  • First time in Belize!!

    "Our first stay in Belize was made even more wonderful thanks to our gracious hosts! Unfortunately, we were unable to meet Iain, who was away on business, but upon our arrival Lilly made sure our comfort was priority; introducing us to a host of friendly local faces and showing us the local spots for grocery shopping and sundries. Their recommendations of restaurants and things to do and see are spot on! All the services they referred us to were professional, dependable and reasonably priced! The Orchid Cottage is exactly as it is shown in the pictures and even more welcoming in person. It is cozy and well-appointed giving us all the comforts of home. The property is stunning, the grounds beautiful and well-manicured, and tended by the always smiling and cheery, Nathaniel. Minnie, the most adorable pup ever is always happy to come hang out and jump in your lap. Lilly and Iain have put much thought and consideration into the comforts of their guests. The location of the property is unbeatable – an easy stroll to the Bay, minutes to good restaurants, and to the market and downtown area. We always felt safe whether within the walls and locked gates of the property or walking around town. We especially enjoyed the food, drinks and conversation with locals at Jam Rock and Blue’s. It was an unforgettable trip and we hope someday to return to this beautiful country and her diverse culture. If you plan to stay in Corozal, Coral Cottages is the best – the hospitality we experienced is unmatched. Hands down - a five star location."

  • Family Get-Away

    "We had such a wonderful relaxing time! Our kids loved the loft and the pool was the perfect cool down in the heat of the day. Michael was so helpful and Nick, the taxi driver was very informative. The house is just perfectly stocked with everything you need to make meals, coffee etc. We will definitely keep the Hidden Gem in mind for our next family vacation to Caye Caulker!"

  • Great Place go to trip advisor to find out more AWH

    "This is a great place to stay in Placencia. The home is very clean and well maintained and has all the necessary things to make your stay enjoyable. They have a full and complete kitchen, with juicer-blender-and all the other things normally found in the kitchen. They have 2 hammocks, snorkel gear, basketball, books, games, and tv cd's and 2 bicycle's which is about all you need to get around the village. The home is located 100 yards from the grocery store. Then you can ride or walk to "downtown placecencia", which you can cover in about a mile at the most, here you will find all you need food-drink-grocery-pharmancy."

  • ahhhhh Belize.....

    "I've been to this resort three times in the last 10 years. The last time here at Christmas 2012 was the best. We went as a large group--'family vacation'. My family stayed in this unit and it really is one of the best on the property. Right ON the beach and with direct access out the front door of the condo! Also, its located on a quiet part of the resort--but still very close (1 min) to the main building where the bar/restauarnt is located. The condo is very comfortable and decorated authentically to the country/Region. Robert's Grove has upgraded several areas making it more attractive. The onsite restaurant offers great breakfasts, lunch and dinner and it's a fun and intimate spot to have a 6 pm cocktail at the bar before dinner! The second restaurant is Mexican and is also great! The resort can set up many tours including Monkey River, fishing and so on. We had a fantastic family vacation here--it's perfect for a large group or for some 'down time' as a couple. The bonus is that the town of Placencia is only 4 miles away and you can rent bikes (or get a taxi) to ride to town for shopping and other eating spots. We will be going back to Belize and to this spot!"

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.
