Travel Blog: Belize
After years of plotting and daydreaming of travels abroad, this winter finally marked my first international adventure. From December 22 to January 1, I traversed the jungles, caves, towns, and Mayan ruins of mainland Belize, explored the sprawling remnants of the ancient city of Tikal in Guatemala, and snorkeled, fished, and relaxed off the coast of San Pedro.
The trip was as magical as I could have hoped, filled with new experiences, the vibrant Belizean culture, and sights I would have never expected (hello howler monkeys!).
