The Island Life - Belize

Invent Your Adventure - Relax with Island Time

Kayaking-Adventure---St.-Georges-Caye-Resort-Belize Thank you to Alisa and Cole for joining us on the island and for the beautiful pics featured in this article.

Imagine lounging in a hammock looking out into the Caribbean Sea or experiencing the thrill of the jungle from the canopy on your zipline. Whether you are an adventure seeker, or truly just need to relax, unwind, and be pampered, we've got you covered.

Here on the island, it's all about the experience, and your St. George's Caye Resort is designed by you. We are here to help, of course, but you choose to do as much or as little as you wish.

To help you create memories of a lifetime, we've designed a weekly activities program with our best tours (and best guides!). If relaxation and rest is your goal, we do consider that an island approved, "activity".

Just to get started, here are 4+ incredible ways to spend a day at St. George's Caye!

  • Does the thought of sinking into warm, teal blue waters sound inviting? Try diving or snorkeling. Our divemasters know of unnamed dive sites, making your trip to the reef personable and without the crowds, you may experience at other named dive sites. They also know where to find the best chance to see dolphins, manatees, and all of the other vibrant creatures of the sea! Not sure about SCUBA? Get your feet wet with our complimentary Try Scuba Diving. Try SCUBA enables you to experience breathing underwater using SCUBA equipment under the direct supervision of our instructor in a safe and controlled environment. Included is a brief gear orientation followed by instruction in the pool, at no charge!
  • Want to be active while exploring the island? Enjoy our complimentary water activities: kayaks, Hobie Cat sailboats (instruction is provided by our team), SUP's, snorkeling off the dock, and our saline swimming pool. There is plenty of space and a natural environment with endless views.
  • If adventure and experience are what is bringing you to Belize, we have packed a ton of options in for that checklist. Our host will meet with you and let you know about excursions for the week. Just some of the experiences are:
      • Cave Tubing and Zip Lining - This is a chart-topper and one of the most popular adventures that we offer guests.
      • Lamanai Mayan Temple and Ruins - Turn back time and check out these ancient ruins. The views from the top are also spectacular and insta-worthy! The name "Lamanai" comes from the word "submerged crocodile" in the Mayan language. This site, situated along the New River Lagoon, features the monumental architecture of temples and palaces dating from the Classic and Pre-Classic Periods. Pollen evidence dates the earliest occupation at the site to be about 1500 B.C. The earliest pottery has been dated to about 500 B.C.
      • San Pedro Slam (snorkeling and a visit to Ambergris Caye) - Travel by boat across the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea, going past nearby Caye Chapel and Caye Caulker, to San Pedro on Ambergris Caye. Spend the morning on a guided snorkeling and/or diving adventure at two popular sites, Hol Chan Marine Reserve and Shark Ray Alley. (For guests who do not want to snorkel or dive, you have the full day to explore Ambergris Caye.) At the end of your day, you return to St. George's with plenty of time to unwind and freshen up before dinner.
      • Blue Hole National Park/St. Herman's Cave - The park is a source of wonder with numerous underground streams, and extensive cave system, and is ideal for birding with over 200 species of birds. Three of the five species of wild cats found in Belize - jaguar, ocelot, and jaguarondi - have been sighted in the park. A guided exploration into the cave system takes you through huge caverns that are adorned with crystalline formations. Take a walk down the footpath and staircase of the Maya shaman and priest as they journeyed into the underworld where they used the chambers deep within the cave for their ceremonies. See Maya artifacts such as pottery, beads, obsidian knives, and human skeletons calcified in the limestone floor that date back 2000 years.

When you return from your day-well-spent, we will have a lavishly authentic meal, drinks, and the chance to reflect on your life-long memories. We are here to serve you!

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!

Seeking adventure in 2017? The experts say: Travel to Belize!

Seeking adventure in 2017? The experts say: Travel to Belize!

We love seeing Belize in the travel news because that means more people will discover this awesome country and want to visit! So we were pleased to see that Belize was selected as a "top adventure tour destination" to visit in 2017 by Stride Travel, a large search and review site for tours and adventure experiences. 

You can read the press release here on Belize Breaking News.

EXPERIENCE THE BEST BELIZE ADVENTURES WITH A "REEF TO RAINFOREST" PACKAGE

Many travelers considering Belize want to spend time both in the jungle and on the beach and have a hard time deciding. We can help!

At St. George's Caye we offer four jungle/beach all-inclusive packages to choose from, so you can spend time on the mainland and on our island and have all of your meals and transportation included. Easy! We work with two different jungle lodges, each offering a different experience in a different part of the country, depending on your interests. 

Packages with Mariposa Jungle Lodge & Tours

Located in the heart of Maya country in the Cayo district on the West side of Belize (near Guatemala), Mariposa Jungle Lodge offers a luxury jungle experience with 6 beautiful cabanas and a main lodge for meals. They have a swimming pool, jungle birdwatching tower, and hiking trails onsite. Plus a large variety of adventure, nature, and cultural tours led by their professional in-house tour guides of Mayan descent. 

Maya Love & Island Bliss romance package

Maya, Cayo & The Caye adventure package

Packages with Caves Branch Jungle Lodge & Adventure Tours

Located near Belmopan in the center of the country, Ian Anderson's Caves Branch Jungle Lodge is truly in the jungle and focuses on providing fun adrenaline-fueled adventures for the whole family (it's not for everyone, they say so right on their website!). They have treehouse suites, a botanical walking trail, swimming pool, and many of the adventures are right on their property like waterfall repelling and cave tubing. 

Jungle Beach Romance honeymoon/romance package

Twice The Paradise adventure package

 

CAN WE STAY AT AN ISLAND RESORT AND STILL SEE THE MAINLAND?

Yes, definitely! We know not everyone wants to sleep in the jungle and that is okay. You can stay on the beach in one of our private thatch cabanas and take advantage of our guided tours to see more of Belize. 

At St. George's we offer a variety of day trips to the mainland so you can climb Mayan ruins or float through caves in an underground river or visit museums and the Belize Zoo. Our convenient central location only 7 miles from Belize City makes for quick travels back and forth for your jungle adventures (it's about a 20 minute boat ride each way). 

The best part about staying at St. George's is how close we are to the reef - and with no other dive resorts nearby so you have privacy and seclusion. Explore the barrier reef while diving or snorkeling and you'll likely not see another boat or diver besides our group. You'll see a wide variety of coral and fish and even the occasional dolphin or manatee!
