My Trip to Belize: Travel Tips, Things to Do, Outfit Details
Hello beautiful people! Welcome back to CRMstyles. Recently, I was fortunate enough to take trip for my good friend's birthday to San Pedro, Belize. This trip was a miracle in disguise for me. It was very eye-opening, meditative and peaceful. There's so many things I wish I could've brought back with me such as the sunset on the ocean's horizon, the compassionate people, the street food and coconuts, and finally the warm consistent weather. Keep reading down below for all the travel tips, food & local spots to visit, outfit details and just a few feel-good photos.
I live in Memphis, TN, and the direct flight to Belize City, Belize was over $2,000. I decided to fly to Dallas, TX first which was a little over $200 and then fly to Belize City, Belize which was a little over $800. If you live in a city without a major hub airport, then be sure to check out connecting flights from a city with a major hub airport.
Once we got to Belize City, we had to take a small plane to San Pedro, Belize, which took about 15 min. Check out this website for those flights. (https://www.mayaislandair.com/belize-flights) Once we landed in San Pedro, we had someone from our villa meet us at the airport to take us to the villa. The city is located on the south part of the island, and our villa was located on the north part of the island. We had to take a 15 min boat ride to our villa from the city. Once we got to our villa, we were greeted by the housekeeper as well as the chef. These were lovely people, very sweet & humble as it seemed everyone on the island was.
The main way of transportation around the island is by golf cart. You can coordinate golf cart rentals with the housekeeper or owner of where you're staying.
Food & Local Spots
We stayed 5 nights and 6 days. We had time to do a few things and visit many food & local spots. I recommend Secret Beach, Jaguar Night Club, the market and renting a boat for a day.
Secret Beach is located on the west side of the island. It's full of bars, food and even an adult floating obstacle course. Be sure to walk down the shore and visit the Swing Bar, which has wonderful food, the coolest owner/chef, and a great DJ. Jaguar night club is located in the city, it was a 25 min drive from our villa on the golf cart. It's the spot to be at according to the locals.
We visited the market on Friday during the day. There were many local shop owners set up in small studio spaces selling different artsy pieces. I bought a few things including a small statue figure, a couple pairs of earrings for my mom & sister, and a stone pipe for my dad. Saturday, we got on the boat all day, and we were able to go snorkeling which was so much fun! I got to see schools of fish, a turtle, dolphins, and nurse sharks. What a time! The boat also took us to the neighboring island called Caye Caulker, also known as "the split". The street food here was AMAZING! Be sure to visit. Although, their coconuts has no comparison to the coconuts that this fellow named Ason was selling on the way to the city in San Pedro, Belize. Check him out.
Honestly, I didn't order any clothes for this trip. I've been trying my best to save money and be more resourceful with the clothing that I already have. Since we were there for a few days, I obviously brought a few outfits, but I wanted to share my favorites. My absolute favorite was this black dress below which I got from SHEIN.
