Itinerary Day Eight in Belize: Hanamasi Resort Snorkeling

Our last full day in Belize – we couldn’t say goodbye without a little bit of beach time. So, what better than a day at the beach and going snorkeling?

Itinerary Day Seven in Belize: Waterfall Cave Adventures


There was no doubt we needed some beach time before leaving Central America. Of course, that meant we only had one last adventure before our vacation was over. Which to pick, which to pick – Black Hole Drop or Waterfall Cave?

Runa and I spoke to several groups at our lodging about which they preferred. Both adventures were highly praised as favorites, but the Black Hole Drop seemed like a steep hike following by just a rappel. So, we opted for the waterfalls – I love the water anyway, especially in this humid, hot heat. Bam, done.

Itinerary Day Six in Belize: A Day at Caves Branch

For ease and lack of time, my friends and I settled on Caves Branch – nine days in the jungle!!


Many families and couples that we spoke to at the lodge told us that they had split their time between the jungle and the beach during their time in Belize. I planned this trip in the middle of working the Sundance Film Festival and didn’t think that far ahead. I even had to Skype with Runa in London during our taping of the Daily Buzz to grab her credit card info.

Needless to say, we didn’t regret one moment of our trip. Although next time, beach time would have to be a definite agenda item.

Anyway, on the day that Alex left for home (so he could get back to school), Runa and I stayed on campus.
