  • A perfect romantic getaway!

    "The Red Treehouse was perfect for my wife’s and my stay in late April/early May 2014.. Once we landed and retrieved our luggage, Armando met us and took us to a market to get a few things for our stay and then delivered us by water taxi to Genie’s dock adjacent to the beach house. Rubio, the Treehouse caretaker was waiting on the dock with his wheelbarrow and delivered our luggage to the house and provided a brief overview of the property. After settling in, we decided to “explore” up the beach. A short walk away was a nice beach bar at a nearby resort. We enjoyed some delicious seafood ceviche and enjoyed our first taste of Belikin, the local beer! Our stay was wonderful in so many ways, with the tropical breeze always blowing, the lovely people we met, and the super food! Despite the many activities and excursions to chose from, our greatest enjoyment came from just relaxing on the deck enjoying the cool breeze, watching the hummingbirds feed and watching people traveling back and forth along the beach trail. We did follow others’ advice and utilized Coral Divers for our “destination” get-away. Snorkeling the Hol Chan/Shark Ray Alley and touring the Mayan Ruins were two amazing trips. Genie, the owner of Coral Divers, and his great staff, were all so helpful and friendly. The house is located about four miles north of San Pedro which challenged us a little, but overall beach bars/restaurants were within walking distance as was the Mata Grande grocery. We did rent bikes for the week but due to the sandy beach-side path we found it was easier in most instances to just walk to where we wanted to go. Like so many others have mentioned in previous reviews, we anxiously waited the call of the Burrito man out front in the mornings. What a great way to start the day! The house had everything we needed for our 10 day stay. Because of the dry season, it was necessary to use water conservatively but we followed the custom of others and only once was there a need to refill the cistern. We were welcomed from day one by a great family with Rubio, Iris, and little Luis (what a charmer!). Rubio and Iris treated us to a freshly caught supper of grouper and ceviche (his is THE BEST) on our 2nd day! Iris, too, was a wonderful cook and we learned how to make the ceviche and coconut rice. Rubio is a huge asset to the Treehouse!! We decided well before our departure that we would return to Belize, and if the timing is right, we are returning to the Treehouse."

  • Paradise!

    "Wow! Truly paradise. This is the best..the view..awesome. We loved the condo. We cooked often, the kitchen was full of many kitchen cooking needs. Nice places to eat out if you don't want to cook, walkable. Golf cart is necessary. Clean, fresh and fun! We will return."

  • Enjoyed our vist to Hidden Gem and Caye Caulker

    "Quite nice! We loved staying here. Lived up to its description and our expectations. We didn't make much use of the pier because of lack of any shelter from the sun. Note the pool is shared among three villas. Bikes are a necessity with everything within a 5 minute ride. The owner was very helpful with our pre-visit questions. Caye Caulker The sun is relentless! Cover up and/or slather on the sunscreen. Recommend applying bug repellant also. Most of the restaurants we used accepted credit cards but you'll probably need cash for your snorkel tours. Beware of Tropic Air and leave plenty of time for connections when leaving. Our flight from Caye Caulker to Belize City made an unscheduled stop at San Pedro turning what should have been a ten minute jaunt into 50 minutes. Don't worry too much about arrivals as they'll get you on the next plane. Restaurants There are quite a lot of small locally owned restaurants and cafes. Here are some we tried and liked. Pasta Per Caso Aladdins Caye Caulker Bakery - Regular baked goods plus flat breads and ham and cheese rolls The Little Kitchen - Don't let the approach to the place deter you. Great place to watch the sunset. Amor y cafe - The place for breakfast. Syd's - Enclosed patio means no breeze. Rose's Bar & Grill - Pricey Pizza Caulker Rainbow Grill Snorkeling We used Caye Caulker Reef Friendly Tours for a half day tour of the local reef and longer tour of the Hol Chan Reserve, the wreck, and Shark Alley. Our guide Zac is very experienced and took great care of us. We liked his regard for the reef. The shop is located on Front Street near the water taxi. Belize We also visited the Pine Ridge in the interior and the Belize zoo near Belmopan. There are lots of small resorts in the Pine Ridge. The scenery there is spectacular and the many water falls and rivers make for delightful swimming."

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.
