Where to Stay in Belize

Belize may be a tiny country, but it is packed with amazing experiences. Belize is most popular for its beautiful clear waters – providing the perfect environment for some excellent snorkeling and diving. For decades, travelers have flocked to Belize’s most popular beach area, Ambergris Caye. This region is home to numerous hotels, resorts, and lodges that all provide direct access to the white sandy beaches and blue waters. The night life is legendary and the wildlife (especially underwater) is plentiful. In order to fully experience this unique country, we also recommend playing and discovering in the lush, green Cayo District. This area of Belize is composed of tropical rainforest and vast cave systems that house ancient artifacts and tell a fascinating story about the Mayan culture. Visitors to this area often take many adventure tours that highlight the area’s ancient history and also show the intense natural beauty of the surrounding jungle. Another great region of Belize is Placencia – the more chilled-out beach option. Placencia has a great variety of hotels and the beaches are beautiful, but it’s a bit more relaxed and gives off more of a small town vibe than Ambergris Caye.
