our unBELIZEable honeymoon - part 2.

like i said in my last post -
the food in belize was incredible.
we found it to be a mix of 
mexican, caribbean, and mayan culinary influences.
seafood was everywhere - especially conch!
(we were there at the peak of their conch season)
and fresh tortillas, rice and beans, and stew chicken are their staple dishes -
alongside a generous glass of rum punch!

one day we drove to the closest town, san ignacio,
and hiked the mayan ruin, cahal pech
and then grabbed lunch in town at a local restaurant.
on the way back to the resort, our driver stopped at a couple's home
who sells pottery to make a living.
they were the kindest people and taught us how to make our own bowls!
