On a brief stop in Orangewalk to change the bus from Corozal to Sarteneja we wanted to change US dollars into Belize dollars.
It seemed to us that there were no money exchange places and the bank was closed on a Tuesday afternoon at 2:30pm.
Yvan of the Hotel de la Fuente was the only person who was willing to change our bills. He got a runner who took of with his bicycle.
While we were waiting we had a very nice and informative chat with Yvan. He gave us so may valuable traveling tips for our trip.
10 for service. Thanks for the great conversation, Yvan!
