  • fantastic! great family residence!

    "wow! did this place ever impress! the residence was perfect in every way. we had our 2 children with us, ages 9 and 2, and everything was more than we could have dreamed of! the gardens were beautiful. the house was nicely appointed. the pool was refreshing every time we went in...and that was generally 3 times a day. upon arrival, paul met us at the airport and picked us up. upon arriving at the house, paul & gail took care of us that first nite as we arrived late and our 2 yr old was tired from two 18 hr days of traveling. they took great care of us. made sure we were fed & made sure we knew how things worked. after some sleep, we woke up the next morning & walked into town (10 min) and went to get our rented bikes (reserved by gail). for 2 weeks we simply rode bikes everywhere. what a fantastic location. no need to rent a car unless you are going to the ruins. got groceries on our bikes and returned beer bottles and cases on bikes. what activities we chose to do, gail arranged for us. this was like having our own personal assistant while on vacation. everything that was arranged was top notch! monkey river, snorkeling, fishing. the property was described accurately. the property was very clean & very well maintained. in fact, the only drawback for us was the constant care that has to go on to the property to keep it beautifully maintained. lots of gardeners, painters, etc. we felt badly swimming in the pool while they were all sweating away and working so hard. even though all the guys were working, they were respectful and very nice to us and our kids. they loved the kids! if we were going to placencia again, we would love to stay at this beautiful home. we were not disappointed at all and were very pleased with our decision to book and stay for 2 weeks. this was a definite favorite vacation for all 4 of us."

  • 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!!"

  • Enchanting Experience!

    "Villa del Sol exceeded our lofty expectations for a charming, authentic experience on Ambergris Caye. The house was immaculate, tastefully and lovingly decorated, with large, open second floor. The owner clearly loves her beach home and provides everything you'll need to cook at home, if desired. On-site staff available but not intrusive. Rachel cleaned every other day and washed towels and sheets. Water taxi is clearly the best way to get around, as the previous rains had made some parts of the "road" impassable. Other option is to rent a bike and join the many locals who travel north/south by path near the water's edge. Good idea to load up on groceries in San Pedro when you arrive -- the nearby market is tiny but well provisioned, if not a bit pricey. Water taxi was reliable and reasonably priced; but before you make plans to use it to go out to dinner, check to see if the restaurant has their own shuttle service. We used the shuttle from "O" at Las Terazas and also from "Mambo" at Matachica, two upscale resorts with excellent restaurants on site. We also enjoyed dining at Elvi's Kitchen in downtown San Pedro -- it was excellent, resulting in multiple visits over two weeks. Less noteworthy, for us, were Blue Water and Rojo, the former in south San Pedro and the latter just north of Villa del Sol. While we didn't use Genie at Coral Divers, neighbors did and reported good experiences. We dove three times with Amergris Divers and found them to be professional, friendly and a great value. Finally, the owner of VDS, Janice, is a delightful woman who loves the island, her home there and willingly offers advice and recommendations just for the asking. A true gem! Thank you, and we certainly hope to return to VDS!"

  • Don't Stay Any Other Place!

    "Just returned home after a fantastic holiday stay in Brenda's condo with our family. After exploring much of the island it was uniformly agreed that there is no better place we could have booked our vacation. The resort is in the process of adding gym, spa and restaurant facilities on site and if we were in the position to consider owning a piece of paradise the Grand Caribe would be first choice. The unit is exactly as described with beautiful views of the Caribbean from the master bedroom, a well stocked kitchen and plenty of space for the 5 of us (with one person on the pull out couch - typically (un)comfortable). The resort is the perfect distance from San Pedro and we even walked into town a couple of times (a 45 minute walk) instead of using the water taxi or golf cart. The staff was helpful and friendly at all times and go out of their way to assist in carrying groceries or making reservations. But it does seem that all of the islanders share this welcoming attitude. You can not pass anyone without getting a wave or "hello". The food was uniformly wonderful everywhere we ate although Aji right next door to Grand Caribe is beautiful amidst the palms and twinkling lights. And Melt Café for breakfast has great huevos rancheros."

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.
