Learn How To Cook An Old School Belizean Breakfast
By The Bare Pantry Show:
I wanted to honor the request of some of the viewers to make a video completely in Creole/Kriol. I decided to do Fry Jacks or Fry Cakes, but the 1/2 recipe because this meal is the reason why I started the show. Fry Jacks can be eaten with any meal, but primarily it is a breakfast dish. Normally we have eggs with Dutch Cheese, Avocado (pears) and re-fried beans for an old school Belizean breakfast.
At Blue Marlin Beach Resort, we serve some of the best Belizean meals and drinks. Learn more about our Restaurant here: http://www.bluemarlinbeachresort.com/amenities/restaurant.
Why You Should Scuba Dive or Snorkel in South Water Caye
Scuba Diving in South Water Caye
Many people who visit Belize normally scuba dive or snorkel in Ambergris Caye, Caye Caulker or Placencia because those are the three destinations that are heavily marketed online and offline by the Belize Tourism Board, Guidebooks and Travel Magazines.
South Water Caye which is a 15 acre gem in the southern part of the country is also an ideal destination for snorkeling or scuba diving but doesn’t receive the amount of exposure from the organizations that I mention above thus we feel it is our job to write about it and tell the world how wonderful this island is for sea and reef adventures.
Another reason that we feel it is a perfect destination for scuba or snorkeling is because it is secluded and not crowded like Ambergris Caye or Placencia. In addition, South Water Caye is pristine and beautiful and just this year, it was voted as one of the top islands by Island’s Magazine.
If you are looking for spectacular scuba diving, snorkeling and salt water fishing then you might want to consider South Water Caye.
Here are some photos that illustrate the beauty of this gem:
