Marty Online   happy

The city of Chetumal, Mexico is a quick and relatively easy trip from San Pedro, Belize. Hardly a tourism mecca or international hotspot, Chetumal is the capital of Quintana Roo. It is a small city by world standards but has half the population of all of Belize (151,000 vs. 305,000ish). Honestly, I'd never heard of the place before I moved down here.

It is like visiting another world. From McDonald's to Walmart to crowded city streets jammed with traffic lights and cars to the fact that so little English is spoken. I mean really...almost none. Gringos are few and far between. But heck, it's a great way for me to fine tune my charades skills.

Get ready for LOTS of pictures of Chetumal. The park and government area along the water is FULLY decorated for Christmas. I bet it looks spectacular at night, there are lights hanging everywhere.
