A trip within the trip
Camera: K20D Photo Location: San Pedro , Belize 
Posted By: daacon, 03-16-2010, 12:40 PM

We took a couple of days while in Mexico and decided to head to San Pedro, Belize. The couple we were with had a friend who was running a week long sky diving gig there. (that would have been cool - parachute to the 'Blue Hole' then they trade their rigs for Scuba gear and dive down the Blue Hole). We drove to Chetumal , then took a water taxi to San Pedro . It was about a 1.5 hour ride and this little boat was quite comfortable actually and it had a DVD player and screen so the time passed quickly.

It was a great time , not much time for pictures but sure was enough time for partying, including getting invited to a Lobster Dinner and I think we tried to hit almost every bar on the Island. I was impressed with San Pedro and hope to get there again.

We arrive and yes that little white shack you see on the shore was 'Customs" haha a rather laid back country. The only thing they asked us was why we only staying a day ! Even the conversion rate for USD was simple so all the bartenders could make change 2-1 for USD it was great spend $10 USD on beer and get $10.00 Belize currecny back good enough for another round ha ha

Very nice, that water looks incredibly calm. And that boat looks to be quite well powered
The last one is very nice too. What lens did you use?

Great series, Dave. The last one makes me feel the sun and taste the beer. Hey, where are my Buffett CDs?

Thanks goddo31 it was prety calm geographically check between Chetumal, Mexico and San Pedro, Belize you will see why. Very calm ride (the first few minutes were rough). These were taken with the trusty DA 12-24.
