Vacation With The Whole Family at La Perla del Caribe, a Caribbean Gem

by Dion Vansen

The present COVID-19 pandemic kept many families and friends apart as the world figured out this unexpected global health crisis that paralyzed the world in 2020. The isolation was hard on many, but fast-forward to 2022 families and close ones can now spend time together, and even travel to exotic and beautiful destinations. Belize is no exception, and its popular island of Ambergris Caye is a favorite. Groups composed of family and friends are always looking for that perfect hotel, family-friendly with the promise of privacy and an exceptional experience. On the northern part of Ambergris Caye, there is an exclusive collection of homes equipped with all the amenities for that memorable reunion. This is La Perla del Caribe, a private villa beach resort with lush gardens, an amazing swimming pool, a private dock, and a stunning beachfront. 

La Perla del Caribe is an owner-managed property located 5.5 miles north of the island’s main town of San Pedro. Surrounded by swaying coconut trees and in front of the crystal-clear turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea, it’s a secluded private paradise of 12 vacation homes away from the crowds, but with everything you need to spend that special getaway. It can be accessed by boat or road, and the town and popular areas like Secret Beach are a short distance away. The second largest barrier reef in the world is just in front of you, ideal for taking dive and snorkeling tours from the nearby dive shops. Fly fishing flats are also nearby if you fancy some sport fishing. La Perla del Caribe is very accommodating, and you will not need to lift a finger to arrange any activities. 

Concierge Service, No Lobby Check-In Required 

Once you check in at La Perla del Caribe, relax, allow yourself to be pampered and make any requests and their highly trained staff will take care of everything. The resort boasts a unique concierge service through which you can book tours, spa services, golf cart rentals, and even arrange private chefs for that special event or family dinner.  

Another advantage of being a perfect place for families is that there is no need to visit the front desk for checking in or checking out. There is also an in-house telephone system so you can really feel at home. 

Do you feel like making that family time more intimate and are in the mood to show your BBQ skills? No problem, there is a complimentary BBQ grill available, just make the request at the front desk and it will be delivered to your villa. 

The villas 

The vacation rental homes are Gold Standard Certified, a certification designed by the Belize Tourism Board at the height of the Covid pandemic to make the property safer. In the beachfront area, you will find 2-bedroom villas, ideal for young children and seniors. The other homes, just behind the beachfront villas are the larger ones with three, four, and five bedrooms. Although these are not near the beach, they have spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea. The larger villas will be the recommended ones for large groups, or families traveling together.

These homes come with a private safe and are furnished with antiques, original artwork, wood carvings, and handwoven textiles from the region. Another unique feature of this resort and why it is ideal for reconnecting is that when you join the homes, it has the capacity to host boutique weddings, family reunions, and any other important event.  

Other amenities include Wi-Fi throughout the property, along with complimentary kayaks and paddle boards. 

Getting there 

For an additional cost, their luxury concierge crew can assist in booking local flights from the Philip Goldson International Airport to Ambergris Caye. There is also the option to travel to the island via water taxi from Belize City. Once you get to Ambergris Caye, the resort’s boat captain or ground taxi transfer will pick you up from either the local airport or water taxi terminal. 

La Perla del Caribe is a unique place for those special family times. Not to mention that it has its own magic touch as each of the 12 homes is named after a stone. These include Opal, Ruby, Amber, Diamond, Emerald Jade, Topaz, Coral, Amethyst, Sapphire, Pearl, and Sand.
