Over the past decade vacationers in search of sand and adventure have eagerly flocked to Central America, especially to the small country of Belize—beautiful, Caribbean-blessed Belize. Our clients return raving about their romantic and leisurely time exploring the many attractive cayes or exotic jungles. As English is Belize’s official language, navigation is relatively simple. We recommend clients visit during the dry season, from January to May. The rainy season occurs for much of the year, culminating with hurricane season from July to October.
Belize is home to some of the most attractive reefs in the Caribbean, and the second largest barrier reef in the world after Australia’s. There are small beaches in the southern part of the country and throughout the cayes, but the main draws are the snorkel and diving. Many vacationers opt for one of the many islands or peninsulas along the Caribbean: the elongated Ambergris Caye, the more relaxed Caye Caulker and Placencia, or the biologically diverse Turneffe Islands. To reach these we can arrange air transfers out from Belize City. There are also the slower but more unique water taxes.
Main attractions inland are Belize City and the many Mayan ruins that dot the jungles. Belize City keeps a historic museum known as the Old Belize Exhibit—an artistic display that offers a rare glimpse into 18th century colonial days. Older still are Belize’s ruins: the mystic Mayan city of Altun Ha, the lagoons around Lamanai ruins, and the dominating temples of Xunantunich are not to be missed—but you may have to choose just one to fit into your itinerary!
Willamette Intl Travel can help you arrange any number of activities that you want during your time in Belize—whether snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, cave tubing, zip-lining, etc. Several resorts allow you to book excursions before or on arrival. You may also opt to visit Belize Zoo with over 45 native species, or kayak downriver to spot howler monkeys, iguanas, turtles and exotic birds. Wherever you want to visit and whatever you want to do, our agents can make suitable arrangements to ensure a terrific and memorable vacation.
