A year later and we contacted Dave to set up a day tour during our stop with the Norwegian Star. Dave met us just outside "Touristville" and we walked to a nice little bakery across from the Radisson Hotel. There we had some great coffee and pastries and planned our day.
Our goal was to visit areas in Belize we hadn't seen, eat Belizean comfort food and shop away from the thundering herd of cruise passengers. Dave had the perfect tour in mind. He headed west for Belmopan, the capital. There we took a short tour of the American and Mexican embassy and stopped at the town market.
From a little cinderblock kitchen, sitting on a picnic table came the most remarkable food. Red beans and rice with chicken livers in brown gravy, cole slaw and fresh juice. Absolutely wonderful.
From Belmopan we headed west toward Guatemala and the Mayan ruins of Xunantunich. Totally void of tourists, this site contains six plazas surrounded by more than 26 temples and palaces including the second tallest structure in Belize.
Being part Mayan, David was extremely interesting and knowledgeable in Mayan culture.
Always the gracious host, he stocked our vehicle with sodas, Belikan beer and his own Rum Punch treat. It made for a very comfortable and talkative trip.
I agree with other reviewers. Touring with David is like driving around the country with a good friend. If you don't want a "pick a number" tour, I suggest you contact David. You won't pay any more and the day will be something to remember.
