  • Restful Respite in a beautiful location

    "My sister and I went to Belize to deal with our fathers estate. We were received with thoughtful attention and assistance to do what we needed to do at a time when we were grieving and tired. Our room had sweeping views of the ocean. Not once did we feel unsafe night or day. Paulette from Luba's just next door fed us coconut rice and chicken smothered with sweet salsa, just a door down in the beach. Breakfast at Luba's was french toast or Belizean style jack and eggs. There is a general store within walking distance and the highway to Hopkins is easy to drive on rentals at Hopkins auto rental and they bring you an SUV to the airport. A five star experience on a three str budget !"

  • Go Slow So That You Have Time To Enjoy Amanda's Place

    "There were 8 people that stayed for 2 weeks at Amanda's Place and everyone had a good time and enjoyed the hospitality of the island. Actually one couple ended up adopting a little dog from the shelter who had a tough journey in his life. Amanda was real helpful in expediting his trip back to the states. Amanda was real helpful with any other questions or needs that we had. The two weeks went fast but was pleasant for the most part. The pool was a plus too. We all spent a lot of time around there. The only negative things that we noticed was the noise late at night since her place was right on the street. The blinds in the bedrooms really didn't block out the light from the streets. Could use a little updating of kitchen pots and pans. Overall, the place was enjoyable and we would stay there again."

  • Great place!!!

    "Our group just returned from a week at Cocoplum! What a great vacation! Aaron and Stewart are the best.... The house was perfect for 3 couples. The patio, pool and beach are all wonderful. We had Radiance cook for us 2 nights and she was amazing. We also went and heard Aaron play down at the Maya Beach Bistro!!!! He's fantastic. The house is very private and the beach is very quiet. You are a short distance to the Market, Mangos, Maya Beach Bistro... We drove into town a few times for Tuttie Fruitie, Barefoot Bar and to get on a boat. The only negative thing is that we did get some bug bites. Some of our group more then others. Be sure to bring bug spray and use it. This is a fantastic house in a fantastic location with a fantastic beach! How can you go wrong?"

  • Paradise in Placencia

    "Paradise in Placencia is what we found at Starfish Villa. From the moment we walked through the doors to the walled gardens we knew we had made the right choice. The gardens are lush with a variety of plants and create an immediate feeling of relaxation. The beautiful private pool with the waterfall is surrounded by these gardens. Beyond this are the palappa docks where we enjoyed drinks, watching the kayaks, sailboats etc. What a view! The villa itself is spacious, beautifully decorated and very well appointed. We were one of two couples staying for 10 days and it worked extremely well for us. Paul and Gail, our hosts, went out of their way to make our visit enjoyable. They recommended restaurants and we were never disappointed. Gail booked our tours and excursions which made it hassle free for us. We must recommend the Monkey River tour and our guide Percy….what an informative and fun day! Also suggested by our hosts was a snorkel excursion that proved to be one of the best we had ever done. Another major plus for us was that the village of Placencia is an easy 10 minute walk or a few minute golf cart ride. The people we met in the village were so welcoming and helpful. It is a great little place with beach bars, shops and great restaurants. Needless to say, we had an amazing 10 days and wished we could have stayed longer. If ever we get back to Belize it will be to Starfish Villa for sure. Thanks Paul and Gail for sharing your beautiful home with us and making our vacation so memorable!"

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.
