by Khaila Gentle

Belize is a captivating paradise, says Travel Noire. This paradise sits “nestled along the coast of Central America.” And this week, the travel publication showed Belize some love, highlighting some of the best places to stay.

From the sandy beaches of Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker to the rolling hills of Cayo and the ever-underrated Belize district, there are plenty of options when it comes to staying in Belize, no matter your tastes.

Where to Stay in Belize, According to Travel Noire

Beachfront Fun & Relaxation

When vacationing on Belize’s Caribbean coastline, travelers have destination options that range from the buzzing island of Ambergris Caye to the sleepy yet captivating village of Hopkins. Belize’s largest island is a magnet for offshore adventurers, including those searching for snorkeling on the barrier reef and other water sports experiences.

“The town of San Pedro on Ambergris Caye offers a range of fun activities from luxury resorts to budget-friendly experiences and fine dining,” says Travel Noire, recommending the luxurious Victoria House Resort & Spa and adults-only Matachica Resort as top spots to stay.

When it comes to the low-key but absolutely gorgeous Hopkins, the black travel publication recommends Hamanasi Adventure & Dive Resort for the best of both worlds (beach & rainforest). Meanwhile, travelers should turn to the hip and mid-range Almond Beach Resort at Jaguar Reef for beachfront relaxation.
