Great Literature for a Belize Trip

If you're looking for a great book to read on a vacation down to Belize, check out The Mosquito Coast, by Paul Theroux.  The novel is about a crazed American man who moves his family to Central America to hack a life out of the jungle.

The book was adapted into a 1986 movie starring Harrison Ford which is also worth checking out once you've finished the book.  The movie was entirely shot in Belize and practically the entire country was in someway directly or indirectly involved in the production.  To this day Harrison Ford says that its his favorite of the movies he's been in.


About This Blog

This blog is dedicated to Belize and Central America from the Yucatan peninsula to the edge of the Mosquito Coast in Honduras. After spending a lot of time in Belize I've picked up on a lot of info that isn't in the guidebooks and this blog is my chance to record it.

After travelling extensively, I've come to realize that Belize really is a country like no other. Its a place with geographic diversity from the coral reefs to the Mayan mountains, and cultural diversity from the ancient mayans to the garifuna. All it takes is one ride along the bumpy dirt road on an old school bus in Belize to really appreciate the fact that you are in a place like no other.
