BC: Hell | Hello to the rest of our lives as husband and wife!

FC: Belize Honeymoon 2011

1: On July 18, 2011 we flew into Belize and took a small plan to Dangriga. | Matt quickly discovered the Beliken. The Belizian beer of choice.

2: Then we took a 40 minute boat ride through the Caribbean Sea from Dangriga to the Cocoa Plum Cayes.

3: Thatch Caye Resort was paradise! A much needed retreat for newly weds.

4: During our seven day stay on the island, we rested in hammocks, read books in hammocks, and star gazed in...hammocks.

5: Island wildlife! The acouti was a rabbit-like animal that loved cheerios and opening beers. | You had to watch where you were walking so you wouldn't step on a hermit crab!

6: We snorkeled along the Great Western Barrier Reef and observed amazing marine life such as giant Caribbean Rays, a Nurse Shark and Lion Fish!

7: We passed the time by strolling along the docks... | playing scrabble and chess... | and posing for pictures.

8: The resort prepared a beautiful, private honeymoon dinner just for us. | The table was decorated with flowers found on the island.

9: Conch Shell ceviche with plantain chips | Jess, the bartender | Juanita, a lone traveler we befriended. | Thatch Caye Central.

10: We decided to take the challenging hike in the Jaguar Preserve as our first mainland tour.

11: There's nothing like fresh cacao from a cacao tree post-hike. Thanks Big D!

12: We followed the Antelope Falls Trail. A 2 mile vertical hike through the jungle. | Giant Termite nest! Matt ate termites for the second time in his life.

13: We used rope and tree roots to hoist ourselves up. Our other guide Cruz, hiked the trail for the first time in flip flops.

14: The dip in Antelope falls made the hike through the jungle worth it.

15: We collected fresh spring water to drink on our way back. It was delicious.

16: We stopped to rest and enjoy the breathtaking view!

17: On our way to San Ignacio we stopped at a Menonite ice cream place (The Country Barn), Marie Sharps Hot Sauce Factory and and the San Ignacio market. | Our second inland tour was to the Mayan ruins, Xunantunich.

18: Xunantunich (Stone Woman) | Xunantunich is said to be haunted by a ghost that is dressed in completely white with fire-red glowing eyes. She generally appears in front of El Castillo and disappears into the stone.

19: Our guide used to fly kites off the top of the ruins when he was a child.

20: Wild monkeys and black orchids! So exciting.

21: Good bye Thatch Caye! We are on our way for our adventure in San Ignacio! | Good Bye Thatch Caye! | Owner Steve Hewitt with the island managers | Children playing off the coast of Dangriga

22: Hello San Ignacio! Hello Adventure! After a grueling bus ride to San Ignacio we were ready for another hike through the jungle to explore a cave.

24: Actun Tunichil Muknal Cave | We had to swim into the mouth of the cave.

25: This cave is where the Mayan ruins made offerings and sacrifices to the rain gods during the great drought.

26: Lots of climbing, crawling and swimming during this tour!

27: The Mayan's offerings are still preserved inside the cave. | The cave was named after this skeleton.

28: The Iguana Project is a refuge for the green Iguana. Their mission is to raise and release the endangered Green Iguana. | The Green Iguana Project | Apparently they taste like Chicken.

30: Baby Iguanas!

32: Pictures of our hotel, favorite restaurants and a shoe repair shop.

33: Good bye San Ignacio! | Good bye Marie Sharpe's Hot Sauce! | Good bye Belize!
