 Randy Reinink writes us from a snowy and cold Afghanistan:
 Greetings from Bagram, Afghanistan where we read The
 San Pedro Sun in the snow! I am pictured with several of my
 Afghan bodyguards. I was in Belize just two weeks ago. Seems
 like a life-time. I’m ready to go back. Do you have my rum
 punch ready??

we’d done in a while. The responsible and attentive crew made
sure we were taken care of every minute of our jaunt.
    Once onboard, the amiable staff invites you to take off your
shoes and kick back into relaxation mode. Worries are cast aside
and left on the dock, now there is only one item on the agenda –
enjoyment. Having put their energy and personal touch to the
cruise package, Sirena Azul ensures that you take home as many
memories as possible. A fun experience these cruises are topped
with an unforgettable one on one time with nature.
    Always having thought that to properly enjoy a delightful sun-
set onboard a sailboat, traveling to other destinations could pro-
vide more. However, our own backyard has something incompa-
rable to other destinations. The blue, azure skies, the turquoise,
white foamy waters, the swaying green palm trees, a scenery en-
vied by all.
    Once you have found the ideal
spot to settle down – the bow of
the boat where the Caribbean
breezes caress your face or stern
side, maybe on the comfortable
seating area, your choice will be
immediately complimented with a
thirst quenching drink. Be it a de-
lightful, sweet Panty Ripper deli-
ciously made with a blend of
Belize’s coconut rum and pine-
apple juice or, better yet, try the
country’s brew – Belikin Beer. The
tasty and delicious cocktails blend
with the relaxing and enjoyable
Caribbean music and place you

you are in the groove as you sit

view of San Pedro Town as the
sun seeks to hide behind the clouds

cocktail are servings of spicy, de-

splash of pepper and crispy corn
tortilla chips. But for those sea-

                                               What better way to cruise than with food, drink, music and nature at its best?
                                               the island, you can’t help but bask in the view ahead, the blue skies
                                               and clusters of fluffy white clouds displaying nature at its best. But
                                               as the evening sets in, golden hues overtake the west, then slowly
                                               but progressively, the sun starts making its descent. The reflection
                                               of the bright sunrays spread over the sea, displaying an array of
                                               colors that words are not enough to describe, making the sunset
                                               cruise stand apart from any other. Then finally when the sun takes a
                                               final dip for the day, it is amazing to see the beautiful brightly lit
                                               skies as an orange sun gives off it’s final, resplendent display before
                                               the clouds and stars eventually take control of the evening skies.
