|It's YOUR vacation - live every moment of it to the full.
We can arrange transport from the Placencia or international airport to your vacation
rental, where you will be met by your personal concierge. We will give you an
orientation to the property and surrounding area, then go over anything extra you want
for the week. Enjoy welcome cocktails by the pool, then dinner at home or at one of the
local restaurants. Then why not venture onto the deck to enjoy the cooling seabreezes?
Relax around the pool, go for a swim in the sea, or kayak up the coast. Maybe take a
trip into the village of Placencia to do a little sightseeing, and to the must-do stop - an
ice-cream at Tutti Frutti gelateria. Back at the villa, watch the sun set over the Maya
mountains while enjoying a cocktail and appetisers. After dinner stroll down to the
beach and look at the stars – with little light pollution you will be amazed at how many
you can see.
For the fishermen, Belize offers some of the best bonefishing in the world – try your
hand at catching tarpon, bonefish and permit with one of our world class guides. If
you also hook a snapper, snook or barracuda, bring it home or even to one of the
restaurants for their chef to prepare on the grill for you. Alternatively, take a boat trip
down the Monkey River, where your guide can point out all sorts of wildlife, including
birds, crocodiles and of course the Howler Monkeys. On the way back to Placencia,
there is a good chance of spotting the giant but gentle manatees.
Take the opportunity to go for a sail! We can provide a monohull, catamaran,
powerboat or skiff experience. After a short transfer to the marina, you will set sail to
one of the many cays. There is fabulous snorkelling over coral reefs, with hundreds of
fish darting around. After lunch on board or on one of the cays, more snorkelling, then
enjoy the sea breezes on the cruise home. Back at the villa, sunset cocktails, then we
recommend visiting one of our favourite restaurants – Maya Beach Bistro – voted best
restaurant in the whole of Belize two years running.
Are you a certified scuba diver? Or would you like to try diving for the first time? We
can arrange that, no problem! Join the dive boat to Laughing Bird Cay, a National
Park, with amazing beaches, and fabulous snorkelling and diving. Your divemaster or
instructor will guide you right off the boat with the reef right there. Because this is a
protected area, there is an abundance of fish and corals. The dive boat will provide
lunch on the island, and time to relax and explore before a second dive in the
afternoon, and a trip back before sunset.
Take a trip inland, and visit the Mayan ruins of Xunantunich. This is a three hour drive
up the scenic Hummingbird Highway to the Cayo District. Your experienced guide will
tell you all about the Mayan culture, the historic monuments left behind, and will also
show you a variety of wildlife that inhabits the area. Back after a long day, take a
refreshing dip in the pool or sea.
Departure Day (Day 7)
After a final mouthwatering breakfast, you will need to pack your personal items, and
take those last photographs. An airport transfer can be arranged to take you to the
We look forward to welcoming you back for your next dream vacation!
