  • Find Your Rhythm to Relaxation at the Indigo Pearl on Caye Caulker!

    "What's the formula for two stressed-out working parents to achieve relaxation and celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary? We feel it's the Indigo Pearl + good coffee, ocean views, biking into town, swimming at the Split, hanging out in hammocks by the sea, shopping for dinner and eating your meal as the sun sets over the mangroves. All this is possible on Caye Caulker if you choose the Indigo Pearl! We spent 8 days and found that coffee on the balcony watching the ibis, mockingbirds, pelicans and cormorants was a perfect way to start our day. Breakfast is easy here if you've shopped the afternoon before - don't forget to prep the pineapple for breakfast and put the leftovers in the freezer for afternoon pina coladas! Drop a few tidbits to Jose the iguana who hangs out in the tree top and watch him and his friends below. Lounge around reading your book, posting photos on social media, or kayaking on the lagoon in front of the house. Midday means packing your swimming gear for the beach! Don't forget the sunscreen and bug spray. Head into town and take the beach road up. Find your spot at the Split beach and enjoy watching the frigatebirds overhead. Grab a Belikin or two and hang out on the pier - or better yet, grab a bucket at the Lazy Lizard and watch the islanders and tourists mingle as they dive in the turquoise water or show some skin on the deck. It's quite a show and it's free! When you get hungry ride down to Errolyn's Fry Jack shack or Meldy's and grab a burrito to go. Take it over to the beach and find a bench for your picnic. Hop back in the water, or my favorite - the hammock - and let the waves and wind lull you to sleep. When you wake up or are done swimming it's time to grab some groceries and head back for Happy Hour at the Indigo Pearl! Don't forget the coconut rum and coconut milk: key ingredients in keeping you 'Happy!' Oh, and ask the staff at Las Almendros to make you some fresh flour tortillas - they're down near the airstrip on Back Street. There's a grill to cook up fresh seafood or other meat. Full stove and lots of pots and pans for other cooking needs. The water pitcher you prepped in the morning will quench your thirst, or use the frosty mugs for double chill effects. The sun puts on a great show each night and the early sunset means lots of time to read or take advantage of the long night to reconnect with your loved one! We had a fantastic time and look forward to the chance to return and TRULY relax."

  • This was a great choice

    "We really enjoyed our stay. We stayed here for 2 weeks. The price was very reasonable, everything was nice and clean and the area was very convenient to everything that Placencia has to offer. The location on the lagoon was very nice. The house had everything we needed to cook our own meals at home when we wanted. We stayed in the downstairs unit. The neighbors upstairs were very nice. This is a great choice if you are looking for a clean, quiet, economical option for a great stay in Placencia."

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.
