10 Awesome Belize Summer Vacations to Book NOW

It’s never too early to decide on a summer vacation. Knowing you’ve made a plan can help all members of the family get through tough work and school days. Booking a Belize summer vacation is a no-brainer because there’s something every member of the family will love and isn’t that what summer vacations are all about?

1. Actun Tunichil Muknal Cave Tour.

 

Bring a change of clothing to tour this popular Mayan burial site. Discover stoneware, ceramics and skeletal remains within the cave that include one set of bones that actually sparkles. Why the change of clothing? Because to take this tour, you’ll have to cross deep water to reach the cave and you might want to swim, too!

2. Mountain Pine Ridge Tour.

A tour of Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve takes you to a wonderland of thick, green hardwood trees and terrain geologists say was once underwater. Spot roaming mountain lions, jaguars and a litany of birds before exploring Rio Frio Cave and Rio On pools to swim and rock climb before a visit to Thousand Feet Falls. Hiking shoes and swimsuits are a must.

3. Water Foot Caye.

Are you staying at Yok Ha Belize Island Resort ? You should. Staff can arrange day trips to Belize’s Mayan ruins, the Cockscomb Basin Preserve, a boat ride along the Sittee River or horseback riding through a rainforest. Do you love to fish, deep-sea dive or snorkel? You’re covered. If you’re staying there, Yok Ha staff will even lend you a kayak for the day.

4. Placencia Village.

This is not a one-day visit. Spend time on fabulous beaches where water sports are king, dive into the Shark Hole, take a Monkey River cruise and stop at Monkey River Village. Snorkel or kayak around Laughing Bird Caye or have your guide take you to Gladden Spit to spot whale sharks. Ask your Chabil Mar Resort concierge to book a tour of this remarkable area: http://www.chabilmarvillas.com/.

5. Cahal Pech and Xunantunich Maya Ruins.

If you’re staying at the Cahal Pech Village Resort, book this tour when you check in! Otherwise, visit http://www.cahalpech.com/belize-tours/cahal-pech-mayan-ruins.html to arrange a visit to the former home of Mayan royalty plus temples, residences, plazas and ball courts. Explore a burial chamber before departing. Add another half-day tour—river canoeing or horseback riding—if you like.

6. Ambergris Caye.

Ambergris Caye  makes an idyllic summer vacation venue because it’s a deep sea and scuba diver Mecca. The island is also rich with Mayan history and has incredible adventures and scenic views.  Stroll mysterious Mayan ruins and take photos of the Great Barrier Reef. Stay at Victoria House (http://www.victoria-house.com/) to be centrally located and you can leave the tour reservations to staff.

7. Cave Tubing.

 This should be number one on this list because it’s so popular with tourists! Arrange a tour with Ninebelize.com or your hotel concierge. Bring extra clothing for obvious reasons and expect to laugh a lot.

8. Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary.

It’s one of Belize’s greatest treasures: Cockscomb Sanctuary. Book with Roam Belize and be assured of a guide trained to answer every possible question. See the world’s premier jaguar preserve plus nature trails, mountains and waterfalls. Biodiversity is paramount to efforts of conservationists committed to keeping this 128,000 acre reserve pristine.

9. South Water Caye.

Make the Blue Marlin Beach Resort your home away from home at an affordable price when you vacation on South Water Caye. Perched atop Belize’s Great Barrier Reef, the marine life is exceptional and the kids will love turtle spotting at the island’s south end. If reconnecting with your family is your goal, this 15-acre island is small enough to make that happen.

10. Scuba Diving/Snorkeling the Belize Reef.

You owe it to yourself to spend a summer vacation diving and snorkeling Belize’s world-famous waters. Travel 10 to 20 miles by boat to find the best diving and snorkeling spots. Knowledgeable guides are eager to help identify fish, coral, plants and marine life. Sound good? Your summer vacation starts here: http://www.belizeglobe.com/2015/03/21/head-belize-summer/
