La Perla Del Caribe: Belize Villas Designed for Discriminating Travelers

by Larry Waight

When Phillipe and Nadia purchased a parcel of land in 2002 and set off on a mission to build an ultimate haven for tourists seeking more than the usual resort stay, they named their vision La Perla Del Caribe, a romantic name for a property of only villas that are anything but ordinary.

Only 12 villas of varying sizes were built amid lush surroundings on world-famous Ambergris Caye. These are no ordinary structures. Each is named for precious stones: Opal, Ruby, Amber, Diamond, Emerald Jade, Topaz, Coral, Amethyst, Sapphire, Pearl, and Sand. Phillipe and Nadia filled each villa with unique treasures acquired during Central American travels. Every richly carved and ornate piece of art, textile, and furnishing is so unique, guests say they understand how it feels to vacation like the rich and famous!

Ambergris Caye’s San Pedro Town has everything you crave

Premier among the nation’s islands is Ambergris Caye, the place visitors come for their fill of fun, sun, and excitement. In fact, you couldn’t get bored if you tried. Proximity to these unique experiences means you won’t have to travel very far to do all of this and so much more:

  • Get your fill of food and libations by touring San Pedro pubs, eateries, and shops
  • Say yes to a dive at the Great Blue Hole, a spectacular 147-foot sinkhole beloved by Jacques Cousteau
  • Travel to Shark Ray Alley where diving with whale sharks is anything but dangerous
  • Tour the Belize Chocolate Company where sampling is part of the fun
  • Visit Mexico Rocks, a shallow reef complex that will satisfy your desire to see endless ancient corals
  • Learn windsurfing or kitesurfing to recall how it felt when you were a kid with no cares in the world
  • Evoke your inner daredevil by zip-lining over jungle canopies for the thrill of a lifetime
  • Paddle off on a group or solo kayaking adventure
  • Make it your mission to see as many Mayan above-ground ruins and underworld caves as time allows.

There’s so much more and you don’t have to lift a finger to create a doable itinerary during your sojourn since your La Perla Del Caribe host is happy to sort out everything from transport to and from sites to helping you get the gear you need for adventure excursions. Further, every guest has access to Wi-Fi, kayaks and bicycles, remote check-in and check-out services, and a private safe.

This is no ordinary Belize resort

Choose a La Perla Del Caribe villa as your destination when stressors, responsibilities, and pressures become overwhelming by renting an individually owned home that has been strategically placed on the property to give you unprecedented privacy. But perhaps you are planning a family or friends trip and you need more room. No worries. Spacious villas with up to 5 bedrooms are also available.

You decide how much time you’d like to spend outside your posh digs at the community’s swimming pool and 500 feet of beach that face the nation’s biggest natural wonder: The Belize Barrier Reef. Further, La Perla Del Caribe staff has no equal. Trained in every aspect of personal service, if you need something that isn’t already provided, all you need do is ask.

Add-ons make your La Perla Del Caribe stay a trip to paradise

San Pedro is but a puddle jump away from Belize City thanks to local airlines like Maya Island Air.

Make it a worry-free journey by adding perks to your vacation plans, like round trip flights to and from the international airport to Ambergris, private taxi service to the resort, grocery service, and the assistance of a private chef if you prefer to dine in your villa rather than going out. You needn’t go elsewhere for select spa services since on-call massages within the privacy of your villa are also available.

Having mentioned just a few of the delights your La Perla del Caribe holiday incorporates into your villas, you’ll be pleased to learn that if you love sightseeing as much as you love the cozy, secure feeling of sojourning amid the splendor of your villa, all you need do is say the word and tours like those listed above will be arranged for you.

The vacation destination you dreamed about but didn’t think existed

Set your own itinerary based on your passion, be it reveling in the beauty of ancient Maya ruins, having your fill of diving, snorkeling, sailing, fishing, and other aquatic adventures, or seeing the amazing variety of wildlife calling Belize home. After all, the staff put together the itinerary of your dreams.

Given La Perla Del Caribe’s small size, you may wish to examine your calendar and choose a couple of dates for your stay since these gorgeous villas have already developed fan followings, repeat visitors who wouldn’t stay elsewhere.
