Just returned from 12 of the most exhilarating days my husband and I have spent in years. We started out at the Great House in Belize City, went to the Cayo and explored Santa Elana and San Ignacio, went to Tikal, climbed caves and then went to AC. Looked up Daniel and went to Lamani, snorkeled the reef, ate more variations of beans and rice and coconut rice than I knew existed! Drank lots of Beliken and rum. laugh Came home and it was snowing and 15degrees. This morning it was 7! But, the one thing that Joe and I talk about that sticks out in our minds is the children! We have not seen kids with such big smiles in years! They run and play, small children and older alike, and they are not afraid! They are friendly and happy. They have a trust in us that the kids in the US are not allowed to have and I haven't seen that in the faces of children for years. For that smile alone, I will go back!

Hi SuzyQ (that's my wife's nickname, too!)... Love your thoughts about AC's children... For 20 years we have travelled/dived all over the western Caribbean and many times have had the same thoughts... I don't know who's better off: Spoiled American kids? or kids from Utila, Guanaja or AC who walk on the beach to school, fish in the ocean and go barefoot... As an adult, I know which one I'd like to be!!

Thanks for the topic on children. We are looking forward to our boys, who will be 5 and 7, making some Belizean friends and learning a little about what life is like for children there on our visit next week. Also thanks to those who have posted photos including the playground at the park in San Pedro. It looks fantastic. I think we'll be spending some time there!

SuzyQ - We had the same exact feelings. I will never forget the little boys diving in the lake in Guatemala and how happy they were to show off for us or the children that would wave to us in their yards as we passed by.
