  • Spring Breakers!

    "We got back last night from our week in Belize. We had a lovely time in Placencia! We drove down from Belize City and arrived at Casa Nettuno, after a 3.5 hour drive. Ignacio was there to greet us and show us the house and provide the keys. We ate dinner that first night at Wendy's in the village and loved our meal! Other places that we ate dinner at included Rumfish y vino, Habanero's in Robert's Grove resort (very tasty mexican dinner), the Cozy Corner (we also had a great beachside breakfast there one morning!) Jennifer cooked chicken and beans and rice for our dinner one night. The last night there, we made our own dinner w/ fresh caught fish that day from John and Chris's fishing trip. Some great lunches that we had were at Dawn's Grill and Go (really liked that place, and we met the owner Dawn who was lovely!), and another great lunch at Sweet Mama's in Robert's Grove resort, which was delicious. We ate lunch at DeTatch one day which was just so-so. We probably would not recommend DeTatch. Brenda's place at the dock was bustling and she provided us with fresh-from-the-oven, homemade macaroons, and lunch more than one day. John the Baker Man also provided us with yummy baked treats (cinnamon rolls and coconut tarts), as did the Above Grounds Coffee Shop (I loved the fresh juice blend for breakfast at Above Ground and the fresh breakfast doughnuts and muffins we had there!) We did a day of snorkeling through Splash, out to Gladden Spit to try to spot some whale sharks (they eluded us that day!) The sea was a bit choppy for snorkeling, but the lunch served onboard and the boat crew were all wonderful. We had a nice time swimming and relaxing in between snorkeling. Not sure it was really worth the price of $200 per person, especially since we did not see any whale sharks and did not see a really big variety of fish while snorkeling. In truth, both my son and I got a bit seasick. My husband really enjoyed his time on the water. Another day we did a Monkey River tour set up by Robert's Grove that was actually a lot of fun for us. We enjoyed talking with our guide,Terry, who lives in the Monkey River village and we loved the simple but delicious lunch served at the village restaurant. We loved the walk in the rainforest and saw MANY howler monkeys while on the hike. The price for the tour seemed like a real bargain for the amount of enjoyment we got out of it. We loved the house and its beach. Ignacio and Jennifer were both wonderful. We will come back!"

  • The best family vacation ever!

    "HI, We were in Belize for 2 weeks in August we had the best time ever. Villa is just amazing fully equipped and beautiful. Swimming pool was just refreshing and having the palapa with the hammock was my highlight of the trip...just relaxing. My 2 girls 9 and 12 just loved hanging out in the pool and making sand castles on our private beach that was cleaned up every day. Listening to the waves at night from the bedroom was my god soooo relaxing :) I really recommend taking Alrin for a tour guide we did Monkey River and Snorkeling/fishing both days were just perfect. We did some hiking, visited chocolate and banana plantation, zipline, cave tubing, ATM cave... Belize was just the perfect family vacation. August was a perfect month beautiful weather and less tourist! Food in Belize is just WOW!!! Thank you Yvonne and David for your recommendations and renting out your Villa this was the best family trip ever!"

  • escape from winter

    "Our stay in this beach house far exceeded our expectations in every regard! The owner has gone to great extent to ensure that you have all the comforts of home. He has thought of everything. The home is even more beautiful and luxurious than the pictures. It is clean and well-kept and has plenty of towels, linens, great appliances, and cook ware. It is a great location – private and peaceful. The beach and palapa are exquisite. Words just don’t do it justice. You truly feel like you’ve landed in paradise. We drove in from the airport in Belize City with very good directions from the owner with no trouble, although it’s best to do it in the daytime as there is a lot to see. A highlight for sure was the day spent fishing, diving, and visiting the Cayes with the guide. It was simply fantastic - something not to be missed. The bounty of fish, lobster, crab and conch we caught provided several 5 star meals!! There’s a great barbeque grill to use also. We used the owner’s excellent fishing gear and snorkeling equipment to explore the ocean right at the house and saw crab, conch, sand dollars, many varieties of fish, jelly fish, and ray of some kind! There is also a great stash of DVDs if you want to relax with a movie at the end of your day. There is a market and excellent bistro about ten minutes from the house and the charming village of Placencia is only a few miles further down the road. The Belizean people we met were delightful and helpful. Every aspect of our visit was perfect. We were sad to leave and will definitely be back someday"

  • Four Great Weeks at Maya Lodge

    "My wife and I just spent half of February and half of March at Maya Lodge, a full four weeks and enjoyed every minute of it. We spent a lot of time just enjoying the warm to hot temperatures and enjoying the local food both at restaurants and home cooked at Maya Lodge from local fresh fruit and vegetable markets. Maya Lodge is an excellent base for going off on adventures. We did the Monkey River tour seeing three crocodiles, three manatees, a bunch of howler monkeys, and lots of birds. We did the day tour to see the Mayan Ruins at Xunantunich, well worth it. We also rented a "golf cart" for a day to explore the Peninsula itself. Attending the Volunteer Fire Department's Flaming Hearts Ball was indeed a ball with good music and food to be sampled from all of the local eateries. Staying at Maya Lodge makes everything else easy and enjoyable with it's spaciousness, fully equipped kitchen, and comfortable sleeping. The Lodge is within easy walking distance to everything one needs. Stefano, the local property manager is helpful whenever needed (for us only rarely). This is our third stay in Maya Lodge. It is truly our home-away-from home in Placencia."

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.
