  • Sooooo quiet!

    "We arrived short notice during low season and Janis was super accommodating. Francisco, the caretaker, was pleasant and very helpful, and Alfred was really a gem! First time to Belize, 2nd accommodation and we couldn't have planned it any better. The coconuts falling from the trees startled us at first but once Alfred showed us how to open them they became a treat. I hope we get back to this place and I'd stay here again in a heartbeat!"

  • Wonnderful trip celebrating 40th birthday

    "We just returned from a FANTASTIC trip to Belize. We loved everything about the house. There were 7 adults in our party and we felt that the house was perfect for this size group. We could have privacy or hang out as a group in the large living room area. we loved having a pool to relax in after snorkling, dinner or wandering around the streets of San Pedro. Alfred and Diane mad the trip just perfect. Diane is a fantastic cook and the meals were very affordable. We had Diane prepare a Welcome meal on our day of arrival and its was fabulous. There cost of the meal was much less than if we all had traveled to a restaurant for the evening and MUCH BETTER. Alfred was johnny on the spot. He arranged all our boats to go snorkeling, to other islands, fishing, grocery delivery or just a water taxi into town. It was so convenient to have a dock where all the boats would pick us up for the day. Alfred and Diane are really top notch. THANK YOU! we will definitely return to Belize and most definitely stay at the Beautiful Bajamar house again."

  • Awesome Accommodations

    "We just returned home from Belize and stayed at this location (Casa Hokolkin). I have ALL positive things to say about this house, this location, and the grounds. First, the house is awesome, clean, and decorated nicely. We had a party of 12 (5 adults, 2 teenagers, 5 kids). The kids ages were 11, 6, 4, and 1. We were able to use a pack n play and a high chair provided by Caye Management, which was very nice and clean. All ages had a blast! The house is very roomy and all bathrooms were very clean and accessible. The children had an awesome time playing on the beach and in the beautiful pool, as well as fishing and snorkeling off the Palapa. Loren, the owner was available for questions via email and provided us with clean water, a kayak, fins, and numerous beach towels. The pool is beautiful and steps from the house. The children had a blast swimming. Los Encontos has four homes, which were each rented. The pool was plenty large enough to accommodate all guests with ease. The groundskeepers were very helpful, quick to respond and hard workers. Rachel cooked us a fabulous meal and did some of our laundry per our request. We rented golf carts to get us to town. Los Encontos is located about 4.5 miles N of San Pedro. It took us about 30 minutes on the Golf Carts to get to town. The roads are bumpy, but we considered this an adventure. We ate at some great restaurants that were close by the home. In response to the comment from "Texas," we never had an issue with the water supply. Rachel did ask us to keep in mind the supply is from the rainwater and to not leave it on when not in use. If 12 of us can use the water daily, I think it is a non issue if not abused. I recommend this home to all. It made our stay in Belize memorable and comfortable. Thank you to Loran and the groundskeepers for attending to our every need. Lastly, for those concerned about getting to your destination once arriving, it was seemless. We had taxis and water taxis waiting for us. Our driver was ready to greet us, allowed us a stop at the grocery, and we were on our way to the home. It was perfect and much needed after a long day of travel with small kids:)"

  • Our stay at Villa La Jolla, Los Encantos Ambergris Caye, Belize

    "Our family of 6 spent six nights at Vila La Jolla. I can simply describe the overall stay as a phenomenal family vacation with the property, locale and amenities all meeting or exceeding our expectations. We found this property on VRBO via a simple search that included our preferred dates and rooming requirements. Once we found that the property was available, we contacted the owner Sally with specific questions on the location and the property and were amazed at the prompt (and now we know genuinely warm) response. She described the property, the room set up, the amenities and general aspects of the location. She did not oversell the property. Once we decided on the property and dates, the transaction with the property managers was seamless. Closer to the dates, we reached back to Sally and Trish (property manager) with now a barrage of questions. Again, within a few hours, Sally responded to all our questions (with Trish filling in the gaps) and this helped us prepare for our trip - as a family, we wanted a nice mix of R&R at the home and balancing it with local activities and nightlife on the island. There were no surprises. We were picked up at the ferry dock (Belize to San Pedro water taxi), taken shopping in town for key provisions (yes, Belikin beer!) and ferried across the island on a short 15 min boat ride to the dock at Los Encantos. We were met at the dock by Sergio and Raquel, the housekeepers, and shown to the house with all of the features explained. It is a beautiful house and a wonderful property. The house overlooks the water and property has a beautiful salt-water pool that the family all enjoyed after a busy day out-and-about and before dinner. Speaking of dinner, we had Raquel cook us two incredible meals with both Belizian and Creole flair. One night we had Genie, the fisherman who took us fishing and snorkeling, cook us our catch and that in itself was a restaurant-quality dinner. We would recommend this property to all our friends and family. It is wonderfully maintained, has all the amenities and very helpful owners and housekeepers. A very good wireless connection (we all made a pledge to go connection-less on this vacation), satellite TV (yes, we did watch the World Cup) and excellent cooking facilities with all the utensils and gadgets. We wish we had stayed longer but we do have some wonderful photographs and memories. We look forward to going back here."

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.
