Exploring the unique cuisine (and caves!) of Belize at Ka’ana

By Krista,

Xunantunich ruins in the Cayo District of Belize

What seems like ages ago, I traveled to Western Belize to report on the cuisine, caves, and culture of the region for Wandermelon.com. We hiked through ruins, spelunked in ancient burial sites, rode across local farms, and ate (and ate and ate!) to get a sense of the unique fusion that exists in the Cayo district.  Here’s the full story, and a couple shots to whet your whistle.
