Belize: Inland Time

We did one last Bike/Run before we left the island. We spotted this fruit/vegetable stand and bought some fruit. The lady cut up the mango for us! Score! Mangoes are the worst to cut.DSCN1586

Yes, we ate 1/4 of a watermelon between us….DSCN1589

After a shower it was time for our last breakfast on the beach…DSCN1595 I incorporated these “local ingredients” into my breakfast….

We took a 13 passenger airplane back to the mainland. Ben sat in the co-pilot seat!DSCN1620

DSCN1617DSCN1613 After a very bumpy ride we made it to our inland hotel – Black Rock Lodge.DSCN1627

Black Rock Lodge is so secluded! We were in the middle of the rainforest 🙂 There was a hammock right outside our door.DSCN1640DSCN1631

The rooms are very minimal and rustic. It is an eco-lodge and feels like you’re “roughing” it on vacation a bit.DSCN1637All the guests eat together in an open air dining room. It has beautiful views. DSCN1629

The first thing we did was tubing down the river.   IMG_0748 IMG_0734

I did get pooped on though 😦IMG_0737

We ate dinner at the Lodge. DSCN1647They have a set menu, but let you choose from a meat or veggie option.  I chose the veggie option veggie option – it was chickpea curry with rice and veggies.DSCN1652

Dessert was an apple streusel – delicious 🙂DSCN1654

The rainforest is beautiful, but it’s a rainforest – this means bugs everywhere. I’m not a big fan. And I got pooped on!

Monica: “Every time I think I’m an outdoors girl, I do something outdoors and a bug jumps on me and I think – ‘What the F, what the F?!’”
