Belize is located in Central America. It’s a small country of just 330,000 people from many different cultural backgrounds. Packed in this tiny country are endless options for exploring some of the planet’s finest examples of ancient Mayan culture and stunning nature. Here’s five ideas for a trip to Belize that are high on ecoluxury.

Explore The Belize Barrier Reef From Xanadu Island Resort

Part of the Meso American Reef System, the Belize Barrier Reef covers an impressive 237,962 acres. This area of stunning beauty is a UNESCO heritage site in part for the diverse number of reef types you’ll find when you visit. The perfect base for your reef trip is Xanadu Island Resort, an eco-friendly boutique accommodation certified by Green Globe. The resort is located on Ambergris Caye, Belize’s largest island surrounded by the Caribbean’s crystal blue waters.

From Xanadu Island Resorts, guests can take snorkeling tours in the Hol Chan Marine Reserve, home to stingrays and nurse sharks. During your visit, make sure to see Blue Hole National Monument. This giant ring of corals was famously visited by Jacques Cousteau in the early 1970s.

The resort is an easy cycle into the heart of San Pedro too, so it’s perfect for people who seek nightlife entertainment after a day of snorkeling or diving.
