Today we were able to sleep in a little bit longer than usual. We had a great breakfast at Pook's Hill and then were on our way to the Belize zoo. It was pretty awesome, we saw all different kinds of jungle cats, birds, tapirs, etc. We saw a jaguar and he actually did tricks on command! After the zoo we headed to the airport and boarded an island hopper which was a small plane that sat exactly the fourteen of us plus the pilot. Chris was lucky enough to sit co-pilot, we were all a little scared at the site of him sitting next to the controls ;) When we landed all we had to do was walk across the street to our hotel--very convenient! Our hotel is right on the beach equipped with a 24/7 pool. Tomorrow we are headed to shark/ray alley to snorkel and swim with sharks and sting rays--don't worry it's completely safe! After that we will probably spend out afternoon with a different kind of ray (on the beach!)
Oh and something VERY special happened at the hotel this afternoon but you'll have to check back tomorrow to find out :)
A very friendly tapir.
The bird is the word...
Everyone drives golf carts around here.
