Snorkeling with the Manatees in Caye Caulker Belize

Manatee Madness

I was in my mid-twenties (just a few short years ago) when I received my open water scuba diving certification in Cozumel, Mexico. I was nick-named the "barracuda lady" on that trip because of the barracuda that was circling above me during the certification. I wasn't much interested in those big fish with big teeth. I wanted to see a Manatee.

Lost in Translation

My guests had arrived on the Island for a two week visit over the holidays. Each day was set in motion with long walks on the beach enjoying the sights, sounds and smells of the Caribbean. Visiting the beach bars on the 2 mile walk into town was ever-changing and always eventful. Exceptional food, drinks and engaging conversations with both locals and tourists was the norm.
