Belize is a country with much charm, from it’s primitive roads to their churches and their rugged trails to many of their ancient wonders.
A bridge on the Southern Highway traveling from Pelican beach and the Jaguar Reserve to Punta Gorda and Lubaantun, the pyramid where the crystal skull was reported to have been found in the 1920s.
The Catholic Church at San Jacinto in Central Belize, survives mainly from donations from church donations from the United States.
One of the many challenging trails in Belize, this one leads to a cave deep in the Central American jungle.

It doesn’t take long to discover that Belize is a land of contrasts. From the poverty and disarray of the cities to the quiet countryside, many differences are soon found. With poverty and crime running rampant in cities such as Belize City and Belmopan, the traveler has to be constantly aware of his surroundings and protect whatever is being carried. Remember,that camera hanging around your neck is worth more than the average Belizean earns in a year. All that aside, the Mayan people are wonderfully warm people many of whom go out of their way to please visitors. Traveling into the countryside one discovers thatch roof homes with no doors or windows. Because of the warm climate , they can live comfortably all year with a gentle breeze flowing through the open windows and doors. I was struck with the concept that although no utility lines were visible, a lot of homes had a satellite dish in the front yard.
