When researching where to stay in Belize City, I struggled a little. All the major chains were really expensive and anything cheaper looked a bit touch and go or had bad reviews. As a solo female traveller, obviously my safety was a huge factor in deciding where to book. I narrowed it down to 2, one near the water taxi terminals and one that was more than double the price and 3 miles out of the city centre. I’m thankful I went with my gut and opted for the more expensive accommodation in this case!
One of my favourite travel experiences didn’t involve splashing out somewhere luxurious, in fact, it was somewhere the complete opposite. I stayed on a beach in a shelter with no walls and no electricity, yet I feel so lucky to have been able to experience it! This was my first experience of Central America!
