In early July we had the pleasure of having Stephen and Elizabeth Forman visit with us and become a member of our Chabil Mar family. From fishing and having our chef’s “Cook Their Catch”, to Monkey River excursions, to drinks at the pools and grill night on the beach and breakfast on their veranda overlooking the Caribbean, toes in the sand, and happy hour at our Kaleidoscope Bar, a combination of relaxation and adventure vacation was had.
Following their Belize vacation, Elizabeth posted the following review on Tripadvisor about her experience.
“We are travelers, and we love the beach. My husband is an activities guy while I am a relaxation type of vacationer, and we are both foodies this vacation is the best of everything! The grounds are beautiful staff is phenomenal and the food is amazing! It is one of the only places in the village with A/C so when it is humid and hot you will be so grateful for it! We loved every single one of the staff there. DeShaun the bartender makes THE BEST DRINKS I have ever had out of any tropical vacation we have ever been. If you do visit placencia you HAVE TO to the Monkey River Tour, most interesting and fun experience I have ever had. Percy Gordon is fabulous! I recommend this place to any and everyone, and we went in the “wet season”, that’s how good it was! By the way the weather was fabulous… it rained maybe once a day for an hour but then it cleared and was beautiful and it rained at night while we were asleep which was very nice!“
Thank you, Elizabeth and Stephen. We look forward to your next visit.
And we hope all of our readers enjoy the photos that you shared with us.

A visually impaired youth of Belize accomplishes the extraordinary . . . again. This time he is set to dive the Great Blue Hole. Meet Rowan Garel.
Fifteen year old Rowan Garel may be visually impaired, but his vision and passion more than compensate. He has scaled the highest peak in Belize, Mt. Victoria, and walked across the country, 92 miles. Now he is preparing to dive the Great Blue Hole.
The story of a young and heroic blind teenager has captured our attention and captivated the hearts of thousands across Belize, Larry France, the Marketing Manager of Chabil Mar, tells us. He talks about Rowan’s latest adventure.
“In March 2011, Rowan Garel became the first visually impaired person to make it to the summit of Victoria Peak and in April of 2012 he set out to walk across the country. I only heard of Rowan and his accomplishments in February of this year, but was immediately inspired. And now, Chabil Mar has decided to co-sponsor his Blue Hole adventure and I will have the thrill and privilege of diving the Blue Hole with Rowan.”
“I am not only in awe of this young man’s courage and fortitude, but when I spoke with him I gained even more respect for this extraordinary young man when he told me, “My motivation is not, Oh you’re Rowan, you climbed Victoria Peak, you walked across Belize. I’m not interested in that. What I’m interested in is raising funds and awareness for the only program in Belize that deals with blind or visually impaired people and they have a rehab program which is completely free of cost. Take that away and all the blind people, like myself, will just be behind with everything, there would be no one there to help them along and that is what motivates me.”
“And Rowan proceeded to tell me more about that organization, the Belize Council for the Visually Impaired, www.BCVI.org. I was struck with his story immediately.”
“So, we began our efforts to support Rowan in two ways, through sponsoring the Blue Hole Dive and creating a Belize vacation adventure package in conjunction with Amber Sunset Resort, in the Cayo district of Belize, from which a percentage of guests purchase will be donated to BCVI.”
“I am privileged to represent a resort in Belize that is so supportive of Rowan’s efforts. It is with great pride for me personally, that I get to assist in introducing Rowan Garel to the world, an exceptional youth of courage, determination and grit, who in his own words says, “I would really like to send the message that blind or visually impaired people can do anything that normal sighted people can.”
The Blue Hole Dive is set for July 14.
