This is my friend, Lazaro Martinez, out on a limb, high above the Macal River Gorge and an unnamed waterfall in western Belize. This area of the country, known as “Cayo,” gets a lot less press than Belize’s famous reef and Caribbean cayes. Cayo is one of my favorite parts of the country, where Laz runs the Martz Farm Hideaway Camp, one of the many utterly unique spots which I’ll be featuring in a fun, Belize-casual slide show this week at:

I’ll also be signing copies of my award-winning guidebook, Moon Belize, an updated edition of which was released last fall by Avalon Travel Publishing.
Here’s my little tribute to Belize, to get you ready, and here’s a short Q&A I did about Belize. In addition to showing pictures, singing a few songs, and talking about my travels in Belize, I’ll answer your questions about planning/booking your trip and figuring out what to do once you’re thereâ€”including volunteer, research, and study programs in Belize.
