Step away from your daily routine to a special place in the sun. Imagine some soul-recharging beach time, but with added cultural experiences that give you a look at what life is like in Belize. Explore some of the best-preserved Mayan ruins anywhere, take in a Garifuna drumming lesson, discover a monkey sanctuary and remote jungle villages, and swim in the luxuriously warm waters off Caye Caulker. Introduce yourself to a different pace of life in Belize.

This is your chance to visit a part of Belize that has not yet hit the well-trodden tourist trail. Opt to rent a bike to explore the area or enjoy talking to the locals in what some call the friendliest village in Belize.
Enjoy the day in the laid-back village of Hopkins. Opt to visit nearby palmed Tobacco Caye and do some snorkelling, visit a wildlife sanctuary, or explore the area by bicycle.
Drive up the coast and visit an animal conservation centre before catching the ferry to Caye Caulker, a true tropical paradise.
Caye Caulker is a long thin limestone caye off the coast of Belize. Fewer than 2,000 people live here full-time – an eclectic mix of Mestizo, Maya, Garifuna, Creole, and Mennonites, along with a few hippies and retirees. The main street is a sandy pathway and people get around on foot, by bike or golf cart. Apart from eating some sensational seafood (lobster is a local specialty), the main activity is snorkelling and boating along the nearby Belize Barrier Reef.
Enjoy the day with option to join a full-day sailing and snorkelling trip to Hol Chan Marine Reserve and the Belize Barrier Reef or just indulge in some serious R&R. In the evening, enjoy a fun farewell dinner at a popular local restaurant.
The barrier reef off Caye Caulker is a true wonder of nature. Optional snorkel trips get you up close and personal with nurse sharks and rays, to name a few of the wondrous resident creatures.
Depart at any time.
