Top 10 All Inclusive Resorts In Belize

Belize All Inclusive Resorts

Table of Contents

What is an all inclusive resort? All inclusive vacations are a trending form of travel where all essentials are covered in the pre-paid booking price. Apart from your accommodation you receive three meals a day, soft drinks and most hard drinks, activities, entertainment and gratuities included in the price without having to pay extra for it. All inclusive resorts are popular in warm weather regions such as the Mediterranean and the Caribbean and are at the top of the list for couples and families looking for a vacation package for one set price with no surprise extra charges at checkout time. However not all inclusive resorts are the same and some packages may include more items than others. For example some all inclusive resorts in Belize may include a tour of the Maya Ruins in Belize, but understandably charge extra for a side trip to see Maya archaeology sites across the border in Guatemala or Mexico. All inclusive holiday resorts are at the upper end of accommodation facilities in Belize and will have clearly stated in their offerings what is included. If in doubt, ask.

Belize is the only English-speaking country on Central America’s Caribbean coast and is home to several all inclusive resorts. While Belize has many offshore islands and lush jungle inland, it does not have the mega resorts that clutter other destinations such as Mexico and the crowded Caribbean islands. Rather, careful planning with eco-tourism in mind has resulted in a an excellent variety of boutique resorts offering middle to luxury options for visitors. When inquiring it may be best to call or communicate with the resort or your travel agent and ask for their all inclusive packages. Each property has been visited by a Belize.com contributor and is our pick on the list of the Top 10 Belize All Inclusive Resorts.
