The former British Honduras will satisfy those who feel the need for the perfect beach. Take a water taxi from the West Indian flavoured Belize City and head out to the diving paradise of Ambergris Key. There are no large hotels on the island and barely any paved roads, but everyone has a boat, which comes quite handy because the Caribbean’s best diving reef is just off the coast. The locals speak English as their official language, so ordering that lobster at sunset from your favourite beach shack won’t be a problem. Perhaps that was one of the reasons why Ambergis Key was voted one of the best islands in the world by Islands Magazine. Fly into Belize city for less with Vayama’s deals to Central America and the Caribbean.

A Greenprint for Responsible Tourism

“[Belize] recognizes that its competitive edge is its cultural and natural heritage…and has in the past 12 months, put into place a sustainable tourism development. That’s a pretty bold step you won’t see in many countries around the world.”

There’s little evidence to visitors that any part of Belize is under threat. The jungles are lush and verdant, alive with macaws, toucans, parrots and howler monkeys. The water is teeming with fish, turtles and sea mammals.

“In many respects,” says Christ, [Belize] stands as a model… It’s not a secret, but a lot of people haven’t yet discovered it.”

And there it was, in Belize: the remnants of the Mayan empire.

After spending days and nights searching for a better deal, I gave up Tahiti and turned to the Caribbean. The beach is still beautiful. Hotels, there were many that were very luxurious but they just weren’t exotic enough for my liking. I wanted palm-thatched rooms with elegant wooden floors and furniture – at least something like that, and the atmosphere that tells me “you’re in the Caribbean!” Since I didn’t know much about the Caribbean, I just googled images of “Caribbean villas.” There was one that looked “okay” in Belize. Belize? Where is that? I further researched the place through travel magazines and websites along with other places like Curacao, Turks and Caicos, etc. They all looked similar so I didn’t mind where I go as long as it had somewhere exotic for me to stay.
