I visited Belize for two weeks July 2013 with my girlfriend Shanna, who’s native of a village called Placencia. Wow! What a humbling experience; to inhale life, sit back and enjoy natures beauty, in another place and time, all while enjoying the company of beautiful people.
I was fortunate to have Shanna’s welcoming, loving family open their home to me. Her brother, Shawn, owns a tour shop in Placencia called Pirate’s Point Adventure Tours. He took us out on several different occasions that turned out to be one of the dopest tours of Belize anyone could imagine.
Shawn had access to private-owned land providing horseback riding, cave exploring and waterfalls . It was breathtaking! We ate at various local authentic Belizian restaurants serving its most popular chicken stew with rice and beans. He took us snorkeling all over Belize including Laughing Bird Caye, a boat ride 11 miles off the coast of Placencia Village. He went spear diving, (no gear but one spear) caught some local snapper and lobsters then barbecued them for us on his uncles private isle. We also visited Xunantunich, an ancient Mayan ruin. There was so much to do and see. He was the perfect guide. I would have never experienced Belize the way I did without him.
