Trendy Travels

by Cristina Reyna

Nowadays, there are so many options to choose from when planning your vacation. Travel trends come and go but what remains true are the enriching experiences each journey brings.

While taking the next Caribbean cruise or backpacking through Europe are vacation staples, one trending destination offering exclusive adventures, virgin getaways, cultural hideouts, and luxury escapes, is Belize.

Belize offers a unique experience, sure to provide you with many stories to tell. We’ve narrowed down some of the hippest things to do on your Belizean getaway.

SOLO TRAVEL – A vacation for yourself

Traveling by yourself doesn’t mean you’ll experience Belize by yourself. In fact, meeting interesting people is as easy as catching a boat to Caye Caulker and heading over to the Split. Enjoy the Caribbean Sea on a tropical island where the motto is “go slow”. Lay your beach towel on the sea wall and have a chat. The Split is one of the caye’s main hang out spots. You’ll make friends quicker than you can say “another beer please!”

ECO-FRIENDLY TRAVEL – Be part of a positive change

Traveling with a purpose is the most amazing feeling! You get to give back and become part of a greater cause while on vacation. Choose eco-resorts that promote sustainable tourism. A perfect green luxury hideaway in the southern town of Punta Gorda is Copal Tree Resort. A member of National Geographic’s Unique Lodges of the World, it is a sustainable and community-driven development. Enjoy farm to table cuisine, cacao tours and cocktails made with their signature rum. You can also make a contribution by packing general medical supplies as the resort donates these to The Punta Gorda Hospital. Check for a complete list of needs you can bring.

FAMILY SABBATICAL – Quality time as family

A sabbatical is traditionally known as a year-long leave for study or travel. Today, sabbaticals aren’t only for employees. Whole families are uprooting their lives in pursuit of positive change and deeper purpose. Longer family vacations are all the rage and Belize is a popular destination on the world tour list. Enjoy the quaint village of Placencia with the ones you love most. Visit the offshore Cayes in style aboard a fully equipped yacht and make memories that will last a lifetime.


From north to south there are so many places to visit in Belize! Rent a car, make a playlist and hit the road! From the many Maya sites in the country to the national parks and reserves, and a very cool zoo, there is so much to see and do. A road trip is the best way to authentically experience Belize. Just choose your direction!
