The Comparsas are a beautiful part of the tradition of Carnaval. Costumes can range from simple to elaborate.
Carnaval – A Fun Cultural Experience
San Pedranos of all ages will be enjoying the fun of painting during Carnaval 2014 (runs thru March 2nd to March 4, 2014).
With the March winds in full effect, kitesurfers are out enjoying their time in the water.
Caye Caulker Sunset
The glowing sun slowly descending from the sky, submerging into the Caribbean horizon at Caye Caulker.
These birds know what’s up! The best view is at the end of a dock, taking in the breeze and great sights on the water!

What's hot this week
Beauty is found everywhere throughout Belize!
Belize is blessed with some of the worlds’ most beautiful and unique creatures. Some of them are rare within their range such as the Harpy Eagle, Scarlet Macaw or Jaguars whereas others such as the Wish Willy iguana are regular sunbathers you may spot throughout the day when visiting Ambergris Caye. In Belize we are fortunate to have a community of kind hearted people who have dedicated their lives to protecting, conserving and researching our exotic fauna. From sanctuaries for crocodiles, birds, monkeys and even iguanas, to organizations that nurse them all back to health, without these non-profit organizations I dare to think what would become of these animals that need help. In this issue, guest contributor Colette Kase takes us to one such organization, Wildtracks, located in Sarteneja, Corozal District, where she hangs with the monkeys, marvels at the gentle manatees, and champions those who volunteer their time to such a worthy cause.
On the flip side I get to explore a more civilized adventure on Ambergris Caye, where walking on the wild side involves lounging by the pool while sipping Rum Punch, walking the beach, treating my hubby to a seaside massage, trying my hand at gambling and dining on delicious food at Captain Morgan’s Retreat. Yes, from monkeys to slot machines and everything in between, Belize has something for everyone, and of course we can’t wait to share a slice of our Beautiful Belize with you, our very welcome guest!
