Belize was so beautiful. We rode the bus that took us to a little place to ride ATV 4 wheelers through the jungle. That was great and so much fun! and our tour guide held our camera and took lots of pics of us. just make sure you strip down to your bathing suit only, you will be a muddy mess. but they are showers to shower off afterward. after the ATV ride, we got on the bus again and they took us to another little place to do some cave tubing. It is a long 45 min hike through the jungle. So make sure you are in tip top shape, it is very tiring and very hot. I seen a lot of elderly people who were struggling. And make sure you wear your water shoes. The caves were very beautiful and the water was quite refreshing. very relaxing. after the cave tubing was over, you got on the bus again and they took you to a nice place for lunch. chicken tamale. It was Ash Wednesday and I cheated and ate meat. couldn't resist, it was very good. after lunch, we rode the bus back to the ship, and still had some time to do a little shopping.
My fav port we visited. It was so beautiful and breathtaking. We did the dolphin encounter with Anthony's. Beware that this is only an encounter and not an actual swim. I swam with the dolphins in Jamaica and this one being only an encounter was not nearly as good. They take you in waist deep water and don't let you bring your cameras to the very last 10 min. They gave us lessons and taught us about the dolphins. We were allowed to pet them, give belly rubs, etc.. When it came down to the kiss, the trainer only took pics with his own camera and not yours. So that you could buy the very overpriced pics in the gift shop after. It was very disorganized in the gift shop and very slow. My husband got so frustrated that we left before even viewing our pics. And the rest of the gift shop was very overpriced as well. $42 for a T Shirt? come on, crazy! After that was over, we boarded the bus again and they took us to the most beautiful beach I ever seen. Tabyana beach. Lunch was included burgers, hot dogs, barbecue chicken, rice, beans and fresh fruit. and unlimited tea and lemonade. We also tried the bar which isn't included and got a couple of their signature drinks, tabyana mamas. so good. We relaxed on the beach the rest of the day and had a blast.
