It comes as no surprise to us that Lonely Planet, the world’s largest travel guide publisher, gave Belize first position in its recent list of Five Family-Friendly Destinations You Might Not Have Thought About. Adventure Island on Glover’s Reef in Belize is the perfect destination for a once-in-a-lifetime family-centered vacation. We offer special rates for kids 11 and under and we also have special discount vacation packages for groups of 4 or more.

Why is our eco-resort the perfect family destination? For one, it’s a private island, your kids are safe. And since we either kayak to our snorkel spots or swim right off shore, there are no long boat rides to wipe the kids out early or to complicate timely retreats to the cabana.

Adventure Island is easy and fun for families but it’s also an amazing educational experience. Not only will kids learn new sports like sea kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving, kite surfing, wind surfing, kayak surfing, sport fishing, kayak fishing, paddle boarding, and board surfing, they’ll also have mind-expanding opportunities to learn fish identification, Mayan history, everything you ever wanted to know about coconuts, urchins and starfish at low tide walk, coral reef biology, shore birding, and hermit crab biology. We also have quite an international crew: Belizean Mayans, Belizean Garifuna, Belizean Creoles, plus Americans, Canadians, and Brits. Adventure Island is a cross-cultural experience of the highest order and your kids will make many new friends.
