When you want a truly relaxing vacation, you don’t want to spend your time jostling through crowds or waiting in long lines to see your favorite attractions. If you’re tired of fighting the crowds, book your tickets for Belize. Even during peak season, Belize never gets overcrowded.

It’s a Small Country

Belize is a small country with a population of only 400,000. There are still large areas of the country that are unspoiled and uninhabited. If you want to see nature in its full glory, you can still experience that in Belize.

Despite its small size, the main towns in Belize have all the amenities you need for an enjoyable stay. The sun is bright, the food is delicious and the beach bars party all night long.

There’s another advantage to our small size. Because Belize doesn’t have huge crowds anywhere, you don’t have to worry about diseases like the coronavirus. You can feel safe in Belize.

Your Own Island Getaway

In addition to miles of beachfront, Belize has hundreds of offshore islands and cayes that dot the blue Caribbean waters. Some of these islands, like Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker, are large enough for their own airstrip. Others are so small they can only fit 50 people at a time.

There are dozens of these secluded islands. You can escape to one for a day of snorkeling, swimming and sunning.

Your Oasis Is Waiting

Belize doesn’t have high-rise resort complexes that crowd out your view of the sea or sky. Instead, you’ll find small hotels that only accommodate 12 to 20 people. These range from laid-back, family-operated hotels to rustic jungle lodges to high-end, exclusive resorts.

Typically, these hotels have beautifully landscaped gardens and scenic views of rivers, mountains or the Caribbean Sea. Each is like an oasis of tranquility you can escape to every day.

Eco-tourism and sustainability are integral to Belize’s tourist industry. Your hotel is likely to use alternative energy sources and use environmentally-conscious practices.

Different Destinations

Belize is filled with adventures of all kinds. You can choose the type of vacation you want by choosing which part of the country you’d like to explore. If you want to enjoy a lively town that’s popular among tourists and expatriates, head to San Pedro and the beautiful beaches of Ambergris Caye. If you want beaches but you’re looking for a more easygoing, slightly bohemian flavor, check out Caye Caulker or Placencia Village. If you’re looking for a large variety of experiences, make San Ignacio your base.

Enjoy a Vacation Without Crowds

If you’re looking for a quiet, easygoing holiday destination, you can’t go wrong with Belize.
