By Slickrock Adventures | October 31, 2018

Have you ever considered driving to Belize? Last Thursday we packed up our new truck and trailer to make the 3000 mile drive to Belize. Every year since 1977 one of us has driven to Mexico (in the early years) or Belize (since 1986) with a whole bunch of water sport gear and other stuff we need down there. It takes about 8 days. My partner Cully used to do the drive, but after 20+ years he got pre

Belize Car Rental

By Slickrock Adventures | October 24, 2018

Many people assume it’s a good idea to rent a car in Belize, but in many cases, it’s not that great of an idea. It depends on several factors such as where you intend to go and what you want to do. I rarely recommend renting a car in Belize and this is for a myriad of reasons. First of all, Belize is a small country, so it will be easy and relatively inexpensive to get to almost all lo

Good News From Belize! Belize bans plastic!

If you want to go to Belize for Christmas, you need to start planning early! This me

On our island, Long Caye at Glover’s Reef in Belize, we go snorkeling every day. Belize is located on the Western edge of the Caribbean Sea, and we have all of the Caribbean fish that dwell in other parts of the Caribbean.

Why Belize Must be on Your Diving Bucket List

By Slickrock Adventures | September 26, 2018

When it comes to picturesque locations for diving, Belize is right up there. It’s the second least populated nation in Central America, found between Mexico and Guatemala. This little place has everything for the diver and for anyone who’s looking for more than just adventure under the water.

Beaches Without Seaweed – Long Caye at Glover’s Reef in Belize

By Slickrock Adventures | September 19, 2018

Our island, Long Caye at Glover’s Reef, is 35 miles off the coast of Belize. Several years ago we had our first Sargassum seaweed invasion. Although we have been located at Glover’s Reef since 1991, we didn’t even know about Sargassum until just a few years ago. This season I guess the invasion is so pronounced that it is now in the news, and prospective tourists are avoiding par
