Say Yes to Self Care - Island Style

Spa---St.-Georges-Caye-Resort---Belize Set Your Sights on The Spa

Summer is winding down for many countries in the Northern Hemisphere. Kids are heading back to school, and the smell of fall is in the air. In the last two years, it has become even more important to balance physical and mental wellbeing. The season's change is a perfect time to start new routines, plan ahead, and get back to your self-pampering routines.

We thought it would be helpful to have a bit of a list for "self-care" island style.

  • Seaside Yoga - Yoga offers physical and mental health benefits for people of all ages. And, if you're going through an illness, recovering from surgery, or living with a chronic condition, yoga can become an integral part of your treatment and potentially hasten healing. The health benefits are further enhanced while performing your practice seaside. With sweeping views from either the dock or the beach, your senses are sure to be filled with joy, peace, and endorphins while moving through your meditations.
  • Reading Outdoors - Reading books benefits both your physical and mental health, and those benefits can last a lifetime. They begin in early childhood and continue through the senior years. Reading allows your mind to drift and let the story take you away. Add this to reading in a lazy hammock with the aroma of sea salt and fresh fruit in the air, and what better way to unwind and truly immerse yourself in peace.
  • Coral Reef Snorkeling – Exercise, including snorkeling, can help relieve stress and anxiety, according to the Mayo Clinic. The controlled mouth breathing required of snorkelers is similar to many of the meditative breathing techniques that seek to relax and calm the body. Snorkeling regularly may help you feel calmer and at ease through simple relaxation. Snorkeling itself improves overall strength and endurance, reduces stress, and burns about 300 calories an hour. Not to mention, Snorkeling allows beachgoers to experience the wonders of the ocean and encounter vibrant sea life that transforms the ocean floor into what seems like another planet. Observing sea life in its natural habitat can be very relaxing to snorkelers and help relieve sufferers of anxiety and attention deficit disorders. Guests rave about the world-class snorkeling at St. George's Caye Resort - Belize
  • Complimentary Water Sports - Water sports are very popular not only because of the adrenaline rush, while getting tanned and toned, but also because of several health benefits. Through this quiet experience, you breathe in fresh air and be one with nature. Watersports lifts your spirit up, sets you in a good mood, and keeps you refreshingly energized! And if you are a more health-conscious person, you will be glad to know of the following added health benefits that water sports offer.
  • Spa and Relaxation Treatments - "Going to a spa is a way of getting taken care of that is long-lasting and both physical and mental -- and we can carry that feeling of being cared for with us for a period of time. Very often that can help us cope better with stress," says NYU professor of psychiatry Virginia Sadock, MD. Moreover, she says, most spa treatments involve being touched, a key element in helping us relax and feel better. Our spa treatments range from deep tissue to hot stone… even head-to-toe treatments to delight and relax the senses.
  • Fresh Views – Air – Sunshine - Sunlight and darkness trigger the release of hormones in your brain. Exposure to sunlight is thought to increase the brain's release of a hormone called serotonin. Serotonin is associated with boosting mood and helping a person feel calm and focused. At night, darker lighting triggers the brain to make another hormone called melatonin. This hormone is responsible for helping you sleep. Additionally, researchers have noted a link between exposure to the sun and lower blood pressure levels, with reduced death rates from cardiovascular issues. They suggest that exposure to sunlight triggers the skin to release stores of nitrogen oxides, which cause arteries to dilate, lowering blood pressure, and may reduce the impact of metabolic syndrome.
  • Last, but certainly not least - Total Disconnection - A simple and direct way to disconnect is the "Resolve to take one full day off each week during which you do not touch your computer, check your Smartphone, or make any attempt to keep in touch with the world technology.", according to https://healthylivingdaily.net/.

This sounds simple enough, but what are the real health benefits of casual unplugging? Here are just a few:

Promotes an open-minded attitude - Improve social interaction - Strengthens the immune system - Reduces stress levels

We hope you take the time for yourself this coming year and let us pamper you in paradise for the ULTIMATE in self-care!

Witness the Gentle Giant - Manatee

manatee-cow-and-calf

On the island, we have been blessed with many things. We revel in the opportunity to serve incredible people, the ability to create experiences within the world around us, and also to live in this pristine, secluded, natural environment. While out snorkeling with guests this week, we enjoyed one of these natural wonders. We were able to capture a gentle Manatee in its natural environment. This is such a rare opportunity so we wanted to share! We wanted to take this opportunity to tell you a little more about conservation efforts for this incredible creature.

Manatees can be found in shallow, slow-moving rivers, estuaries, saltwater bays, canals, and coastal areas — particularly where seagrass beds or freshwater vegetation flourish. Manatees are a migratory species. Within the United States, they are concentrated in Florida in the winter.

Why is it important to save manatees?

It boils down to a fundamentally basic concept: Manatees are part of a system. If you remove any component from a system, there will be an effect on something else. For example, manatees could die if we kill most of the plants they depend on for food. On the other hand, manatees help control the vegetation that can obstruct Florida waterways. They also provide a benefit by processing the vegetation they eat and passing it back out into the environment as a form of fertilizer. Ecotourism forms the basis for a flourishing tourist industry in Florida. Close to 70,000 people visit Crystal River every year just to see and swim with manatees, thus helping the local economy. There is an aesthetic value to manatees as well. They are fun to watch and we can learn a lot from their non-aggressive, passive demeanor.

Protecting endangered and threatened species and restoring them to a secure status in the wild is the primary objective of the endangered species program of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, an agency of the Department of the Interior. The Endangered Species Web site can be accessed at endangered.fws.gov.

The USGS Florida Integrated Science Center administers the Sirenia Project, focused on long-term research on the West Indian manatee in Florida. More information on that project can be found at fl.biology.usgs.gov/Manatees/manatees.html. 

The Florida Manatee Recovery Plan was developed as a result of the Endangered Species Act and is coordinated by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS).

In October of 1989, Florida's Governor and Cabinet directed the state's wildlife agency to work with 13 "key" manatee counties in Florida to reduce injuries and deaths. These 13 counties were: Brevard, Broward, Citrus, Collier, Dade, Duval, Indian River, Lee, Martin, Palm Beach, St. Lucie, Sarasota, and Volusia. Over the years, these 13 county governments have worked with the state to develop site-specific boat speed zones to reduce the likelihood of watercraft collisions and to implement comprehensive manatee protection plans (MPP) for each county. Other conservation measures deemed important to saving manatees include research addressing biology, mortality, population and distribution, behavior, and habitat of manatees; implementation of management plans; posting of regulatory speed signs and levying of fines for excess speeds in designated areas; manatee education and public awareness programs; and public acquisition of critical habitat and creation of sanctuaries.

Top 10 Reasons to Travel To Belize this Fall

Overwater-Cabana---St.-Georges-Caye-Resort-Belize
As if anyone really needs a reason to travel to sunny Belize... But if you are on the edge of choosing our quaint and sunny little country, these TOP TENS may just help to break the tie! As much of the Northern Hemisphere is falling into Autumn, we offer an endless summer... endless epic sunrises, and sunsets, and service unparalleled by others! We look forward to seeing you in the sun! 

1. Need we point out the proximity to the Caribbean Sea? St. George's Caye is only 7 miles, over clear waters, from the mainland, so we literally offer 360° views of the incredible, teal-blue Caribbean Sea. This gives you the chance to eliminate almost a WHOLE DAY of travel while coming and going. Plus, our transfers are complimentary, so you save big money too!

2. We take you there! When you come as a guest of other locations in Belize, you are on your own to navigate, of course, you can do that while at St. George's too, but our specialty is knowing where to take you for the most incredible, authentic Belizean experience. You will be safe, certain, and sure to experience the best of Belize!

3. No language lessons needed. Most Belize citizens are tri-lingual, with English being the most often-spoken. There is a unique dialect here so you will want to listen closely, but it is the most fantastic attribute to know that when you come to our little country, we speak your language!

4. Getting around is a breeze. With tours leaving the island every day, we make sure you have the chance to see the sights, taste the tropics and take in the culture. If staying put is your preference, we do consider relaxation an "Island Approved Activity"

5. Take a holiday from crowds. As a secluded island, we are the only public business on the island. The rest of the island is populated by vacation homes that are sparsely placed on acres of property. You will feel like you have your own private island. Who can say "bucket list checked!"?

6. Belize is safe and easy to get to from many hubs. With our close attention to cleanliness and care for our guests, we ensure your most pleasant travel possible. There are direct flights from many hubs and some airline tickets are at an all-time low.

7. Leave your calculator home. The U.S.-to-Belize dollar conversion rate is $1 USD to $2 BZD, but since most businesses take U.S. currency, you might not have to remember it!

8. Your "to do" list could get longer in 2021. Archaeologists are always undertaking new Mayan excavation sites and if you have not visited all of Belize's seven World Heritage sites, make a decision to complete the list.

9. Expect to smile a lot. If the world ranked nations by the number of friendly smiles, spontaneous greetings and offers of help, there's no question that Belize would be at the top of the list in 2021 and beyond. Our friendly staff is there to meet and even exceed your every expectation. Be prepared to be WOWED!

10. Nobody will judge you! Do exactly as you please here without making apologies or excuses to anyone (unless you are not traveling alone!). Set a new hammock time record… Eat a as much of a dish that you love and don't think twice – then even eat desert! This is your time to indulge!

St. George's Caye Resort is located 7 miles by boat transfer from the Belize City marina. We are taking reservations for summer and fall, with our worry-free travel policies. We are filling fast so book soon! We look forward to seeing you in the sun!

    The Best of Belize - Travel Pulse Description

    Love-at-St.-Georges-Caye-Resort-Belize

    Travel Pulse is one of the main authorities on international travel. This article features so many of the wonders of our country and the reasons why our quaint destination offers so much in the way of lifelong memories from experiences you simply cannot get anywhere else. 

    "Deep in the forest of Belize ancient ruins of the Mayas. Though best known as a world-class snorkeling and diving location, Belize also offers spectacular natural attractions and the authenticity of a genuine Caribbean getaway. Nestled between Mexico and Guatemala on the Caribbean coast of Central America, Belize is one of the few remaining unspoiled places on earth.

    Offshore, Belize offers the longest barrier reef in this hemisphere, home to the Great Blue Hole, as well as hundreds of islands, and snorkel and dive locations. On land, Belize has hundreds of ancient Maya sites -- both excavated and jungle-covered -- as well as lush tropical rainforests with many species of birds, and exotic tropical flora and fauna.

    If you're looking for an adventurous vacation, Belize has it all, from soft to extreme play, from an adrenaline-charged experience zip-lining through jungle canopies, to exploring a mysterious cave or Mayan ruins, to lazily canoeing down a peaceful jungle river observing nature. Marine adventures are suited for all ages and activity levels, including scuba diving, snorkeling, wind or kite surfing, para-sailing, or cruising on a catamaran. The breathtaking colors of Belize's waters are an invitation to immerse yourself in nature for a safe and enjoyable adventure.

    Belize's history from ancient Maya to recent events are presented in museums, galleries, visitor centers, and street-side stalls, offering insight into the friendly Belizeans you will meet. And while you may not find the sophisticated nightlife of other vacation destinations, Belize's varied cultures, love of music and many holidays and celebrations give ample opportunity to relax your inhibitions and be one with the people of Belize.

    Belize is known for its simple yet flavorful cuisine. Most meals include rice and beans (usually red beans, not the black beans which are more common elsewhere in Latin America) and peppers -- the hotter, the better. The menus (At St. George's Caye Resort) also include fresh seafood and fresh fruits and vegetables from local markets...


    The Philip S.W. Goldson International Airport in Ladyville, about 10 miles from Belize City, serves American, Continental, Delta and US Airways, and is a two-hour flight from Miami, Houston and New Orleans. The best way to get from the airport is by taxi; although an airport bus service exists, it is infrequent and unreliable. Once in Belize City, arrangements can be made for a car rental or other transportation options. Belize City Airport also offers regional service to other cities in the country, as well as Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker.

    Belize has a tropical climate with pronounced wet and dry seasons, although there are significant variations in weather patterns by region. Temperatures vary according to elevation, proximity to the coast, and the moderating effects of the northeast trade winds off the Caribbean. Average temperatures in the coastal regions range from 75º in January to 81º in July. Temperatures are slightly higher inland, except for the southern highland plateaus, such as the Mountain Pine Ridge, where it is noticeably cooler year-round. Overall, the seasons are marked more by differences in humidity and rainfall than in temperature.

    Average rainfall varies considerably, ranging from 53 inches in the north and west to over 177 inches in the extreme south. The dry season is shorter in the south, normally only lasting from February to April. A shorter, less rainy period, known locally as the "little dry," usually occurs in late July or August, after the initial onset of the rainy season.

    The busier time of the year for travelers to Belize is November to May, which are the winter months of the Northern Hemisphere. Still, many visitors prefer the more quiet days of the summer months from June to October for their vacation in Belize. Both times of the year have their own unique attractions and the choice of when to visit is totally up to you, your budget, and the adventure you crave."

    We hope you enjoy this beautiful article from Travel Pulse and we can't wait to see you in the sun!

    In October of 2019, we offered the unique opportunity for families with children of all ages to come to the resort. It was a bit of a test pilot in deciding if we were going to offer this annually. And... the week was a wild success!  

    The resort has always been adults only, and the grounds are rustic, natural, and not always "baby proof", but the perfection of nature captured the attention of the children and sent them into awe!  Families that attended are still talking about their experiences to this day.

    So, we did decide to open the island to families once again, and we are truly looking forward to the return of little laughter and wide eyes at this incredible paradise! Our next family week will be October 16th - 24th, 2021. You can reserve directly by calling, texting, or WhatsApp at +1-507-380-9344. You can also email This email address is being protected from spambots.

    Scroll to read about one of the owner's experiences with her twin 5-year-olds at the resort. 

    "Last October we were able to take the kiddos (who just turned 5 at the time) to Belize. We have been on enough trips to know that typical vacations + kids does not = relaxation.

    However, Belize was different! The kids still talk about it with true joy and it is our absolute favorite family vacation of all time - authentic and natural experiences abound and true relaxation. For the first time since the kids were born my brain and body actually S..L..O..W..E..D down for days on end.

    Everything was just SIMPLE - no meal prep, no TV, limited internet, no traffic, no crowds, no rental car or taxi, no cleaning, no shows or tickets, no WORRIES... the pace was incredible and exactly what we all needed. We appeased our sense of adventure and play all while achieving complete internal relaxation.

    Since we are an adults-only resort, even as owners, we don't have the luxury of bringing the kids to the resort any time that we'd like. When the stars aligned and we were able to bring the kids, we felt the magic that the island held for families and immediately started dreaming of how to offer this as an option for other families.

    We will always be an adult-only resort but are beyond excited to establish a "family week" so we can share this incredible experience with others who want to embrace a trip like no other with their families." ❤️

    "Grand Slam" Game Fishing in Belize

    Fishing-in-the-Caribbean---St.-Georges-Caye-Resort-Belize

    Belize has world-class game fishing that is, in some cases only recently being discovered by anglers. This is a benefit, because the area is not over-fished, and still serves as a pristine opportunity to wrestle with some of the largest game fish in the world. 

     Located in Northern Central America, this English-speaking country is home to UNESCO's World Heritage Site the Barrier Reef – the largest in the Western Hemisphere and home for unmatched game fishing. This coastal country is an easy and sometimes direct hop from the United States and Canada. Belize is also home to hundreds of islands (Cayes "Keys") making for a variety of sites for lodging between fishing excursions.

    Catching the BIG ONE

    In Belize, a sport fisherman can pursue their dream of a "Grand Slam" of bonefish, tarpon, and permit in the same trip. We're 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.

    Cast the lagoons for snook or ladyfish, or troll the reef for kingfish or barracuda. Jig the bottom for snapper and grouper. Or meander up the Belize River. Whatever you choose, it is best to rely on guides for the best and safest fishing experiences. If you choose to stay with us at St. George's Caye, our professional guides are here to make your Belize fishing experience memorable.

    TARPON

    Did you know the shallow waters of Belize contain the only classic tarpon flats outside of Florida? Our flats are renowned for the opportunity to site cast to tarpon 12 months of the year. Tarpon numbers begin to increase in April and May and drop off in September or October, with the peak months being June, July, and August. Some resident tarpon stay throughout the year. Moon phases tend to affect tarpon more than other fish so the guideline is to fish around the new moon. But remember, this is only a guideline and plenty of folks catch tarpon at other times too.


    CHARTER TRIPS

    Whether you're a novice angler or an avid fly fisherman, you'll have an unrivaled experience on the water with our guides. You may add a fishing trip to any stay (we recommend reserving several weeks ahead). We also have Fishing Packages combining your room and meals with multiple days of fishing.

    Fishing trips include the use of guide's gear, completely outfitted, as well as bait and all assistance needed. (Feel free to bring your own gear, if you prefer.)

    Beverages included; lunch provided for full-day trips. Cleaning, preparation, and cooking of fish – no charge. (Permit, bonefish, and tarpon are always released; some snook, snapper, barracuda, and grouper may be kept for the table.)

    BELIZE PERMIT

    Permit are found on what is called "the bonefish flats" and on many of the tarpon flats as well. They are found in large schools and range from four to thirty pounds, with the majority in the range of eight to ten pounds. Jack crevalle, barracuda, cobia, and snook are also found on the flats and in the mangrove lagoons. Permit fishing tends to be more predictable when the prevailing winds are most consistent - generally in the winter, spring, and summer.

    BONEFISH

    The bonefish in the waters of Belize run from two to five pounds and are plentiful year-round. Most fly fishing for bonefish is done from the bow of the boat, but there are flats that may be waded as well.

    GRAND SLAM SEASON
    June, July, and August are considered the best overall fishing months because there are good numbers of permit, bonefish, and tarpon available. (Yes, summer! All rooms have a/c, the island has a nearly constant breeze, and airfares are the lowest all year.)

    FISHING OFF THE DOCKS

    Casting a line off our docks is a complimentary option – bring your own rod and reel, or check out free fishing gear with a member of our staff. We can also help with bait and finding the best spots to hook a snapper, grouper, or snook. (Please keep in mind finding adequate baitfish is dependent on tides and weather conditions.)

    Rest - Restore - Recharge - February 19-25, 2022

    Belize-2018-02143

    St. George's is excited to bring you our first hosted retreat courtesy of Horizons Retreats and Marni Henderson & Kelli Sol. Get registered for this incredible week of rest, restoring, and recharging. 

    When: February 19-25, 2022

    Where: Just 7 miles from the coast of Belize in Central America is St. George's Caye Resort. This secluded private island resort is sure to bring plenty of rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation. The island vibe is slow and easygoing. Belize is located in Central America, between Mexico and Guatemala, on the turquoise Caribbean Sea. We look out at the waves breaking over the beautiful Belize Barrier Reef from our resort.

    What to expect: Slow your mind, relax your body and expand your heart on this soul-satisfying retreat. Part adventure, a lot of play, plenty of self-discovery and relaxation, tons of nourishment, AND all deeply rejuvenating! Let the stress and heartache gently release into the ebb and flow of the warm Caribbean waters. While exploring ancient Mayan ruins, you realize that the weight of life has started to melt away. You hear the whispers of an old friend only to realize it is your wholehearted self welcoming you back. Your whole being feels: REFRESHED · RENEWED · INSPIRED

    A note from Marni:

    "This retreat is for all women…..looking for a magical retreat to restore your heart, body, mind, and spirit in beauty. I've been questioned many times about this just being for widows….no…there has always been a beautiful tapestry of women walking all sorts of life paths…..we come together in a common goal to rebuild and restore ourselves from the inside out!

    The week is filled with adventure, luscious nourishment, relaxation, time to disconnect from the routine and reconnect to you…..and a small group of other women. With time to pause and reflect, release and relax, heal and grow, we've thoughtfully planned the experience to follow the rhythm of the Caribbean waters and warm trade winds. I will guide us from beginning to end as we share in daily gatherings of self-inquiry, ceremonies, group reflection, plenty of laughter, tears, and dancing too. The journey continues after we return home as that is when much of our "transformation" occurs when we integrate the experience back into our daily lives. We will meet two more times on Zoom after we return home to support this process. You have many group and 2 one to one sessions with me making it for a well-rounded and truly personal retreat."

    With 3 spots left, we still have a $750 scholarship unclaimed!

    Top 4 Reasons To Plan Your Fall Travel To St. George's Caye

    Sunny windward side dock Pick your paradise vantage point!

    If you are like most, you are in awe with how fast this summer is going. Pretty soon, department stores will display back-to- school racks and coffee shops with be filled with the aroma of pumpkin spice lattes. While it doesn't seem like planning a fall vacation should even be within the wheel house at this time, it is a great time to get ahead with one last getaway of the year! Belize is a great destination for a shift of paradigm and although we are a bit biased, we wanted to highlight a few reasons to come away to visit us in the fall!

    CELEBRATIONS - Belizeans really know how to celebrate, and they go all out during this time of year with parties and festivals taking place during most of September. St. George's Caye Day is Sept. 10th , and it marks the beginning of celebration through Sept. 21st, which is Belize Independence Day. Check out some of the other events happening around Belize in September:

    St. George's Caye Day celebrates and commemorates a battle in 1798 when the Spanish were defeated by slaves, Baymen, and British soldiers. Official cultural ceremonies and parades take place all around Belize on this day.

     Belize Expo Marketplace will be held September 14th and 15th, 2019. Now in it's 23rd year, the expo has become one of the biggest events of the year in Belize. It is a 2 day market showcasing the best products made in Belize. Thousands of people will head to the expo to sample Belizean cuisine and purchase locally-produced goods.

    Independence Day is September 21st and is marked by the annual flag raising ceremony and the party continues throughout the day and into the evening with colorful parades, dancing, music, and many other fun activities. 

    WEATHER - September weather is "just right" averaging 81 degrees. You'll find plenty of sunshine, and early morning and late night showers. The jungles are in green season and are bursting with color and life!

    LESS CROWDED -  Although St. George's really never has crowds, things are a bit more laid back in Belize before the tropical vacation season ramps up. There are so many great excursions and popular sites, such as the Maya Ruins and the ATM Cave, are less populated during this time of year. It's also a great time to connect with the locals, who always warmly welcome visitors from other countries.

    THE KIDS ARE BACK IN SCHOOL - After a summer packed full of fun with your kids, it's time to take a quick getaway to refresh and recharge. While September in Belize is full of parties and celebrations, St. George's is tucked away from the main events and is a serene private island paradise where you can kick back and relax.

    You can take the "you time" that you have hoped for all summer. Just you and paradise. Let us do the rest!

    Drinks-overlooking-the-Sea---St.-Georges-Caye-Resort---Belize

    When you embark on an international trip, it is a thrilling event. You will evaluate where, when, and how and may even be on the fence about your plans. Just for you, we have come up with five ways to debate your destination.

    • Gauge your time to travel: If you have 4 nights, it may be wise to plan a trip with a short flight. You will also want to consider additional travel time once you have landed. We often receive the question about how close we are to the airport. One of our claims to fame is that we are the closest Caye (island) to the mainland, and offer complimentary – by-boat transfers, saving you almost a full day of travel to and from and almost $150 per couple in lieu of taking a small plane to other islands.
    • Decide your travel goals: Do you long for adventure? Or, do you revel in the idea of total relaxation? There are places that cater to both or, even a little of each. It is important to identify your travel goals so that when you return home, you feel like your vaca was a complete success! Just for a little food for thought, check out all the relaxation and adventure possible at St. George's Caye Resort.

      • Transportation
      • Excursions
      • Accommodation
      • Meals
      • Entertainment
      • Souvenirs
      • Miscellaneous
    • Get Recommendations from well-traveled friends or check reviews: If you have dozens of destinations on your list, it can be trickier to plan a vacation. It might help to speak with a friend who has traveled extensively, or research Google, Facebook, or Tripadvisor. Here are some questions to ask an experienced traveler for inspiration and recommendations:
      • When and why did you decide to travel?
      • What was the most memorable experience of your last trip?
      • What advice do you have for someone who wants to travel?
      • What inspires you when you travel?
      • What experiences do you like to have while you travel?
      • How important is knowing the local language?
      • What item would you never leave home?

    Where is Belize Anyway?

    Programs---Global-Service-Partnerships---St.-Georges-Caye-Belize

    Are you anticipating planning your next getaway? You literally have a world of options.

    We are, of course partial to our little cultural and ecological gem but we love hearing of our guest's other worldly travels. For those of you who hear the word "Belize" and wonder, "Where is that country anyway?" We want to give you lots of fun details about our small but fulfilling destination!

    Travelers often think of Belize for a quick trip because many US international airports offer direct flights. Houston, Atlanta, Miami and seasonally even chilly Minneapolis offer direct non-stop flights. Belize is also on the Central time zone so when traveling from the US, we are just a couple hours difference from most US states. 

    So, where is Belize Anyway?

    Belize is located on the eastern coast of Central America, just south of Mexico. Our warm climate, natural beauty, historical sites, along with the second-largest barrier reef in the world, make Belize an excellent vacation destination!

    Fast Facts about Belize

    • Belize has a population of 392,407 and has the lowest population density in Central America with 35 people per square mile.
    • Although Belize City is the largest city in the country (it is also the country's main port and industrial hub), the city of Belmopan is the capital of Belize.
    • Belize has around 450 islands called Cayes "(pronounced "keys").
    • Time Zone: Central Standard Time (CST) and does not observe daylight savings time.
    • Climate: Subtropical. Temperatures range from 50-95 degrees, with an average temperature of 80.
    • English is the official language of Belize, although almost all Belizeans speak several languages such as Spanish, Mayan, and Garifuna.
    • The U.S. Dollar is widely accepted throughout Belize. The Belize Dollar has a 2:1 exchange rate, which means your money goes further during your vacation!

     Top Tourist Attractions

    Lamanai Maya Ruins: Lamanai features three large pyramids, various restored stelae, and open plazas as well as a unique ball court.

    Great Blue Hole :The Great Blue Hole is an UNESCO World Heritage Site and remains one of the top dive sites in the world. St. George's offers a full-day dive trip to the Blue Hole for experienced and advanced divers.

    Ambergris Caye/San Pedro: This 25-mile long island is popular with the snorkeling and diving communities due to the easy access of the barrier reef. After your underwater adventures, explore San Pedro, Ambergris' main town. Here you'll find beachside restaurants, lounges, and shops! Here at St. George's, you can easily explore San Pedro by booking our San Pedro Slam excursion.

    Hol Chan Marine Reserve: This is a prime spot for snorkeling and diving due to the clear waters and abundant sea life. It is separated into four zones: mangroves, reef, sea-grass beds, and Shark Ray Alley. 

    How to get to Belize

    Visiting from the U.S.? Getting to Belize is easy-peasy! It's not unheard of to swing down for an extended weekend trip, as there are many direct flights out of hubs such as Dallas-Ft. Worth, Chicago, Miami, LA, and more. Many of these airlines fly to Belize daily, which makes it easier than ever to visit us!

    If you are flying in from Canada, check out airlines such as WestJet, Air Canada, and Avianca for

    When looking for flights, be sure to arrive at Phillip S.W. Goldson International Airport (BZE).

    Belize truly is a gem, and we hope you've now added it to your travel bucket list!

    My reservation had been held at St. George's Caye Resort in Belize since March 2020 and this seemed like the perfect place to unravel the tightly wound tension spring before it broke on its own. Realizing there would never be a perfect moment to re-emerge into travel, I started the process of re-booking my trip in late February 2021. I have gone through a couple of passports in my lifetime, but for the first time in my adult life, I was nervous to travel. Things in the world are different and new rules were in place. Despite the chatter of how, if, when, and what questions kept the uncertainty party going in my brain, I chose to let the power of imagination and dreaming forward lead the way. What kept me motivated while navigating the uncertainties of traveling in 2021 was staying focused on the end result. I could see myself totally refreshed, relaxed, and more importantly, a better human after slipping away to the ocean, sand, sunshine, delicious fresh food (Belizean rice and beans), no Wi-Fi, good human connection, adventure, and Mayan Ruins.

     The steps for travel to Belize were clearly laid out by the resort along with information from the Belize Tourism website. Of course, St. George's is already a Gold Standard Hotel and meets all the criteria for transportation, tour guiding, and safety protocols. From pre-departure arrangements with Oliver and Jahnene to Cordell taking us to the Health Clinic for the COVID test before leaving Belize, their staff made a return to travel well worth the wait. This in turn beautifully set the stage for a relaxing, nourishing, invigorating, easy, heart-swelling, and fear mode busting experience.

    This island is private, quaint, and calm which gives plenty of space for personal reflection, family connection, or visiting with other guests and staff. And there are so many options to play as well. With a menu that is pre-planned, it took the stress out of wondering what time, what to choose and where to go for each meal. Somehow, each time we sat down at our private table for four, not only was the food delicious, but they also met every one of our food requests without having to remind them. For people with diet accommodations, this is a huge relief, and it makes the meal experience so enjoyable.

    Because we also love to engage the local culture, we traveled inland to fulfill our Indiana Jones fantasy of exploring the Lamanai Mayan site, zip-lining through the jungle, and floating through magical river caves. Each leg was seamlessly curated by the staff leaving us to simply enjoy the diverse culture, experience the natural beauty, people, and history of Belize. Once again, following the guidelines for tourism in Belize, the staff made it easy for us to safely support what makes up such a large and important part of their economy.

    After sharing fascinating conversations with the tour guides on how they were so grateful to be working again, the common thread of human perseverance brought life into perspective.Our decision to travel there, despite all the uncertainty, was positively impacting their lives in a responsible and respectful way.The profound significance of the last year on ALL of humanity became so clear.As a collective, we were beginning to re-emerge together.

    This was the escape that I needed, and St. George's Caye – Belize was the perfect destination.

    IMG_8358

    Jumping into the beautiful teal blue Caribbean Sea with a life jacket was the first of many steps taken while choosing to re-emerge from the last year. I knew long before that moment that I had slipped into default survival mode but could not tell how far. It was apparent there would be an unpacking of coping skills that may have become habits based on fear. Although the trip was previously scheduled for March 2020, I intentionally kept my bags packed in plain sight as a reminder to someday TAKE THE TRIP. Since then, I have been cautiously peeking my head out from behind a metaphorical curtain to see when it was safe for travel. For the last 12 months, the world has navigated unprecedented circumstances and re-adjusted time and time again with hope, fear, loss, best effort, exhaustion, highs, lows, and everything in between. Back to the life jacket moment....

    Gloriously smiling with wind tousled hair and skin covered in briny crystals of the Caribbean Sea, I was mesmerized by the "turquoise highway" and the never-ending horizon. My eyes stretched to soak in the natural beauty as the boat stopped at our snorkeling spot just beyond an opening in the reef. And then, it started to happen. Like a ping pong ball bouncing between opposing thoughts of "what if" and "seriously, it is saltwater, you float", I was feeling my brain go through the back-and-forth contemplation of risk vs. benefit and a long list of potential scenarios. My body tensed up and my mind went into overdrive. I was nervous to get in the water. I had never thought twice about jumping into the ocean before that day so what was the big deal about throwing a life jacket on when jumping into the beautiful waters of Belize? Nothing....

    But it was a clear indicator of the shift that had occurred since the last time I was in the ocean. My fear center was the main attraction on stage right now and I knew it. I was working from a place of heightened caution. Until then, I had not realized how much caution had taken over my interactions with life. At that moment, it was fascinating to witness my fear response play out in an otherwise totally exciting and enjoyable experience.

    Choosing to enjoy myself and get in the water, I chose the middle road, grabbed a hold of the life jacket, and jumped in. The looks of accepting another embarrassing "Mom moment" covered the faces of my two boys patiently waiting in the ocean. It took three breaths with my face underwater to relax into the magical world of the Belize Barrier Reef. Like an old friend, the spark of playful curiosity quickly dissolved any fear as my attention shifted to the subtle outline in the sand of an enormous manta ray about 30 feet below.

    Moments later, I realized the life jacket was now in my way and I did not need it anymore. Along with all my tension and stress, the life jacket trailed behind in the wake of my flippers. The warm Caribbean waters started to wash away the heaviness, worry, fear and grief I had been holding onto for way too long. When I emerged to the surface, I realized how wonderful it felt to be here again. Not only was it fantastic to be here at St. George's Caye in Belize, but it was also amazing to feel once again inspired, hopeful, and alive.

    Now more than ever, taking the time to heal and recover is imperative to the health and well-being of humanity. I am so glad I grabbed the life jacket and jumped in! It is one of many steps taken to shift out of the survival mode and onto the road of re-emerging into life. Grab your life jacket and let's go!

    ​Top 10 Reasons to Travel to Belize in 2021 - St. George's Caye

    Kayaking-With-Dolphins---St.-Georges-Caye-Resort-Beliz_20210309-194651_1

    We've always been in love with our location and proximity to travelers. We are blessed with an incredible ecosystem and views to take your breath away. Here are a few more reasons to come away to the island in 2021 (or beyond). Please let us know if you have questions about travel at this time, and let us customize your stay and getaway!

    1. Close and Convenient – Belize is a destination that is relatively close to home. With many airport hubs offering direct flights, we could be just hours from your front door. To add to that, we are so fortunate to be nestled near crushed coral beaches, tropical jungles, and the teal blue waters of the Caribbean Sea. St. George's Caye is the closest caye (island) to the mainland and only a 25-minute boat ride from the marina. This proximity gives you the chance to eliminate almost a WHOLE DAY of travel while coming and going. Plus, our transfers are complimentary, so you save big money too!

    2.  Naturally socially distanced - Discover a new lodging experience by choosing our secluded island paradise, over possibly the more crowded San Pedro. Our island's resort promises incomparable privacy and intimacy. We also have a naturally spacious environment to allow for you and your travel mate or mates to enjoy paradise without a care!

    3. Indulge in different cuisine every night - Try world-class vegetarian fare, fancy seafood, savory rice, beans, and stew. You can't leave without trying fry jacks by the way…

    4.  We take you there - When you come as a guest of other locations in Belize, you are on your own to navigate, of course, you can do that while at St. George's too, but our specialty is knowing where to take you for the most incredible, authentic Belizean experience. You will be safe, sound, and sure to experience the best of Belize!

    5  No language lessons needed -Most Belize citizens are tri-lingual, with English being the most often-spoken. There is a unique dialect here so you will want to listen closely, but it is the most fantastic attribute to know that when you come to our little country, we speak your language!

    6.  Getting around is a breeze -With tours leaving the island every day, we make sure you have the chance to see the sights, taste the tropics and take in the culture. If staying put is your preference, we do consider relaxation an "Island Approved Activity."

    7.  Take a holiday from crowds - As a secluded island, we are the only public business on the island. The rest of the island is populated by vacation homes that are sparsely placed on acres of land. You will feel like you have your own private island. Who can say "bucket list checked"!?

    8.  Belize is easy to get to from Canada and the USA - Who knows if the year ahead will attract more carriers given Belize's growing reputation, and our stringent standards? There are direct flights from many hubs and airline tickets are at an all time low.

    9.  Leave your calculator home - The U.S.-to-Belize dollar conversion rate is $1 USD to $2 BZD, but since most businesses take U.S. currency, you might not have to remember it!

    10.  Expect to smile a lot - If the world ranked nations by the number of friendly smiles, spontaneous greetings and offers of help, there's no question that Belize would be at the top of the list in 2021 and beyond. Our friendly staff is there to meet and even exceed your every expectation. Be prepared to be WOWED!

    BONUS - Saturday night BBQ – This is a time to be social, or just sit back in your Adirondack chair and watch the flames dance with the moonlight on the sea in the background. This is one of our favorite times to connect with our gusts, and we have heard repeatedly that this is one of our guests' favorite memories! Island time always includes rest and relaxation, and reconnection.

    Thank you to OFTB Travel & Chris Galvan for this incredible blog and such beautiful imagery!! We truly enjoyed your stay and can't wait to be of service to you in the sun again very soon!

    Our Guests Say it Best | Reviews of Paradise

    Sailing-the-Sea---St.-Georges-Caye-Resort---Belize

    Belize is a country of natural abundance and vibrant colors. With incredible views, unlimited adventures, and the ultimate in relaxation, we feel so fortunate to be blessed with this little slice of paradise. Guests rave about these qualities, but more so, they feel connected through our island family team. The people serving you at St. George's Caye Resort, are unmatched in their readiness to make your stay the most rewarding, relaxing, and rejuvenating possible. Don't take our word for it... Our guests really do say it best. Check out some of these reviews and be immersed into the culture, color, and connection of the magic of the island! 

    Private Island Experience ☀☀☀☀☀ 

    This is exactly the type of resort we needed for a relaxing few days at the end of our tour around Belize.

    A place to disconnect and relax while having some amazing adventures. We got connected with Tim and Andrea before our stay and even before our trip started we had a really great impression on how it would go.

    We were picked up in Belize City by Wilbur by boat and delivered out to this private island to be excited by our overwater cabanas that were the first things we saw. Wilbur then took our bags directly to our room for us without a thought. Later in the trip, he took us back and forth to Belize City again and his service was always on point.

    Jahnene the manager greeted us at the island and gave us the tour around. We loved this property how it spanned from one ocean side of the island to the other. You could always find a perfect spot no matter the wind direction. We later found out that Jahnene was actually perfect at her job. She spent hours on the phone for us with different clinics organizing our Covid tests for our return to Canada. We are so grateful to have her there to relieve that stress for us. That aside, Jahnene came up to chat with us at every meal just to find out how she could make our stay better. She made it her mission to understand exactly what we needed to have the best time ever here. Thank you Jahnene!

    Adventure was the name of the game here and to name a few, we did three dives here and saw an abundance of healthy corals and creatures. Jose helped my girlfriend finish her open-water certification course, which she was actually very nervous about, but Jose was extremely patient and made her feel super relaxed about the whole process. Freddy was the same and always made sure he kept an eye on her. That was really all she needed to feel secure. It helped that we saw a beautiful turtle and a little nurse shark as they were super peaceful.

    Kayaks and paddleboards are free to use anytime and we took advantage of that as the back bay was so calm and beautiful. We say eagle rays and stingrays swimming under us and on our last day, I even got to kayak with dolphins. Apparently, this is a common thing, but a first for me. Three dolphins swam around me for over an hour very curious of what I was up to. All of this happened while enjoying an incredible sunset.

    Andy helped teach us how to use the Hobie Cat, which is a mini sailboat fit for 3 or 4 people, also free to use any time and once you get a quick lesson from Andy, you are good to journey around on your own if you want. He's a great teacher!

    Edison and Alex run the bar and deliver amazing plentiful amounts of food. We were well taken care of and they also played lots of games with us and built us an awesome bonfire twice for us and the other guests. One of the things we liked most about this place, was that the staff really created a communal feeling which made it easy to get to know other guests through fun activities. Nobody was left out unless they wanted to be which really added to our experience there.
    Hermit Crab races were especially a great idea haha.

    Thank you everyone and to the other awesome guests for making our stay amazing! Thank you to Cornell for driving us around in the city to get everything we needed as well.

    Incredible Staff ☀☀☀☀☀

    The resort was beautiful, the cabanas were enjoyable, however the staff made the trip ever better. Always pleasant and willing to help without being hovering over you. From Jahnene, Oliver, Edison, Alex, Melvin to Cornell our tour guide, everyone was amazing and we are very appreciative to them for making our stay so wonderful. A notable mention is the Chef - every meal prepared was fantastic!! Extremely tasteful, portion sizes perfect and willing to accommodate any dietary need.

    Belizean Paradise ☀☀☀☀☀

    We arrived into Belize on Oct. 25, 2020. Our airport transfer driver, Cornell, was super friendly, and showed us the interesting sights on the way to the dock. It was really neat to hear about the history of Belize, the Belizean culture, and historical sights. Once we arrived at the dock, our bags were loaded onto the water taxi and we were on our way to the island. The boat operator was very kind and helpful. Once we arrived at the dock of St, Georges Caye, we were greeted and our bags were taken to our cabana. We went to the office to check in and get our keys. Jeanine (spelling incorrect) was so kind and helpful. She went over our activities that we reserved with us and guided us back to our cabana. We arrived a bit late for lunch, but they did have plates made for us and they were promptly delivered to our room. Delicious! The cabana was beautiful. We had one of the over the water cabanas. Perfect for viewing the amazing Belizean sunsets. I can't say enough about the staff that worked during our visit. Edison was so kind and fun to be around. Oliver, was helpful, funny and also very kind and fun to hang around a chat with. The Scuba guides, Freddie and Jose were amazing. Very vigilant on keeping an eye on a first time diver. The fishing guide, Bones, was very good at knowing the exact place to go catch the best fish. What an amazing haul of fish they caught, If you plan to go fishing, please ask for Bones. He will not disappoint you. The chef cooked impeccable meals. I had things I had never tasted before. Everything was delicious. Alex was a wonderful server and attended to every request. The massage therapist is amazing and you will be so relaxed when you are done, the stress just melts away, Everyone that worked during out stay, Oct 25-30, 2020, was amazing! I will definitely be back. I feel like I made friends with the staff and look forward to seeing them again. Would love to meet Tim the owner. He went above and beyond to help make our dream vacation a reality. Thank you to everyone that helped make our stay unforgettable! Y'all are amazing! I can't wait to see you again! If you are considering a vacation, please check out St. George's Caye Resort. It will not disappoint you! I felt very pampered and well taken care of. Thank you to everyone! See you again, soon! Chris and Jaimee

    St. George's Caye Scuba Diving - A Guest's Perspective

    St.-Georges-Caye-Resort-from-the-sky Thank you so much OFTB Travel for this incredible blog and pics

    We had snorkeled in Belize before and discovered a very small amount of their immense barrier reef, but this time we were ready to go down into the depths to see more of the beautiful creatures and healthy corals.

    If you could see all that life thriving at the surface level, imagine what we might find this time with Scuba Diving.

    Last year, in Panama I was able to get certified as an open-water diver and on this trip, it was my girlfriend, Mala's turn as she still had some skills to complete.

    We headed out for our first dive at St. George's Caye, a small island positioned right in between Belize City and a very undisturbed part of the reef. This same reef spans from the area where Belize meets Mexico all the way down to Roatan in Honduras. For me, just saying "the reef" doesn't do it justice without the explanation of its greatness. In Belize, they say that it is considered the second largest barrier reef in the world, but as the Great Barrier Reef has been affected so much by global change, nearly half of it is dead or bleached. This means that Belize's barrier reef is actually the largest living barrier reef in the world.

     A 15-minute boat ride from St. George's Caye and we were ready to explore this underwater world.

    Jose had given Mala some very clear direction to make sure she felt comfortable with all her gear and we jumped in to immediately be comforted by the abundance of life, teeming all around us. Any nerves or worries that we had in mind before were swept away as all of our attention was taken by the sheer awe of the endless reef.

    We began swimming and checking off Mala's needed skills. Along the way seeing more colours than we ever did snorkeling. Jose noticed how calm the ocean made us. It had been calling us from cold Canada for a long time and finally, we were fully immersed.

    Beauty at every sight and the peaceful silence of blowing bubbles up to the surface. As we swam along slowly with the soft current, we saw many interesting creatures.

    The reef had many cavernous areas and structured creviced pathways for swimming through. In many of these caves and crevices we found lobsters and crabs claiming them as homes.

    In one of the large crevices we spotted a school of large jacks that swam in a tornado pattern and didn't seem to be bothered by our presence. Everything there acted as if it had never been introduced to human life and therefore, had no reason to fear it.

     This brings us to the turtle. At first, we saw its silhouette floating at a distance, but as it spotted us, it decided to come take a closer look. We sat in one place patiently allowing it to make its move and this curious turtle came right up within an arm's length. It drifted by peacefully checking us out and then continued on its way. We couldn't believe that this turtle would be so considerate as to allow us to get such great pictures of him.

    At around the half way point, we found a sleepy nurse shark laying motionless between two large rocks. As it spotted us, it decided that we were bigger so it swam out in a beautiful display of its reign over the reef.

    Mala completed the rest of her required skills and felt confident as a newly appointed open-water diver.

    On the way back to the boat, we took in as much of the colourful life as we could, but later decided that one dive was just not enough. We decided to do two more dives from St. George's Caye and everytime, it felt like a new world.

    There is something so free about breathing underwater and discovering a completely new habitat that is indescribable until you experience it for yourself.

    Never pass on the opportunity to dive, if you come across one. Any nerves will be swallowed by the sea once you get in. At St. George's Caye, you can't go wrong when in comes to diving. Everything from the staff and equipment, to the beautiful coral reef is world class.

    This new underwater world is just waiting to be explored.

    Happy swimming!

    7 Reasons Destination Weddings are the Best

    destination-wedding-beach-belize-islandjpg

    You're engaged! Congratulations! After popping the question, there are so many exciting decisions to make in the wedding planning process! One of the very first (and important!) decisions to make is to choose whether your wedding will be held locally or at a destination of your choosing. These days, it is getting more and more complicated to host your wedding at local venues, and the average bride or groom has rescheduled their meeting up to four times in the last 12 months. That is not only extremely expensive, but it also has to be very annoying. St. George's Caye Resort offers the opportunity to get away from it all and still be naturally distanced with your loved ones. We are taking more and more wedding and group bookings these days as people are looking for a way to be together. 

    Belize offers a way for your guests to couple their support for you with a trip to last a lifetime and a celebration your guests will always remember!

    So what's so great about destination weddings? We're so glad you asked! Read on for seven reasons why we think they are the best!

    1. Does it get any better than extending the celebration over a few days? On average, guests will stay 3 or more days at the wedding location. Couples will have plenty of opportunities to celebrate with their guests over multiple days and can host pre and post-wedding activities such as dinners together, lounging by the pool, spa treatments, and excursions such as fishing or zip lining!

    2. The guest list for destination weddings tends to be smaller and more intimate, with an average guest count of 38. Your guests will be your closest family and friends, and you'll get quality time with each one of them- especially when everyone is staying at the same resort.

    3. When you plan a destination wedding, you can leave the details to the on-site experts. Most resorts will have a planner assigned to arrange all of the needed paperwork, officiant, and other important details of your day. This makes planning a breeze!

    4. Travel to a new place! Is an overwater bungalow on your bucket list? Have you always wanted to dip your toes in the ocean? Experience the culture of another country or an area of your own country? You can literally choose any destination your heart desires, and spend as much time as you'd like exploring before and after your celebration!

    5. Stay for your honeymoon! A destination wedding basically doubles as a wedding and a vacation. Once your guests have gone home, it's easy to continue your honeymoon at the same location! Bonus- you could split your time and jet off to another location and experience two different honeymoon locations!

    6. Your photos will be incredible! One of the reasons couples choose a destination wedding is for a gorgeous location. Whether that's a tropical beach or in the middle of the mountains, you're pretty much guaranteed an amazing backdrop for your wedding!

    7. Save money with a destination wedding. According to The Knot, the national average cost of a wedding in 2018 was $33,931. All weddings are unique, so costs can vary greatly from person to person, but smaller, more intimate destination weddings tend to cost less than a traditional celebration.

    Weddings at St. George's Caye Resort 

    We have the perfect backdrop for your celebration right here at St. George's Caye Resort! Our little slice of paradise is abundant with incredible ceremony settings from the beach to our gardens! 

    Our experienced coordinator makes planning easy and will arrange all of the needed paperwork and an officiant, as well as help you obtain your Belize marriage license and select local vendors for your big day.

    We also offer an online gift registry- choose the resort and Belize experiences you'd like to receive as gifts from family and friends!

    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. Navigating new ways of living have made it more vital to practice healthy balance. 

    Getting away can be essential to recharge and re-establish your sense of self. While a simple vacation is a great way to relax, a study published in an 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

    With the ability to naturally socially distance, wellness can be practiced with peace of mind. 

    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!

    "Un-Belizeable" Summer Vacation - 5 Reasons to Come Away this Summer

    Sunset Overwater Cabana Dock See yourself in Belize this summer!

    With the New Year underway and 2021 in full swing, it is a great time to plan for the future and give yourself something incredible to look forward to.

    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 fewer 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 – the 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!

    We are here when you are ready to travel again. The world will once again be connected and we can't wait to #seeyouinthesun! With our "Protect your Plans" easy booking policies, you will rest assured that you can look forward to the future!

    It's Been a Year... Dreaming of St. Georges Caye

    Todd_Avison_large_PANO_St._Georges_Caye_-Resort_Belize

    So, it has been a year. A year exactly since we first visited St. Georges Caye Resort in Belize. This week started with us two couples exchanging pictures over Messenger of our time on the island. A time that has left a remarkable imprint on our souls. Seeing the photo memories of our trip to Belize has brought back a flood of emotions. Emotions of pure relaxation, emotions of yearning to go back and emotions of a bond that deepened between a group of friends that very few experiences can.

    It has been a year. Our World feels a little different since our visit in November 2019. We all know the challenges we face. Challenges of health, politics, what we believe and how we interact as a community. One of the things I am always thinking about is what if we took a step back? What if we got out of our everyday and got some perspective? To take some time with the people closest to us. Get off of the constant social media stream and stresses of the day to day. A sort of call to 'Disconnect to Reconnect' mantra. It's ironic that the very place I found a year ago, to do just that, is what I write about today…

    From the minute you step off the boat and on to the shores of St Georges Caye Resort you get the feeling of comfort and relaxation. We have been to many resorts and the overarching theme is to present you with all the ways to relax. All the ways to enjoy and make the most of your vacation. Not at St Georges. They welcome you like a family member they haven't seen in a while. They greet you, get you acquainted and then get out of your way so you can experience Belize through your own eyes. Past resort experiences fill our mind's eye with pools and parties. On this little slice of paradise, it is something totally different.

    I must admit, it took a day or two to get used to leaving my phone alone. There is WIFI there, but it is pretty much limited to the main lodge. It is nice to connect with the kids back home and check in on any work emails (hey, I am self-employed so, you know). Other than that, you are disconnected for the constant buzz in your pocket. The phones became our cameras. Not a tool of distraction. We even tested the waterproofness after a little kayak tomfoolery!

    On previous vacations we have always taken advantage of the adventures and excursions and St Georges Caye has some fantastic options. Or so we are told, we fell so in love with being on the island that we did not want to leave! We opted for snorkelling at the reef, paddle boarding around the island and kayaking with the dolphins. Any of the stress we had upon arrival had melted into the ocean and been washed away by the salt water.

    Our daily rhythm changed during our stay. Normally I am a night owl and not a morning person. Because of being so close to the Equator the sun sets earlier at around 7:30-8pm and rises earlier at around 5:30am. What we found is that when in a place void of much artificial light our bodies defaulted back to our natural circadian rhythm. By mid-trip we found ourselves going to bed as early as 8:30pm and waking with the sun. Fresh coffee and fresh orange juice in hand. No phone to check, no news feed. Just silence and sun. Total relaxation.

    As I write this, I am feeling a strong pull back to St. Georges Caye. Not just the place but the people. People make the place and in the case of St Georges Caye this fully rings true. The group of people that make St. Georges Caye so special have been working at the resort for many years. You can see they get joy in sharing Belize with guests and meeting new people. Oliver with his charismatic personality and his ability to make your stay unique is un-matchable. Jahnene has a calm about her as she tends to the details of your stay. She handles requests with ease and comfort. Again, adding to the relaxing culture that is embedded into the island.

    It has been a year for sure. A year we can remember of turmoil, change, and doubt. Or it can be a year where we disconnect to reconnect. A year where we're strengthening the bonds with those closest to us. A year where we choose to relax, gain some perspective, and move forward with a smile on our face. A year where we get back to St. Georges Caye Resort!

    Our Guests Say it Best - The Sweetest Honeymoon in Belize

    Seaside-at-St.-Georges-Caye-Resort---Beliz_20201116-022510_1

    Our guests truly say it best! We are so grateful for all of our guests who come to our secluded island paradise, but this review is so incredible. We love all kinds of love, and are so happy to have hosted this awesome couple for the beginning of their lives together! 

    Alexandra Porte - November 2020 - Google Reviews 5/5

    Exceeded my expectations!!! My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon in October 2020 and couldn't be happier with this resort. We stayed in a beautiful overwater bungalow and woke up to a tray of tea and freshly squeezed Belizean orange juice every morning that was delivered to our front porch. 

    We enjoyed watching tropical fish, rays, and small nurse sharks swim around the docks. The resort staff provided outstanding customer service and were so accommodating. The restaurant kept us well fed with an amazing breakfast menu, full lunch, snacks, and four-course dinners every day. The food was delicious, and the cocktails are simply divine. The chef even cooked us up our catch of the day after our fishing trip.

    The staff will even climb a palm tree to retrieve a coconut and make you a true island coconut cocktail drink! There are always kayaks, paddle boats, and sailboats ready to go. Wonderful coral reef snorkeling and scuba spots that are very close to the island. 

    Concierge set us up with some amazing excursions to the mainland. The resort tour guide took us on an exciting jungle river cruise, where we saw crocodiles, iguanas, and great blue herons. We saw the Mayan ruins and went zip lining and cave tubing. With all the exciting adventures, we still got relaxing time by the pool or in the hammock on the porch.

    Spent the evenings sitting on the dock sipping champagne and watching barracuda and tarpons swim around. Such an amazing vacation, wish we had more than just one week because we couldn't fit in all the excursions the resort offered. 

    The mainland didn't have their rum tasting place open yet. But the resort bartender set up a rum tasting for us on the island and we had a bonfire on the beach that night with the other guests, so that made up for it! We will be back to this resort! Highly recommend!!!
