Give Yourself an End-of-Year Gift: A La Perla del Caribe Escape

by Larry Waight

Summer’s finally over — and you’re not alone if you felt like it was never going to end. For those who can’t get enough of the warm weather, though, look to Belize for a sunny end-of-year getaway. As your leaves turn from green to auburn–and you dig out that leaf blower to tidy your yard–putting together plans for fall and winter travel might just be the thing needed to warm you up.

Set in Central America, Belize is the ideal destination if you’re looking to avoid sitting on an airplane for endless hours. It’s just a couple of hours south of the U.S., and it’s definitely the favored destination of American vacationers these days. This laid-back nation welcomes travelers with an abundance of warmth and hospitality. 

Where to Stay in Belize for the Time of Your Life

Stick your boots and coat in the closet, and take advantage of the all-villa resort on Ambergris Caye that’s serving up special tropical getaways. La Perla del Caribe is a beachfront conclave of vacation rental homes, boasting 12 villas of varying sizes, each one Gold Standard Certified by the Belize Tourism Board. Larger villas are ideal for couples or families, and if you want to suggest that your friends or family members join you, you probably won’t have much trouble convincing them.

Situated just five miles north of charming San Pedro Town, these beach-side villas are havens of luxury, decorated with a rich assortment of handmade furnishings, lush tapestries, and pieces of indigenous art. When you’re not reveling in the beauty of your unique villa, you’ll be impressed by the menu of activities available to La Perla del Caribe guests. Enjoy offshore adventures like fishing, snorkeling, and diving. Or, book a tour on the mainland for opportunities to explore ancient Mayan ruins and zip through the jungle canopies.

Of course, if your objective is doing absolutely nothing, you can relax, feel the stress drain from your body, and perhaps treat yourself to a sailing adventure or a romantic sunset cruise. It’s okay to feel sorry for folks you left behind who are battling bad weather while you enjoy being pampered at this tropical haven. 

What Sets La Perla Del Caribe Apart From the Rest?

Go beyond just a regular resort or villa stay when you vacation at La Perla. Every aspect of your holiday can be covered by the resort’s concierge services, which are well worth the additional costs. Your personal concierge will be able to accommodate: 

  • Round-trip flights from the international airport to San Pedro’s airstrip
  • Private transfer from the San Pedro ferry terminal or airstrip to La Perla del Caribe
  • Daily Housekeeping (Your stay will include arrival and departure housekeeping)
  • Services of a private chef for in-villa dining
  • Access to spa services like massages
  • Local golf cart rental for getting around Ambergris Caye
  • Help with tour and adventure reservations
  • Private or public water taxi rides
  • And more!

Enjoy vacationing at your own pace – whether you want to hunker down in your luxury vacation villa or venture out to Secret Beach or San Pedro Town.

Fair Warning: You Might Want to Stay Even Longer 

Guests who come down for holidays tend to fall in love with life in Belize quickly. So, if the temptation to explore the possibility of home ownership strikes, know that you’re definitely not the only one. Hop on the chance to build your investment portfolio with a luxury vacation home of your own at La Perla. Or, make it the retirement hub you’ve dreamed about – you’ll be in good company!

Moving to Belize could be the easiest move you’ve ever made. Given the small number of villas on La Perla del Caribe grounds, you can’t afford to wait long to lock in your fall or winter booking. Secure yourself an extended stay and get ready to retire your leaf blower until the end of 2024! Check availability here
