We snorkled with these creatures!  Jumping in was the hardest part; the peer pressure helped.

The freshest ceviche I could ever taste, the chef guides made ON the boat from the fish just we just caught!

This place also had the best homemade coconut ice cream I have ever had!  I still crave it every now and then.  Another cool tidbit about Rojo Lounge:  the Bachelor held the last rose ceremony here a few years after my visit.

Rojo by night:  TEQUILA! with our sweet local house keeper/cook77076_825164920892_6434925_n76295_825170030652_1110560_n

During my run, I discovered these places along the beach148584_825167440842_3929162_n74483_825162440862_1327481_n148584_825167445832_7187534_n75820_825139002832_3166466_n

We only check out the village on our way to the tiny expensive grocery market to get some sides to accompany our fish and lobsters back at the house.20130108-232828.jpg 20130108-232932.jpg 20130108-233005.jpg Instead of taking the boat back to the main island for our flight home we decided to eat that ticket and took this teeny plane for a much quicker and smoother ride.20130108-233029.jpg Aerial views from the small plane over to Belize City20130108-233054.jpg

I’ve never had a more relaxing vacation.  Such a lovely place!  I  hope to come back to this gorgeous island someday.  Maybe I will even get the courage to scuba dive next time…20130108-233115.jpg
