The Plan

The Colorado winter of 2007 was brutal. The four of us, Nevin, Ginger, Kathy, and Steve needed a break from snow and shoveling same. Belize was a world away from Peso-frantic Mexico, and the same-ol' chain hotels and tourist resorts with which we are all too familiar. So, we bought ourselves four tickets from American Airlines to the Belize International Airport (BZE) for $552US each.

After much research, we chose the Caribbean Villas hotel and right before another snowstorm hit, we took off. When we arrived, it was 78 degrees F, and, even though it was February, the water was just right; we had been concerned that the ocean water would be too cold for swimming, but it wasn't.

The view from our hotel room was beautiful! What a way to start a day. This is the dawn view from our hotel room (Room 4 of Caribbean Villas):
