  • Wonderful Vacation!!

    "We had a group of 9 adults staying at the house and we all were VERY pleased with the accommodations! When choosing this house, we had narrowed our search down to 3 homes and voted as a group. Part of the reason we choose this house was having on site staffing of Alfred & Diana. Not a mistake!! They were fabulous!! We started with a welcome dinner on the Saturday we arrived, which consisted of lobster tails, fresh fish & chicken! What a spread that tasted as good as it looked. Would highly recommend having Diana cook for your party. We took the Tropic Ferry over from the airport as recommended - but going over we had pretty rough seas that made the trip long, cold and very choppy. Doing it again, we all would have chosen taking the plane instead. You can't depend on the weather/seas but at least flying you'd cut the commute time down to 20 minutes getting to the island. We also went snorkeling with Seaduced By Belize (Alfred recommendation) and couldn't have been happier! Top notch company focused on customer service!! We had all levels of experience and we all felt taken care of. Never had an empty glass of rum punch or beer, and the ceviche was awesome! They even went to the effort of getting some NA beer for a member of our group! We rented 1 golf cart for the group for a week (Alfred took care of this for us) which worked out great. Some took water taxis to town while others hopped on the cart and while in town grabbed some groceries/beer. 2 doors down from the house is a great place to eat/drink - Rojo! As a group we went twice and again, everybody was happy! Having a house phone to take with you was icing on the cake staying at BajaMar! Alfred is the first person listed, so you're never more than a touch away from him. It's always a little nerve racking picking a vacation home to rent, especially for a larger group of people. Don't worry a minute longer about renting BajaMar. I rely on reviews in making my decisions, so I don't write that statement lightly. Cheers!"

  • Family Vacation

    "Could not have been better. Karen and staff helpful and friendly. Swam each day off pier. Kayaks were fun and when we when we traveled way to far (all the way into town!) Karen sent the truck to pick us up. Safe. Secure. Tons of fun. 5 adults and we had tons of space and lots to do and see. Local food good and safe to eat. Women selling fresh bread in the evening in town--sweet bread the best. Fruit and veggie truck comes outside gate each Thurs afternoon with bargain prices. Watch the sunrise each am and wondered across the street to watch sunset in the evening. Belize Zoo very fun stop. Fish market in town is hidden so ask locals. "John the Bakerman" is a must for local tarts and yummy banana bread. Donna at the pier in Placencia (I think it is Night Winds Tours) has good prices. Enjoy!"

  • Perfect! Fantastic Views; Cool Ocean Breezes!

    "Exactly as pictured and meticulously cleaned for our arrival; well appointed with most everything you need for your stay. We stayed for a week in March and really enjoyed Oasis del Caribe and this unit. Carolyn was great to work with for our booking and very responsive to our needs, providing lots of helpful advice and recommendations for us. Oasis del Caribe complex is very well maintained - we saw the pool being cleaned twice every day! The location is perfect; everything is within walking distance and every morning we enjoyed cinnamon rolls from Casa Pan Dulce which is about a two-minute walk. We didn't bother renting a golf cart as everything that we wanted was within easy walking distance, however if you are more interested in relaxing than walking, a golf cart would come in handy for picking up groceries, dining out and such. The condo is on the 3rd floor and the walk up is well worth it for the views and the cool breeze from the ocean when you're enjoying a drink on the balcony or on the roof-top, which affords you a full panoramic view of San Pedro. We recommend Richie's for groceries - best prices and selection, and the small liquor store just north of Richie's on the same side of the street. The store owner recognized us after 2 visits and started discounting our purchases without us even asking. The people of San Pedro are very warm and friendly and we were quite comfortable walking the streets and beaches. For lunch one day, we had Pork Burritos from Waraguma on Pescador (middle street) which were absolutely delicious, as were Frozen Margaritas from Wayo's Beach Bar just next door. Do yourself a favor and book a snorkeling trip to Hol Chan Marine Reserve and Shark Ray Alley; we used Searious Adventures; they picked us up by boat virtually right in front of Oasis del Caribe, and will drop you off there as well - cost was $70.00 USD (includes Marine Reserve fees of $10.00/pp) for 2 hours of guided snorkeling (ask for Eddie for your guide!). The excursion was the highlight of our trip, even better than the snorkeling off of Curacao which I didn't think possible. Thank you so much, Carolyn - we hope to return some day. We certainly won't need to shop around for accommodations!"

  • Casa Caracol Stay

    "Our group of 3 couples stayed in the downstairs apartment of Casa Caracol November 21-Nov 29. It was our first trip to Belize, and Ambergris Caye. Phil was very responsive to my emails during the months leading up to our visit. We had him book our flights from Belize City to San Pedro. He met us at the San Pedro airport as promised, and upon our arrival at the house he went over things we should know, which was very helpful. If you listen to his instructions you should have no problems. The house was very clean and inviting, and had everything we needed. We did not do any cooking, as many restaurants and roadside stands were inexpensive, easy and close. We were surprised to see golf carts and other vehicles driving on the beach in front of the house, though it really did not cause any problems for us. The bar next door was really nice... good food and cold beers at reasonable prices. It did get a little loud at night sometimes, so be aware if you are a light sleeper. We used the 2 person kayak and Phil gave us some important instructions before we went to insure our safety. Phil arranged a snorkel trip for us that was fantastic! He also arranged for golf carts when we were ready. He accumulated those charges and we paid him at the end of our stay, which was convenient. He was very responsive to any questions or anything we needed during our stay. We had a lot of fun exploring and riding around on our golf carts. The beach was not the best for lounging, though that didn't stop us ;). We floated in our rafts right in front of the house, and there are lots of creatures to be found in the sea grasses. The locals are very friendly and helpful."

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.
