  • Honeymoon in Belize

    "My (now) wife and I just back from our honeymoon in Placencia and we're already hoping to get back as quickly as we can! Placencia is definitely off the beaten path and it will take a little extra traveling to get there, but it's well worth it. The people are wonderful, the food excellent and you have the flexibility to either take it easy or go on an adventure with a tour agency (we went up to the ATM cave with Pirate's Point Adventure Tours and Shane was excellent) or book through Francisco, who works at the condo and can help arrange most tours if you ask him. If you go fishing and decide to keep your catch, a place called The Shak has a "you hook it, we cook it" option - unfortunately we found out about that too late, so weren't able to take advantage of it. The condo itself was excellent. It's a bit large for only two people, but that didn't detract from our stay. Having the pool on site was also a big plus. The condo is at the very end of the peninsula, which makes it an ideal location if you want a quiet place to stay. You do have the option to rent a bike or golf cart to get to and from the main part of the village; we walked most of the time and didn't have any issues. (If you're looking got do some inland adventures, most tour agencies can arrange transportation. Yes, you will pay for it, but it is worth it.) It's maybe a 5-10 minute walk and, even during the hottest part of the day, it wasn't unbearable. We are very happy that we stayed here and would recommend this location to anyone else looking to visit Placencia."

  • UN BELIZE ABLE

    "This was the most amazing vacation ever. The owner of this property spared No expense and has incredible taste. Super spacious for large groups, pool was amazing and house being on the sand was pretty cool. We're not divers but we had so many excursions and things to do we would absolutely recommend this home and vacation to anyone who wants paradise. Swimming with sharks, sting rays on the amazing coral reefs five minutes from the property was the highlight for me. I personally highly recommend this property to anyone who wants an amazing trip they will not forget. The staff was amazing and readilly available if needed. Over all the locals are super friendly and now I know why the owner loves this property and country so much. 5+ stars for me and family."

  • Great Spot!

    "This was the ideal situation for us. My boyfriend and I stayed here with another couple and loved our experience. Casa Verano is right on the beach and close to town. We rented a golf cart off the bat and had a little trouble finding the place, but if you just head north on the main road, turn right at the roundabout and take the beach, you'll see it right after the Ocean Tide Beach Resort. Miss Jackie was wonderful and always available when we needed help with things like changing the water cooler or the propane tank. There's a great front balcony where we had coffee in the morning and there was a grill and hammock on the back balcony that I wish we'd used more. Casa Verano was clean, well stocked with cooking utensils and had a safe. I highly recommend this spot!"

  • Nicely updated condo

    "This condo was exactly as described in the VRBO information and the owner was extremely helpful in responding to my email enquiries and phonecalls about both the property and other things we needed info on in the town of San Pedro. I would highly recommend this place. It was conveniently located to the heart of the town as well as the waterfront. My only complaint had nothing to do with the condo itself but the beach area close by is not that nice as there really aren't many nice swimming areas due to the condition of the beach and the turtle grass. The property is clean and well maintained and has had recent major upgrades to the kitchen, bathroom, flooring and windows as well as air conditioning unit. My husband went scuba diving with San Pedro diving school and they were also tremendous to deal with. The scuba diving is fantastic. We enjoyed The Crazy Canuck bar that was in walking distance for Sunday fun evening and The AJ's (Average Joe's)bar has fantastic chicken wings and the service was great. The local manager of this property was very easy to deal with and made himself available for us when we arrived to make sure eveything was as it should be. As he works at another place as well I would recommend calling him when you arrive from the airport to make sure he is available to meet you when you get there. We rented a golf cart for a day so that we could drive from one end of the island to the other but everything is within easy walking distance to the condo. My only complaint was that the couch was not that comfortable for us and we would have preferred two easy chairs but that is strictly our only concern and is really not the owners problem. A great place and excellent value as we did check out other prices while we were there. This property is an easy three block walk from the airport but if you have lots of luggage you need to take a taxi which will cost you $5 US. All in all a great vacation."

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.
