Tranquility Awaits at La Perla del Caribe on Ambergris Caye, Belize  

by Larry Waight

What comes to mind when you think about pearls? These tiny miracles are prized by those who understand the spiritual strength of these “introspective” gems that represent wisdom and harmony and offer emotional healing powers to people whose spirits need comfort. Why mention the metaphysical properties of pearls? Because all the words used to describe them are easily ascribed to La Perla del Caribe on Ambergris Caye in Belize.

A dream becomes a haven for weary souls

When owners of La Perla del Caribe Phillipe and Nadia decided that life was too short not to pursue their dream of ownership of a Caribbean resort back in 1995, they fortuitously discovered a lush stretch of beach north of San Pedro on Ambergris Caye. Here, their first venture into tourism proved an immediate success with the establishment of Matachica Resort.

There was more to be done, they concluded. After being approached time and time again to invest, their dream expanded into the construction of this now small community of individual boutique homes destined to become individually owned homes for folks seeking a more permanent residence in Belize. At La Perla del Caribe, each of the 12 homes was filled with treasures including antique tables, wooden carvings, hand-carved chests, and lavish textiles reminiscent of Belize’s bordering Yucatan nations. Inside, hand-painted tiles and hardwoods covered the floors of each abode adding to the uniqueness of each room.

A community: Not just a place to stay

When travelers fall in love with Belize, they crave more than just a resort experience but don’t necessarily want to purchase a house. They want more. And La Perla del Caribe is the answer to carefree living at its most luxurious. Every vacation rental prioritizes guest privacy as well as Caribbean Sea views. There’s even a dock for boaters as well as kayaks and bicycles so guests can tour the island by land or by sea.

Earning Gold Standard status for protocols put into place when COVID swept the globe, each unit of La Perla is meticulously cared for as will you be once you discover perks not usually found in a vacation rental. Not to mention, you’ll have an onsite concierge to arrange tours and aquatic adventures, golf cart rentals, and private chefs, all of which allows you to custom design your stay.

Yes, size matters at La Perla Del Caribe

It can be hard to find appropriate accommodations for small families, groups, and even business sojourns, but La Perla del Caribe is the exception to the rule. Whether you seek an oceanfront 2-bedroom villa or need a larger accommodation to house your party, larger 4- and 5-bedroom villas are set back slightly from the water and offer you spacious lodgings that feature unique interiors and lots of room to spread out.

Whether you’re planning a corporate getaway, a wedding, a family reunion, or a church retreat, La Perla del Caribe is your headquarters for fun in the sun thanks to a long list of tours, adventures, and experiences available to all members of your party, no matter their ages and interests.

Buy or rent – your call

How often have you been given an opportunity to sojourn at a residence before you buy it? This is your chance. Invest in one of the few available homes on community grounds and not only will you have a permanent slice of Caribbean beauty to call your own but you could lease it when you’re not able to get away from work and family obligations.

Skeptical? Don’t be

More than 1 million people have posted reviews on prestigious travel rating website pages attesting to the magic of this remarkable destination and if you select the video posted on the property’s website you’re going to be convinced that you too have found nirvana.

Don’t you owe it to yourself and the people you love to celebrate having come out on the other side of COVID with a new appreciation of life and its miracles? The best way to do that is to plan a vacation guaranteed to delight every member of your travel party. Direct airline flights from major U.S. ports are so short – some reach Belize in just 2 hours or so – that you may not finish reading that magazine you bought!

After all, opportunities like this don’t come along every day so ask yourself this question: What am I waiting for? The answer lies on a small stretch of beach along the Caribbean shoreline that could change your life forever. Curious? Get in touch here
