El Diablo Maiden Voyage

If you have been following Facebook you already know that it was Jake “from State Farm” that took the maiden voyage on El Diablo.

If this is news to you than I will back track and fill you in a bit. El Diablo is the new water slide at Caribbean Villas Hotel. The new 3 story fun ride was built on the island with scheduled opening this past Sunday and local expat Jake “from State Farm” paid $500 to be the first one to ride the slide (that came with a lifetime membership).

On Sunday Jake went dressed to slide in a cape, head band and Belizean color themed beads.  Caribbean Villas had their first aid kit on hand and thankfully it was not needed. A big crowd came for the 9:30 am launch and true to Belizean form it was slightly delayed but with good reason – speakers were needed to blast the final countdown song for Jake’s slide ride. Aside from the dock being crowded, there were 2 boats waiting to watch him take the inaugural ride.  People took pics from all angles and there are 3 videos below from 3 different views, air, boat and Jake 🙂

Ride the slide

To ride El Diablo water slide – cost is $5 per ride or $25 for a day pass. Hours of operation are from 10:00 am until dusk. There is an attendant on hand for safety purposes. Caribbean Villas is planning to send their slide attendant for first aid and CPR in November.
