Тhе аrtісlе highlights Belize dropping names of resorts in the mајоr tоurіѕt аttrасtіоnѕ іn vаrіоuѕ раrtѕ оf thе соuntrу. Belize has not got more press from the time when Prince Harry visited Belize. A sampler:
“Just down the Caribbean coast from the Yucatan with a fraction of the tourism, this Central American country on the world’s second largest living coral reef has been buzzing with new openings that are transforming this one-time backpacker haven into a luxury destination. Much of the activity has been focused in the southern town of Placencia, a laid-back fishing village with a new air strip and the world’s narrowest main street. In the last year Itz’ana Resort and Residences, a Hemingway-inspired retreat with 50+ cottages and suites finished in boho-chic decor and vintage finds by fashion-pack favorite Samuel Amoia, and the offshore Gladden Private Island, a rustic-luxe, 3,000-foot, two-bedroom villa, have joined Francis Ford Coppola’s pioneering Turtle Inn.
“The inland jungle region of the Cayo district is a hotspot for outdoorsy travelers, with a sprawling cave network, robust birding culture, and cenotes you can rappel into. Plus, a stay here can easily be combined with a few days on the coast. Local airline Tropic Air is the go-to for hopping around the country, though the region is just two hours by car from Belize City.
“In San Ignacio town, fuel up at Pop’s Restaurant, which serves some of the country’s best fry jacks, a local breakfast staple of fried tortilla dough served with sweet or savory sides, and Guava Limb, which mixes great cocktails. Then, get your adventure fix, which is the real reason you’re here. Hanna Stables arranges horseback-rides to the impressive Mayan ruins of Xunantunich. And wildlife lovers should check out the Green Iguana Conservation Project, where you can see the species up close and learn about preservation efforts. For cave excursions and tubing in the surrounding area, visit Belizing.com, a new service aggregating tour activities in the country. Ka’ana, a beloved luxury resort and spa just outside of town, is the place to stay.”
Our recommendation for Belize Tours is of course Belize Fun Tours.
