The Caribbean, between Belize City and Ambergris Caye

Just back from the Belize Tourism Board’s first sponsored travel bloggers’ trip!

With a pool of incredible photos due to trickle in throughout this week, I’m choosing to wait to share all my thoughts with you on this gorgeous, wild country until I can really show you what I found in the jungles, on the rivers, and by the sea.

But to whet your travel appetites, here are a few of my favorite photos from my week in Belize!
