Spicyland takes Bannister Island

Our second stop found us off the coast of Belize City.  This was one of the ports last time we went this route that gravely required a RE-DO.

We took a tender from the ship to Bannister Island, about a 20 minute ride.

There was a bar area and you could purchase lunch as part of the excursion – we opted for just drinks.

Bannister was such a secluded place, it felt like we were in the middle of nowhere.  It was grand.

After an afternoon in the sun (we could have stayed forever), we hopped back on the tender and returned to the Liberty.
