Every year someone from our company drives the 3000 miles down to Belize. This is the only way we can get all of our sport gear and other important items to Belize that we need on our island at Glover’s Reef. This is the third year that our Belize Adventure Week guide Neri Chi has done the drive for us. He is now a pro at it, and it’s not easy! You have 2 borders to deal with. We talked to him yesterday at the border, it took him over 8 hours to get from the US into Mexico. He is now driving somewhere in Mexico, heading south.
This year we sent down 4 paddleboards, 5 kayaks, 2 kiteboards, and 5 kites. We also sent down kayak paddles, generators, lifejackets, kitchen gear, tools, helmets, spray skirts, and new cushions for our beach chairs!
Once he makes it to Belize City (it takes 7 days) everything gets loaded onto our boat and taken out to the island.
