Belize is Different and I love it!

Travel Inspiration

Belize is situated in the coast of the Caribbean Sea just south of Mexico’s famed Yucatan Peninsula. This Central American nation of Belize is gaining lots of recognition for its untapped tropical paradise and is becoming increasingly popular among tourists.

Belize’s hundreds of glorious golden- and white- sand beaches have long remained the Caribbean’s best-kept secret.

I just returned from this amazing country and here are a few things you should know before you plan your trip to Belize:

No Mega- Grocery Stores or Malls
Shopping is not really a pastime in Belize, unless looking for souvenirs. If you think you will find your brand of soap or snacks, think again. If you do find them, the price will shock you. Trust me! Try the different brands, I’m sure you’ll find one you like.

No Fast Food

I don’t know about you but this is a good thing for me. I know many travelers, like the option to get some familiar “fast food” here and there. Not in Belize. Try the local cuisine and enjoy something different. I live in the south, but believe it or not, some of the best BBQ was at a local restaurant in Belize City. The brisket was off the chain.

No Fancy Resorts

There are several resorts with small boutique hotels in Belize. Most resorts have their own beautiful beach, but there are locations like Caye Caulker with gorgeous stretches of beach and no five-star hotels.. When you go to Belize, go for the beautiful beaches, not the hotel.

No easy access to the best beaches

Your international flight will arrive in Belize City, but that is not where the beautiful beaches are, so you must take further transportation to get to them which can be a beautiful experience.

You can take a small flight to the island of Ambergris Caye or to Placencia Peninsula, or Punta Gorda. Or you can take a taxi to the water taxi dock and ride over the turquoise Caribbean Sea to Caye Caulker or Ambergris Caye. Or rent a car and drive to Hopkins.

It is up to you, but you do have to take a few extra steps to see the beautiful beaches of Belize.

Belize is a beautiful country to visit or live but it is not the Caribbean country you may be used to. It is not Cancun, Jamaica or Bahamas but that is why I personally like it. If you want a laid- back, relaxed, authentic simple vacation, Belize is perfect. Check it out!
