Last Night I Dreamt of San Pedro

Okay, just one more Belize post. I promise.

We have {yet another} pending snowstorm that is supposed to hit in t-minus four hours. Heaven help us.

So tonight, I'm snuggling in bed and going to be dreaming of San Pedro.

Fun fact, San Pedro on Ambergris Caye is the town that inspired the Madonna song La Isla Bonita. Sadly, most of the days I ventured into the charming town during the daytime it was a little overcast and we had those little pop up rain showers that grace the tropics each day. However, San Pedro was a blast at night and had lots of great restaurants and bars that were unforgettable. 

One thing I really loved about the island was that commercialism was hardly present. No chain restaurants, hotels or tourist traps. People on the island genuinely want to give you a special experience, so the family matriarchs were the ones cooking the local cuisine, if you wanted to go diving or snorkeling, all the dive shops were run by people who had lived their entire lives on the island. It was a breath a fresh air among so many beautiful paradises turned tourist trap.

So feel free to dream away of this little, hidden Central American treasure.
