There is nowhere like Belize â€” one of the smallest, most diverse, friendliest countries in the world! I’m currently researching the 9th edition of Moon Belize, covering the entire Cayo highlands, Belize City, and Ambergris Caye. Being a guidebook writer allows me to return to this place and go deeper and deeper â€” I spend all day walking, taking notes, and talking to new and old friends. It’s exhausting, but I am not complaining. Pictured above, another old friend: Tony the boa at the Belize Zoo.
