Our top 10 best Belize Blog posts — the ones that during this past season (Dec. – Mar.) have received the highest readership (some of these are posts from much earlier but they still continue to attract the highest number of readers).
So, I spent 6 days in Belize on a swift tour of lodging options in the country. I’ve worked in Belize for 26 years, but I had never done anything even close to that before. Usually I fly down, meet a group of our guests at the Biltmore, take them out to our island, stay 5 or so weeks to hang with almost 150 of our guests, and then fly directly home. I wasn’t super familiar with other places in the country. This trip made quite an impression on me as you can see if you read my posts over the past 2 weeks. We really saw a huge range of what is available in Belize for visitors, but still we only experienced a tiny portion of what’s out there.
All of this has percolated since I got back, and now I am ready—drum roll please—to present the BelizeAdventure.com Best of Belize awards! This is just MY opinion, mind you, but it’s an informed opinion nonetheless. And by the way, if you see something you like let me book it for you if you go!
Best Lodge in Belize Chaa Creek
Unbelievable place. Don’t miss it. Definitely one of those ‘do before you die’ places.
Best Single Accommodation Ian Anderson’s Treehouse Suites
You have to be in decent shape to get up to them, but it’s well worth it. You can’t imagine a better view.
Best Belize Travel Agent Barb’s Belize
Barb was one of the agents on our tour. She knew EVERYTHING. She was more of a guide than our guides.
Best Bathroom Machaca Hill
All the high-end lodges in Belize have fancy bathrooms, but Machaca Hill beat them all. Check out the photos elsewhere on this blog. Best craftsmanship we saw, and we saw a lot of amazing stuff!
Most Adventurous Inland Tour Guide
Bruno Kuppinger of Toledo Cave and Adventure Tours
Bruno is still exploring, get him to take you to a cave he hasn’t been to yet.
Most Over-the-Top Villa Villa Verano
It’s somewhat embarrassing to even give them an award, this place is so excessive. Stay here if you never want to go outside, but just want to look at the Caribbean.
Best Botanical Gardens Ian Anderson’s Jungle Lodge
Check out the photos elsewhere on this blog. He has a spectacular orchid collection.
Best Place for a Big Party Las Terrazas suite terrace, Ambergris Caye
My camera was dead that morning so I didn’t get a picture. You’ll have to take my word for it. Great view, wonderful outdoor sky-space.
