Caribbean Culture & Natural Beauty
Belize is, simply, one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Only in Belize can you find verdant rainforests teeming with wildlife, the Northern Hemisphere’s largest coral reef system, over 200 miles of gorgeous beaches, and some of the world’s most fascinating Mayan ruins. Ideally situated between the jungles of Central America and the Caribbean Sea, Belize contains a staggering amount of both cultural and ecological diversity. African, Asian, European, Hispanic, Mayan, and Caribbean cultures can all be found in this stunningly gorgeous country, also home to over 500 species of fish and over 570 species of birds.
Nestled in your Belize luxury villa rental, surrounded by turquoise-green seas and lush emerald forests, you’ll understand why locals refer to Belize as “the jewel.” You’ll have a blast hiking, zip lining, kayaking, snorkeling, and diving to your heart’s content – keep your eyes peeled for howler monkeys, iguanas, toucans, turtles, sharks, and sting rays. Our luxury villa rentals in Belize take full advantage of the area’s natural beauty with beachfront locations, freshwater pools, secret gardens, complimentary kayaks, and more.
Belize is also well known for its delicious chocolate, coffee, and locally made hot sauces, so make sure to take home a taste of your vacation. Be on the lookout for a bottle of Marie Sharp’s – whether it’s the renowned hot sauces or fresh, all natural jams and jellies, these Belize-made products are the best of the best.
Belize’s high season, from November to late April, coincides with chilly winter temperatures in the U.S. and Canada, making it a perfect warm-weather or holiday escape. If you’re planning your Belize villa rental for this popular travel time, be sure to make your reservation in advance. The off season runs the risk of rain, though typically only brief, afternoon showers.
