The island of Laughing Bird Caye is about a 45 minute boat trip into the Caribbean sea from Placencia. It was established as a National Park in 1996 and is home to Pelicans, Osprey(whom I learned, mate for life) and a Belizian Park Ranger. This was one of the most beautiful natural sites that I saw on my recent trip. As a guest you are only allowed to take photographs and leave footprints you cannot take home any shells, coral(I was tempted) or fish for dinner!
I know, these would make an amazing mirror but I held myself back!
