  • Family and Friends Vacation

    "Six of us adults stayed at this wonderful house for a week. Due to the availability of a boat, boat captain and Kayaks we were able to fish, snorkle, go into town and do just about any activity we wanted. Snorkling at Shark Ray alley was just one of the highlights of our trip and is not to be missed. We were provided three wonderful meals per day much better than you will get in resturants. The entire staff was friendly and went out of their way to accomodate our needs. We will be staying here again in the near future."

  • Excellent Trip

    "What a place!!! Great for diving, long walks on the beach, visit to local restaurants, or just relaxing by the pool. The caretakers (Victor, Naomi and family) were very helpful and friendly. We'll be back."

  • Just what the doctor ordered!

    "This is one very special place! We really enjoyed our stay at the Purple House on Caye Caulker and especially appreciated the Sullivan's hospitality. These folks have a real talent for helping you feel right at home. Very attractive, very comfortable, quiet, just enough without going overboard. Great local food, culture and warm water adventures. It should go without saying but the island and it's people are a treasure."

  • Amazing! Best vacation ever says my son :)

    "Arriving via Water Taxi in San Pedro we were surprised to find out that Felix and Anna had arranged taxi's to pick us up at the dock. I had not previously discussed my arrival plans, but was very happy when the Taxi drivers met us as soon as we stepped off the boat, handled our luggage and took us to the Villa. The villa is as advertised, spacious, and easily accommodated the 12 people in our party. The beds were very comfortable with nice linens. The AC in each room worked very well to keep us cool at night and sleeping well. We already miss the good sleep we got in those comfy rooms!! The kitchens were stocked prior to us arriving with the items we requested the week prior. We had plenty of adult beverages, breakfast and lunch items...plus snacks. There was never any shortage of cooking utensils, pans or dishware for the 12 of us. The pool was cleaned and sand was raked daily. The staff is always available when you need them, but not in the way when you are relaxing. Every request is met with smile and a sense of urgency. I never felt like I was asking for a favor or my request was over the top. Make sure you get golf carts for trips into town. They will have them ready for you at the house when you arrive. We often drove to town for dinner or a night out. Make sure you eat at Lone Star Grill and Cantina which is just down the street from the Villa. Exceptional food and service. Say hi to the owners Marc and Leanne for us!! Snorkeling on the reef just minutes from the house was great (Hol Chan, Shark Ray Alley, Mexico Rocks). We saw plenty of fish, turtles, nurse sharks, sting rays, spotted eagle rays, and eel's. It was a snorkelers dream!! ....Amazing!! We also had a great time with our trip to the Lamanai Ruins. We had the most amazing time and even prior to leaving my family had already proclaimed this vacation as the best one we had ever taken. Pat and Natalie(owners).....we are already planning a trip back!!"

Belize Travel Tips

Looking for a getaway to unplug, reconnect and relax under the warmth of the sun? You'll find it all in Belize. This Caribbean locale is idyllic for all, from adventure seekers to nature lovers and everyone in between.

Whether you're looking to explore Mayan ruins and hike along rigorous trails or you can't wait to visit the local museums and experience traditional flavors each time you dine, Belize is sure to be a vacation spot you won't soon forget.

With its amazing, warm climate, you'll want to spend as much time outdoors as you can, and Belize features a host of national parks and wildlife sanctuaries to explore. You can see more than 500 species of birds as well as monkeys, crocodiles, lizards and other native creatures. There's also plenty of space to hike or bike and beaches to relax on. Belize is also an excellent spot to learn about history, as it was home to one of the world's most mysterious civilizations - the Mayans.

Things to Do in Belize

- Belize Barrier Reef: Explore the world under the sea at the Belize Barrier Reef, which is the second longest in the world. It's home to more than 100 types of coral and 500 species of fish, making it a huge attraction in Belize. Plan a snorkeling adventure to swim through the gloriously turquoise waters as you marvel at the cornucopia of life below the surface. As you get deeper, you can even check out underwater caves and walls, as well as the famous Blue Hole. On the surface, you can take out a kayak and paddle around from one islet to another, try windsurfing or simply lounge in the sound, listening to the relaxing sounds of the water.

- Altun Ha: Altun Ha is the most popular Mayan ruin to visit and easily accessible from Belize City. Here you'll find temples all around that provide plenty of information on the history of the Mayan culture. For 25 square miles, you'll be surrounded by forests and vegetation as you explore. In the Temple of the Masonry Altars, which is the largest, you'll find a jade replica of a Mayan sun god. This temple was used for religious rites and activities, and there's evidence of bloodletting and ceremonial sacrifices. The Temple of the Green Tomb is known for being a place where a Mayan priest-king made his funeral chamber, and it was found filled with treasures and offerings. It's called the green tomb because 300 jade pieces were discovered there.

- Museum of Belize: History buffs will love a visit to the Museum of Belize, which collects, preserves and displays objects with artistic, historical and scientific interest. You'll have the chance to see Belize's earliest stamp depicting Queen Victoria from 1937, a preserved jail cell and inmate, a Buenavista vase depicting the mythical Mayan hero twins doing a victory dance over the Lords of Xibalba and much more about the past and culture of the area.

- Xunantunich: This ancient archeological site is situated atop a ridge over the Mopan River. Xunantunich, which means stone woman in the Mayan language, is a major center for ceremonies that you can tour. It's accessible by ferry daily, and its name refers to a ghost woman many people have claimed to see who continues to haunt. She's said to be dressed all in white, but her most noticeable feature are her fire-red, glowing eyes. She's been known to appear in front of El Castillo, climbs the impressive stone staircase, then disappears into a wall. Take a tour here to see her for yourself!

Dining in Belize

- Riverside Tavern: One of Belize's most popular dining locations is Riverside Tavern, where you can enjoy a meal both indoors and outdoors. Steaks are a specialty here, but there ribs are just as tasty. For something a little lighter try the seared tuna, coconut or jerk shrimp, or grilled snapper. It's a laid-back sort of place, but after dark, shorts, sleeveless shirts and sandals are discouraged. So, put on your nicer dinner attire and treat yourself to a lovely meal overlooking Haulover Creek.

- Bird's Isle: Another favorite dining destination in Belize is Bird's Isle in Belize City. Step inside and it will feel like an oasis that locals and visitors alike enjoy. Sip on fresh-squeezed juice in the morning or a cold beer later in the day as you sample a stellar burger or snacks like conch fritters. Thursday nights there's karaoke, so warm up those vocal chords and get ready to belt out your favorite tune. Some nights there's also live music, so wear your dancing shoes just in case.
