My husband & I spent a day in Belize last week and LOVED it. We had made arrangements to tour around with a local taxi driver and we just spent the day driving around.
We left Belize City and headed south and even spent a few minutes swimming at the Blue Hole National Park. Our desire was just to drive and see what we could see which is exactly what we did.
We also stopped for a late lunch @ JB's watering hole on the Western Highway and had the best lunch of my life. I had a burrito and a belican and I have never tasted lettuce so sweet tasting!
On the table, there was some "pepper sauce", our driver Harry said it's made from jalepenos.I would love to try and make it and wondered if anyone can give me a recipe for it.
Looking forward to maybe a week or two in Belize next summer.
P.S. Our contact never met us in Belize as scheduled so a tour operator @ the docks said he would take our school supplies that we brought to the orphange in Belize City. So I hope he did and that many children are getting the benefit of them. I wish we would have been able to get them to Big Falls school but maybe next time.

Most all the pepper sauce we've ever seen in BZ is Marie Sharps....The green jalapeno one includes:Nopal/Prickly pears, green habanero peppers, onions, garlic, salt, lime juice, vinegar,....we buy it at Tom Thumb!! Good Luck!! C&R

isn't JB's great! We spent one nite there getting plastered with an american from, Iowa or someplace, that owned lots of acres of orangegroves that him and his family had nurtured for the last 20 years or so. Lots of good stories of experiences with the Mennonites! We stayed in one of the cabanas with an old "round bottom tub", a really great experience!Really cool place!!
