In this tiny nation – about the size of Massachusetts — explore world-class beaches, deep jungle habitats and dense forest without wasting a lot of time on travel. Among the destinations of Ambergris Caye, Placencia and Western Belize lies a family vacation that’s near impossible to replicate anywhere else.
Discover amazing eco-adventures in country that embodies sustainability. Whether you have wannabe Tarzans at home or a partner who relishes basking in the sun, each is bound to find their nirvana when visiting the three best regions in Belize.
Sail Away to Ambergris Caye with Belize Family Vacation Packages
Known as Belize’s darling, Ambergris Caye boasts sun-dappled treasures ready for the taking. Feel the bustling cacophony of San Pedro. The island’s only town exudes an energy you’ll feel the moment you set (bare) foot on the shore. To experience it fully, book your stay at the award-winning Victoria House Resort & Spa, San Pedro’s premier family stay.
Victoria House is a wide-open door to all the activities you’ll find both on and offshore. Your San Pedro itinerary will consist of renowned diving and snorkeling, a quick boat ride away from the resort’s dock. Glide alongside kaleidoscopic schools of parrotfish, brooding barracudas, and graceful eagle rays. You can even swim alongside sharks! But hold the ominous Jaws theme; these nurse sharks are docile, and perfect for hanging out with kids.
Apart from pure sun-and-sand fun, Victoria House provides families with the space they so direly need. The resort offers spacious accommodations with its two to five-bedroom villas. Each is sure to impress. Locally made wicker and mahogany furniture add a personal touch to each room. And Casa Playa Blanca and Casa Azul’s private pools are sure to keep the kids entertained for hours on end.
Find serenity on the Belize Mainland in Placencia
If you can’t get enough of the beach but want to enjoy it at a slower pace, make your way to Belize’s southeast coast. The region is home to its famous peninsula, Placencia, which holds some of the most stunning vistas in the country. Placencia sits about two hours’ driving or a 20-minute domestic flight away from the international airport. When looking for an unforgettable family experience, look no further than the celebrity-favorite Naia Resort & Spa.
The wellness-focused resort cultivates an environment of serenity and tranquility that your family is bound to benefit from. The luxurious living quarters of the two-bedroom beach house will ready each of you to face the day’s adventures. Whether that’s chocolate making, Maya ruin exploring, or hiking through Cockscomb Basin. Wind down from your high-energy day with some heart-opening yoga moves at the onsite yoga studio.
If that’s a little too calming for your kiddos, Naia Resort provides complimentary kayaks, paddleboards, and bicycles. Here, there are more ways than one to stay active. Besides, we all know a family that plays together stays together!
Bookend your day with a splash at your beach house’s private pool before venturing off to Belize’s wild side, Western Belize.
Embrace your Wild Side in Western Belize
Enveloped within broadleaves and pine, Western Belize speaks to the family’s untamed side that craves eco-adventures. Western Belize is for the family that wants a deeper connection to the lands they visit to form long-lasting bonds with the communities within. Each of these – and more – can be found when staying at the Lodge at Chaa Creek.
As Belize’s first eco-lodge, Chaa Creek has been hosting intrepid families for as long as Belize has welcomed travelers. Children often make a beeline toward the on-site Blue Morpho Butterfly exhibit where they learn the life cycles of these vibrant insects. Families also look forward to horseback riding through the property’s vast nature reserve, which houses chattering wildlife and historic Maya mounds hiding cultural wonders.
The lodge is tucked within the jungles outside of San Ignacio Town, which is considered a cultural Mecca. The town serves as a springboard for history-loving families where ancient Maya temples, historic bridges, and rich cultures are all within shouting distance. For more family-friendly fun, venture a little further to the Mountain Pine Ridge region. Here, the knowledgeable guides at Chaa Creek will show you where to find the best waterfalls, natural pools, and gaping caves.
