Located on the east coast of Belize at the mouth of the Belize River, Belize City is home to the country’s largest seaport. However, a narrow channel prohibits large ships from docking.
I arrived on November 7th just after noon and had arranged for a taxi to pick me up and transport me to The Great House Inn, my accommodation for the night. First order of the day, after checking in, was enjoying a latte in the coffee shop next door. Alison had arrived a day earlier and was waiting for me on the verandah of the Inn afterwards. In the afternoon we took a stroll around downtown, which was blissfully void of tourists as no cruise ships were in that day. Alison had done some footwork and found us the Celebrity Restaurant for dinner that evening; nothing fancy but nice.
The next morning we took the local tender to M/V The World, and, after a lightning fast turnaround I was back on the same tender to shore to join a day excursion to the Mayan Ruins of Xunantunich and Cahal Pech.
