Bacalar – Birding, Day 3, Villas Ecotucan

Day 3 found us once again up at 5:30 and on the road by 6:30, this time we are heading to Villas Ecotucan to walk along a road above the lagoon and to take advantage of a botanic trail that is a part of the grounds of Ecotucan.

The access road between Villas Ecotucan and the houses below was a fabulous birding site.  Again, my camera just wasn’t up to the task.  Of course it had NOTHING to do with the photographer!

It was a fabulous morning!

After our morning of Birding we returned to our accomodations at Casitas Carolina and made a few reparations to ourselves and headed down to the Free Zone in Belize. I guess if you are close you should go just to say you’ve been, but in all honesty you really only ever need to do it once, if at all.

We then headed in to Chetumal to the Maya History Museum which is highly recommended.   A lovely museum.   Then we went to Sergio’s Italian restaurant and stuffed ourselves!   YUM!  A walk along the malecon and back to Carolina’s to sleep.
