In August, 2013, J. Copley Griffin, Jake Sinclair, Rebecca Abbott and I traveled to Belize where we rented a two-bedroom beach house in Hopkins Bay, 180 km south of Belize City.
We took a fishing trip down the Sittee River to the Caribbean Sea where we cooked what we caught after snorkeling in the Meso-American Barrier Reef. We traveled inland to the Mayan ruins of Cahal Pech and Xunantunich, across the Mopan River, where we climbed to the top of El Castillo.
We rappelled down waterfalls at Mayflower Bocawina National Park, toured the Marie Sharp's hot sauce factory, bicycled through Hopkins, ate lobster on the beach, drank rum punch by the pool... And on the night of the full moon we went skinny dipping in the salty, warm Caribbean Sea.
