Top Reasons to Stay in a Beachfront Villa In Belize (Over Anywhere Else!)  

by Larry Waight

The world is filled with slivers of paradise if you know where to look, but that doesn’t mean that all paradises are created equally. Belize isn’t the most well-known Caribbean nation, but it is becoming popular for both tourists and retirees. If you’ve never considered a trip to Belize, it might be time that you did. You can do a lot with a small budget, and Ambergris Caye in particular is positioned as a tourist’s paradise. Here’s why Belize should be your number one choice for your next beach vacation.

Sights Like Nowhere Else in the World

The Caribbean Sea is only a sixth of the size of the Arctic Ocean, but it holds 14% of the world’s reefs. The Belize Barrier Reef is the second-largest formation of its kind in the world, and the rich marine habitats that have sprung up, as a result, have transformed the Caribbean into a hot destination for divers, snorkelers, and fishing enthusiasts. That verdant ecosystem is also sustained by over 400 islands off of the coast of Belize alone. Ambergris Caye remains Belize’s most popular destination for tourists — and that’s thanks to its natural beauty and its close proximity to the Belize Barrier Reef.

A Language That’s Familiar


Belize is a convenient direct flight from many major U.S. airport hubs, and the tropical island of Ambergris Caye is a simple water taxi ride from the Belize City airport. But navigating the culture and shops are straightforward to, thanks to the fact that English is the native language in Belize. Language barriers don’t have to prevent you from enjoying your time in Belize, but the diverse variety of cultures and the traditions unique to Belize still allow you to embrace a new way of life. No matter what their background is, Belizeans are known for being laid back and hospitable to travelers.

If you’re looking to channel some of those chill beach vibes, there’s no better place than the resort-like La Perla del Caribe. Private villas that open directly out onto the beachfront make it hard to want to leave — and the qualified concierge, who’s ready to help with everything from finding a private chef to renting a golf cart, can ensure that you never have to leave. More adventurous travelers will love the breadth of activities in the surrounding waters — but everyone can be confident knowing that they can comfortably just wake up and pursue whatever whim they want in peace.

A Retreat From Modern Worries

Worries about the Coronavirus epidemic have turned our lives upside down, but that doesn’t mean that the news has to consume your life. Belize was conscientious about rolling out its doors to tourists after the onset of COVID-19, but they put in place a sensible reopening plan that was praised throughout the world and prioritized health and safety without stripping out the tourism industry entirely. La Perla Del Caribe is honored to be a Gold Standard participant, and that’s a sign that they hold themselves to the highest standards of sanitary practices. And with the help of a concierge, you can arrange for every leg of your trip to be planned to your unique specifications.

An Alternative to Ordinary Living


If there’s one positive that’s come from the past pandemic, it’s that remote work has become embraced with open arms by a wide variety of businesses. That — combined with the cheap costs and geographic proximity of Belize to the United States — means that a Belize villa could be your new normal. Belize’s infrastructure is more impressive than your initial assumptions might suggest, and resorts like La Perla Del Caribe offer reliable WiFi throughout the property. This resort could effectively become your office away from home — and you could hypothetically keep the act going into perpetuity.

Facilities For Any Group

Whether you’re looking to celebrate your honeymoon with that special someone, catch up with the immediate family and in-laws, or simply show the kids what life is like outside of America, Belize has a lot to offer. From beautiful wildlife to delicious seafood to adrenaline-pumping activities, there’s a little something for everyone. That’s true of La Perla Del Caribe as well. A dozen villas can offer everything from an intimate romance suite to a five-bedroom that can seat up to 11, and the local staff is ready to work with you even if your demands are pickier. You can even plan and execute your wedding on site. But whatever your reason for coming to visit, you can count on everyone at the resort to treat you like a celebrity. Let this boutique hotel help you settle on a vacation package that you’ll remember for the rest of your life.
