Belize City

Belize City, Belize
July 7th, 2011

Rob and I went on the NCL's excursion called Crystal Cave Tubing And Waterfall Lagoon.  We were lucky enough to be on the first excursion of this particular tour.....before others have not participated in the Waterfall Lagoon part of it!  At the end of our FUN TIMES...they gave us a free hot sauce gift set and a t-shirt for being the first to participate!  FUN...another few free souvenirs!
Our tour guide on our bus with AC was "Flowers"...she was terrific! Very knowledgeable and made our day even more fun with all they history of the area. A strange fact about Belize...they don't have funeral homes...when someone dies their family takes them home with them. The family redresses them and fixes their make-up, etc.......and keeps them in their house until the following day and they are then buried above the ground following a huge block celebration. Death is a celebration for all!
 We got off our bus and hopped on a HOT bus and rode another 5 minutes up a very steep hill. They assured us our other bus would not be able to make it!?!? The forest was so dense and green....it rained on us a little while...but then became hot and muggy again!
 We found all the equipment and got fitted with the goods....vests, helmets and tubes!
 Ready or NOT....here we go!
 We were in a group of 8 people. We had a young tour guide through the caves and he told us if we talked to loud or yelled the crystals may fall from the ceiling....so he was very soft spoken and very hard to hear.
 We walked and walked ~ up and up.....it was WAY HOT!
We were so excited to get to the chilly water in the caves!
 When we got to the very top....we walked back down into the cave to board our tubes.
 Rob had the underwater camera and was the photographer this day!
I am in front of him and ready to get started.

So many stalagmites and stalactites.....simply beautiful!
"cave pearls" and you know how I LOVE PEARLS!!
Rob in his tube...too bad I took the picture backwards and totally missed his tube!
A cool formation called the "waterfall"...not the waterfall lagoon we were to visit next!
Rob loved these stalagmites under the water...he got some great shots of them, too!
Our group tubed through the "waterfall lagoon"...almost impossible to photograph because it was so dark in there...but the lagoon water was a turquoise blue. GEORGEOUS!!!
This is near the exit ...with the light shining in you can kind of see the color of the cave water.
 We walked back up and then down to get back to the main entrance.
 Rob and I ate nachos while the other tours in our group finished.
Back to Belize City to get on the ship... I was so disappointed the restaurant that I loved last time I was in Belize was closed....The Wet Lizard..and I was so looking forward to their Panty Rippa drink! Oh well, there is always NEXT TIME!
 An amazing day together.....now to catch the tender back to our ship!
Goodbye, Belize....until next time!

I was in Belize City last week (1/6/15)and saw several funeral homes. The guide must have been referring to the way they do things in rural areas. I am an embalmer from Illinois.
