  • Wonderful

    "We had a wonderful vacation at Sunset Beach. We arrived at the airport and our taxi was there with in minutes. The condo was spotless. Ice was made in the freezer for our first night of cocktails. There is plenty of room in the condo. Nice surprise is we could drink the water and make our own ice. Plenty of sheets, towels, extra blankets and pillows. The pool is nice and we loved the pier. We were out there every night looking at the different fish. The hammocks were an added plus. We appreciated the furniture on our private porch and out on the beach. There is a small market you can walk to for groceries. The prices were very fair compared to the bigger groceries in San Pedro. We do recommend a golf cart. Walking or riding bike into San Pedro was a bit of a hike. We felt very safe and most people were friendly and helpful as we were friendly and respectful. We used SUYA for our excursions and had a great time. Laminae, deep see fishing and snorkeling. Yes we would come back. Only negative for us, was we could not snorkel right off the shore. Quite a bit of boat traffic going south to Hol Chan reserve (LOVE!) and Shark Alley (interesting). We did use the kayak's and had some fun with those. Thanks Diane (upstairs) for all your tips and Beth for your welcome to Sunset Beach. We fell in love with Belize!"

  • Sun seeker

    "The house is in fair repair. The ceiling fan in our room did not function. The bed was really hard and creaked loudly with every movement. It was bad enough that I began sleeping on the single bed in the room so my wife and I could sleep. The grounds were well kept but the beach was a mess with really smelly rotting seaweed for the entire length of the property. This would be a lot to clean up but well worth it by the looks of the proprties that have done so. Thank goodness there is a dock and a boat to get out to the good water by the reef. One stand up paddle board no longer had a fin on the bottom and 1 of the tandem kayaks did not have seat cushions or a back rest. The fuel in Belize is expensive so plan to add an extra $500 or so for boat fuel for the week if you are planning to do a lot of trips to snorkel or go to town. The staff are pleasant and professional. Sarge was an awesome guide for the snorkel trips and is HIGHLY recommended. The snorkeling was amazing. Mexico Rocks and Shark/Ray alley should be on your list. Zuly is an amazing cook. I would recommend that you get a grocery list from Zuly on what she needs. It will be worth it!! If fishing is your thing I would suggest getting a guide outfit in town as the boat was too small for our party to get to the better areas. Overall we had a great trip and hope to return to Belize for more great snorkeling."

  • Magical Vacation Rental

    "We stayed at the Main Stay for a week, during the holidays. My boyfriend and I really found it romantic, magical and so accommodating. The staff is remarkable; everyone really makes you feel safe and really allows you to have a very relaxing stay. We had the beach all to ourselves and when shared with the other visitors, everyone was so welcoming & amazing. It still felt exclusive & private. We felt like we were with family on a grandeurs vacation. We cooked every morning on the outdoor grill found on the wrap around porch while listening to the sounds of the birds & drinking fresh coconuts, right of the tree. This place truly is very magical. For the price, it’s incredible how special, private, peaceful, and grand it is. There is a very expensive spa up the road that charges a ridiculous amount of money, but they do not have a private magical beach as we did, with inclusive use of canoes, kayaks & bikes. The Main Stay is “the” place to stay when heading for Belize. It is simple, and absolutely perfect, just as any vacation should be. We cannot wait to plan our next trip!"

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.
