Why a Vacation in Belize is worthwhile!

By Mark Langan 1/13/2020 5 minutes

If you're looking for a unique destination for your next vacation, then look no further because a vacation in Belize will be the best decision you'll ever make! Imagine a country of vast rainforests filled with exotic wildlife, colorful tropical vegetation, and the majestic remnants of a fascinating ancient civilization.

Now combine that with some of the world’s loveliest beaches, its second-largest barrier reef, scores of little islands, and a long, unspoiled Caribbean coastline.

Then put those geographical wonders so close to each other that traveling between them is a couple of hours by land and mere minutes by air. And throw infamously friendly, English-speaking locals to make your travels and stays so pleasant you immediately feel right at home.

Welcome to Belize!

First time visitors marvel at how many things to see and do can be packed in a country about the size of New Jersey and returning guests (of which there are many) continue to find new attractions while enjoying those things they loved the last time around.

If marine activities interests you, then swimming, sailing, snorkeling, and diving in crystal clear Caribbean waters or canoeing down meandering rivers will suit your preferences! If not, hiking or horseback riding along lush jungle trails, exploring ancient Maya temples, enjoying vibrant Caribbean island nightlife and the freshest seafood imaginable, and ziplining through forest canopies should appeal to your desire for adventure! You’d be exhausted before the possibilities are!

Except for the fact that everything is so relaxed and easygoing in Belize – especially traveling between those beaches and jungles. 

With the inland western border only some 70 miles from the Caribbean coast, moving between these two different, delightful worlds is a breeze, thanks to the cooperative nature of Belize’s tourism industry. 

Inland resorts and hoteliers have always worked closely with their colleagues on the coast and cayes to help guests find accommodation best suited to their interests and budgets, as well as suggesting the best ways to get there.

And it works the same way going from coastal to inland resorts.

The Lodge at Chaa Creek

The Lodge at Chaa Creek is just one example of this cooperative approach.

Over the years, this family-owned and managed eco-resort built up a national network of travel industry colleagues that’s reflected in their all-inclusive Belize vacation packages, including the acclaimed “Rainforest to Reef” and other offerings.

For one set price – made surprisingly affordable by combining the assets and infrastructure of two resorts – guests can enjoy a jungle lodge experience and then be transported to a like-minded resort on Belize’s Caribbean coast, cayes and reef.

And for guests, “like-minded” means that they’ll enjoy the same levels of quality, care, casual luxury, and sustainable tourism that the partner resorts share.

Even if you haven’t opted for a vacation package, Chaa Creek’s Belize Inland Expeditions touring company has a fleet of vehicles driven by experienced guides ready to whisk you wherever and whenever you want to go.

For all spontaneous travelers, you can travel from the deepest of jungles to the coastal beaches easily with just a couple of phone calls. Everything is sorted for you from accommodations to activities. Just like that, you’re ready for another “only in Belize” experience!

It’s that easy!

There are many reasons why Belize has become such a sought-after travel destination in recent years. Stunning scenery, a wide range of accommodation options, a wealth of activities, an increasingly sophisticated culinary culture that blends Belize’s multiculturalism with fresh produce and seafood, and expeditions into the heartland of the ancient Maya civilization makes Belize such an excellent destination to visit.

And for many of us, the ability to hike through a pristine jungle after breakfast, and then enjoy a swim in warm turquoise Caribbean waters before dinner, sits at the top of the list.

...And, it is just one more reason to say, “Only in Belize!”
