The first post of the New Year should be about singing the praises of Caye Casa. Instead I'm going to exclaim with great pride about The Phoenix Resort in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize which was just named the TripAdvisor's 2012 Number One Hotel in the World.
In the world.
Not just on Ambergris Caye, or in Belize, or in Latin America or in the Caribbean, or this hemisphere – the world – and it's just down the beach from here.
I'm so proud of the owners, the managers, and the staff.
We all can bask in their glory.
