After 10 years of travel in Central America, I finally made it to Belize, my elusive last country. Here are my very first impressions after spending a few weeks there.

Lone Pine is the oldest and largest koala sanctuary in the world. Here you can learn all about these super cute animals and get a chance to take a picture with them or even hold them and have a cuddle session.
Lone Pine houses 130 koalas as well as kangaroos, wallabies, emus, dingoes, snakes and lots of other Australian wildlife. There are shows on during the day as well as some great hands-on experiences with the animals.
El Valle is a beautiful little mountain town located in the largest inhabited volcano crater in the world. It enjoys a lovely spring climate all year round. I spent hours wandering the streets of the town enjoying being surrounded by the amazing views and greenery, feeling very safe and at peace.
If you have a spare couple of days, I suggest a brief stop here, a great opportunity to relax or regenerate your travel mojo.
