Hotel Mopan Bugbus, Belize City 1975

My students and I spent a lot of time at the Hotel Mopan 1989 through 1997, arriving and departing from Belize City for archaeological field research on Wild Cane Cay and Frenchman's Cay in the Toledo District. Jean Shaw took great care of us, as well as of the dozens of Earthwatch volunteers that arrived and left every two weeks. My last visit with Jean was sitting on the verandah and catching up with her a few months before she died. What a great person. Glad that her children Jeannie and Tomy were able to continue on and expand it. My students stayed there in 2004 for the Belize Archaeology Symposium and I stayed there a few times as well around that time. We now avoid Belize City entirely and go straight to Belmopan and Punta Gorda. Oh the memories!

Great memories of that place. Mrs Jean Shaw was a wonderful host. I was looking to see if Miss Heidi was on her varanda LOL. That look like Aura Young pan d verandah.
