Last weekend, I posted a photo to my Facebook page of a Wadadli beer on Turner’s Beach during our first visit to Antigua. I asked the people who had liked the page to post pics of themselves enjoying their favorite beverages on the beach and promised to feature the image with the most “likes” in an article. We ended up having four people tie with the most likes and three of them, along with the stories behind the pictures, are featured below.
Sharon Puckett Verderber – Tropical Martini at Fenix Lounge on Isla Mujeres
“Isla (Mujeres) was amazing!! You know how you see pics of amazingly blue water and wonder if it’s real … it is!!! Everyone is so friendly. Tasty food and drinks, plenty to see and do or you can do nothing but lay on the beach all day. Fenix was great, offering free use of their beach beds with food/drink purchase. Live music, right on one of the best spots for calm water snorkeling. Isla is relaxing calm, and peaceful. Main modes of transportation are golf carts, scooters or taxis but you can walk pretty much anywhere.”
Marylou Hansen – A Piton on an island known for them
“I visited via CCL so we were in Castries. I took an excursion to see the Pitons then relaxed at a little bar by the ocean in port and enjoyed a local beer (well 2.. buy 2 get “free” wifi) … beautiful island, lush and green.”
Kristen Jackson – A Belikin on Ambergris
“It was taken a few weeks ago – May 30 to be exact – on our trip to San Pedro. We flew from Charlotte to Belize City and we arrived in BZE with no luggage (including my husband’s dive gear) other than our carry-on and no word on where it was or when we might receive it. So we had a light flight over to Ambergris Caye. Upon landing, we walked over to our hotel, checked in, dropped our carry-on in our room and hit the beach “road” to find a drink! The photo is of my first Belikin…the first of of many that week. Luggage finally arrived on Tuesday.”
Want to be featured on the blog? Of course you do! Go to the Facebook page each Saturday or Sunday and look for the relevant post regarding these weekly articles. If your image gets the most “likes,” you’ll get featured in your very own article (you might have to share if there’s a tie) and your friends will be super impressed. I promise.

Hi, I am planning a trip to Ambergris but I am confused if going there or Isla Mujeres.
Would you recommend a trip to Ambergris with a 10 year old. I think both islands are pretty similar but pretty sure Isla is more developed.
Any suggestion is kindly appreciated.

Tiffany, a lot of that depends on what you like to do. Isla Mujeres is more developed than Ambergris Caye but both islands are still pretty laid back. Ambergris is known for its diving while Isla Mujeres would have better beaches (Playa Norte is one of the best beaches I’ve been on). If you want to send me an email at info (at) beachbarbums (dot) com, I can discuss it more with you. Thanks for reaching out!
