The small town of San Pedro, Belize is known for their cobblestone roads and tiny streets packed with golf carts. Thats right, the main source of transportation on this tiny little tropical island is the golf cart. So, we rented our own cart & set off with all 4 kids in tow, to discover and explore the island of Ambergris Caye, Belize. What a fabulous day we had! Our little adventure really gave my kids a look at how the locals of Belize live and created some great memories.
We stopped at a small local school that many of the poorest children in San Pedro attend. My kids were fascinated by the differences from their school in the U.S. and are still compelled to do something to help the school children of San Pedro. We even left the school with a basketball from our local University.
We had to stop at my favorite San Pedro restaurant, Waraguma, for some lobster papusas! Yumm!!!
Minor injuries are a must on every adventure with my brood. Yes, I almost fed my 8 year old to a 100 pound Tarpon fish. A little blood with a few tears and he was all recovered.
After leaving the town, we navigated through the north end of the island. We rode through the tiny jungle lined paths and made a quick stop for cereal and pasta at the Mata Grande Market.
No trip would be complete without a coconut or two…or one really HUGE coconut!
What a day. Full of fun, sun, lots of bumps, and adventure!
