Our first trip to Belize was in July of 1998. This was a vacation trip. We did all the tourist things that you do. We flew into Belize City and from there we traveled to Maruba Resort Jungle Spa. Maruba Resort is a spa in the jungles of Belize. If you ever get the opportunity, you should definitely spend a few days there. It was unbelievable. I am not sure if Hosea is still there, but he would come highly recommended. I have had lots of massages…but he rates #1 in my book.
We left the Maruba Resort and headed to Ambergis Caye. The largest of the Caye's in Belize. We took a small plane at Tropic Air. I remember landing on a dirt airstrip and it looked at little scary. But we landed with no problems. We then spent a few days at a resort in Ambergris Caye. We snorkeled with Sharks and Stingrays. This was the beginning of falling in LOVE with Belize.
