After exploring Guatemala, I made an uneventful but expensive land crossing to Belize. I headed directly to my hotel, Hopkins Bay Resort Belize, which sat on the Caribbean. My choice of this beach was somewhat driven by logistics. Car/drives are punishingly expensive. (I was quoted $400 for a 2 hour ride to the airport for example.) So this hotel and beach was the most convenient and cost effective between the airport and the border crossing with Guatemala.
The hotel was relaxing, and the room was a comfortably sized two room apartment, with views of the beach. Time was spent relaxing, swimming, eating and bike riding within the small town and checking out some of the local restaurants. Due to high winds, both of my planned snorkel trips were canceled.
So in short, I probably need to go back, and explore again.
