“Why do you want to spend one week in Belize?” my friend asked. “There’s nothing there besides beaches.”
He knew I wasn’t a beach person. I can do a day or two on the beach, but any longer than that and I will get bored and start looking for other things to do. What he didn’t know, though, was that Central America’s second smallest country had lots more to offer than just beaches.
I quickly realised that a week in Belize was nowhere near enough. I had a fantastic time, and I easily would have found enough things to do to keep myself busy for another week or two.
