Living in Belize

Grand Caribe Resort pool party part 2


I am finally making it back to the blog, warning you now this is not going to be a fast process. I keep getting sucked back to emails – over 200 car pile up there. So glad I did not bring my laptop with me to the party.

Here are a few pics to tide you over – loads more to come.

Before the cheap seats start making comments I realize that I have way to many hula hoop pictures. Reason being everyone had so much fun doing it that I wanted to get all of us in there.  Special thanks goes out to Emily for doing 2 fantastic hula hoop shows and congratulations to Gunter who hula hooped like a rock star and won a bottle of Caribbean Rum.

Had enough of back end tech troubles this morning – time to make a break for aquafit and shake it off. Before I forget Pedro’s Sports Bar is doing Curry night tomorrow – there will be a mix of spicy and mild, some of it cooked by Cindy and some flown in from Belize City. Call Pedro’s to get in on the head count so she knows how much to order – 226-3825.

Also happening – Saga Taste of Belize cook off.  Street party Friday September 16 6pm at El Fogon to celebrate through food the Independence of Belize. Bring your favorite dish to enter to win. Help vote on the dish that best celebrates the Independence Days of all Central America for $10.

I will be back later with breakfast and condo pictures – time for a taco style coffee break – floating in our pool.

Grand Caribe Resort is located about 2 miles north of  San Pedro town – totally worth crossing the bridge for. There are  eight individual buildings with 9 condominiums per building, each with a great view. You will also find 500 feet of beach front and three pools, including the largest pool in Belize. No brainier why I chose to have my party there. A little bird told me they are going to make Sundays pool party day, I will keep you updated on that.

We ended up in a 2 bedroom condominium with full kitchen, king size bed, big screen tvs,  jacuzzi tub and washer dryer.  What a treat!

Cowboy Doug invited us to join him for Breakfast at footprints bar and grill. Gunter showed up with a bread delivery and joined us for coffee. When Paul was getting ready to go home I decided to stay a little longer. so I loaded Paul, the shark a bunch of floaty rings and the lobster on Andy’s ATV and sent him on his way. [We had swapped Pedro’s cart with Cindy the night before so she could shuttle some people home]. I headed back to the condo for a nice long afternoon nap.

    Hi Folks, I’m drooling over these pictures! We will be there Oct 4th to 11th at Grande Caribe. These pictures are really putting us in the mood! I have a ton of questions!

    The Carbunkle says you may be harbouring a parasite. You are quite thin considering all the food shots. The fact that you have a pic of toilet is alarming. I think you should take a sample to the doc and ask for C&S for ova and parasites. Don’t take anything without my opinion as you are in a 3rd world nation regardless of what Sharon says and you might be prescribed mako root or pagan rituals.

    lol Mystery so did a few others but the ended up on the cutting room floor.

    speaking of butt shots………Phil provided you a nice one!

  9. tacogirl September 15, 2011

    I am not the swimsuit police Al, guessing Gunter wore it because he was going to a pool party – as to why he bought that particular suit who knows. The significance to my top not being same print as bottom [it matches fine] I was sent bottom only. Before you say anything about topless option, you know I only post butt shots on here 🙂 I have to go now my lobster pizza is getting cold and your welcome.

    Will do Maureen, they are still moving but have to get past a few hiccups.

  11. al salter September 15, 2011

    There is a pic of some odd dude wearing a Japanese Imperial (WWII) battle flag swimsuit. Why is that? Furthermore the bottom of your bikini does not match the top. Is there some significance to that? Thank you.

    I dare you to live on $500 a month anywhere Al, you would have to give up steak and Shiraz. I hope you tipped well and covered your mouth with duct tape while you were rating brothels of Corozal 🙂 I do not have a drivers license so me driving an MRAP in Belize city is illegal, my feel work well there though. I know where to buy contraband beer not going to bust the guys who are helping the odd person enjoy a Modelo or 2 by blogging it. If potential retirees want to know they can find out by word of mouth just like the rest of us did. I am backlogged it will be a while before Video of Emily’s show makes it to the net. Making hoops and poker both well searched on Google, especially with Bob making the November 9 and ESPN on their way to Belize. It would be bad business to ignore such things when doing my blog SEO 🙂 Thanks for the compliment on bikini shots – they worth another donation to SAGA? 🙂

    Great pics Laurie, looks like a great time and I LOVE the Lobster Lounge! Glad to see Madame is still there, are they still moving? Tell her I say “Hi” Hugs to you all!

  14. al salter September 15, 2011

    Well lets see….the first obvious problem is that you don’t live in Belize you live on San Pedro (yuk, yuk). Topics: The Brothels of Corozal (there are 9 that I have personally rated). How to live in Belize on 500$/ month.(excluding San Pedro) The + and -‘s of life in each district of Belize. ( excluding Ambergris Caye). Why you should only drive to Belize City in an MRAP (google it). Where in an SUV can you smuggle steak and mushrooms over the border. Where to buy contraband beer and gas. These are what potential retirees need to know. Not how to make hoops and where the next poker tournament is. Just food for thought. Always glad to help Laurie. Nice bikini shots though. Got a video? 🙂

    I will match that with a review of my last 17 emails from readers and say 97% are from serious travel minded people appreciating the insight my blog has given them regarding Belize and living here. You just want more from Sharon so you can put your debating pants on 🙂 What’s your list?

  16. al salter September 15, 2011

    Of a review of 17 articles on TacoGirl close to 50% are party/food oriented. This might lead people to conclude you are a shameless hedonist. More entries like Sharon’s and those that appeal to serious intellectuals might increase readership. I can send you a list of topics to consider.:)

  18. Carbunkle Trumpet September 14, 2011

    Ok you officially Suck! How is it that you can eat like you have a tapeworm and look that good! Can you send over some of that water or hula-hoop as I haven’t seen my shoes in over 3 months of being on the SpaghettiO diet!
    Happy Birthday Taco and here is to seeing you in the spring!
