Along with my husband and a few close friends, we embarked on a fabulous four day excursion to this private luxury island. We were loved up on and pampered by the Royal Belize team who all excelled in the area of hospitality.
Not surprisingly, it was usually more than enough to just to slow down and be still.
Time to think, or nap or read or simply take in the beauty that surrounded us.
Lingering around the dining table in the main palapa was an especially sweet time.

Besides enjoying the exquisitely prepared meals by Chef Manuel, there was uninterrupted time to just sit, hang out and catch up on life with each other.
At sunset one day, I had a turn at paddle boarding and think it might be my new favorite pastime.
There were times we went jet skiing, scouring the ocean floor for starfish and stingrays. And then one day, some of us went snorkeling at the second largest barrier reef in the world. We were blown away by our underwater adventure.
It was moments like this that happened continually on the island that simply took our breath away.
The week was indeed magical and was only enhanced by our island family ~ the Royal Belize team. We're so thankful for the time we got to share with our new friends.
Thank you for letting me share our island experience with you. I hope you can enjoy this paradise adventure too. For more info on Royal Belize go here. See you soon ~ have a lovely week!
