We headed back toward the resort, and after our scenic drive spent the rest of the day swimming.

That night was the start of Easter week, which is a very big deal in Belize, the resort really filled up and our wonderful dinner was supplemented with live entertainment. This group were local Garifuna drummers. They were very enjoyable to watch, each song they sang told a story.
The next day was supposed to be our last full day in Belize. So we decided to go into the nearby rainforest for a hike and try out the zipline. This activity was a big surprise, we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. On some of the platforms we were fairly high up and the kids were not even phased by it.

Tuesday was checkout day, it was a little sad to leave all the adventure and fun behind, but we were ready to go home after being gone eight days. Our flight wasn't scheduled to leave until 3:30 so we had most of the day to make the two hour drive back to Belize city so we stopped for a short hike to a cave. Mason really thought the cave was cool.
Finally we arrived at the airport and after waiting several hours learned that our flight had been cancelled, and we would not be able to fly home until tomorrow. So we got to spend another night in Belize. We checked in at the closest available hotel and spent the evening swimming in the pool.
The next day we arrived early only to find that there was a problem with our flight again. We took our tired kids up to the ticket counter and had them make sad eyes at the agent and pleaded with her to find us another flight home. Probably fearing a riot of weary travels she told us that if we didn't tell anyone she could book us on another airline. We were so relieved and grateful. So finally after much waiting we were on our way home.
It was a wonderful trip, but we were also so happy to finally be going home.
