With over 31 years of experience, Tropic Air, one of the leading airlines in Belize, flies daily to 10 destinations which include flying to Central America into Flores, Peten in Guatemala and Guatemala City.

Belize is a rich Central American and Caribbean country that has a lot to offer to its visitors and people. Visitors can easily enjoy a trip into the past by discovering the underworld water caverns, adventure and view Belize’s lush rainforest and sample the typical Belizean flavors all in one place. A trip to Caves Branch Outpost at Nohoch Che’en National Park allows you to enjoy a little bit of what Belize has to offer, all in one day. Discovery Expeditions takes eager travelers from San Pedro via the Reef Rocket speedboat on a 45 minute drive to Belize City.

With our destination located some 37 miles west of the city, the journey on the bus wiggles its way through several villages until it reaches the far end of Frank Eddie Village. Our able and knowledgeable tour guide briefs us on the activities for the day. First we get our comfortable footgear and head to the waiting area where we are all introduced to the managers of Cave Branch Outpost and Canopy Café. A small trek along the green thick rainforest brings us to the new zip lining area. Even though under construction, it is plain to see that the coming attraction will be exhilarating. High above us workers are setting up platforms on trees, thick cables run through the canopy of trees, and you can almost expect Tarzan to come sailing out of the treetops. But, our actual plan for the day is cave tubing through some of the most mysterious and historic cave systems in Belize.

The Palm Restaurant & Martini Bar October 16, 2009

    While discovering the Caribbean waters and the exotic jungles of Belize one can easily be immersed in the grandeur of our country. There is no doubt that part of the intrigue of visiting a new place is experiencing the local cuisine and no matter how much you have explored the area you cannot truly appreciate the flavor of the culture until you have experienced the taste of Belize. As obvious as that may sound, you may find it easier said than done, especially at resort restaurants that are catering to American guests. With nothing but good intentions, many menus are dedicated to American cuisine in an effort to maintain the guest comfort level but inadvertently miss incorporating local dishes.

    For Hans Wagenhaus, the new General Manager at The Palms Restaurant at Reef Village, offering local, as well as Central American dishes, is a responsibility to the guests that he takes very seriously. Passionately committed to introducing the guests to the wonders of Belizean meals, the new menu at The Palms does just that with every course served from breakfast through dessert while maintaining a variety of familiar “comfort foods”, some with a Caribbean twist.
