Backpacking in Belize: Mennonite Community at Spanish Lookout

I’ve mentioned before how Belize should not only be about beaches and snorkelling. Having enjoyed the thrills of Caye Caulker and Ambergris Caye, I headed to the capital city Belmopan.

Friday’s Featured Food: WDs Ice Cream, Spanish Lookout, Belize

I really didn’t expect to be featuring a load of cool Belizean treats cuisine wise on my Friday’s Featured Food section, but then again if you’ve followed my journeys, you’ll remember I once worked as an ice cream seller in Bournemouth.

Staying at the El Rey Hotel: The Best Hotel in Belmopan, Belize

While travelling in Belize we decided to spend a couple of nights in Belmopan. Belmopan is the capital city of Belize and often sadly acts as merely a stop over for some.
