When I travel to Central America or South America, I typically use GAdventures to plan all the details as they do a great job sourcing local guides and finding quaint lodging that you would never be able to find on your own.
But I did venture out to another company for this trip. It was a little slower paced and I thoroughly enjoyed a different type of adventure. We sailed into the Caribbean on a small skipper, walked across country borders, hiked into the jungle to find ancient ruins, stayed in log cabins on an island paradise and indulged in local cuisine.
Scaling old ruins and temples was fascinating and totally enthralling. I could never tire of walking the steps of history and imaging life in primitive times. I was always the last to come back down and join the group, but I didn’t care….. I was just having too much fun.
I remember learning “less is more” upon our arrival onto the quaint island of Caye Caulker, where there are no cars and everyone was responsible for carrying their own bags. I could run around the outskirts of the island twice on my daily jaunt and loved being completely disconnected with the real world. We would spend the evenings jumping off the old watering hole and taking in spectacular sunsets. Ahhh to go back…… and not to forget on our way back to our little hole in the wall accommodations, the loose electrical wiring actually caught fire so we enjoyed a scorching summer night without AC, fans or lighting. I really can’t make this kinda stuff up!
Traveling in itself is the adventure. Be ready for anything and just let others happen. 🇧🇿 🇬🇹 🇭🇳
