Thinking About Belize? Here are 5 Hotels Popular with Agents

Belize may sound far away but you know what? It isn’t. From Chicago, it’s only a six-hour flight. From Denver, it’s four hours and from Dallas, you can be in this rising vacation destination in just three hours! For a different take on a sun and sand vacation, Belize might just do the trick, so here are five Belizean hotels popular amongst travel agents.

1. Coco Beach Resort

Located on the island of Ambergris Caye and just north of the city of San Pedro, Coco Beach Resort offers guests barefoot luxury, ocean views and an overall laidback island vibe. The unique location, cozy size (50 rooms) and easy access to adventures like sea kayaking, snorkeling and Mayan ruin exploration make it easy to see why Coco Beach Resort is a popular pick among agents.

2. Mahogany Bay Resort & Beach Club

Also on the island of Ambergris Caye, the Mahogany Bay Resort & Beach Club is part of the Curio Collection by Hilton and has a relaxed yet crisp and modern design with an authentic feel from the local sustainably-harvested genuine Belizean hardwoods used throughout the resort. Get some yoga in at Science and Soul Wellness, one of the largest holistic health and yoga centers in Belize, mingle with other guests at The Great House, a 22,000-square-foot space or simply relax by the dreamy pool.

3. Belizean Shores Resort

Ambergris Caye is clearly the place to go when visiting Belize, as the Belizean Shores Resort is also located there. This resort is not all-inclusive, but that’s ok! The condo-style suites have kitchens and private outdoor space, plus the resort’s pool is incredible. Go on a fishing excursion and enjoy your catch for dinner that night or head to San Pedro for some local eats.

4. Best Western Belize Biltmore Plaza

Its location right in Belize City make it easy to get to excursions, many of which you can book right through the resort. Plus, you really can’t beat the price.

5. Ka'ana Resort

For many, Belize means the jungle and Ka’ana Resort in western Belize truly embodies the jungle experience. Choose from suites or villas, all thoughtfully designed to highlight the property’s natural beauty and focus on the environment. Many of the ingredients used in the dishes at La Ceiba, the onsite restaurant, are sourced from the organic garden on the property.
