19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A palapa in paradise

This palapa can be found on the NorthEast side of Ambergris Caye, Belize. It is located at the MargaritaVille Resort. On the day I took the photo, most of the coastline was riddled with sargassum but I was finally able to spot some clear water and I thought the palapa looked a bit like it might be found in Polynesia.
