POCKET GUIDE TO HOLIDAYS IN BELIZE
Nicknamed ‘La Isla Bonita’, Ambergris Caye is a tropical paradise and the country’s most popular destination. As such, it should not be missed on luxury holidays in Belize. Home to the Blue Hole and Belize Barrier Reef, both rich with an abundance of marine life, the island is a haven for divers. Spend endless days relaxing on the white-sand beaches, snorkelling, diving, or kayaking in the crystal-clear waters and soaking up the island’s laidback way of life.
On luxury Belize holidays, experience an underwater adventure like no other with a diving excursion in the legendary Blue Hole. A 400-feet deep sinkhole, it is a rich habitat for nurse sharks, reef sharks and even giant groupers. Also worth exploring is Halfmoon Caye, home to secluded beaches, untouched coral reefs, diverse marine life, and rare bird colonies. Snorkel and kayak in the crystal-clear water and relax on the endless stretches of sandy beach.
Our favourite time to enjoy luxury holidays to Belize is during the dry season from November to May. December marks the end of the wet season with visitors who’ve booked their holiday to the winter sun arriving to the postcard-perfect beaches and thriving greenery. While warm sunny skies are to be expected across the country, the type of weather visitors will experience varies region to region, which is why travel specialist knowledge is vital.
For the ultimate exploration of Central America, combine luxury Belize holidays with the highlights of Guatemala, resulting in a holiday filled with outstanding discoveries. Experience sleeping among the ancient Mayan ruins of Uaxactún, marvel at the ancient traditions of the villages of Lake Atitlán and appreciate the colour and soul of Antigua Guatemala. For that extra touch of luxury, experience a hideaway retreat on the shores of Lake Petén Itzá as well as a wonderful beach escape in Ambergris Caye.
