  • 60th Birthday Celebration

    "The Habaru House was fantastic. It was clean and very comfortable. The only disappointment about the trip were the mosquitos and the water in the front of the house. Because of the rains, the mosquitos were numerous and the water in front of the house was murky and not made for swimming. Anthony and Gilbert were extremely helpful and accommodating. Lots of adventures and vacationing outside the box."

  • Sunset Pointe Placencia, a highlight of our trip to belize

    "We could not have asked for a better place to stay in Placencia...the condo was just as described ...beautiful and clean! The on-site manager was polite, respectful, very helpful and accomodating! The location is perfect with wonderful views from two breezy decks, a great pool and a short walk or quick ride to town! It was the best of both worlds...Fransisco helped us with anything we needed while we were there and our booking couldn't have been easier...the owners graciously worked with us to make a slight change to our lodging due to some outside work begin completed. Took a wonderful tour of the howler Monkeys that started by boat at Sunset Point. The guide was fantastic! We definitely would recommend Sunset Pointe for both couples or families as the two bedrooms each with their own bathroom gave us plenty of personal space and the second bedroom would be perfect for a couple with children. The owner was very gracious in helping us to make arrangement prior to our arrival in Placencia with wonderful advice which we heeded. Belize is a quite a place and we have many more spots that we want to discover so we will be going back again sometime next year. Thanks again for your hospitality and the friendly atmosphere we enjoyed at Sunset. Hope to see you again! Take care, GW & MW-Hampton, NH, USA"

  • Awesome Condo

    "Paradise Villa and this condo is just an awesome place when visiting San Pedro. Melissa was very helpful in all my vacation plans. Michael picked me up at the airport and made my stay exceptional. I stayed at the condo and traveled by myself and i felt very safe. All the staff at Paradise Villa was willing to help in any way. I would recommend this condo and would stay again. I really enjoy cooking so this was great to have the fresh market right across the street from the condo. The condo is centrally located and close walking distance to town."

  • the home was awesome, everything you see in the photos about the house and pool are right.

    "We loved the place we stayed at, a little dissapointed at how the beaches of San Pedro were kept up. The weather was absolutely perfect and the restaurants were very good, the average price for two and a couple of drinks for each will run you about 80-90 dollars. An avereage hamberger is about 12.00 american money. All in All I would give San Pedro a 6 oout of 10 because I'm a water lover and it let me down."

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.
