It’s not often that my Mom goes out of her way to brag about someone but I had been hearing about Edgar for weeks before going to Placencia for the holidays. That being said, it’s the first thing that we did when I got back on the peninsula.

After a few nights out and an adventure on The Island Time Getaway, I had the honor to sit down with the Trainer, Coach, Physique Champion, Former Boxing Champ, and owner of Evolution Beach Gym at his gym in Placencia, Belize. We discussed the life of a Belizean, his movement around Latin America, Boxing Career, Physique Competitions, and much more.

For our second straight Placencia Holiday, we decided to head out with Captain Terrell of Blue Water Sailing. We weren’t sure what day we would be able to go out because of the inclement weather but when the Captain called us early on the 25th with confidence that it would blow over, we packed up and headed towards the pier. (The skies didn’t agree but we trusted Terrell’s experience on the water) After a great day with these guys last week, we knew that even an hour on the dock would be a good time.

Edgar is that you?

The steady wind from the morning’s weather helped pull the sail along quite well.

On the afternoon of December 16, we loaded up and went just north of the peninsula to Mayan Sky Canopy Tour for a waterfall adventure with friends. The park is much closer than our previously visited Attraction (Bocawina National Park) and does not require near as much hiking to get to the falls so we reccomend this one for anyone who wants the fun of the waterfalls without hiking so far. [Only 30 minutes from Placencia]

Captain Hank, Terrell, and Connor of Blue Water Sailing picked us up for a morning of sailing on December 14th, the result was a tan, great photos, and better memories. Thank you to Edgar and Melanie of Evolution Beach Gym (Allie too!), Jim and Amanda of Amik Kil Ha’, the crew, and my wonderful parents for a great morning on the water.
