Windy days means drinks for all!

November 29, 2019

I feel like we should add some context to these posts. So on days that that are a bit too windy to partake in water sports, we simply grab some punch mix that is hand squeezed by Maria down the road at her kiosk and blend it with local rum.

We sit, talk, play dominoes or swim in the pool. Life is pretty relaxed here and we try to match that level of *chill* as best we can.

Arguably the cutest couple on the island!

November 29, 2019

Yep, if you live here or have visited here since 2019, you’ve seen us. The couple that smiles, waves and says “Hi” to literally everyone on the road. That’s us, the tall blonde and the short guy! While we know of cuter couples here, few are as recognizable as us!

Iguana Juan’s

November 29, 2019

You gotta visit Iguana Juan’s!!!!!


As an expat, you CANNOT live here without eating at Iguana Juan’s at least once a week! Brad and Shannon are the best and their staff is easily TOPS on the island! We highly suggest eating here, even if you’re just here on vacation!

Huge starfish gobbling up our coral reef.

Found this guy s few times eating our reef, kept re-locating him.


We kept having to re-locate this guy, he was eating our artificial reef at the end of our dock. Probably took a few days of moving him until he figured out a better place to eat!

Delicious root veggies, but…

November 29, 2019

The island offers the best, richest, most flavorful root vegetables. But you’d better like root veggies, because that’s about all the island offers locals. The average carrot looks like a sunrise!


So root vegetables are about the only thing grown here locally on the island and they look amazing! This one totally looks like a Caribbean surise!

Not so secretive Secret Beach

November 29, 2019

Everyone wants to go here. The waters are calm and clear plus no crocs wandering about (usually). But if you go to “Secret Beach” go to Aurora’s. Just take a hard left at the Secret Beach sign, you won’t be disappointed.


Left here


Yep, right at this sign.

Speaking of roads….

November 29, 2019

There are traffic jams here and there is a “highway”.


Your average road.


8am traffic jam


The Highway.

Not all is glamorous on the island though.

The garbage problem North of the island is real. Everything you throw away goes somewhere, often times that “somewhere” is Ambergris Caye.


This is actually a “road” North, littered with debris brought in by the tides.


Speaking of taking advantage of the days….

November 29, 2019

Be sure to get yourself a kayak. The weight lose is a perk too!!!

No nightlife, so daylife it is!

November 29, 2019

There isn’t much nightlife, most everything closes at 10pm.

So take advantage of life during the day! Although the nights look amazing!!
