  • Casita Buena Vista

    "Wofgang along with Eldon, Merta, Cookie and Tiger have perfected the art of the vacation rental. It was by far the most organized, professional, yet personal experience we have had over many countries. They all exist to make sure you have the best time in San Pedro and nothing is too much to ask of them. Juice in the fridge and laundry service are great touches. The island info provided by Wolfgang before arrival is better than any travel book. Casita is huge,property is beautiful, however was surprised that our casita did not have any ocean view (is behind other building) and you cannot get out to the reef from beach. There is no kayak anymore and no bathroom door in the casita FYI. All in all one of the best spots on Ambergris to stay and will return for sure."

  • Magical Vacation Rental

    "We stayed at the Main Stay for a week, during the holidays. My boyfriend and I really found it romantic, magical and so accommodating. The staff is remarkable; everyone really makes you feel safe and really allows you to have a very relaxing stay. We had the beach all to ourselves and when shared with the other visitors, everyone was so welcoming & amazing. It still felt exclusive & private. We felt like we were with family on a grandeurs vacation. We cooked every morning on the outdoor grill found on the wrap around porch while listening to the sounds of the birds & drinking fresh coconuts, right of the tree. This place truly is very magical. For the price, it’s incredible how special, private, peaceful, and grand it is. There is a very expensive spa up the road that charges a ridiculous amount of money, but they do not have a private magical beach as we did, with inclusive use of canoes, kayaks & bikes. The Main Stay is “the” place to stay when heading for Belize. It is simple, and absolutely perfect, just as any vacation should be. We cannot wait to plan our next trip!"

  • Had a great time, lots to do and lots of area to relax

    "Just spent a week at Diamond Reef, and we had a great time. The highlight was definitely being able to paddle out to Mexico rocks and snorkel each morning before the tour operators showed up. We had the place to ourselves every time. Turns out while we were there the city or government made some changes to huge swath's of land and ocean around ambergris caye that may require daily fees, and Mexico rocks was one of those areas. Regardless, we really had a great time at this spot and Alvin, Rosa and their daughter Alyssa went out of their way to make us feel welcome and attend to our needs. We had a very early morning departure, 5:30 AM and when I woke up Alvin was already at the bottom of the stairs with a wheel barrow to take our luggage out to the ferry. The guy is one of the most patient relaxed folk I've met in a long time. Alvin also caught on very quick that we enjoyed fishing from the pier every night and he promptly went out and netted us some sardines to fish with that week. Way to go Alvin! Fresh snapper anyone?! We plan on returning asap."

  • After 15 Years Away, We Returned

    "My husband and I sold our condo in San Pedro 15 years ago and wanted to return one more time. Our son and his wife joined us. San Pedro has grown and changed. Renting Casa de Paradiso was a good decision for us. It was close enough to San Pedro town for conveniences (groceries, restaurants) and far enough away to be out of the main traffic areas. The Palapa Bar next door provided a convenient pick up spot for the water ferry and fishing guides. The golf cart rented from the caretaker provided easy and fun access to all parts of the island. The caretaker Orlando solved any problems and questions we had willingly and quickly. The house is very comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. The pool was delightful for a mid-afternoon cool-down and social gathering. We prefer renting VRBO's because of the personal knowledgeable interactions and this one was no exception. San Pedro had changed from 15 years ago and Casa de Paradiso is one of the good changes. We would definitely recommend it. Sue and Bob"

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.
