Belize

Best for once-in-a-lifetime diving

Swap the eggnog for Caribbean rum cocktails this Christmas and head to Belize for a spot of laid back luxury.

With more than 40% of the country protected, visitors to Belize should make the most of the beautiful surroundings — save plenty of time to go diving in the Great Blue Hole (one for your diving bucket list), visit the Cockscomb Basin wildlife sanctuary and soak up the history at the Lamanai and Xunantunich Mayan ruins.

While on the mainland, start your party prep early with a Oriental Body Glow treatment at the Turtle Inn resort before enjoying a few glasses in the resort’s “wine aquarium”, which is well-stocked with a huge variety of wines to enjoy alongside a locally-sourced cheese platter in the intimate wine garden.

There are a number of culinary delights in Belize for yachties. Cut loose by heading to one of Placenia’s many beachside bars for a cocktail. For a more authentic Belizean atmosphere start the party at Barefoot Beach Bar, or else opt for a more intimate evening with incredible views of the Placencia Lagoon and Maya Mountains at Belize Ocean Club’s Shore House.

Keen kayakers can paddle to surrounding islets to explore quieter shores, but nature-lovers should tender to the 'eco-village' of Long Caye, where more than 600 acres of carefully conserved land plays host to a myriad of amazing flora and fauna. The surrounding coral reefs are perfect for diving, paddleboarding and snorkelling.
