Waves & Wonder: A Reef-to-Ridge Package To Book This Summer

by Carolee Chanona

Meet Belize, the Caribbean and Central American nation where travelers can get the best of both worlds in one package: Mayan ruins blanketed by vine-draped rainforests and the second largest living barrier reef in the world. Despite its seemingly small size, Belize offers ample adventure for adrenaline junkies, while miles of beaches and secluded rainforest retreats beckon travelers looking for a little R & R. Thanks to this Waves and Wonder package that takes you from the coastlines of Placencia at Naia Resort & Spa to sweeping views of the Stann Creek River Valley at The Lodge at Sleeping Giant, you can do both.

Nestled within a private 200-acre reserve on the Placencia Peninsula, Naia is an intimate, natural playground. Whether paddle boarding in the beautiful Caribbean Sea, indulging in a customized spa ritual or relaxing among the resort’s secluded beach houses and swimming pools, this resort is rustic luxury at its best. Now, there’s a new way to experience the waves on the Placencia Peninsula, contrasting lush interiors of the Hummingbird Highway, landing you at the Sleeping Giant Rainforest Lodge by the Sibun River.
