I had been to Costa Rica, Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico within the last five years. In Costa Rica, it was all inclusive, and I was dissapointed. In the V.I. it was cush and predictably nice but very, very spendy. Same in Puerto Rico. I liked Caribbean Shores in Belize because it was small, affordable and not pretentious with the same ocean, beautiful beaches, reefs and jungles. Just a great place to stay! You can get to know the locals in Hopkins (appreciate their culture) and it's not dangerous, but gratifying.The beach, hot tub, pool and good restaurants are all there. Even good pizza! Many activities nearby: hike, bike, zip and ride horses. Snorkel or sunrise cruise on the Utopia is a definte reason to return. Trip into Dangriga is bumpy but enlighteing and humbling.
The hospitality at Caribbean Shores, food and comraderie (including the birds,dogs and iguanas) is also pretty sweet. I was hesitant to share the Turtle Room with the next occupant. Kind of thought it was mine for keeps. :) I couldn't wait to open the French Doors to my veranda every morning to smell the fresh coffee brewing..and here the birds..
I'll be back! Thanks Cindy and Joe! Dont work too hard. Luv Ya, Vivion
