In just seven little weeks (that are going to drag by mercilessly), The Mister and I will be swinging from a hammock sipping something cold and fruity in a cheap little hostel in Belize. I’m hoping the hostel looks a little something like that ↑, but I’m feeling far from picky.
We are flying into Cancun, visiting Chichen Itza, and then bussing and water taxi-ing our way down to the Cayes for sun, snorkeling, and a whole lot of nothing. We may try to find a volcano to hike, and I certainly want to get some Spanish practice in. I’ve been feeling a bit rusty on the Español front lately, so while we’re still in Mexico, I’m going to abuse the opportunity!
I’ve been saving up for (and looking forward to) this trip for longer than you can imagine. I haven’t been out of the country in almost TWO YEARS! How nuts is that??? I swear I’m having symptoms of withdraw. I don’t know that this will top three months of backpacking in Central and South America, but it’s certainly going to feel like the glorious break I’ve been waiting for all year! What is the most exciting vacation you’ve ever been on?
Have you guys been to Cancun, Chichen Itza, or Belize? We are in the [loose] planning phase of this trip and are most definitely looking for recommendations of sights to see, places to sleep, and good food!
