Belize Holidays - Small but beautifully formed

For such a diminutive country, Belize certainly packs a lot into its borders. Given its history as the former British Honduras, there’s no language barrier, making it easier to get to know the locals from the Mayan-influenced communities of the interior to the African-Caribbean villages of the coast whilst on a luxury holiday to Belize.

Lush tropical vegetation and pine forests offer a natural habitat for many rare mammals, including the elusive jaguar, puma, ocelot and Baird’s tapir, as well as a myriad of birds, reptiles and insects. Perhaps even more well-known is Belize’s abundant marine life; the country is home to the world’s second largest coral reef, as well as the famous Blue Hole, a Mecca for divers.

Luxury holidays to Belize provide a wealth of different cultural influences to explore – from its indigenous cultures, such as those of the Maya and Garifuna, to the large Chinese, Indian and Lebanese communities. The Mayans were spread wide across this land, resulting in some stunning pyramids, such as Caracol, Lamanai and Xunantunich, as well as the mysterious site of Lubaantuun in the south.

We create beautiful, tailormade private holidays to Belize, enabling you to stay in the most gorgeous places – from lodges nestled in pine forests, to stunning private villas on idyllic white sand beaches fringed by blue ocean and coral reefs, to jungle lodges set among Mayan ruins. We have the expertise to create your perfect holiday to this stunning country, whether you wish to combine it with journeys to neighbouring Guatemala or Mexico, or simply head out on an action-packed family holiday to Belize. We can also offer you the very best guides, naturalists and historians to help you discover Belize’s hidden secrets and abundant wildlife.

We would love to hear from you. To find out more about tailormade private holidays to Belize, or to obtain inspiration for a holiday, please contact us by phone or e-mail, or complete our online enquiry form.
