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.

Our Belize vacation packages are all-inclusive; and we regularly put specific trip dates on sale. All of our prices are per person because we are selling a sports package, not just a room in a hotel. Our packages include just about everything except airfare, so when a specific date is discounted 10 or 15%, you will go from about $230/night to $195-205/night, which adds up to over $200 per person for the full package. You can see which Belize vacation deals we are offering at any given time by visiting our website.

If you can’t fit your schedule to our sales calendar, you also might qualify for a group discount. If you are traveling with one other person for example, all you have to do is find two more friends to join you. Our group discounts start at four persons traveling together, go up again at nine, and for larger groups there are even larger discounts. You can view our discount group travel rates on our site.

If you have kids, they also might qualify for a deal. Kids 11 and under receive discounts, see our family vacations page. Kids under 6 receive a larger discount than kids between 7 and 11. Sometimes, for a family of four, you might get a lower rate if you call your kid and “adult” to receive the group discount for all, rather than receiving the kids discount for only one member of your group.

The other piece of the puzzle is your air to Belize. We watch Belize airfares closely and update our Belize flights page weekly. When we see a great deal, we blog about it here, or post it on our Facebook page. So if you subscribe to this blog or “like” our Facebook page, you can stay updated when Belize flights drop in price: http://www.facebook.com/belizeisland.
