With a Belize Vacation, You Make a Friend for Life

What defines your perfect beach holiday? If the picture postcard in your mind’s eye calls for that subtle and often elusive mix of natural beauty and barefoot-chic flair, you must consider a Belize vacation. It’s azure waters, secluded coves and lush rainforest—will tick all the right boxes.

Central America offers a totally different view of the Caribbean from the ones you’re used to—a travel locale you may not have considered or experienced yet, but will be captivated by when you do. Belize has a low-key, high-hip factor all its own, plus a dash of mystery mixed in with the familiarity of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula next door.

Relatively off the radar, with the lowest population density in Central America, a vacation in Belize has a little bit of everything—ancient ruins, distinct ecosystems, historic significance, culinary cachet, something for everyone. The multicultural makeup of people of Mayan, Mestizo, Kriol, Garifuna, East Indian, German, Arab and Chinese descent lends a unique and diverse cultural vibe. Throw in enchanting accents like black orchids, mahogany trees, toucans and tapirs, and you have a storybook vacation just waiting to roll out.

A Belize Vacation Offers World-Class Diving

With world-class scuba diving and fishing, and opportunities for every kind of paddling, sailing and boating imaginable, Belize is a water-sport paradise. Its barrier reef is the second largest in the world after Australia’s, perfect for underwater exploration and snorkeling adventure.

On land, the extreme biodiversity and distinct ecosystems of Belize—coastal mangroves, hardwood forests, wildlife reserves—deliver myriad ways to get back to nature, from the cenotes and caves right up into the mountains. The health benefits associated with ecotourism and its accompanying physical activity add another layer of merit to the country’s wellness-focused appeal.

Where to Stay in during Your Belize Vacation

If you’re ready to research a vacation in Belize, consider the Wyndham Grand Belize, Belize’s first five-star resort and spa, set to open in 2021 on Ambergris Caye. Its design was inspired by the canals of Venice, with a series of swimmable waterways winding throughout, comprising what will be the largest pool in the Caribbean. Amenities include three restaurants, a full gym and spa, meeting and event space, even gondola boat service to and from your door. Everything you need is right at your fingertips.

The all-suite Wyndham Grand Belize offers one- to three-bedroom condominiums, each independently owned and booked through a central reservation system when not in use. Owners benefit from stable rental revenues, long-term capital appreciation, appealing tax incentives and the worldwide marketing muscle of 77 million Wyndham Rewards Members.

Just Northeast of Belize, Ambergris Caye & San Pedro Await 

Ambergris Caye is an island peninsula extending from the south end of the Yucatan peninsula, just northeast of the Belize mainland. Though popular since the 1970s, the island is far from crowded, the majority of it wildlife and parkland preserves with very limited real-estate development. In fact, much of the Caye still looks like it did a century ago. The main town of San Pedro is the hub for shopping and fine dining, reached via high-speed ferry or by plane from Belize City, which is itself an easy flight from many major centres.

What is your travel future? Where do you see yourself relaxing, connecting with family, enjoying your time in the sun? If putting down roots in the Caribbean is a priority, Belize could well be your best foot forward, and the Wyndham Grand Belize your new home away from home.

Let’s bring that faraway look in your eye into focus. Take the virtual tour to consider the possibilities. Plan now to pave the way toward a safe and comfortable Caribbean adventure that you will treasure for many years to come.
