Easter is a BIG holiday in Belize and everyone is making their Easter weekend plans. Many people from the mainland go coastal and come to Ambergris Caye for some beach time, traditionally on Easter weekend, beaches are people watching paradise, resorts are packed and golf cart rentals sold out. A few people told me yesterday they are stocking up and will be avoiding the crowds in town. I am still undecided for plans, will likely try and make it down to the beach at some point if I do not get sucked into relaxing at home which is a strong runner up 🙂
Dick and I stopped by to see Glen and he told us about his plans with family doing barbecue and going around town to check out all the action. While there I snapped a few pictures of Junior he is super cute and very smart for a little guy and knows how to wrap everyone around to his way of thinking.
For those that choose spending Easter on the mainland, this year marks the 85th annual Holy Saturday Cross Country Cycling Classic. It is Belize’s biggest cycling event and has been gaining international recognition. The popular annual race is organized by the Belize Cycling Association and is under the regulations of the International Cycling Union. To find out more about it go to – Giovanni Choto to defend Cross Country Title by the Guardian.
After Glen’s place we ran into Andrew and found out about another great Easter food option, barbecue will be happening Saturday 10am and Sunday from noon on at Banana Beach Resort. Sir Andrew will be doing ribs and sausage on the grill – yum. When you stop by and ask him about his cycling history he has some good stories to tell.
