Belize Vacation Tips

Belize 1 week itinerary

If you are planning to visit Belize, likely you have around 8 or 9 days to spend on your vacation. Most people like to do a combination of island and inland. Then they get the best of both: incredible Caribbean island with white coral sand and tall, shady palm trees coupled with deep jungle full of tropical birds, exotic flowering plants, and Mayan ruins. Our island packages to Long Caye are some

Belize Christmas Availability

Christmas in Belize is a wonderful way to spend the holiday. Give your family the gift of an experience rather than another “thing” they don’t need. Your kids will remember a sojourn to our island at Glover’s Reef for their whole life, long after the new phone or new shoes are lost, worn out, or forgotten. If you want to go to Belize for Christmas, you need to start planning early! This me

Don’t remind me… (it’s Hurricane Season)

Today I received an email from our travel insurance company. When you sign up for a trip to Belize with us, you will hear our strong recommendation to acquire a travel insurance policy. We make this recommendation because we have seen so many things go so wrong for a bunch of people… if you are one of those unfortunate people, travel insurance is a lifesaver. Of course, like all insurance po

Where to stay in Belize City with one extra day

Rich Lawson has been to our island seven times. His first trip was so long ago (2006), that this was before we were using the Biltmore in Belize City for our groups. We used to use the Chateau Caribbean, which was downtown next to the Radisson Ft. George. Rich loved the Chateau, and continued to stay there each year if he arrived early or stayed late. He tells me he liked the Chateau Caribbean, no

Touring Belize on your own

Many of our guests arrive a day or two early for one of our week-long adventure packages. We often get questions about touring Belize on your own. I have a favorite one-day loop trip that takes in the Baboon Sanctuary, the Belize Zoo, and my favorite restaurant for lunch: Cheers. Because it’s a loop, you can start anywhere on the loop and circle around and end up back in the same place. I

How to Combine Belize and Costa Rica in One Vacation

From Coral Reef and Mayan Ruins to the Cloud Forest Occasionally we get this question… people rightly figure that if they are going south, they want to stay south and see more than just one country. What a great combination! Belize for the coral reefs and Mayan ruins, and Costa Rica for the cloud forest. Three different airlines fly between the two, and on the quickest and cheapest schedules the

Each week I receive emails from guests re-ente

Cheers Restaurant, Belize

My favorite place to eat in Belize is Cheers Restaurant. I am a foodie, and it’s great. It is regular comfort food, not gourmet or trendy… you will love it. Cheers Restaurant is located on the Western Highway just a few miles past the Belize Zoo, on the south side of the road. It’s about 40 minutes from Belize City. So if you are going to the zoo, or continuing on through Belmopa

How to make a palm thatch roof

Last April while on our Belize island, I decided I wanted to create a center where guests can store their snorkel equipment. There was no central spot, and therefore this assorted gear was strewn all over the place, including the palm-shaded picnic table where the staff likes to eat their lunch! So I decided to turn an old SUP rack into a bunch of large shelves where people can put their mask, fin
