Best Belize Resorts: Long Caye is #1 resort on Glover’s Reef, again

Thanks to whoever wrote this great review on Trip Advisor, which returned us to the #1 ranked Belize resort on Glover’s Reef: I took the Belize Adventure Week trip in April and had an absolutely great time. Half of the trip is inland at the mountain region (Cayo District) and the other half is at Slickrock’s private Island. I traveled solo but never felt alone. Our group was small, just 4

Islands on the atoll: Nothing stays the same

Check out these two photos of the point of our island in Belize. We just came across an old shot taken from our third year on Long Caye, in 1999. This was the first year after Hurricane Mitch swept over the island with 30’ waves (but no wind), knocking down four of our buildings and carving 40’ off the front side of the island.

Belize Bird List: Long Caye at Glover’s Reef

We have a birding register in our dining hall. Sometimes months go by and no one enters anything in it, but we have quite an impressive record going back to 1999.
