From Mysterious Vacation Island to Super-Social Beach-Town Home

It was late December 2010, and I still hadn’t made vacation plans. I sat down at the computer, and with one Google search, my whole life changed. I entered a search for “warm places to go in January,” and San Pedro, Belize popped up in the top 10. If I’m being honest, I didn’t even know where Belize was. However, I was too tired to do any follow-up, so for the first time in my type-A life, I booked a trip without thoroughly researching it.
