    "We are ending our week's vacation at this beautiful condo and hate to leave. I am sitting on the large balcony looking out to sea and the view is amazing. The condo is close and convenient to everything, being right beside town but very secure. There is a locked gate on the ground floor so only guests can access. The maid and property managers were very attentive and the condo is spacious and cosy. We used the company right at the front of the condo for a snorkelling excursion and they were great. It is wonderful to have the beach at your doorstep. I would definitely highly recommend this spot. We rented a golf cart one day to explore the island but the rest of the week we walked everywhere that we wanted to go. We loved the Blue Water Grill for eating on the beach just a 2 min walk down the beach. We felt very safe walking on the beach, even at night!!! Can't wait to come back."

  • 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:)"

  • Beatiful scenery, relaxing setting and friendly people

    "Really enjoyed staying at this condo which was well-equipped, stylish and clean. The view from the balcony was amazing especially for morning coffee. Both the beach and pool were great places to enjoy the day. The building was quiet but it's only a short 20 minute walk to the village for great restaurants and nightlife. Would be great for two couples as the rooms have their own bathrooms and are private. Also a great place for a family as it's a safe distance from the village and the beach and pool are close and visible from the condo balcony. A great escape from Alberta winters!"

  • 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.
