Luxury Belize: Mayan culture and Caribbean cayes

12 days from £3126pp
 

Private Journey

 

This is a short luxury private holiday in Belize, formerly British Honduras. Once the haunt of back-packers and homesick British soldiers, it is now a much-sought-after destination for lovers of nature and beautiful beaches. This English-speaking republic is unique - a cocktail of Creole, British colonial, indigenous Maya, Mennonite and Spanish cultures.  It’s tiny - a little larger than Wales – so it easy to sample its natural and cultural attractions in a short space of time.Your luxurious holiday visits just three places but yields a flavour of the variety of landscapes without arduous travelling. 

The coast is unmistakably Caribbean: silky white-sand beaches and coral atolls, palm trees, turquoise seas, laidback people, reggae rhythms and rum punch. Belize has the world’s second-largest barrier reef and the undersea world here is a theatre of exotic fish and other marine species living among the coral. Behind the coast in the back-country there are forested highlands such as the beautiful Mountain Pine Ridge, where you’ll stay at a top-of-the-range lodge conceived and owned by film director Francis Ford Coppola.
