  • Get Away in Paradise

    "My wife and I finally took a vacation on our own…no kids, just the two of us. We had done some research on Belize and liked what we saw. After further research and reading reviews we chose Sarkiki Reef Resort, and glad that we did! Sarkiki Reef was exactly how we imagined it to be from the pictures we saw on line…gorgeous! The rooms are large, clean and well maintained. The views from our patio and deck were incredible. There seemed to be a nice gentle breeze every day. The staff were very nice and always smiling, there when you need them but never in the way. The pool area is great, very clean and quiet with great views of the ocean and beach just steps away. The beach was clean, no sand fleas, the rooms and grounds also all bug free. It was great. We recommend using the local fishing guides (Patrick was our guide) if you want to actually catch fish! A great day on the water with Patrick (recommended by Linda from Sarkiki) snorkeling, swimming and fishing. Amazing waters, the underwater plant life and tropical fish were incredible! Other guests at the resort were very friendly and always ready to hear about the days adventures. It was a great “get away” and we would go back in a heartbeat."

  • Wonderful Time at Stella Di Mare

    "We were a group of 8 friends that rented for a week. Victor (the caretaker) was awesome. He handled all of our questions, booked our trips, and helped with our endless questions. He knows the area very well and is an incredible resource to take advantage of. He’s a great guy and cares a ton about making his guests happy. We went to Hol Chan, Caye Caulker, cave tubing, sailed with SeaDuced and took kayaks to the reef a few times. The reef was also amazing…and its only 10 minutes in front of the villa. There were plenty of chairs and lounges, plus a hammock that we lazed in and loved. We had an awesome time and plan to come back!"

  • Lovely Condo, Great Owner, outstanding staff!

    "Beautiful resort with outstanding grounds, pool, location restaurant and location (a short golf cart ride from town, recommend you rent a golf cart if you are there for a week or more) The condo was stunning, VERY roomy (we were two couples) with top notch accoutrements! As a long-time VRBO client who has rented many NICE properties, this was the best with a kitchen outfitted for the most discerning chef! However- construction in the unit above us was VERY noisy, from sun-up to after sun down."

  • A Marvelous Week!

    "Our week-long stay at Casa Laguna Vista was marvelous as was our time in the wonderful little country of Belize. We totally enjoyed the lovely house with all of its amenities. Everything was as advertised. The home is "like new" and very well appointed. We were very comfortable and enjoyed the kitchen very much. The front and back porches were much used. We definitely plan to return to Belize and again make Casa Laguna Vista our base for sightseeing."

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.
