I wasn't impressed by Belize. To begin with, it was raining that morning and the water was a dirty brown color; I know it wasn't Belize's fault, but it wasn't pretty. We had a 20 minute tender into port, which was super small, but at least it was air conditioned. We had booked a shore excursion for Belize -- Cave Tubing. Cave tubing was certainly not my choice and in fact I really disliked it. Right when we got off the tender, it was raining cats and dogs and we were then packed into a Charter bus, soaking wet. We then drove for an hour through Belize City (it was interesting to see how much of a Third World city it is) to the middle of nowhere. Once we got there, we got on the oldest school bus that I've ever seen and went on a roller coaster ride straight up and then straight down a mountain -- crazy AND scary! By then, the weather had cleared up and it was gorgeous out, but of course we could not enjoy the nice weather as we were in the middle of a JUNGLE! We then had to hike for a half hour through the jungle in our bikinis and swim suits, helmets, water shoes and life jackets carrying a HUGE yellow inner tube. Mosquitoes galore! Once we got there, we got into the water (which, I must admit, was beautiful) and tubed through the caves. This tubing was definitely not exciting like white water rafting... our guides had to pull us half of the time. I somehow got lost from out group and ended up in some other group for a while until I could paddle back. I also almost got lost in a little side cave. Once we were back to the beginning and handed in all of our gear, I noticed that I had gotten a huge rash all over my stomach and back from the life jacket, which did not go away for almost a week. Overall, not a very fun experience and actually quite boring.
