The pictures today are from the 2 excursions that we did!
The first trip was to go and see some Mayan ruins, go ziplining, and do a cave float. It was really rainy the day before we went, and it drizzled on an off all day during our tour. Because of the rain we weren't able to go and see the ruins we were supposed to see (Xunantunich), the river was to high to get across on the little ferry. Luckily we were able to go and see the Cahal Pech runins instead. Not quite as spectacular, but we got to actually go inside these ones which was really cool. We had the most awesome tour guide- he called himself Brown Sugar, and he is studying the history of the Mayan people, so we got so much information!

|P and I- San Ignacio is the city in the background|
The ziplining was so awesome, the jungle is so dense and beautiful! And we got to see monkeys which was awesome!! I didn't bring my camera because I didn't trust myself not to drop it. P took lots though, so I will try to post some of those once she sends them to me!
Because of all of the rain we didn't get to do the cave floating part of the tour either :( safety first I guess, but it was a little disappointing!
On our second to last day the sun finally came out, so we decided to take advantage of it and go on a snorkeling excursion. We got to go to three different spots on the reef- Hol Chan Marine Park, Shark Ray Alley, and Coral Gardens. Snorkeling is officially my new favorite thing! The pictures definitely don't do it justice. It was just like being in Finding Nemo!!
We will definitely go back one day- I think that Belize is now my #1 favorite vacation destination!!
