I can’t believe it’s only been a year since we were in Belize last January–time flies.
We are headed to the Punta Uva area on the Caribbean coast. I’m so excited to explore somewhere new, speak Spanish allthetimenoexcuses and enjoy some relaxing on the beach.
We chose the Caribbean coast for it’s relative remoteness and lack of lots of resorts. I’m sure it will be relatively busy this time of year, but I’ve read there are always lots of empty beaches to explore and enjoy.
I am beyond excited for my chances at sloth sightings. I’m totally obsessed with perisosos, and can’t wait to just stare at them awkwardly taking a billion pictures. Hi little slothies (said in creepy Home Alone guy voice)…DH is much more into tree frogs, and lucky for him, there should be plenty of those as well.
With some luck, the snorkeling may be decent off Cahuita. If it’s not, we may opt for some surfing, as neither of us have ever surfed before! Since I do snowboard, I’m eager to try it to out-do/out-splash/out-ride my husband in a bout of competitiveness. There also might be some hiking through the National Park or other outdoorsy activities–not sure what all is in store, and unlike many of our trips, I haven’t planned this one out in crazy detail.
I didn’t even buy a guide book! (I love collecting guide books).
We have four days to enjoy the area, so if you have any recommendations, please chime in!
