River Rafting and Volunteer Consulting

31. May 2012 at 16:04



“I met this guy on a water taxi”, my friend John said. “He’s starting a business with bamboo rafts on a river. He asked me if I would like to go rafting with him one day and be very critical about the experience. That’s when I thought I should ask you guys.” It took us […]

10. April 2012 at 01:46



Belize has a national animal (Tapir), a national tree (Mahagony), a national flower (Black Orchid) and a national bird (Keel Billed Toucan).

Für andere musste man erst 4, 8 oder 12 Meilen unbefestigte Wege durch den Dschungel fahren. Man schafft ca. 4 Meilen pro Stunde – also schnelle Geh-Geschwindigkeit. Meine […]

Birds, Flowers, Maya: The Lodge at Big Falls

30. November 2011 at 17:44



“Bird watching is like watching paint dry, just not as exciting” I read in some blog the other day. Sums up what I thought about bird watching before we got to the Lodge at Big Falls and Rob Hirons took us around. Doing something is one thing – having someone show you how to do […]

If you read our blog regularly, you’ve already seen us at the Villas at Banyan Bay and know that it’s one of our favorite places on Ambergris Caye for relaxing, diving, eating, swimming etc. Here’s a video of us hunting Moray Eels – also featuring the resident Iguanas. And a cool soundtrack.
