Don’t remind me… (it’s Hurricane Season)

Today I received an email from our travel insurance company. When you sign up for a trip to Belize with us, you will hear our strong recommendation to acquire a travel insurance policy. We make this recommendation because we have seen so many things go so wrong for a bunch of people… if you are one of those unfortunate people, travel insurance is a lifesaver.

A tale of two hurricanes

We have had 2 hurricane scares this hurricane season, and both have left us fairly unscathed, much to our relief. When you own an island resort in the Caribbean, you don’t look forward to hurricane season.

Hurricane Richard Hits Belize

Hurricane Richard hit central Belize yesterday afternoon as a Category 1 storm, making landfall about 20 miles south of Belize City with 90 mph winds. The strongest winds were confined to a 30 mile radius from the storm’s center, so very few areas sustained damage according to preliminary reports. We are happy to report that everyone we know in Belize is fine. Our island base at Glover’s Reef
