Destination Belize: Attractions

"Do you ever paint your toes?" Gabriel stroked Julia's ankle, before sliding his thumb along her instep.

They were reclining in bed, she with her head on a pillow, he lying at her feet. The gentle rhythm of the rain hitting the roof of their hut filled the warm, humid air.

“Sometimes. But it’s so cold in my apartment, when I get out of the shower I just want to get dressed.”

Gabriel frowned, but continued his foot massage.

“We have to move you out of that apartment.”

She sighed. “We talked about this.”

“You can paint your toes at my place.” He gave her a searing look.

She wiggled her toes. “Why wait? You can paint my toes here.”

“No.” He placed her foot gently on the bed.

“No? For a man with a shoe fetish, that’s very strident.”

“I don’t have a shoe fetish. I simply admire women’s shoes because they’re sexy and they enhance a woman’s attractiveness. And I’m not into feet.”

“Oh, really, Professor?”

“Oh, really. So no toe painting, Miss Mitchell. Or toe sucking.” He winked and slid his hand up her calf.

“That’s disappointing,” she pouted. “What else can we do on a rainy afternoon?”

“I have a few ideas.”


In one swift movement he covered her and pressed their mouths together.

“You’re very intense,” Julia breathed.

He was over her, inside her, his sapphire eyes focused and unblinking.

“I’m with a beautiful woman, having fantastic sex.” He increased his pace and moved to her neck, nipping and sucking at the skin.

“I feel like we’re the only ones in the world.”

“Good,” he mumbled, kissing across her shoulder.

“You make me feel beautiful.”

In response, he licked her breast until she began to groan.

“I love you.”

Gabriel lifted his head. His eyes glittered, then grew determined.

“Nothing can separate us,” he growled, quickening his pace.

“Nothing can separate us because I love you.”

Without warning, Julia felt the pleasure overtake her and she moaned incoherently. Gabriel continued thrusting until he too, was overcome.

“Nothing,” he whispered, as he lay on top of her, their bodies covered with a thin sheen of perspiration. “Nothing.”

Gabriel's Rapture - Outtake
I need lots of water.
And air.
I need fresh air, preferably accompanied by a sea breeze.
So ... Umm ...
It looks as though Gabriel and Julia are still quite preoccupied with one another. I guess we better occupy our time in Belize with a tourist attraction ... or four.
Let's do ourselves a favor though, and begin our expedition in a place where we can cool ourselves off just a bit:
The Great Blue Hole

The Great Blue Hole is a large underwater sinkhole off the coast of Belize. It lies near the center of Lighthouse Reef, a small atoll 100 kilometres (62 mi) from the mainland of Belize City.

The hole is circular in shape, over 300 metres (984 ft.) across and 125 metres (410 ft.) deep. The world’s largest natural formation of its kind, the Great Blue Hole is part of the larger Barrier Reef Reserve System, a World Heritage Site of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

The Great Blue Hole is a world-class destination for recreational scuba divers attracted by the opportunity to dive in crystal-clear waters and see many species of marine life including tropical fish and spectacular coral formations.

The marine life in these areas include nurse sharks, giant groupers, and several types of reef sharks such as the Caribbean reef shark and the Blacktip shark. Dive excursions to the Great Blue Hole are full-day trips, that usually consist of one dive in the Blue Hole and two additional dives in nearby reefs.

And if you want an idea of what's underneath those beautiful waters, come on a virtual dive with me.  I promise it's worth your while and perfectly safe:

The nice thing about a virtual vacation is that we're not hampered by pesky, logistical things like distances and travel time.  Now that we've cooled off under the sea, let's head inland into the wilderness for a truly awe inspiring experience:


Situated high on the Vaca Plateau, 500 meters (1650 ft) above sea level, Caracol is the largest Maya site in Belize. It was once one of the largest ancient Maya cities, covering some 168 square kilometers (65 mi²). At its peak around 650 AD it had an estimated population of about 150,000, more than twice as many people as Belize City has today.

Ancient Caracol was occupied as early as 1200 BC. Its greatest period of construction occurred between 484 AD and 889 AD when over 40 monuments were built. The largest pyramid in Caracol is Canaa (Sky Place), at 43 meters (143 ft) it is still the tallest man-made structure in all of Belize.

Caracol was first reported by a native logger named Rosa Mai, who came across the site in 1937 while searching for hardwood trees.

As you may have guessed by now, Belize is a country for nature lovers. I'm not entirely certain I can picture The Professor backpacking into the jungle, although something tells me we'd all be in very capable hands if he led us inside one.  Either way, I'm sure he would have a certain appreciation for our next stop-over:

Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary

The Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary is one of the biggest, protected destinations in Belize. The reserve was founded in 1990 as the first wilderness sanctuary for the jaguar. Although roughly 60 of Belize’s 700 jaguars are believed to live in the sanctuary, your chances of seeing one are very slim. However, it’s an ideal environment for plant-spotting, bird viewing or seeking out other wildlife, and the trail system is the best developed in any of Belize’s protected areas.

Perhaps that's enough of the outdoors for the time being. Besides, what journey with The Professor would be complete without a trip to the museum?

Museum of Belize:

The Museum of Belize, located in downtown Belize City (Gabourel Lane), and on the grounds of the Central Bank of Belize, was the country’s first national museum, inaugurated in 2002. The Museum is housed in a refurbished British colonial prison built in 1857 and evacuated in 1993.

The Museum of Belize has retained its link with the past as each window of the structure signifies a cell that was built for one inmate. One cell has been restored to give visitors a glimpse of what prison life used to be like.

What used to be a dwelling for inmates is now where valued Belizean treasures are on exhibit. Both permanent and rotating collections are on display. Maya Masterpieces is a permanent museum collection that spans the ancient Maya civilization from 600 B.C. to A.D. 1500. Many artifacts displaying the legacy of ancient Maya achievements are exhibited. Rotating exhibits include “Insects of Belize” a colorful collection of butterflies, including the spectacular Blue Morpho, and “Stamps of Belize” which, features a stamp commemorating the Coronation of King George VI (1937).


"Without warning, she moved so she was straddling his lap and placed her hands on either side of his face, pulling him toward her. They kissed passionately for a moment before she took the mango and knife from his hand and placed a piece temptingly in her mouth.

He gave her a heated look before he brought their lips together, tugging the piece of fruit away with his teeth.

"Mmmmm," she hummed. "By the way, I don't think I ever saw the security video from our date at the museum."

She gently squeezed a piece of mango over his chest and began kissing and sucking across the droplet trail.

"Ah - ah --" Gabriel had trouble finding his words. "I've seen it. It's pretty hot."

"Really?" She sat back and languidly ate a piece of fruit in front of him, licking her fingers slowly.

"I'll show it to you later." He pulled her into a tight embrace, his hands sliding up and down her back. Then, when he couldn't stand it any longer, he tossed everything aside so he could lift her into his arms.

"Where are we going?" she asked, slightly alarmed.

"To the beach."

Gabriel's Rapture, Chapter 19


I have to tell you, I'm a bit relieved that Gabriel and Julia are leaving the hut for a little bit.

Next week will be our final one in Belize and no vacation is complete without browsing for souvenirs.  So while our favorite couple is busy enjoying the surf and sand, I'll be setting up shop.

I hope to see you there. I'm pretty sure you'll find something to take home with you.

Until then, take care,
