We certainly know how island rumors can start…and on Ambergris Caye there’s been lots of whispering about a mysterious and exotic new resort several miles north of San Pedro. We heard through the ‘coconut wireless,’ rumors of a Caribbean gem nestled within tropical island foliage, languishing along a secluded beach of sugar white sand. So quite…so peaceful…it was no wonder those who had lingered at this romantic hideaway would want to keep it their own little secret. But of course even the best kept secrets have a way of coming out…and we had to solve this mystery for ourselves! Upon a closer look we were delighted to find the hippest, newest boutique resort on La Isla Bonita, and a secret it is no longer! The world’s premier travel magazine Condé Nast Traveler  just selected El Secreto as one of “The Best New Hotels of 2013″ …we knew that secret wouldn’t last for long! Congratulations to the nice folks at El Secreto!

I’m a sucker for a fuzzy face, a feathered face, a face with fins or even one with scales! I am in love with the creatures and the flora that are synonymous with Belize and every opportunity I have to learn more about them and explore their wild habitats I am there! I’m the happiest when I’m snorkeling the reef and swimming with turtles, however my passion is not just limited to critters! Laced throughout this compact jungle gem of a country live the Kriol, Maya, Garifuna, Mestizo and Spanish people, and experiencing each culture, especially their celebrations is one of my favorite pastimes.
