The Belize District has several villages on the Old Northern Highway that are a short hour-drive outside of Belize City. Some smaller than others, but each with its own character.
One of the more scenic ones is Maskall Village, and it’s also where the Maruba Resort Jungle Spa is located, my hotel for the next couple of days. I saw these kids while driving by yesterday afternoon and stopped to take a peek and talk to them. They were cooling off on a hot afternoon, swimming in fresh river water. I so wished I could have joined them!
