Tripadvisor has informed me that I have only traveled 6% of the world. With 94% to go, it could be considered profligate to re-visit any one destination. With that in mind, we have attempted to broaden our travel horizons but always end up comparing our stay with Belize, Ambergris Caye and in particular, the Phoenix Resort.
Most destinations have at least one flaw. It may be too inaccessible, dangerous, expensive, touristy or exploitative. That flaw tends to loom over and color an otherwise acceptable holiday. I can say without reservation that the Phoenix and its surrounds have none of these.
The real strength of the Phoenix is that it is a fine and caring establishment located in a simple and non-touristy small town surrounded by the beauty of its beaches, culture and people. Here is a picture of some of that beauty.
