Martinique

We arrived from different corners of the world to explore the lesser-traveled islands of the Caribbean, our flights touching down at Fort-de-France, the sleepy capital city of Martinique. On the drive to Le Cap Est Lagoon Resort, we admired the lush green vegetation covering impressive volcanic peaks.

In the evening, we gathered for a cocktail party and dinner with our fellow travelers, where...

Lamanai Ruins, Belize
March 30, 2014
Field Report

Saturday, February 8, 2014 - Belize City, Belize / Lamanai Ruins / Embark Island Sky: Our adventure began with a visit to the beautiful ancient Mayan site of Lamanai. Leaving our hotel early, we headed north toward Orange Walk where we climbed into powerful motorboats for the exciting 24-mile cruise up the New River.

Lamanai, which means ‘submerged crocodile,’ was first settled around 1500 B.C. Once home to over 20,000 people, the cleared and reconstructed...

Friday, March 8, 2013 - Belize City, Belize: For most of us arriving from colder climates, the weather provided a warm welcome to Belize at our hotel in the historic district, the Radisson Fort George and Marina Hotel. With an afternoon at leisure, some of us settled in and relaxed while other intrepid souls headed off to explore the town. As the sun set we assembled for drinks and hors d’oeuvres hosted by Zegrahm Expeditions and Stanford Travel/Study, and we met some...

Lamanai Ruins, Belize

Field Report

Sunday, January 3, 2010 - Belize City, Belize: Welcome to Belize! As we exited the airport and wound our way through the narrow streets of the older parts of Belize City, our first impression was that of moldering wooden shanties lining the streets. Upon closer inspection it becomes apparent that these merely reflect a tropical existence on a hurricane-prone coast.

When we reached our hotel in the historic district, the Radisson Fort George and Marina Hotel,...

Red-Footed Booby, Half Moon Cay, Belize

Blog Post

A cacophony of birds acted as our tropical wake-up call on our first morning and we prepared to set out for the fascinating Maya ruins of Lamanai. First we boarded motor coaches, then embarked speed boats for our river journey to the archaeological site, spotting northern jacana, a boat-billed heron, and a fork-tailed flycatcher along the way. We also passed a Mennonite community who were fishing together on the banks.

After a wonderful picnic lunch our guides took us on an in-depth...

Half Moon Cay, Belize

Blog Post

Yesterday we woke up to sunshine and blue skies off Belize’s Half Moon Caye, but because of windy conditions and waves that would make snorkeling and diving difficult, we decided to reposition Le Levant to the other side of the island. It was well worth it as it was calm and those who wanted to go ashore could. Half Moon Caye is beautiful with white sand beaches and green palm trees...your typical paradise island! Everyone...
