Top 5 Ways to Paradise With Your +1

Capture

Travel+Leisure Magazine is encouraging couples to think beyond Hawaii or Bermuda for their tropical honeymoon, and of course, we couldn't agree more. Top travel experts agree, no place surpasses Belize in 2022. National Geographic and Lonely Planet just put Belize on their top "must-visit" lists for 2022. Just last month, the esteemed travel publication Lonely Planet named Belize a Top Country to Visit in 2022. This time, world-renowned National Geographic adds to the fanfare, listing Belize as one of the 25 Amazing Journeys for 2022.

So, what's with all the hype? Belize is one of the few countries, where you can do it all. From the Caribbean Sea to the sultry in-land jungles, there is a wide array of adventure and of course, relaxation. In this article, we feature the top five ways that couples can enhance their time together through these incredible experiences.


Cave Tubing & Jungle Zip Lining

An adventurous combination of hiking and cave tubing within a cave system, this is a fun activity! Float on inner tubes with only your headlamp to guide the way as the Caves Branch River winds a path through the Maya Mountain and numerous caves.

Secured by a harness with feet dangling free, zip line riders will traverse from 75 ft high platforms whizzing past a stunning display of tropical flora and fauna. Daring participants will rappel to the rainforest floor from the final platform for a thrilling one-of-a-kind jungle adventure. 


Try Scuba

If you have never seen the reef up close, it is one of the most epic experiences yet. We allow you to try your hand with SCUBA gear in our saline pool, and if you feel comfortable, we then take you to the shallow reef close to the resort. Watching your +1 in awe with the vibrant colors and immersed in another world, is a memory that will last forever. 


Just Sit Still...

When is the last time you and yours were able to just sit still and focus, undistracted on each other...? There are incredible views and peaceful spaces throughout the island to just be present and be in the moment. Let our friendly staff cater to your every need while you take the time you have always dreamed of to immerse yourselves in paradise. 


Sleep In!

There have been thousands of studies on the benefits of sleep. St. George's Caye Resort is where good sleep begins. Sea breezes and the hum of the waves are like your own personal white noise to soothe you to sleep. For most adults, at least seven hours of sleep7. We suggest you catch up here! And, what's better than waking feeling refreshed! 


So Much More...

This destination offers so many ways to spend your time, from the Blue Hole to dinner with new friends, to snorkeling, to yoga by the water, and bean bag on the beach. There are endless combinations of incredible experiences that will make memories for the rest of your days together! As many of our guests do, you will look back on this time at on the island and want to return to make more memories and friends in the future. 


We hope you can come away for pampering in paradise and a perspective that is as refreshing as our clear blue waters!

Top 6 Belize Activities for Adventure Seekers

Paul-and-Bree-Morton---St.-Georges-Caye-Resort-Belize---Best-Trip-Ever-_20211123-215558_1

When you think of Central America, you may think of lazy white beaches, crystal blue waters, and drinks with tiny umbrellas. You got that all right, but what lay in store for the adventurer is far greater. Here are the top six ways to "Adventure" with St. George's Caye Resort in Belize

Cave Tubing & Jungle Zip Lining

An adventurous combination of hiking and cave tubing within a cave system, this is a fun activity! Float on inner tubes with only your headlamp to guide the way as the Caves Branch River winds a path through the Maya Mountain and numerous caves.

Secured by a harness with feet dangling free, zip line riders will traverse from 75 ft high platforms whizzing past a stunning display of tropical flora and fauna. Daring participants will rappel to the rainforest floor from the final platform for a thrilling one-of-a-kind jungle adventure.

St. Herman's Cave & Blue Hole National Park

This is your best opportunity to get up close and personal with the Belize jungle environment and hike nature trails with breathtaking views. The Park is a source of wonder with numerous underground streams, sinkholes, and extensive cave systems, and is ideal for birding with over 200 species of birds. Three of the five species of wild cats found in Belize - jaguar, ocelot, and jaguarondi - have been sighted in the park.

A guided exploration into the cave system takes you through huge caverns that are adorned with crystalline formations. Take a walk down the footpath and staircase of the Maya shaman and priest as they journeyed into the underworld where they used the chambers deep within the cave for their ceremonies. See Maya artifacts such as pottery, beads, obsidian knives, and human skeletons calcified in the limestone floor that date back 2000 years. Then, complete your adventure with a refreshing swim in the sapphire water of the Blue Hole National Park.

Lamanai Maya Ruins

The name "Lamanai" comes from the word "submerged crocodile" in the Mayan language. This site, situated along the New River Lagoon, features monumental architecture of temples and palaces dating from the Classic and Pre-Classic Periods. Pollen evidence dates the earliest occupation at the site to be about 1500 B.C. The earliest pottery has been dated to about 500 B.C.

But getting there and back is half the fun. See more of the land of Belize on your way to the river, and then enjoy an enchanting jungle boat ride complete with native wildlife!

Belize Cultural Adventure

Prepare to discover Belize. This unique unscripted tour is customized for you and your fellow travelers by our seasoned professional guide "on the fly." He will get to know you and what you are interested in and plan your day accordingly. The many attractions that may be included

Old Belize Museum features Belize's rainforest, Mayan history, cave systems, timber and chicle industries

  • Tour of Old Belize – see the history of the former British Colony
  • Belize Zoo
  • Luba Garifuna museum features one of the most cultural groups in Belize
  • Traveller's Rum Factory
  • Belize city museum that features Belize's history from the early inhabitants to its present day

Island Excursion - San Pedro Slam

Travel by boat across the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea, going past nearby Caye Chapel and Caye Caulker, to San Pedro on Ambergris Caye. Spend the morning on a guided snorkeling and/or diving adventure at two popular sites, Hol Chan Marine Reserve and Shark Ray Alley. (For guests who do not want to snorkel or dive, you have the full day to explore Ambergris Caye.) Then we venture back to San Pedro for lunch at the restaurant of your choice (we can provide recommendations) and an afternoon of shopping and visiting galleries, gift shops, and beach bars/restaurants, before returning to St. George's with plenty of time to unwind and freshen up before dinner.

Water Sports – On-island Watersports are Always Complimentary at St. George's Caye Kayak

Take off right from our swimming beach and easily paddle the leeward side of the caye over to the mangroves and the ultra-calm "rivers" that separate sections of the island. Search out the great herons, frigate birds and white egrets – maybe even spot some nests. Or get adventurous and paddle out toward the reef, stopping for a dip in the warm water. (Single and tandem kayaks available.)

Stand-Up Paddle Boards

Try this fun and popular new sport in the calm waters on the lagoon side of the island, a great way to check out the wildlife both above and below the water. We recently added stand-up paddleboards to our water sports equipment after guest requests - and it's been a fun addition. Paddleboards are a great workout too!

Swimming in Paradise

Guests at St. George's Caye Resort enjoy three excellent swimming options. Our sparkling pool is maintained with the perfect water balance to be ready when you are – 24/7. The water is slightly saline which means it stays clean and requires much less chlorine than traditional pools. Swim laps, start a water polo match, or just cool off in the tropical sun.

Our lagoon-facing swimming beach allows you to walk right into the sea from your lounge chair. You can swim out into the protected bay of our crescent-shaped island, or paddle around the docks looking for sea life. Dolphins frequent this side of the island and you may even meet a Manatee. Take our complimentary snorkel gear and you will be sure to view juvenile reef fish. Our sands are comprised of finely broken coral making for a solid surface of beautiful white.

On our dock on the windward side of the caye you will find chairs, chaise lounges, and hammocks under a thatch-roof palapa and out in the sun. When you get hot, you can walk a few steps to the end of the dock, jump in for a swim in the ocean, then come up the ladder back onto the dock (preferable with a cold beverage waiting for you).

Sail the Caribbean

We maintain three Hobie Cat sailboats for your pleasure. Experienced sailors enjoy visiting the small nearby cayes, even taking lunch (and a few beers) for the journey. The larger boat will accommodate four people, so you can go with friends, or make new friends. It's easy to learn to sail these boats, so just ask if you would like to try it – our captains will be happy to "teach you the ropes" (no charge) and you will be sailing in no time!

Snorkeling

Snorkeling right off the beach is fun and free, including complimentary use of our gear. There are always fish to find around the docks and you can stay close to shore. But for the ultimate snorkeling experience, you can schedule a half-day trip with our professional guides over the coral reef system just minutes from St. George's. You will find sea life on your own, and our guides will point out varieties of reef fish, rays, eels, conch, and possibly manatees. This is great fun with a group, or just for two! Snorkelers can also sign up to join a full-day guided trip to the Blue Hole and Lighthouse Reef. This is a diver's mecca but is also a tropical dream trip for snorkelers.

Windsurfer's Heaven

Located at the far western end of the Caribbean Sea, we are blessed most every day with excellent breezes (trade winds) blowing across the reef, providing an ideal crosswind for exciting windsurfing. We have been told by guests who travel the world in search of "the best wind" that the shallow waters between St. George's Caye and our coral reef provide the ideal conditions for windsurfing – come experience it for yourself! Just like the sailing, if you want to try windsurfing, our captains will be happy to set you up and get you on your way. After a few trials and maybe a few refreshing dips in the ocean, you will be riding the waves!

No matter what you find to keep you moving, Belize is the perfect spot to create memories to last a lifetime and experience the best of the world! 

We hope you can come away for pampering in paradise and a perspective that is as refreshing as our clear blue waters!

Fresh Perspective From Paradise - Refreshed

shutterstock-611361698

A couple of years ago we wrote of reframing your mind by moving away from the "daily grind", or even just the routine of daily life, to gain a more global perspective. We had no idea how necessary this would be these days... We feel this is an appropriate time to republish this and hope you have the chance to come away so that we can offer the opportunity to completely disconnect and refresh. That very experience is our specialty!

Three-time gold medal cyclist, Kristin Armstrong was quoted in saying, "It's not only moving that creates new starting points. Sometimes all it takes is a subtle shift in perspective, an opening of the mind, an intentional pause and reset, or a new route to start to see new options and new possibilities."

Perspective is a vantage point that is purely your own… Or is it?

We often receive pictures and videos from our guests. They have enjoyed this seclusion and natural beauty of our island and what they capture is awe-inspiring. On this occasion, we wanted to share another's a fresh perspective of paradise. Maybe it will help you to gain a new outlook too. Thank you, Leah Flores for capturing these moments. 

Spend hours in total relaxation next to the Caribbean teal blue, allowing time to think in peace or to totally clear your mind, body and soul. Return to home feeling relieved, reflective and restored.
Bask in the morning sunlight while sipping freshly squeezed juices and, carefully brewed coffee, delivered right to your room. #heavenlymorning

 St. George's Caye is a place, far from the hustle and bustle of the day, where you can disconnect and share in experiences that enrich many facets of life. From adventure to relaxation or romance, the island is truly made for any vacation desires.

  The views are breathtaking and the options for activities are endless. Learn to SCUBA dive or snorkel, grab a hobie cat or kayak and explore the clear blue waters, or simply relax next to the saline pool and soak up some rays.

At the end of your day, spent however you wish, fall back into the comforts of home away from home. With a full belly and a day full of relaxation or adventure, you will find the ultimate relaxation in our sunrise oceanfront, sunset over the water, or tropical garden cabanas, or in our immaculate oceanfront villa suites.

Kristin Armstrong said it best, "When everything is moving and shifting, the only way to counteract chaos is stillness. When things feel extraordinary, strive for ordinary. When the surface is wavy, dive deeper for quieter waters."

We hope you can come away for pampering in paradise and a perspective that is as refreshing as our clear blue waters!

Lionfish Hunting in Belize

DIVING-Lionfish-belize

This is an incredible season in Belize and as we make our way to 2022, guests both returning and new are making their reservations for diving and fishing this coming spring. Belize is host to thousands of species of sea creatures, as well as some of the best and most abundant sea, reef, and river fishing! 

Imagine dipping into the Caribbean Sea and exploring the Barrier Reef just off the coast of Belize. You'll come across many beautiful and colorful fish, coral, sea turtles, and you may even swim alongside a manatee or dolphin. One species of fish you are sure to encounter is the Lionfish. Lionfish are beautiful (and tasty!) but are also an invasive species to the Caribbean with no known predators, and a danger to the health of the coral reef ecosystem. 


Since it's impossible to eliminate the lion fish, our goal is to manage the population by spearfishing, netting, and line fishing them and enjoying the delicious white meat at mealtime.

To do our part to help control the population around Belize, our dive professionals often take spear guns out with them. Experienced divers can take advantage of this unique and fun opportunity to hunt lionfish and help the reef alongside our dive professionals! This specialty dive is offered as a local two tank dive or a one tank dive at the reef. No matter which you choose, the thrill and excitement of the hunt will be a memory you'll carry with you long after you've left the island. 


With a little luck, you might bring back enough lion fish for the chef to prepare appetizers for everyone! Yes, although they have venomous fins, lion fish are a delicate and delicious white meat. There are many tasty ways to prepare lionfish, such as ceviche, lionfish fingers, whole fried lionfish, lionfish fillet and lionfish fishcakes.


"We caught 16 lionfish between three of us with Hawaiian slingshots when we were diving and shared that with the group. They grilled them up and it was one of the best things there to eat."


We hope you'll join us for this thrilling specialty dive to help protect our local reef during your next trip to the island!

Top 5 Reasons for Belize With your +1

Love-at-St.-Georges-Caye-Resort-Belize Photo Cred. Todd Avison - JRP Project

When we think about travel, we can't help but feel a more worldly feeling about how we will come away from the experience. Even if it is just a local staycation, travel offers so much to remove us from "reality" and place us in a mindset of relaxation, adventure-seeking, and reflection. Here are the top five reasons to come away to Belize with your +1 new year (or sooner) and we can't wait to host you in the sun!

Learning and Experiencing Together: Travel allows us to learn so many different things. We become educated and enlightened by the diverse cultures and ways of life, the geography of where our destination lies in the world, and the way billions of people live so differently than ourselves. At the same time, We learn about how our lives are intertwined and how we can impact one another. This gives us an incredible perspective on our small part of the globe and how we play an integral role in a global ecosystem. Doing this with someone who is close to you, allows you to discuss your impressions and revisit this impactful experience together for years to come.

Thank you to guests, Paul and Bree Morton for these incredible images!

Relaxing in Paradise Together: Travel provides a much-needed and well-deserved break from the hum of our daily lives. It provides us with adventure and excitement, and experiences to fill our lives with memories and sources of daydreams in the future. Most importantly for many people, it allows for total disconnection and relaxation. When we venture to a new space or environment, we're intrigued by all the novel things that surround us, it is a way to distract ourselves from social media, devices, TV and other energy-consuming things, and focus our energy into natural wonders. We forget about our jobs, our classes, and all our other responsibilities. We travel to escape our mundane lives and to move to a different beat.

Photo Cred. Paul and Bree Morton

Discover The World Together: Travel allows us to discover! Whether it's an interesting locale or a newfound favorite dish, the experiences we encounter allow us to enhance our palate, and our eyes and enlighten our senses to a whole world of new things. We travel to not only see more of it, but to lso discover more about ourselves in the process. When you experience this with your closest friend or loved one, it allows you to share your discoveries, and enhance all that there is to encounter. Through the challenges that we face and the experiences that we gain, we discover our strengths, our limitations, and our potential.

Photo Cred. Paul and Bree Morton

We travel to make new friends: St. George's Caye Resort is well renowned for offering a chance to meet new people. With our "family-style" dining, you can meet people of all walks of life. This is one of our guests' most surprisingly pleasant experiences. Couples meet other individuals and couples and share stories from their lives as well as current adventures while at the resort. When you travel, you meet people of diverse backgrounds and experiences and every single one of them has the potential to play an important role in forming your newly gained perspective.

And last but certainly not least, we travel to appreciate life: When you're mired in your daily life, it's easy to lose sight of what you have. Your eyes aren't open to what's special about your home. Exploring another place will give you a fresh appreciation for your hometown, country and "real life." Once you're back, you'll feel lucky to live where you do. You'll see that there really is no place like home.

Belize Celebrates - St. George's Caye Day & September Celebrations

Overlooking-SGCR

When is St. George's Caye Day? St. George's Caye Day is a public holiday in Belize, observed on September 10th. This is Belize's National Day and commemorates a victory in a key battle against the Spanish in 1798.

History of St. George's Caye Day - From the sixteenth century, the Spanish had been making attempts to control the region of the Yucatan coast which includes modern-day Belize. They never settled due to the lack of natural resources and the hostile Indian tribes. The first Europeans who put down roots were British sailors.

A Base for Buccaneering - Pirates would use the numerous cays (a low bank or reef of coral, rock, or sand) in the area as a places to lay in wait to attack passing Spanish ships. These pirates were known as 'filibusters', a word that is used in modern English for those who delay a political process.

Known as Baymen, these Europeans settled in the Belize City area in the 1650s after realizing they could make a living by cutting and exporting logwood back to Europe.

The importance of the timber industry to the country is shown on the flag of Belize, whose seal features a woodcutter's starter pack - three axes, a saw, and a mahogany tree.

In the mid-eighteenth century, the Spanish made several attempts to take control of the region. The conflict continued despite several treaties being signed by the Spanish and the British which were supposed to safeguard the rights of the Baymen.

On September 10th, 1798, the Spanish made an assault on the settlement with 32 ships and over 2,000 troops. They engaged with the Baymen at St. George's Caye and despite the overwhelming Spanish numbers, the Baymen won a decisive victory, that ended Spanish interest in the region.

In 1862, Britain formally declared the settlement a British Crown Colony, subordinate to Jamaica, and named it British Honduras.

How is St. George's Caye Day Celebrated?  Various Festivities take place to mark the holiday including an official ceremony on the eve of September 10th, with fire-works and cultural presentations. On September 10th, a colorful carnival parade with floats depicting the national symbols of Belize.

St. George's Caye Day is also followed 11 days later by another notable holiday, Independence Day, which marks Belize's independence from Britain in 1981.

Belize Unites to Celebrate Independence - On September 21, 2021, Belize will celebrate its 40th anniversary of independence. This day commemorates when the nation was granted independent status by Great Britain in 1981. Celebrations run from 'St Georges Caye Day' on September 10th right up until Independence Day, on September 21st. During this time, Belizeans and tourists alike partake in prideful flag-waving, display of colorful patriotic decorations, numerous vibrant parades, lively singing and dancing, carnivals, and indulgence in tasty feasts of local Belizean cuisine. There are also official flag-raising ceremonies and more solemn observances, along with educational events on Belize's history and culture. The celebrating continues for much of the month and is known collectively as "The September Celebrations." 

Stay and Play Next Independence Day - September is a great time to venture to Belize. Tourism is still in the lower season so great group rate discounts and other specials are plentiful. Diving is desirable year-round and at this time of the year can be coupled with other cultural excursions or just a little R&R

A Brief History of Belize - European colonists first arrived in the area in the 1500s and clashed with the surviving remnants of the ancient Maya Empire. Early attempts by Spain to formally annex Belize were hampered by strong resistance from the Maya. English buccaneers later gained a foothold on the coast region, using the area to launch attacks on treasure-laden Spanish ships from Panama and Venezuela. By the early 1700s, English settlers known as "Baymen" established a presence in Belize, logging the valuable hardwood for export back to Europe. Today, the Belize flag features a stylized English "Bayman" logger in recognition of this part of the country's history. Although the Spanish initially tolerated the presence of English settlers in the area, things came to a head in 1786 when the British government appointed an administrator to oversee the region. After several years of clashes, the British gained full dominance over the region following a decisive naval battle off the coast of St. George's Caye on September 10, 1798, a date now celebrated as a national holiday in Belize. In 1862, Britain formally annexed the area, naming it British Honduras (after the Bay of Honduras, not the modern-day country of Honduras). In 1954, constitutional reforms were enacted and a constitution was written. In 1964, Britain awarded the colony self-rule, and George Price became the colony's first premier. In 1973, the colony was renamed Belize and the country was granted full independence in 1981.

Say Yes to Self Care - Island Style

Spa---St.-Georges-Caye-Resort---Belize Set Your Sights on The Spa

Summer is winding down for many countries in the Northern Hemisphere. Kids are heading back to school, and the smell of fall is in the air. In the last two years, it has become even more important to balance physical and mental wellbeing. The season's change is a perfect time to start new routines, plan ahead, and get back to your self-pampering routines.

We thought it would be helpful to have a bit of a list for "self-care" island style.

  • Seaside Yoga - Yoga offers physical and mental health benefits for people of all ages. And, if you're going through an illness, recovering from surgery, or living with a chronic condition, yoga can become an integral part of your treatment and potentially hasten healing. The health benefits are further enhanced while performing your practice seaside. With sweeping views from either the dock or the beach, your senses are sure to be filled with joy, peace, and endorphins while moving through your meditations.
  • Reading Outdoors - Reading books benefits both your physical and mental health, and those benefits can last a lifetime. They begin in early childhood and continue through the senior years. Reading allows your mind to drift and let the story take you away. Add this to reading in a lazy hammock with the aroma of sea salt and fresh fruit in the air, and what better way to unwind and truly immerse yourself in peace.
  • Coral Reef Snorkeling – Exercise, including snorkeling, can help relieve stress and anxiety, according to the Mayo Clinic. The controlled mouth breathing required of snorkelers is similar to many of the meditative breathing techniques that seek to relax and calm the body. Snorkeling regularly may help you feel calmer and at ease through simple relaxation. Snorkeling itself improves overall strength and endurance, reduces stress, and burns about 300 calories an hour. Not to mention, Snorkeling allows beachgoers to experience the wonders of the ocean and encounter vibrant sea life that transforms the ocean floor into what seems like another planet. Observing sea life in its natural habitat can be very relaxing to snorkelers and help relieve sufferers of anxiety and attention deficit disorders. Guests rave about the world-class snorkeling at St. George's Caye Resort - Belize
  • Complimentary Water Sports - Water sports are very popular not only because of the adrenaline rush, while getting tanned and toned, but also because of several health benefits. Through this quiet experience, you breathe in fresh air and be one with nature. Watersports lifts your spirit up, sets you in a good mood, and keeps you refreshingly energized! And if you are a more health-conscious person, you will be glad to know of the following added health benefits that water sports offer.
  • Spa and Relaxation Treatments - "Going to a spa is a way of getting taken care of that is long-lasting and both physical and mental -- and we can carry that feeling of being cared for with us for a period of time. Very often that can help us cope better with stress," says NYU professor of psychiatry Virginia Sadock, MD. Moreover, she says, most spa treatments involve being touched, a key element in helping us relax and feel better. Our spa treatments range from deep tissue to hot stone… even head-to-toe treatments to delight and relax the senses.
  • Fresh Views – Air – Sunshine - Sunlight and darkness trigger the release of hormones in your brain. Exposure to sunlight is thought to increase the brain's release of a hormone called serotonin. Serotonin is associated with boosting mood and helping a person feel calm and focused. At night, darker lighting triggers the brain to make another hormone called melatonin. This hormone is responsible for helping you sleep. Additionally, researchers have noted a link between exposure to the sun and lower blood pressure levels, with reduced death rates from cardiovascular issues. They suggest that exposure to sunlight triggers the skin to release stores of nitrogen oxides, which cause arteries to dilate, lowering blood pressure, and may reduce the impact of metabolic syndrome.
  • Last, but certainly not least - Total Disconnection - A simple and direct way to disconnect is the "Resolve to take one full day off each week during which you do not touch your computer, check your Smartphone, or make any attempt to keep in touch with the world technology.", according to https://healthylivingdaily.net/.

This sounds simple enough, but what are the real health benefits of casual unplugging? Here are just a few:

Promotes an open-minded attitude - Improve social interaction - Strengthens the immune system - Reduces stress levels

We hope you take the time for yourself this coming year and let us pamper you in paradise for the ULTIMATE in self-care!

Witness the Gentle Giant - Manatee

manatee-cow-and-calf

On the island, we have been blessed with many things. We revel in the opportunity to serve incredible people, the ability to create experiences within the world around us, and also to live in this pristine, secluded, natural environment. While out snorkeling with guests this week, we enjoyed one of these natural wonders. We were able to capture a gentle Manatee in its natural environment. This is such a rare opportunity so we wanted to share! We wanted to take this opportunity to tell you a little more about conservation efforts for this incredible creature.

Manatees can be found in shallow, slow-moving rivers, estuaries, saltwater bays, canals, and coastal areas — particularly where seagrass beds or freshwater vegetation flourish. Manatees are a migratory species. Within the United States, they are concentrated in Florida in the winter.

Why is it important to save manatees?

It boils down to a fundamentally basic concept: Manatees are part of a system. If you remove any component from a system, there will be an effect on something else. For example, manatees could die if we kill most of the plants they depend on for food. On the other hand, manatees help control the vegetation that can obstruct Florida waterways. They also provide a benefit by processing the vegetation they eat and passing it back out into the environment as a form of fertilizer. Ecotourism forms the basis for a flourishing tourist industry in Florida. Close to 70,000 people visit Crystal River every year just to see and swim with manatees, thus helping the local economy. There is an aesthetic value to manatees as well. They are fun to watch and we can learn a lot from their non-aggressive, passive demeanor.

Protecting endangered and threatened species and restoring them to a secure status in the wild is the primary objective of the endangered species program of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, an agency of the Department of the Interior. The Endangered Species Web site can be accessed at endangered.fws.gov.

The USGS Florida Integrated Science Center administers the Sirenia Project, focused on long-term research on the West Indian manatee in Florida. More information on that project can be found at fl.biology.usgs.gov/Manatees/manatees.html. 

The Florida Manatee Recovery Plan was developed as a result of the Endangered Species Act and is coordinated by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS).

In October of 1989, Florida's Governor and Cabinet directed the state's wildlife agency to work with 13 "key" manatee counties in Florida to reduce injuries and deaths. These 13 counties were: Brevard, Broward, Citrus, Collier, Dade, Duval, Indian River, Lee, Martin, Palm Beach, St. Lucie, Sarasota, and Volusia. Over the years, these 13 county governments have worked with the state to develop site-specific boat speed zones to reduce the likelihood of watercraft collisions and to implement comprehensive manatee protection plans (MPP) for each county. Other conservation measures deemed important to saving manatees include research addressing biology, mortality, population and distribution, behavior, and habitat of manatees; implementation of management plans; posting of regulatory speed signs and levying of fines for excess speeds in designated areas; manatee education and public awareness programs; and public acquisition of critical habitat and creation of sanctuaries.

Top 10 Reasons to Travel To Belize this Fall

Overwater-Cabana---St.-Georges-Caye-Resort-Belize
As if anyone really needs a reason to travel to sunny Belize... But if you are on the edge of choosing our quaint and sunny little country, these TOP TENS may just help to break the tie! As much of the Northern Hemisphere is falling into Autumn, we offer an endless summer... endless epic sunrises, and sunsets, and service unparalleled by others! We look forward to seeing you in the sun! 

1. Need we point out the proximity to the Caribbean Sea? St. George's Caye is only 7 miles, over clear waters, from the mainland, so we literally offer 360° views of the incredible, teal-blue Caribbean Sea. This gives you the chance to eliminate almost a WHOLE DAY of travel while coming and going. Plus, our transfers are complimentary, so you save big money too!

2. We take you there! When you come as a guest of other locations in Belize, you are on your own to navigate, of course, you can do that while at St. George's too, but our specialty is knowing where to take you for the most incredible, authentic Belizean experience. You will be safe, certain, and sure to experience the best of Belize!

3. No language lessons needed. Most Belize citizens are tri-lingual, with English being the most often-spoken. There is a unique dialect here so you will want to listen closely, but it is the most fantastic attribute to know that when you come to our little country, we speak your language!

4. Getting around is a breeze. With tours leaving the island every day, we make sure you have the chance to see the sights, taste the tropics and take in the culture. If staying put is your preference, we do consider relaxation an "Island Approved Activity"

5. Take a holiday from crowds. As a secluded island, we are the only public business on the island. The rest of the island is populated by vacation homes that are sparsely placed on acres of property. You will feel like you have your own private island. Who can say "bucket list checked!"?

6. Belize is safe and easy to get to from many hubs. With our close attention to cleanliness and care for our guests, we ensure your most pleasant travel possible. There are direct flights from many hubs and some airline tickets are at an all-time low.

7. Leave your calculator home. The U.S.-to-Belize dollar conversion rate is $1 USD to $2 BZD, but since most businesses take U.S. currency, you might not have to remember it!

8. Your "to do" list could get longer in 2021. Archaeologists are always undertaking new Mayan excavation sites and if you have not visited all of Belize's seven World Heritage sites, make a decision to complete the list.

9. Expect to smile a lot. If the world ranked nations by the number of friendly smiles, spontaneous greetings and offers of help, there's no question that Belize would be at the top of the list in 2021 and beyond. Our friendly staff is there to meet and even exceed your every expectation. Be prepared to be WOWED!

10. Nobody will judge you! Do exactly as you please here without making apologies or excuses to anyone (unless you are not traveling alone!). Set a new hammock time record… Eat a as much of a dish that you love and don't think twice – then even eat desert! This is your time to indulge!

St. George's Caye Resort is located 7 miles by boat transfer from the Belize City marina. We are taking reservations for summer and fall, with our worry-free travel policies. We are filling fast so book soon! We look forward to seeing you in the sun!

    The Best of Belize - Travel Pulse Description

    Love-at-St.-Georges-Caye-Resort-Belize

    Travel Pulse is one of the main authorities on international travel. This article features so many of the wonders of our country and the reasons why our quaint destination offers so much in the way of lifelong memories from experiences you simply cannot get anywhere else. 

    "Deep in the forest of Belize ancient ruins of the Mayas. Though best known as a world-class snorkeling and diving location, Belize also offers spectacular natural attractions and the authenticity of a genuine Caribbean getaway. Nestled between Mexico and Guatemala on the Caribbean coast of Central America, Belize is one of the few remaining unspoiled places on earth.

    Offshore, Belize offers the longest barrier reef in this hemisphere, home to the Great Blue Hole, as well as hundreds of islands, and snorkel and dive locations. On land, Belize has hundreds of ancient Maya sites -- both excavated and jungle-covered -- as well as lush tropical rainforests with many species of birds, and exotic tropical flora and fauna.

    If you're looking for an adventurous vacation, Belize has it all, from soft to extreme play, from an adrenaline-charged experience zip-lining through jungle canopies, to exploring a mysterious cave or Mayan ruins, to lazily canoeing down a peaceful jungle river observing nature. Marine adventures are suited for all ages and activity levels, including scuba diving, snorkeling, wind or kite surfing, para-sailing, or cruising on a catamaran. The breathtaking colors of Belize's waters are an invitation to immerse yourself in nature for a safe and enjoyable adventure.

    Belize's history from ancient Maya to recent events are presented in museums, galleries, visitor centers, and street-side stalls, offering insight into the friendly Belizeans you will meet. And while you may not find the sophisticated nightlife of other vacation destinations, Belize's varied cultures, love of music and many holidays and celebrations give ample opportunity to relax your inhibitions and be one with the people of Belize.

    Belize is known for its simple yet flavorful cuisine. Most meals include rice and beans (usually red beans, not the black beans which are more common elsewhere in Latin America) and peppers -- the hotter, the better. The menus (At St. George's Caye Resort) also include fresh seafood and fresh fruits and vegetables from local markets...


    The Philip S.W. Goldson International Airport in Ladyville, about 10 miles from Belize City, serves American, Continental, Delta and US Airways, and is a two-hour flight from Miami, Houston and New Orleans. The best way to get from the airport is by taxi; although an airport bus service exists, it is infrequent and unreliable. Once in Belize City, arrangements can be made for a car rental or other transportation options. Belize City Airport also offers regional service to other cities in the country, as well as Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker.

    Belize has a tropical climate with pronounced wet and dry seasons, although there are significant variations in weather patterns by region. Temperatures vary according to elevation, proximity to the coast, and the moderating effects of the northeast trade winds off the Caribbean. Average temperatures in the coastal regions range from 75º in January to 81º in July. Temperatures are slightly higher inland, except for the southern highland plateaus, such as the Mountain Pine Ridge, where it is noticeably cooler year-round. Overall, the seasons are marked more by differences in humidity and rainfall than in temperature.

    Average rainfall varies considerably, ranging from 53 inches in the north and west to over 177 inches in the extreme south. The dry season is shorter in the south, normally only lasting from February to April. A shorter, less rainy period, known locally as the "little dry," usually occurs in late July or August, after the initial onset of the rainy season.

    The busier time of the year for travelers to Belize is November to May, which are the winter months of the Northern Hemisphere. Still, many visitors prefer the more quiet days of the summer months from June to October for their vacation in Belize. Both times of the year have their own unique attractions and the choice of when to visit is totally up to you, your budget, and the adventure you crave."

    Family Week at St. George's Caye

    Family-Pool

    In October of 2019, we offered the unique opportunity for families with children of all ages to come to the resort. It was a bit of a test pilot in deciding if we were going to offer this annually. And... the week was a wild success!  

    The resort has always been adults only, and the grounds are rustic, natural, and not always "baby proof", but the perfection of nature captured the attention of the children and sent them into awe!  Families that attended are still talking about their experiences to this day.

    So, we did decide to open the island to families once again, and we are truly looking forward to the return of little laughter and wide eyes at this incredible paradise! Our next family week will be October 16th - 24th, 2021. You can reserve directly by calling, texting, or WhatsApp at +1-507-380-9344. You can also email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we would love to welcome you and your loved ones!

    Scroll to read about one of the owner's experiences with her twin 5-year-olds at the resort. 

    "Last October we were able to take the kiddos (who just turned 5 at the time) to Belize. We have been on enough trips to know that typical vacations + kids does not = relaxation.

    However, Belize was different! The kids still talk about it with true joy and it is our absolute favorite family vacation of all time - authentic and natural experiences abound and true relaxation. For the first time since the kids were born my brain and body actually S..L..O..W..E..D down for days on end.

    Everything was just SIMPLE - no meal prep, no TV, limited internet, no traffic, no crowds, no rental car or taxi, no cleaning, no shows or tickets, no WORRIES... the pace was incredible and exactly what we all needed. We appeased our sense of adventure and play all while achieving complete internal relaxation.

    Since we are an adults-only resort, even as owners, we don't have the luxury of bringing the kids to the resort any time that we'd like. When the stars aligned and we were able to bring the kids, we felt the magic that the island held for families and immediately started dreaming of how to offer this as an option for other families.

    We will always be an adult-only resort but are beyond excited to establish a "family week" so we can share this incredible experience with others who want to embrace a trip like no other with their families." ❤️

    "Grand Slam" Game Fishing in Belize

    Fishing-in-the-Caribbean---St.-Georges-Caye-Resort-Belize

    Belize has world-class game fishing that is, in some cases only recently being discovered by anglers. This is a benefit, because the area is not over-fished, and still serves as a pristine opportunity to wrestle with some of the largest game fish in the world. 

     Located in Northern Central America, this English-speaking country is home to UNESCO's World Heritage Site the Barrier Reef – the largest in the Western Hemisphere and home for unmatched game fishing. This coastal country is an easy and sometimes direct hop from the United States and Canada. Belize is also home to hundreds of islands (Cayes "Keys") making for a variety of sites for lodging between fishing excursions.

    Catching the BIG ONE

    In Belize, a sport fisherman can pursue their dream of a "Grand Slam" of bonefish, tarpon, and permit in the same trip. We're fortunate to be located adjacent to the flats, close to the reef, and a short ride from the Belize River, so guests can enjoy a variety of fishing on their Caribbean vacation.

    Cast the lagoons for snook or ladyfish, or troll the reef for kingfish or barracuda. Jig the bottom for snapper and grouper. Or meander up the Belize River. Whatever you choose, it is best to rely on guides for the best and safest fishing experiences. If you choose to stay with us at St. George's Caye, our professional guides are here to make your Belize fishing experience memorable.

    TARPON

    Did you know the shallow waters of Belize contain the only classic tarpon flats outside of Florida? Our flats are renowned for the opportunity to site cast to tarpon 12 months of the year. Tarpon numbers begin to increase in April and May and drop off in September or October, with the peak months being June, July, and August. Some resident tarpon stay throughout the year. Moon phases tend to affect tarpon more than other fish so the guideline is to fish around the new moon. But remember, this is only a guideline and plenty of folks catch tarpon at other times too.


    CHARTER TRIPS

    Whether you're a novice angler or an avid fly fisherman, you'll have an unrivaled experience on the water with our guides. You may add a fishing trip to any stay (we recommend reserving several weeks ahead). We also have Fishing Packages combining your room and meals with multiple days of fishing.

    Fishing trips include the use of guide's gear, completely outfitted, as well as bait and all assistance needed. (Feel free to bring your own gear, if you prefer.)

    Beverages included; lunch provided for full-day trips. Cleaning, preparation, and cooking of fish – no charge. (Permit, bonefish, and tarpon are always released; some snook, snapper, barracuda, and grouper may be kept for the table.)

    BELIZE PERMIT

    Permit are found on what is called "the bonefish flats" and on many of the tarpon flats as well. They are found in large schools and range from four to thirty pounds, with the majority in the range of eight to ten pounds. Jack crevalle, barracuda, cobia, and snook are also found on the flats and in the mangrove lagoons. Permit fishing tends to be more predictable when the prevailing winds are most consistent - generally in the winter, spring, and summer.

    BONEFISH

    The bonefish in the waters of Belize run from two to five pounds and are plentiful year-round. Most fly fishing for bonefish is done from the bow of the boat, but there are flats that may be waded as well.

    GRAND SLAM SEASON
    June, July, and August are considered the best overall fishing months because there are good numbers of permit, bonefish, and tarpon available. (Yes, summer! All rooms have a/c, the island has a nearly constant breeze, and airfares are the lowest all year.)

    FISHING OFF THE DOCKS

    Casting a line off our docks is a complimentary option – bring your own rod and reel, or check out free fishing gear with a member of our staff. We can also help with bait and finding the best spots to hook a snapper, grouper, or snook. (Please keep in mind finding adequate baitfish is dependent on tides and weather conditions.)

    Rest - Restore - Recharge - February 19-25, 2022

    Belize-2018-02143

    St. George's is excited to bring you our first hosted retreat courtesy of Horizons Retreats and Marni Henderson & Kelli Sol. Get registered for this incredible week of rest, restoring, and recharging. 

    When: February 19-25, 2022

    Where: Just 7 miles from the coast of Belize in Central America is St. George's Caye Resort. This secluded private island resort is sure to bring plenty of rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation. The island vibe is slow and easygoing. Belize is located in Central America, between Mexico and Guatemala, on the turquoise Caribbean Sea. We look out at the waves breaking over the beautiful Belize Barrier Reef from our resort.

    What to expect: Slow your mind, relax your body and expand your heart on this soul-satisfying retreat. Part adventure, a lot of play, plenty of self-discovery and relaxation, tons of nourishment, AND all deeply rejuvenating! Let the stress and heartache gently release into the ebb and flow of the warm Caribbean waters. While exploring ancient Mayan ruins, you realize that the weight of life has started to melt away. You hear the whispers of an old friend only to realize it is your wholehearted self welcoming you back. Your whole being feels: REFRESHED · RENEWED · INSPIRED

    A note from Marni:

    "This retreat is for all women…..looking for a magical retreat to restore your heart, body, mind, and spirit in beauty. I've been questioned many times about this just being for widows….no…there has always been a beautiful tapestry of women walking all sorts of life paths…..we come together in a common goal to rebuild and restore ourselves from the inside out!

    The week is filled with adventure, luscious nourishment, relaxation, time to disconnect from the routine and reconnect to you…..and a small group of other women. With time to pause and reflect, release and relax, heal and grow, we've thoughtfully planned the experience to follow the rhythm of the Caribbean waters and warm trade winds. I will guide us from beginning to end as we share in daily gatherings of self-inquiry, ceremonies, group reflection, plenty of laughter, tears, and dancing too. The journey continues after we return home as that is when much of our "transformation" occurs when we integrate the experience back into our daily lives. We will meet two more times on Zoom after we return home to support this process. You have many group and 2 one to one sessions with me making it for a well-rounded and truly personal retreat."

    With 3 spots left, we still have a $750 scholarship unclaimed!

    Top 4 Reasons To Plan Your Fall Travel To St. George's Caye

    Sunny windward side dock Pick your paradise vantage point!

    If you are like most, you are in awe with how fast this summer is going. Pretty soon, department stores will display back-to- school racks and coffee shops with be filled with the aroma of pumpkin spice lattes. While it doesn't seem like planning a fall vacation should even be within the wheel house at this time, it is a great time to get ahead with one last getaway of the year! Belize is a great destination for a shift of paradigm and although we are a bit biased, we wanted to highlight a few reasons to come away to visit us in the fall!

    CELEBRATIONS - Belizeans really know how to celebrate, and they go all out during this time of year with parties and festivals taking place during most of September. St. George's Caye Day is Sept. 10th , and it marks the beginning of celebration through Sept. 21st, which is Belize Independence Day. Check out some of the other events happening around Belize in September:

    St. George's Caye Day celebrates and commemorates a battle in 1798 when the Spanish were defeated by slaves, Baymen, and British soldiers. Official cultural ceremonies and parades take place all around Belize on this day.

     Belize Expo Marketplace will be held September 14th and 15th, 2019. Now in it's 23rd year, the expo has become one of the biggest events of the year in Belize. It is a 2 day market showcasing the best products made in Belize. Thousands of people will head to the expo to sample Belizean cuisine and purchase locally-produced goods.

    Independence Day is September 21st and is marked by the annual flag raising ceremony and the party continues throughout the day and into the evening with colorful parades, dancing, music, and many other fun activities. 

    WEATHER - September weather is "just right" averaging 81 degrees. You'll find plenty of sunshine, and early morning and late night showers. The jungles are in green season and are bursting with color and life!

    LESS CROWDED -  Although St. George's really never has crowds, things are a bit more laid back in Belize before the tropical vacation season ramps up. There are so many great excursions and popular sites, such as the Maya Ruins and the ATM Cave, are less populated during this time of year. It's also a great time to connect with the locals, who always warmly welcome visitors from other countries.

    THE KIDS ARE BACK IN SCHOOL - After a summer packed full of fun with your kids, it's time to take a quick getaway to refresh and recharge. While September in Belize is full of parties and celebrations, St. George's is tucked away from the main events and is a serene private island paradise where you can kick back and relax.

    You can take the "you time" that you have hoped for all summer. Just you and paradise. Let us do the rest!

    When you embark on an international trip, it is a thrilling event. You will evaluate where, when, and how and may even be on the fence about your plans. Just for you, we have come up with five ways to debate your destination.

    • Gauge your time to travel: If you have 4 nights, it may be wise to plan a trip with a short flight. You will also want to consider additional travel time once you have landed. We often receive the question about how close we are to the airport. One of our claims to fame is that we are the closest Caye (island) to the mainland, and offer complimentary – by-boat transfers, saving you almost a full day of travel to and from and almost $150 per couple in lieu of taking a small plane to other islands.
    • Decide your travel goals: Do you long for adventure? Or, do you revel in the idea of total relaxation? There are places that cater to both or, even a little of each. It is important to identify your travel goals so that when you return home, you feel like your vaca was a complete success! Just for a little food for thought, check out all the relaxation and adventure possible at St. George's Caye Resort.

      • Excursions
      • Accommodation
      • Meals
      • Entertainment
      • Souvenirs
      • Miscellaneous
    • Get Recommendations from well-traveled friends or check reviews: If you have dozens of destinations on your list, it can be trickier to plan a vacation. It might help to speak with a friend who has traveled extensively, or research Google, Facebook, or Tripadvisor. Here are some questions to ask an experienced traveler for inspiration and recommendations:
      • When and why did you decide to travel?
      • What was the most memorable experience of your last trip?
      • What advice do you have for someone who wants to travel?
      • What inspires you when you travel?

    Where is Belize Anyway?

    Programs---Global-Service-Partnerships---St.-Georges-Caye-Belize

    Are you anticipating planning your next getaway? You literally have a world of options.

    We are, of course partial to our little cultural and ecological gem but we love hearing of our guest's other worldly travels. For those of you who hear the word "Belize" and wonder, "Where is that country anyway?" We want to give you lots of fun details about our small but fulfilling destination!

    Travelers often think of Belize for a quick trip because many US international airports offer direct flights. Houston, Atlanta, Miami and seasonally even chilly Minneapolis offer direct non-stop flights. Belize is also on the Central time zone so when traveling from the US, we are just a couple hours difference from most US states. 

    So, where is Belize Anyway?

    Belize is located on the eastern coast of Central America, just south of Mexico. Our warm climate, natural beauty, historical sites, along with the second-largest barrier reef in the world, make Belize an excellent vacation destination!

    Fast Facts about Belize

    • Belize has a population of 392,407 and has the lowest population density in Central America with 35 people per square mile.
    • Although Belize City is the largest city in the country (it is also the country's main port and industrial hub), the city of Belmopan is the capital of Belize.
    • Belize has around 450 islands called Cayes "(pronounced "keys").
    • Time Zone: Central Standard Time (CST) and does not observe daylight savings time.
    • Climate: Subtropical. Temperatures range from 50-95 degrees, with an average temperature of 80.
    • English is the official language of Belize, although almost all Belizeans speak several languages such as Spanish, Mayan, and Garifuna.
    • The U.S. Dollar is widely accepted throughout Belize. The Belize Dollar has a 2:1 exchange rate, which means your money goes further during your vacation!

     Top Tourist Attractions

    Lamanai Maya Ruins: Lamanai features three large pyramids, various restored stelae, and open plazas as well as a unique ball court.

    Great Blue Hole :The Great Blue Hole is an UNESCO World Heritage Site and remains one of the top dive sites in the world. St. George's offers a full-day dive trip to the Blue Hole for experienced and advanced divers.

    Ambergris Caye/San Pedro: This 25-mile long island is popular with the snorkeling and diving communities due to the easy access of the barrier reef. After your underwater adventures, explore San Pedro, Ambergris' main town. Here you'll find beachside restaurants, lounges, and shops! Here at St. George's, you can easily explore San Pedro by booking our San Pedro Slam excursion.

    Hol Chan Marine Reserve: This is a prime spot for snorkeling and diving due to the clear waters and abundant sea life. It is separated into four zones: mangroves, reef, sea-grass beds, and Shark Ray Alley. 

    How to get to Belize

    Visiting from the U.S.? Getting to Belize is easy-peasy! It's not unheard of to swing down for an extended weekend trip, as there are many direct flights out of hubs such as Dallas-Ft. Worth, Chicago, Miami, LA, and more. Many of these airlines fly to Belize daily, which makes it easier than ever to visit us!

    If you are flying in from Canada, check out airlines such as WestJet, Air Canada, and Avianca for

    When looking for flights, be sure to arrive at Phillip S.W. Goldson International Airport (BZE).

    Belize truly is a gem, and we hope you've now added it to your travel bucket list!

    We Are Blessed By Our Guests

    Kayaking---Belize-Island-Paradise---St.-Georges-Caye-Resort-Belize

    When you operate a resort, you have the opportunity to welcome the world. We have had the privilege of hosting guests from all walks of life over the last forty years, ranging from all corners of the globe. Every once in a while we have the honor of hosting retreat leaders, photographers, travel agents, and in this case, travel influencers.

    Inspired - Hopeful - Vibrant - 2nd Edition

    Belize-2018-02143

    My reservation had been held at St. George's Caye Resort in Belize since March 2020 and this seemed like the perfect place to unravel the tightly wound tension spring before it broke on its own. Realizing there would never be a perfect moment to re-emerge into travel, I started the process of re-booking my trip in late February 2021. I have gone through a couple of passports in my lifetime, but for the first time in my adult life, I was nervous to travel. Things in the world are different and new rules were in place. Despite the chatter of how, if, when, and what questions kept the uncertainty party going in my brain, I chose to let the power of imagination and dreaming forward lead the way. What kept me motivated while navigating the uncertainties of traveling in 2021 was staying focused on the end result. I could see myself totally refreshed, relaxed, and more importantly, a better human after slipping away to the ocean, sand, sunshine, delicious fresh food (Belizean rice and beans), no Wi-Fi, good human connection, adventure, and Mayan Ruins.

     The steps for travel to Belize were clearly laid out by the resort along with information from the Belize Tourism website. Of course, St. George's is already a Gold Standard Hotel and meets all the criteria for transportation, tour guiding, and safety protocols. From pre-departure arrangements with Oliver and Jahnene to Cordell taking us to the Health Clinic for the COVID test before leaving Belize, their staff made a return to travel well worth the wait. This in turn beautifully set the stage for a relaxing, nourishing, invigorating, easy, heart-swelling, and fear mode busting experience.

    This island is private, quaint, and calm which gives plenty of space for personal reflection, family connection, or visiting with other guests and staff. And there are so many options to play as well. With a menu that is pre-planned, it took the stress out of wondering what time, what to choose and where to go for each meal. Somehow, each time we sat down at our private table for four, not only was the food delicious, but they also met every one of our food requests without having to remind them. For people with diet accommodations, this is a huge relief, and it makes the meal experience so enjoyable.

    Because we also love to engage the local culture, we traveled inland to fulfill our Indiana Jones fantasy of exploring the Lamanai Mayan site, zip-lining through the jungle, and floating through magical river caves. Each leg was seamlessly curated by the staff leaving us to simply enjoy the diverse culture, experience the natural beauty, people, and history of Belize. Once again, following the guidelines for tourism in Belize, the staff made it easy for us to safely support what makes up such a large and important part of their economy.

    After sharing fascinating conversations with the tour guides on how they were so grateful to be working again, the common thread of human perseverance brought life into perspective.Our decision to travel there, despite all the uncertainty, was positively impacting their lives in a responsible and respectful way.The profound significance of the last year on ALL of humanity became so clear.As a collective, we were beginning to re-emerge together.

    This was the escape that I needed, and St. George's Caye – Belize was the perfect destination.

    Inspired - Hopeful - Vibrant | Island Vibes at SGCR

    IMG_8358

    Jumping into the beautiful teal blue Caribbean Sea with a life jacket was the first of many steps taken while choosing to re-emerge from the last year. I knew long before that moment that I had slipped into default survival mode but could not tell how far. It was apparent there would be an unpacking of coping skills that may have become habits based on fear. Although the trip was previously scheduled for March 2020, I intentionally kept my bags packed in plain sight as a reminder to someday TAKE THE TRIP. Since then, I have been cautiously peeking my head out from behind a metaphorical curtain to see when it was safe for travel. For the last 12 months, the world has navigated unprecedented circumstances and re-adjusted time and time again with hope, fear, loss, best effort, exhaustion, highs, lows, and everything in between. Back to the life jacket moment....

    Gloriously smiling with wind tousled hair and skin covered in briny crystals of the Caribbean Sea, I was mesmerized by the "turquoise highway" and the never-ending horizon. My eyes stretched to soak in the natural beauty as the boat stopped at our snorkeling spot just beyond an opening in the reef. And then, it started to happen. Like a ping pong ball bouncing between opposing thoughts of "what if" and "seriously, it is saltwater, you float", I was feeling my brain go through the back-and-forth contemplation of risk vs. benefit and a long list of potential scenarios. My body tensed up and my mind went into overdrive. I was nervous to get in the water. I had never thought twice about jumping into the ocean before that day so what was the big deal about throwing a life jacket on when jumping into the beautiful waters of Belize? Nothing....

    But it was a clear indicator of the shift that had occurred since the last time I was in the ocean. My fear center was the main attraction on stage right now and I knew it. I was working from a place of heightened caution. Until then, I had not realized how much caution had taken over my interactions with life. At that moment, it was fascinating to witness my fear response play out in an otherwise totally exciting and enjoyable experience.

    Choosing to enjoy myself and get in the water, I chose the middle road, grabbed a hold of the life jacket, and jumped in. The looks of accepting another embarrassing "Mom moment" covered the faces of my two boys patiently waiting in the ocean. It took three breaths with my face underwater to relax into the magical world of the Belize Barrier Reef. Like an old friend, the spark of playful curiosity quickly dissolved any fear as my attention shifted to the subtle outline in the sand of an enormous manta ray about 30 feet below.

    Moments later, I realized the life jacket was now in my way and I did not need it anymore. Along with all my tension and stress, the life jacket trailed behind in the wake of my flippers. The warm Caribbean waters started to wash away the heaviness, worry, fear and grief I had been holding onto for way too long. When I emerged to the surface, I realized how wonderful it felt to be here again. Not only was it fantastic to be here at St. George's Caye in Belize, but it was also amazing to feel once again inspired, hopeful, and alive.

    Now more than ever, taking the time to heal and recover is imperative to the health and well-being of humanity. I am so glad I grabbed the life jacket and jumped in! It is one of many steps taken to shift out of the survival mode and onto the road of re-emerging into life. Grab your life jacket and let's go!

    Paddleboarding the Blue Waters of Belize

    paddleboard-belize-cover

    When we were packing for our trip to St. George's Caye Resort a thought occurred to me: I should bring my paddleboard. It is an inflatable SUP so it wouldn't be that difficult to pack my clothes around the gear and get on the plane. My very sensible wife convinced me that the resort had boards available and that I would be able to get on the water at anytime. She also reminded that we were headed to the private, quite reserve of St. George's Caye to relax! So off we went sans board. I was cautiously optimistic that boards would be at the ready.  

    As we flew over the continent and we reached the east coast, the bright blue Belizean waters revealed themselves. I have see the water in Mexico, I have seen the water in Hawaii and I have seen the water in Bali but I have never seen water this colour before. It is vibrant. A real treat for my travelling eyes. As I peered out that airplane window all I could think about was, "When do I get to paddle?!". One of our hosts explained to us that there is a shelf along most of the Caribbean coast line. It is wide and an average of about 5' to 12' deep. Sounds perfect! 

    We were escorted from the airport to a boat waiting for us at a nearby dock. Getting to St. George's Caye Resort is a short boat shuttle from Belize City. It is only 7 miles making the trip quick. Arriving at the island we were greeted with smiling faces, a colourful refreshment and...there they were, all tucked away in a seaside rack – the paddleboards! My smile was ear to ear and my wife gave me that 'I am happy for you' and 'see, I told you there was nothing to worry about' look!

    That evening it was all I could do not to jump on a board and go explore but we were being treated to the weekly Saturday evening beach bonfire and dinner. Wow, what a way to start an island vacation. We got to know some of the staff, introduced ourselves to the other guests and got acquainted with our new home for the next week. John, my business partner and fellow paddle addict, and I discussed our game plan for the next morning. We had some exploring to do.

    The next morning after fresh coffee and a hearty island breakfast, we were ready. We checked out the selection of boards, sized up paddles and off we went. St. George's Caye is a small island. I think has a circumference of about 2.5kms (about a mile). There is a windward side and a leeward side. We chose to start on the leeward side. It is more sheltered and adorned with mangroves. The water is very peaceful and never very deep.  

    One of the first things we discovered was a manatee habitat. Who knew?! Right off the docks of the resort live a family of sea cows. We were hopeful to see one but know that sea life can be elusive. Not for us it seems! We saw a little splash from our standing view point so we went to investigate. Paddleboards are the perfect vessel for experiencing sea life. They are quite and your view point is much higher that a kayak or boat. As we got closer to the manatee we notice there were two – an infant and an adult. How cool! They saw us, swam right under the board and then swam away to mind their own business. We carried on through the mangroves back to the resort to report on our sightings.  

    That evening we were given a show by the Belize sky. Our first vibrant sunset was about to happen. The first thought in our minds – let's go get boards! Our we went towards the every changing array of colours as the sun sank down below the horizon. The waters calmed right down and we enjoyed the peace and serenity that the glowing hour bestowed upon us. It was at this moment we were falling in love with this little slice of paradise. 

    After seeing our love for being on the water, other guests and staff encouraged us to take advantage of a sailboat ride out to the sandbar. Oliver rigged up the sails and took us on the short journey just off the end of the Caye. It was spectacular. We played and snorkelled in three to five feet of warm, clear water. Our senses over flowed. As we sailed back John and I both knew we were paddling back out the next day. Everyone thought we were crazy. That is was too far. Being from Canada and paddling in the North Pacific made us feel comfortable with the distance. We decided to approach the sandbar from the leeward side of the island. We thought we would avoid any wind or major currents that way. Once off the tip of the island we realized just how close we were and it had only been about 20 minutes of paddling. We were about to head straight out to the sandbar and meet the sailboat when all of the sudden John spotted something... 

    A single splash off the bows of our boards turned out to be a few splashes. One, two and then three dolphins popped up and started to get curious about us. I was elated. Seeing a dolphin in the wild was definitely a bucket list activity. My wife absolutely loves dolphins and although I knew she would be overjoyed that we saw some, she would want to come explore as well.

    All of the sudden two more dolphins joined us. We paddled with this pod of five amazing and curious creatures for close to an hour. They would feed, play, swim and come by us once in a while to check us out. We paddle gently and took photos until our camera ran out of batteries! John and I saw some friends anchor the sailboat and we decided we would try to paddle corral the dolphins over to them. Like we thought we were some sort or paddle dolphin ranchers! Just when we though the dolphins were going along with our plan, they took a turn and went off in the other direction. But wow, what an incredible experience. Paddleboarding with dolphins.

    The buzz about paddleboarding was growing around the guests at the resort. Many guests who had never tried it before saw what we were experiencing wanted in. It was really cool to see people new to the sport give it a try and get the same feelings we were getting. That brought us a lot of joy to share this lifestyle we enjoy so much with new friends.

    That evening the sunset show was back on and the ladies joined us. The colours were slightly different but just as magical. We were out there until dark and loved being on the water with our loves. It is calm, connected and creates a different sort of bond when you do things like this together. We still reflect back on our time paddling together in the warm Belize sun. Watching for rays and dolphins and just talking about life. It is moment in our lives we will always look back on and cherish. What made it even better was sharing the time with two very special friends.

    On about day four of our stay at St. George's Caye Resort we gained a reputation and the crazy Canadian paddleboarders. We took on the moniker with pride and lived up to the expectations. John and I were determined to discover more sea life, paddle around the island and go back to the sandbar again. In our travels we saw countless stingrays, manta rays, manatees, barracuda, tarpon, a nurse shark and even a crocodile! Now don't freak out, the croc was quite a ways from the resort and he took of like a shot as soon as he saw us (hence no picture...you'll just have to take my word for it!). I can tell you, experiencing St. George's Caye by paddleboard was incredible and life altering. I recommend it to anyone to try. You don't have to have any paddle experience whatsoever. You can even kneel on the board to get started. Just do it and go experience your island vacation from a different perspective. You'll never know what you'll discover unless you leave the shore!
