Relaxing & Secluded Vacation in Belize

Cayo Espanto Island ResortThis resort is a private island with only six villas, making it a very personal and private experience. The resort has its own chef, so all of our meals were enjoyed in our villa. The villa itself was super comfortable and beautiful, and featured its own private dock and beach area to lay out and relax in privacy. Each villa's guests are cared for by a staff team that only caters to your needs, so you can literally order drinks or food or whatever your heart desires whenever you wish. Each day, the chef offers a selection for each meal, or you can make your own specific requests (and everything is absolutely delicious). We enjoyed our meals in our villa, so it was incredibly relaxing to be able to feel secluded when we wanted and create our own schedule. In addition to being able to relax in the most luxurious of ways, the resort also makes it easy to find other fun activities to do while there. The resort has spa services that can be done in your villa, so you literally don't ever have to leave if you don't want to. If you want to explore, there are also numerous activities to satisfy these wishes. The island has sailboats and canoes for use whenever you wish. If you want to be more adventurous, the resort makes it easy to find trips and experiences to match your wishes. We went scuba diving at a nearby barrier reef, snorkeling with reef sharks, and visited the nearby town of San Pedro. All of this was scheduled through the resort so it was super easy to coordinate and made the excursions super relaxing and enjoyable. Overall, this resort and their staff caters perfectly to the vacation you dream of having. You can make it as relaxing and secluded, or as adventurous and active, as you wish. It was probably my favorite trip I've ever taken, and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a beachy vacation! -

Mexican Paradise Island “Isla Mujeres”

Go to playa NorteOur guide recommended us to go to the beach “Playa Norte” also known as “Playa Coco” or “Nautibeach”. We were told that it is the most beautiful beach in Mexico (maybe he even said in the world…not sure, though). So, of course we went there. It was definitely worth it, what a stunning place it is… - You can explore underwater museum during your snorkel tourOn the way to the island is also an underwater museum with as many as 5000 sculptures. -
