We hemmed and hawed about whether the hassles to get there were worth the trip. In the end Daniel won out since he has never been to the Caribbean before. We chose to make for Ambergris Caye and Tio Pil’s on the beach. Getting there is a bit like trains, planes, and automobiles. Finally after a 90 min ferry crossing we arrived if a bit late.

This is a very laid back place. People walk around without shoes and drive golf carts in town. A fabulous spot for enjoying rum punch and a lot of hammock time.

The big event of the island week is the “Chicken drop” on Thursday nights. You buy a numbered square on the board of 100 squares for 1 Bz= .50$US and you wait for the chicken to “drop”. Yup you stand around on the beach with a rum punch in hand and watch a chicken while praying that it poops on your square. Like I said "its laid back".

We joined the locals and rented a golf cart for the afternoon to explore as far north and south as we could go. The road is paved for about 1 km in each direction then its off roading in a golf cart. Having rained heavily the day before there was some adventure. Golf cart + mud = good times.

The big highlight for us was a day sailing to the even more laid back island of Caye Caulker with stops to snorkel the reef and at shark ray alley.
