Drowned Cayes to Cucmber Marine

Belize City, Belize

Today, was a great sail. Good winds and for most of the day we could see Belize City in the distance. We arrived at Cucmber Marina by mid-afternoon. We are only about 5 or 6 Miles south of Belize City.

The Marina inside the highest wire link fence that I have ever seen and razor wire tops this! Armed guards walk the perimeter, but everyone is very friendly and the facility is wonderfully clean, with pools,zip lines, beaches, museum, restaurant and gift shop.

We immediately packed up our laundry and headed to the far side of the marina, where we found the office and showers, as well as, laundry. There was a lineup of the laundry, but between Donna and myself, we were able to get everything clean again!

While doing laundry, an Ontario motorhome arrived and after they were settled, they offered a ride to Belize City in the car they were towing. I was thankful that we found a more full service gorcery store. However, after we were already in the city, my new friends confessed that they did not have a guidebook or map. The streets we followed into the city, so while I shopped our driver, tried to get directions to get us back to the marina.

It was not an easy drive, but we eventually found ourselves back on the western highway, headed to the marina. It was a big relief to see that high fence again.

Dinner in the restaurant was a wonderful treat and the crew from Ruby Slippers also took advantage of this great setting!

The next morning we visited the museum Olde Belize and are very glad that we did. It really is a wonderful display!
