Belize Private Island Retreat- Ray Caye Weekend

Take a break from the “real world” on a private island surrounded by magnificent coral reef and tepid turquoise sea. Can you imagine a better place to self-isolate than a boutique luxury resort on a wee island a stone throw from Belize’s beautiful barrier reef?

Fun, sun, and rum- on the Caribbean Sea

Floatchella, a fundraiser for the peninsula volunteer fire department, was huge fun and a massive success. The event is, in essence, a floating bar crawl through the crystal-clear Caribbean Sea around picturesque Placencia. It’s basically a perfect day.
