  • Beautiful spot with beautiful people

    "My husband and I and a couple good friends just returned from our trip to Belize. Our time in Placencia was perfect in every way. The Belize people are so friendly and happy, we loved being walking distance to all the shops and fruit/vegetable stands.. The restaurants are delicious, with prices being great! We hooked up with Alfred a few times and fell in love with him. He is a great guide with a heart for teaching you all things Belize. You must do the 1000 ft waterfall hike! We did it without a guide and were fine, though its an extreme hike using ropes at times to get up. We also did the zip line thats right by it, it was perfect to do the same day as the waterfall hike.. Cheaper to do those things without the tour I think. Hatchet Caye is a place to visit for snorkeling and lunch.. Its beautiful! We did the Monkey River with Alfred and had lunch in the village, we took candy for the kids and loved all the smiles! Our stay at Sunset Point was perfect. Helen, the owner is so helpful with information on anything you would want or need. Her place is decorated wonderful and we were all really comfortable staying there. The caretakers are super sweet and helpful. All in all the perfect vacation with life long friends met along the way."

  • Wonderful Vacation!!

    "We had a group of 9 adults staying at the house and we all were VERY pleased with the accommodations! When choosing this house, we had narrowed our search down to 3 homes and voted as a group. Part of the reason we choose this house was having on site staffing of Alfred & Diana. Not a mistake!! They were fabulous!! We started with a welcome dinner on the Saturday we arrived, which consisted of lobster tails, fresh fish & chicken! What a spread that tasted as good as it looked. Would highly recommend having Diana cook for your party. We took the Tropic Ferry over from the airport as recommended - but going over we had pretty rough seas that made the trip long, cold and very choppy. Doing it again, we all would have chosen taking the plane instead. You can't depend on the weather/seas but at least flying you'd cut the commute time down to 20 minutes getting to the island. We also went snorkeling with Seaduced By Belize (Alfred recommendation) and couldn't have been happier! Top notch company focused on customer service!! We had all levels of experience and we all felt taken care of. Never had an empty glass of rum punch or beer, and the ceviche was awesome! They even went to the effort of getting some NA beer for a member of our group! We rented 1 golf cart for the group for a week (Alfred took care of this for us) which worked out great. Some took water taxis to town while others hopped on the cart and while in town grabbed some groceries/beer. 2 doors down from the house is a great place to eat/drink - Rojo! As a group we went twice and again, everybody was happy! Having a house phone to take with you was icing on the cake staying at BajaMar! Alfred is the first person listed, so you're never more than a touch away from him. It's always a little nerve racking picking a vacation home to rent, especially for a larger group of people. Don't worry a minute longer about renting BajaMar. I rely on reviews in making my decisions, so I don't write that statement lightly. Cheers!"

  • 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."

  • Perfect location for a family vacation

    "Our family of four was fortunate enough to arrange a week long stay at Sapphire House during the Christmas vacation. From the very first, we were impressed with the communication we received from Geoff and Jane and then from Amie at Caye Caulker rentals. Each email was answered promptly and every attempt was made to answer our questions. Upon our arrival, Amie met us with the keys and arranged a taxi to take us and our luggage to the house. Amie was kind enough to give us an orientation to the property and to explain island customs. She provided a map and gave us many helpful suggestion in regards to good restaurants and places to shop for groceries. We found the house to be clean and comfortable with room enough to satisfy even our teenager! The kitchen was surprisingly well appointed and we were very pleased to be able to prepare many of our meals at the house. The air conditioning worked very well in the house although I must admit that we had to Google the make and model before we could get it set properly. Once we got it sorted out, we were very comfortable. There are lots of screened windows that can also be opened to let in the fresh air if that is how your prefer to stay cool. To the delight of our teenager and my husband the WiFi was quite reliable and the TV had more than enough channel options to keep them happy (ahem!). I found my happy place in the hammock with a book, of which there are many to peruse in the house. There were so many thoughtful touches to make guests comfortable and we couldn't have been happier. We found the neighborhood to be peaceful and the walk to the village was very reasonable. We decided to rent bicycles for the week and we enjoyed many trips into the village for shaved ice and then on to the Split for swimming. The white sand roads were easy to navigate (watch for the occasional pothole) and were very safe to travel with only the occasional golf cart to pass by. We had lots of friendly greetings from the locals and the tourists and were met with many smiles. We would highly recommend Sapphire House especially for families as there is plenty of room and full kitchen amenities. Towels were included too, so no need to pack any! Just bring sunscreen and relax!"

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.
