After an uneventful flight through Dallas/Ft. Worth to Belize City, we arrived on time and sailed through customs. Bruno Kuppinger, our guide and the owner of Sun Creek Lodge, met us at the airport to escort us south to Punta Gorda, via Belmopan, the capital of Belize.
We arrived less than an hour ago and already everyone is settled into their rooms, and the sounds of the jungle wildlife orchestra are taking over. Oh wait, there are peels of laughter coming from the ladies’ cabanas
Tomorrow we will tour two famous Mayan ruins, Nim Li Punit and Lubaantun. Following that we will head over to the Tumil K’in Center for Learning to join in the cultural festivities of Maya day where over 1500 Maya will be celebrating. It will surely be an incredible cultural immersion experience and I cannot wait to watch the students as they take it all in.
Stayed tuned for pictures and updates!
