Summer’s Here: Let’s Make Belizean Chicken Soup
The hotter the climate, the spicier the food – and the idea behind it is: hot (spicy or temperature hot) food makes you sweat, sweat cools you off.
Do NOT pass by the hot sauce OR the soups when you visit Belize. Soup is some of the most delicious food here – try the Conch Soup – a creamy coconutty chower – or fish sere – coconut fish soup with a salty porky pigtail, if you are lucky. Yesterday I thought I’d sweat (more) and make some Belize Chicken Soup with Habanero. The ONLY Belize recipe that I’ve mastered. I love it because you can go heavy or light on any part of it…make it spicier or less spicy…basically, it’s impossible to mess up.

The Great Blue Hole in Belize Is an Unbelievable Natural Wonder Visible From Space
The "Great Blue Hole" couldn't be a more fitting name for the underwater sinkhole off the coast of Belize. The circular site, which can be viewed from space, has become a bucket-list destination for travelers and scuba divers alike. At 984 feet wide and 410 feet deep, the dark blue hole is located at the center of an atoll called Lighthouse Reef. Though the sinkhole appears to continue down an infinite depth, an island of coral that outlines the circle rests in much shallower turquoise Caribbean waters. Parts of the ring are even exposed during low tides, showing the contrast in water levels. The massive hole wasn't always submerged underwater. During the Earth's glacial period when the sea level was much lower, the Great Blue Hole originally formed as a limestone cave. But as the ocean began to rise, the cave flooded and eventually collapsed, becoming the popular dive site it is today. The former cave's calcium salt deposits, which look like yellow icicles, are still preserved and can be seen on one's swim. It wasn't until 1971 when Jacques Cousteau explored the site and confirmed its origins that the site became world-famous. Supposedly, the deeper you dive, the clearer the water becomes and the more complex geological formations appear. It's also believed that the Great Blue Hole is the largest of its kind. See the breathtaking photos ahead!
