The first day of our official honeymoon, Brian and I decided to make the trek down into Belize to hang out on the picturesque island of Caye Caulker. It is a four hour bus ride from Playa del Carmen to the border of Mexico/Belize. We upgraded buses and took a primera clase ADO bus for about $40 dollars per person. I'm pretty sure the "upgrade" actually involves more air-conditioning, so that you feel as if you are sitting in a fridge for four hours, in tank tops and shorts no less.
Once we reached Chetumal (still in Mexico), we booked a high-speed ferry from Chetumal to Ambergis Caye in Belize and then on to Caye Caulker. This costs around $40 or so per person as well, so it definitely isn't cheap to get to the islands, but it is well worth it!
After a four hour bus ride and another two hours on a ferry, we finally reached Belize! We arrived a few days before Belizian Independence Day and were lucky to snag a one bedroom apartment close to the spit on Caye Caulker. The hotel, Sea Dreams, is more like an 8 room bed and breakfast. Each morning we were there, a local Belizian woman named Ada cooked us a fabulous breakfast, which we ate on the roof of Sea Dreams while overlooking the water.
