Your "Un-Belizeable" Summer Vacation - 5 Summer Perks to Come Away to the Island + Summer Specials

Sunset Overwater Cabana Dock See yourself in Belize this summer!

Many people enjoy escaping to Belize during the winter months to enjoy the warm sunshine and ocean breezes. It really is no secret that Belize is a fantastic travel destination and more tourists are flocking to this hidden gem every year. But, did you know that summer is also a wonderful time to visit? Temperatures in Belize are comparable or even more mild than many places in the U.S. during the summer months, and ocean breezes and the shade of coconut trees offer much more relief than you are likely to find in your hometown – plus you will have the luxury of no responsibilities while taking it all in. Read on for our top 5 perks to visiting Belize this summer!

  • It's Grand Slam Fishing Season! Fishing here is excellent year-round, but the best times to catch the "Big Three" of tarpon, bonefish, and permit is in June, July, and August. When you catch all three of these fish, it's known as the "Grand Slam", which is how the fishing season got its name!We are fortunate to be located adjacent to the flats, close to the reef, and a short ride from the Belize River, so guests can enjoy a variety of fishing on their Caribbean vacation.
  • While there isn't a specific time of year that is best for scuba diving, many divers prefer the calmer waters of the Belizean summer. The water is pleasantly warm during the summer at 85°F, and the sea breeze tempers the heat a bit during this time.
  • Temperatures in Belize are comparable to many places in the U.S. during the summer months, and ocean breezes and the shade of coconut trees offer relief. 
  • While summer does mark the beginning of "rainy season", don't be alarmed! This season applies mostly to the mainland (the rain forest needs its rain to thrive after all!). Rain showers are typically brief and intermittent at the island, allowing you plenty of time to enjoy the sunshine!

During the summer months, Belize has less visitors which allows you the opportunity to have more privacy with fewer people while you explore mainland excursions and attractions such as the Maya Ruins.  And you'll find that going through customs & immigration is much faster – very second gained in paradise is a win! 

June marks the start of Belize's lobster season. During this time, you'll find a variety of lobster dishes being served during our farm-to-table, banquet style dining at the resort. 

In addition, Belizeans celebrate in four different parts of the country with Lobsterfest. San Pedro's Lobsterfest is one of the biggest celebrations offering free live music and discounted prices on drinks and lobster. The San Pedro Slam Excursion is a fun way to experience Belizean culture then return for a peaceful rest of your day! Cheers to the best summer yet!


Tell your true, "My fish was this big!" story from Belize!
Sink into the best of both worlds and experience jungle and sea in one trip!
Take your first steps together into paradise!

Top Belizean "Girls Trip" Getaway Guide | 2019

jump-in---girls-getaway Experience paradise with your besties!

Every lady needs a girl's weekend. With how crazy life is, quality time with friends doesn't happen as often as we'd like. Time with friends is essential for the soul just like sunshine, rest, and laughter. This time is scientifically proven to be good for you so grab your gals and pencil it in! 

Getting away with the girls is fun, but did you know it's also great for your health and well-being? It has been proven that strong friendships can extend life expectancy and lower chances of heart disease. In 2016, researchers found evidence that spending time with friends can increase the production of Oxycontin, the hormone our bodies make when we're happy!

Set a date: We know it can be difficult to work around everyone's schedules, which is why it's important to plan in advance (a year ahead of time is not out of the question!) and get a date set on the calendar. 4-5 nights with travel included seems to be the perfect amount of time for a getaway with the girls. It's not too short and not so long that it's hard for friends to commit to the trip.

​Choose a destination: Choosing your destination is the most exciting piece of planning, as it should be! There are a few things to consider during this phase of planning. Do you want to completely relax and spend your days lounging and chatting with friends, or are you looking for a little adventure? What accommodations are important? Do you want to spend time in a popular tourist destination, or does a place off the beaten path sound better?

"While we all love our families, it has been proven that friendship can extend life expectancy, lower chances of heart disease, and even help us better tolerate pain. Really!" Read more...

Find yourself... In the middle of nowhere...

Find yourself... in the middle of nowhere... Find yourself... in the middle of nowhere...

Our need to slow down and become more present in our day-to-day lives is more necessary than ever. This is why wellness travel is one of the fastest growing areas in the tourism industry.

Getting away can be essential to recharge and re-establish balance. While a simple vacation is a great way to relax, a study published in a 2016 article for Transitional Psychiatry found that people who participated in a six-day meditation retreat had fewer bouts of depression and stress-related symptoms. More specifically, yoga retreats are known to improve sleep, quality of life, cardiovascular fitness, anxiety, chronic pain relief, and strengthen the nervous system

Read on to learn about the benefits of wellness travel.

Nature allows you to unwind. Imagine basking in the warm sun, breathing in the clean air, and listening to the quiet breezes. You instantly enrich and reset the senses. Taking the time to be present in nature has shown to reduce the production of cortisol, which is our primary stress hormone.

Disconnect from technology: Unplugging may improve quality of sleep as well as your mood! putting down devices and outside distractors allows you to be fully present. Not many people know this (except our previous guests of course) so it is worth mentioning that one of the unique things about St. George's is that you can truly unplug during your stay. Wi-fi is available in the lounge area so you can check in with loved ones, but the rest of the resort is completely unplugged from the internet and TV. Guests love this quality!

Decompress and release stress: Taking a break from the daily hustle and bustle of life is essential for your mind to recharge. A 2013 study noted that more than 80% of Americans who were surveyed noticed significant drops in stress just after a day or two of traveling.

Spending time with like-minded people: Being surrounded by like-minded people who have similar goals and interests can provide you with encouragement and motivation.

Taking time for yourself: Wellness travel takes you out of your usual routine and mindset and really lets you focus on YOU. Give yourself the freedom to relax, unwind, and recharge. It may inspire you to take time out for yourself far more often than you already do!

Sounds good to us! Even on island time, we all individually take time to pause and take in this pristine land and seascape around us. We hope you join us to do the same!

Thirsty Thursday - Island Style

Relax with a tropical drink at St. George's Caye Resort Relax with a tropical drink at St. George's Caye Resort

 Happy Thirsty Thursday from the island! It's a beautiful day to spend an afternoon taking in the Caribbean views and ocean breezes while lying in one of our hammocks with a cocktail or ice cold, freshly squeezed juice in hand. No matter your beverage of choice, we have a little something for everyone!

At St. Georges, supporting the local economy is important to us. Fresh fish, fruits, vegetables, and juices are sourced locally and are served with pride at every meal! Our servers will even climb a tree to make your tropical island cocktail - it doesn't get fresher than that!

We serve the local beer of choice, Belikin, which is brewed "by Belizeans, for Belizeans." Varieties range from their flagship continental lager, Belikin, which is a special blend of Canadian pilsner malt and German hops, to their unique Caribbean brew, the Belikin Stout. The stout has a subtle blend of coffee, caramel, and chocolate flavors- it's a must-try in our book!

Looking for something a little more fruity? We've got you covered! Our world-class servers will treat you to a variety of fruity umbrella drinks such as the Coco Loco, Belize Rum Freeze, or the Dirty Banana (and many more!).

Want to make your own "Dirty Banana" at home? Try this recipe to bring you back to the island any time you please!

 Dirty Banana

1/4 to 1/2 cup ice cubes

1 1/2 ounces (1 standard shot) white rum

3/4 ounce (1/2 shot) Kahlua (or other coffee-flavored liqueur)

3/4 ounce (1/2 shot) banana-flavored liqueur

1 ounce (2 tablespoons) light cream

1 ounce (2 tablespoons) whole milk

1 ripe banana

Garnish: unpeeled banana slice



Directions

Gather the ingredients. Put 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of ice in the blender container. Add the remaining ingredients except for the garnish, cover, and blend until smooth, increasing the speed as necessary to thoroughly pulverize the ice. Pour the drink into a small hurricane glass, martini glass, or other cocktail glass. Cut a slit halfway through a banana wheel and hang it on the rim of the glass.

Serve and enjoy!

Upon your next visit to St. George's Caye Resort, stop by the Sand Bar Lounge inside the main lodge for an afternoon snack and check out our selection of wines, beer, cocktails, sodas, and juices. You can relax in a cushioned chair or ocean-facing swing and enjoy books, games, good conversation, ocean views, and complimentary wi-fi.

Your UnBelizeable Fish Story - But It's True!

Catch of the Day! Trophy fishing

Belize has some of the best game fishing in the world. As part of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef – the largest in the Western Hemisphere – the Belize Barrier Reef offers unmatched fishing opportunities. Some anglers tell us it is virtually impossible to go fishing in Belize and not catch something! No guarantees of course but those are pretty good odds to hope for.

An additional factor to consider when planning a successful trip, aside from the health of our local reefs and ecosystems, is to seek out the best local insider information about the best spots. Your guide will know the most populated areas and will work to take you to locations known to host the very fish that you seek, hopefully in huge abundance.

Read more about fishing with St. George's Caye Resort's Professional Valet Guides

          

Great weather, a relaxed atmosphere and plenty of action are all part of the Belize fishing experience. Some of the favorite sport fish in Belize are snook, tarpon, jack, barracuda, bonefish, snapper, permit, plus many more!

The local Belize info resource site has up to date information on seasons, population updates and also suggestions on timing for the perfect trip. They write in their fishing info article, "May, June, July, August and early September are considered to be the best fishing months here primarily because there are good numbers of the "Big Three" of Tarpon, Bonefish, and Permit available. Summer temperatures are in the low-to-mid-90s and a steady trade wind generally makes the weather very comfortable."

Read more about local game fishing in Belize

 A fun addition to your experience is Lionfish dive hunting. This invasive species has no natural predators and therefore hunting them is necessary to manage their population. Despite their eccentric exterior, they also happen to be a delicious treat. When filleted correctly to eliminate their poison, they are described as "white, flaky, mild, tender, and delicious". When our guests catch their game fish, we are happy to prepare them. Many guests will indulge in their catch of the day with just their group, or better yet, share with the whole resort group.

Be Good to Yourself 2019

Take the time this year to get away and balance Take the time this year to get away and balance

Most people know that the top New Year's resolutions made are for better health and balance of responsibilities with time to enjoy the important things. 

When thinking of health, many will run out and join the gym or pick up the latest Pilates video series with hopes of refining their body. What are other things that effect this overall goal? For many, living a fast paced life means there is little time to pause and enjoy the world around them. This is shown to drastically effect health adversely. 

At St. George's Caye Resort and surrounding destinations we see travelers for many reasons. Guests may be celebrating the beginning or rekindling of romance, bucket-list diving, seeking adventure, or just to escape from it all. 

Most importantly we see people begin their trip still wanting and needing to feel connected with their phones. Slowly but surely that "connection" become less and less important as they reconnect with life, environment and relationships. NBC News featured an article on 5 Scientifically Proven Health Benefits to Travel

With all of these compelling reason to travel and admittedly, a pretty sizable planet, how do you narrow where you are going this year?

If you thrive in an urban environment, you may want to travel to New York City or London. If you are meant to brave the wilderness, working to survive the elements, possibly Tanzania or Nepal suit your travel fancy. Conversely, if you wish to relax and be pampered while completely unplugging and enjoying adventures of a lifetime, Belize may be just the ticket.


Cheers and see you in the sun in 2019!

Video of the New Guest Dock at St. George's Caye Resort

Jump into the warm waters of Belize at St. George's Caye Resort

We're so excited to show you the recently enhanced guest dock at our resort! Last month we shared that the New Swimming Dock is Nearly Complete.

Our hard-working team has now finished the upgrades and the guest dock features spots to lay in the sun, tile roof for shade, and a hexagonal swimming platform. It's an ideal place to relax and take in the incredible views or go for a dip in the warm Caribbean. Grab some free snorkel gear and get to know the rays and fish that hang out in the calm shallow waters (about 4-6 feet deep).

Here's a 1-minute video where you can take a walk with us, from under the almond tree and across the beach and out onto the dock:

It was a calm and sunny morning about 6:15AM when this video was taken. Listen carefully and you can hear some of our resident birds greeting the sun-filled day. 

Doesn't it look relaxing?

Can you see yourself lounging on the dock, having a fruity cocktail delivered?

New Swimming Dock Nearly Complete!

Guest jumping off dock at St George's Caye Resort Belize

Just in time for a busy winter season in Belize, the new dock on the reef-side of our island is nearly complete. Guests of St. George's will soon have even more space for lounging in the sun and shade over the sea, and several platforms for easy swimming and snorkeling in the warm waters right off the dock. 

(Picture above is a guest jumping off of our old dock, unfortunately lost to the storm last year. The replacement is bigger and better!)

Here are a few images of the new dock in process:

 

 

 

The last image shows the dock nearly complete - with a guest boat arriving and friendly Oliver there to greet them. We're excited to see this new guest space come together and can't wait to share it with you!

Private Suites in the Villa – A New Oceanfront Experience at St. George’s!

SGCR-Villa_oceanfront-veranda-with-porch-swing

Located between the swimming pool and the Oceanfront Cabanas, The Villa features three private suites adjoining a large living room and veranda with expansive views of the Caribbean. Until now this space was used by the owner, and for occasional overflow and groups needing more than our 12 thatch cabanas.

But we can no longer keep this beautiful space and impressive view to ourselves…so we’re excited to announce the newly remodeled oceanfront villa and suites at St. George’s Caye Resort!

RENT A PRIVATE SUITE – OR THE ENTIRE VILLA

Starting this winter, each of the three air-conditioned suites – the Coral Suite, Dolphin Suite, and Captain’s Suite – is available to rent as a private room, or you can rent the entire Villa. With gorgeous Belizean hardwood floors, bright tropical accents, and sweeping ocean views from the living room and veranda, The Villa is the perfect space for a group of friends, two or three couples, or family to enjoy our island paradise together.

Just like the private cabanas, your private villa suite comes with coffee & fresh juice delivered each morning, your first rum punch on the house every day, unlimited use of kayaks, SUPs, sailboats, windsurf gear, and saline swimming pool, and all other resort amenities.
 

Let's go on a photo tour!

A NEW WAY TO EXPERIENCE OUR PRIVATE ISLAND PARADISE

We are excited to unveil this newly remodeled oceanfront space and invite guests to enjoy The Villa starting in December!

A Few of Our Favorite Honeymoon & Wedding Photos on St. George's Caye

Movie-Set-Wedding-Photo-on-St-Georges

We love looking at gorgeous wedding and honeymoon photos. Don't you?

Here we've rounded up our team's favorite photos of destination weddings and honeymoons at St. George's Caye Resort in Belize, our little island paradise. If you're looking for inspiration for a dream tropical wedding or honeymoon, you've come to the right place!

The jaw-dropping photo at the top of this post was taken at a wedding earlier this year by Conch Creative, a local Belize photography company that does amazing work. The clouds created a dramatic backdrop that looks like a movie set. Wow! 

3 of Our Favorite Honeymoon Photos:

 

 

2 More Awesome Wedding Photos

This photo was taken at sunset right after the couple said, "I do." So romantic!

And finally, our all-time favorite, nicknamed "The Rainbow Wedding" because the rainbow appeared right after the couple exchanged vows. (We wish we could order the weather to do that, but what a fine coincidence in timing!) 

 

We hope you enjoyed gazing at these beautiful photos of Belize weddings and honeymoons on our island. You can find even more photos in our website gallery and on Facebook and Instagram

Aerial Views of St George's Caye Resort Belize

First things first, a huge congratulations to our amazing team who makes this all possible. Without our staff, our resort would just be another resort. But with them - St. George's Caye is magic! And we love it when others agree.

Our little island resort in Belize was just recognized by the travel website TripExpert with a 2017 Experts' Choice Award and distinction as one of the Best of Belize. As their press release states, "Travelers can be confident that it is an outstanding choice for lodging in Belize."

What The Experts Say

These awards are based on endorsements by travel experts in both The Telegraph and Travel + Leisure magazine. Less than 2% of all hotels worldwide receive the honor. As the review in The Telegraph states, "This adults-only beachfront resort is the only place to stay and dine on this traffic-free, mile-long island close to the Belize Barrier Reef."

You can read the reviews here on our profile page on the TripExpert website. Then get in touch with Cap'n Ron to plan your visit and see what all the fuss is about! You deserve some R&R on a secluded island in the Caribbean.

Smaller is Better: Benefits of Private Tours in Belize

Belize-Cave-Tubing-1

When people visit our island resort in Belize, some folks just want to lay on the beach or by the pool all day. And that is fine with us! On our island, "doing nothing" is an activity. 

For the more active and adventuresome guests, St. George's offers amazing off-island tours and activities to explore other parts of Belize. These tours are guided and private for our guests only (small groups of 2-10 usually), giving you a personalized experience as you uncover the wonders of this beautiful and friendly country. When driving is required, you'll be in a small passenger van rather than a large bus and you'll always be able to hear your guide and ask questions.

 

Best Tours in Belize

Some of the most popular tours we offer include:

  • Lamanai Maya temple and ruins with jungle boat ride and wildlife viewing
  • San Pedro Slam - go snorkeling or diving at Hol Chan Marine Reserve and visit the restaurants, shops, and beach bars on "La Isla Bonita"
  • Cave Tubing & Zip-line - float down a jungle river and through caves, equipped with a headlamp; then whiz through the jungle canopy on a zip-line 

To provide our guests with a premier experience, we proudly have a licensed professional tour guide on staff, Cornel Staine. Knowledgeable, personable, and a great story teller, Cornel leads most of our small tours (for resort guests only!). When Cornel is not available, he schedules our guests' tours with a few select guides whom we know and trust. Cornel also meets most of our guests when they arrive at the airport and is a wealth of information as he drives you to the marina for your short boat ride to the resort. You can learn more about Cornel here.

 

Avoiding Crowds

Once on the island, the office staff, Jahnene and Oliver, will be work with you to schedule your tours, diving, spa treatments, and other activities so you get the most out of your time with us. You can pre-arrange tours when you reserve your stay, or wait and add activities when you are at the resort.

So that our guests get the best possible experience, we have a suggested weekly schedule for the off-island tours. Certain trips, like the guided tour of Lamanai and the fun-filled Cave Tubing & Zip-Line, are only offered on certain days when there are the fewer crowds. 

 

Everything Included

Since St. George's Caye is conveniently located only 7 miles off the shore of Belize City, your travel time back and forth for mainland tours is only about 20 minutes by private boat. Tours include all of your transportation once on the mainland, and your lunch and bottled water is provided too! Most tours leave the island between 7am and 8am (with breakfast provided) and return between 4pm and 5pm, with plenty of time to freshen up before dinner on the oceanfront dining porch. 

Private, personalized tours are just one of the many reasons it's great to stay at a small island resort with limited guests. You also get your choice of beach and pool chairs!
