This week on May 23rd, World Turtle Day was celebrated around the world. It’s the perfect time of year to learn more about these incredible species and raise awareness on turtle conservation. Belize is home to 3 species of sea turtle; the loggerhead, green, and hawksbill turtles. In Belize, sea turtle nesting season runs from May through to September.
One of the most important tips for visiting Belize for the first time is to plan in advance.
Belize is a beautiful and diverse country. A well-balanced itinerary should include a visit to its tropical rainforests to see the incredible wildlife, discover the ancient Mayan culture and explore the cayes, beaches and the ocean playground of the Belize Barrier Reef. Belize is an easy destination to create an experience that includes adventure, adrenaline-filled activities and plenty of relaxation time.
It's nearing the end of August and many of us are still soaking up summer, but with winter just around the corner, now is the time to start planning your escape from the upcoming cold season and ensure a stress-free warm Belize vacation.
Getting to Belize
Guest Chef Profile: Guest Chef Richard Samaniego Returns to Belize
We're thrilled to have Chef Richard Samaniego joining us in Belize this November. This is Richard’s second season with us, and he’ll be working with our cooks on developing creative new menus for our trips.
Last year we invited past guests to join us in Belize for a special departure that visited Lighthouse and Glovers Reef. The feedback we got was amazing, and the idea was born to develop a ‘double atoll adventure’. People loved being able to snorkel, sea kayak and explore these two remote reef systems in the same week!
