Cayos Cuchinos is a small group of islands and keys just off the coast of Atlántida, the state where I have been staying. It is also a national park, and many have described it as the most beautiful place they have ever seen. I spent a day there snorkeling, hiking in search of the pink boa constrictor (only found here), and eating on a tiny island packed with huts that the local Garifuna people call home. The views were breathtaking.
Unfortunately, I could not bring my good camera with me since the boat ride over can get pretty wet, but it wasn’t hard to get some good shots with my cheap camera phone.

What a gorgeous place. I may need to add it to the travel list! I stayed in a Garifuna village a couple of times when I was in Belize. You look happy!

Thank you. I frequently heard from other volunteers what great pictures my camera took. I reminded them that person behind the lens had something to do with it!

Great photos! You should send your photos and stories to National Geographic Traveler they would make a wonderful article.

Thanks, Diane. There’s a lot of competition out there. The hardest part for me is organizing and uploading the photos. I need an assistant!

It’s always a pleasure (except when the wi-fi isn’t cooperating)!

Incredible water! Yikes!! I don’t think I could hold even a baby boa!!

I was surprised no one else in my group did. When in Rome . . .

You lost me with the pink boa…you are far braver than I!! Camera phone did an incredible job capturing the sites!

How could I not hold it? There are some things I won’t do (like bungee jumping), but holding a boa was not that hard.
