This week my boyfriend found out he had a day off so I arranged to take the same day off for a three day weekend. We decided to book a trip to one of the international destinations offered by Southwest Airlines since we have a companion pass and after a lot of looking into flights, the one with the only realistic availability was to Belize City, Belize. We booked the flights three or four days before, booked an Airbnb and on Friday were off!
When we arrived in Belize we went outside and peeled off a few of our Winter layers while waiting for a cab. We thought we were in a cab line but the drivers didn’t seem to notice and the first one to arrive after about ten minutes stopped at the middle of the crowd and accepted the first couple who came to him. He then also grabbed a passenger who was traveling solo, and then us! An interesting start to our journey since it was a five seat car and we had six people. Thankfully the couple who had first joined doubled up in their seat and Martin and I hopped in. The four of us in the back seat were all headed to the ferry to go out to the islands, hoping to catch the last one of the day at 5:30.

We rode around the town for a little bit, then took a trail just off of the water that took us through a more vegetated area.
