  • Great house just too far north

    "We stayed last week for a work retreat, and the house was great!! Lots of privacy, excellent caretakers, great common space, and they provide everything you need. However, we were led to believe it was "just north" of San Pedro, when in reality it is a few miles into town. Also, the pool was leaking (listened to a jackhammer one entire afternoon) and the hot tub only worked if Martin rigged it. But the worst part is the bugs. Our entire crew was eaten alive, and we wore bug spray every single day. This isn't necessarily the owners fault (although maybe fog would help?), but wanted to make people aware."

  • Deserves 6 Stars

    "This was our second stay at Villa Adagio, and we could not recommend this villa more highly. The home is gorgeous - luxurious but relaxed, with every amenity imaginable. We were 3 generations and 6 people, and each of us felt pampered and comfortable. Restaurants and shops in San Pedro and to the north are a short hop away in the provided golf cart, but cooking in the chef's kitchen was a delight we enjoyed for many meals. Belize is a fascinating country - small but very rich and diverse in culture and environment. World-class snorkeling or diving is a quick boat ride from the villa. We went to the mainland and enjoyed touring the Mayan ruins at Xunantunich, zip lining, hiking through the jungle and cave tubing, all in one day, with a terrific guide arranged by the owner Dennis. Camille and Florencio are assets to be treasured - skilled at their jobs, friendly, and readily available whenever you need them but otherwise unobtrusive so you feel that you are truly at home in your own perfect paradise. Camille took us one day to a little-known pristine beach with sparkling blue water, and Florencio found us fresh snapper (it can be surprisingly hard to get fresh fish despite the fact that you are surrounded by water), and even cleaned the fish for us. Dennis could not be a more caring, helpful and knowledgeable host. He loves Belize and knows it thoroughly, and patiently answers all your questions. He is truly dedicated to assuring that you have a memorable visit in his home. The combination of a spectacular villa, dedicated staff and owner, and beautiful Belize guarantees that you will have the vacation of a lifetime."

  • Spring Break March 2015 !!!!

    "What a wonderful place for Spring Break. The unit was absolutely wonderful. The views and location were perfect. The condo had everything you needed and was very comfortable and spacious. Local restaurants were excellent. Traveling into town was a daily event for us which was quite easy. The staff at Grand Caribe were the best and catered to all our needs. Our six days was not enough and we wanted to stay longer. We will definitely come back."

  • Great staff and great location

    "The condo is located in a fantastic area to access everything by foot. The staff are exceptional, assisting with whatever is your need, renting golf carts to arranging transportation to get you to wherever you want to go. Bill and Connee are wonderful to deal with and provide a great place to rest recoup or take many adventures! Highly recommend this condo! We will be back for sure!"

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.
