Discover beauty under the surface
The water off the shores of Belize City is home to a colourful array of marine life and the glorious Belize Barrier Reef. You don’t need to know how to scuba dive, with hundreds of snorkelling areas along the reef. While snorkelling, you have a chance of seeing turtles, barracudas and rays, along with other memorable creatures.
Belize City accommodation right on the water’s edge provides a convenient base to organise your next scuba diving or snorkelling adventure, while ensuring you’re well-rested and relaxed. The Bird’s Eye View Lodge and the Villa Boscardi are great for budget-savvy travellers who prefer luxuries they’ll actually use.
Belize City is located right next to the Caribbean Sea, but that doesn’t mean you can’t ditch the sand and water for a lush green jungle. It’s a great feeling being away from the noise and stress of city life, and simply losing yourself amidst green landscapes and the sounds of nature.
The Dream Valley Jungle Lodge is a true escape, boasting sumptuous rooms with views of the Belize Rainforest and Belize River. You’ll find yourself relaxing the second you step foot onto the property. Positioned in a monkey sanctuary, Howler Monkey Resort delivers the unique experience of living amongst local people and wildlife.
Few can say no to a private island
Caye Caulker is a small island off the coast of Belize City. It features a village and a number of luxury resorts and hotels. If you’re staying on Caye Caulker, you’ll notice a significant drop off of people and an array of water-based adventures. Head out on a manatee tour, scuba dive the reef and windsurf over the picturesque water.
If you’re staying on an island paradise, you might as well do so in style. For visits longer than a week, bunker down away from the world at the self-contained Macaw Apartments. The Anchorage Resort, Pancho’s Villas and Chila’s Cabins all provide comfortable rooms for affordable prices.
