica then how can we really go wrong?

How We Decided on Belize

We first came across a Groupon for a Belize Getaway to Ambergris Caye.  Ambergris Caye is an island off of Belize that sits in the Carribbean.  I had never heard of it before, but quickly learned it was recently voted #1 in the Top 10 Islands of the World by Trip Advisor!

After finding a few great websites and blogs describing how amazing Belize is, especially San Pedro (the town on Ambergris Caye), I was easily convinced this is where we had to go.  Some of the websites I found that had great information on Belize:

Getting Stamped: A blog of a couple from Wisconsin on a Round the World trip.  One of their first stops was Belize!  Because of their blog, I added a stop in Placencia, Belize to our trip!

A Passion and a Passport: Jess convinced me with her 23 Reasons Why I Love San Pedro, Belize post!

San Pedro Scoop: Rebecca is an expat from NYC who moved to Ambergris Caye seven years ago.  Her blog has so much awesome information.  It will definitely be my go – to guide when I’m there!

General Itinerary

Thursday to Sunday: After landing in Belize City we will head South to Placencia.  Placencia is said to have the best beaches in Belize.  We are staying at a place that has individual huts – so cool!  I am still looking for what day trip we will do from here or maybe we will just do nothing and relax on the beach!

Sunday to Thursday: We will head to Ambergris Caye!  We are staying at a place that has a yoga studio (yay) and a pretty fun looking bar!  One day on the island we will take a day trip to go over to Caye Caulker and snorkel the second largest reef in the world!  I hear we should end the day at the Lazy Lizard. It looks like a pretty awesome bar in a pretty amazing place.
