Seeking adventure in 2017? The experts say: Travel to Belize!

We love seeing Belize in the travel news because that means more people will discover this awesome country and want to visit! So we were pleased to see that Belize was selected as a "top adventure tour destination" to visit in 2017 by Stride Travel, a large search and review site for tours and adventure experiences. 

You can read the press release here on Belize Breaking News.

EXPERIENCE THE BEST BELIZE ADVENTURES WITH A "REEF TO RAINFOREST" PACKAGE

Many travelers considering Belize want to spend time both in the jungle and on the beach and have a hard time deciding. We can help!

At St. George's Caye we offer four jungle/beach all-inclusive packages to choose from, so you can spend time on the mainland and on our island and have all of your meals and transportation included. Easy! We work with two different jungle lodges, each offering a different experience in a different part of the country, depending on your interests. 

Packages with Mariposa Jungle Lodge & Tours

Located in the heart of Maya country in the Cayo district on the West side of Belize (near Guatemala), Mariposa Jungle Lodge offers a luxury jungle experience with 6 beautiful cabanas and a main lodge for meals. They have a swimming pool, jungle birdwatching tower, and hiking trails onsite. Plus a large variety of adventure, nature, and cultural tours led by their professional in-house tour guides of Mayan descent. 

Maya Love & Island Bliss romance package

Maya, Cayo & The Caye adventure package

Packages with Caves Branch Jungle Lodge & Adventure Tours

Located near Belmopan in the center of the country, Ian Anderson's Caves Branch Jungle Lodge is truly in the jungle and focuses on providing fun adrenaline-fueled adventures for the whole family (it's not for everyone, they say so right on their website!). They have treehouse suites, a botanical walking trail, swimming pool, and many of the adventures are right on their property like waterfall repelling and cave tubing. 

Jungle Beach Romance honeymoon/romance package

Twice The Paradise adventure package

 

CAN WE STAY AT AN ISLAND RESORT AND STILL SEE THE MAINLAND?

Yes, definitely! We know not everyone wants to sleep in the jungle and that is okay. You can stay on the beach in one of our private thatch cabanas and take advantage of our guided tours to see more of Belize. 

At St. George's we offer a variety of day trips to the mainland so you can climb Mayan ruins or float through caves in an underground river or visit museums and the Belize Zoo. Our convenient central location only 7 miles from Belize City makes for quick travels back and forth for your jungle adventures (it's about a 20 minute boat ride each way). 

The best part about staying at St. George's is how close we are to the reef - and with no other dive resorts nearby so you have privacy and seclusion. Explore the barrier reef while diving or snorkeling and you'll likely not see another boat or diver besides our group. You'll see a wide variety of coral and fish and even the occasional dolphin or manatee!

GET IN TOUCH TO PLAN YOUR 2017 BELIZE ADVENTURE!

Cap'n Ron has been visiting Belize for more than 18 years and is happy to share his experience to help you plan the perfect Belize all-inclusive vacation. Right now we're offering 10% off any jungle/beach package with Mariposa Jungle Lodge if you book by October 31, 2016. Good for travel now through December 2017. So what are you waiting for? :)

Divers Keeping the Barrier Reef Healthy: Lionfish Tournament in October

Divers Keeping the Barrier Reef Healthy: Lionfish Tournament in October

Lionfish are an invasive species in the Caribbean and they are voracious eaters, potentially devastating to the health of coral reefs. The dive team at St. George's Caye Resort is doing our part to rid the reef of these fast-breeding fish – and many guests who are experienced divers join our dive masters and "spear hunt" underwater! It's exciting and a fun way to control the lionfish population and a unique diving experience you can't find just anywhere. Learn more about Lionfish Dive Safari.

Some of the Best Activities in Belize are Free (for our Guests!)

Some of the Best Activities in Belize are Free (for our Guests!)

When planning a trip to Belize, guests often ask about the best available activities, both in the ocean exploring the Belize Barrier Reef and on the mainland exploring the jungles.

"I’ve got only 7 days, how much can I fit in?"

The answers is: a lot! Especially with our island's convenient location only 7 miles from Belize City and less than a mile from the Belize Barrier Reef - making both ocean and jungle adventures very easily accessible.

b2ap3_thumbnail_zip-lining.JPG

"What can I do that I’ve never done before? Can I learn to do something new, like sailing, snorkeling, or kayaking?" 

Belize offers a variety of adventures from zip-lining through the jungle canopy and cave-tubing down a river, to ocean activities like diving, snorkeling, and sailing. At our resort there are many opportunities to learn a new hobby or try something new - our local guides and friendly staff are here to help!

b2ap3_thumbnail_Oliver.jpg

"How can I stretch my vacation dollar? Do you offer any FREE activities?"

If you're like most visitors to Belize, you want to squeeze in as much fun as possible (you can rest when you get home, right?). As you plan out your vacation budget, keep in mind that at St. George's Caye Resort we include many free water activities to make sure you get the most out of your time in Belize. Read on to learn more! 

b2ap3_thumbnail_sunrisekayak.jpg

FREE ACTIVITIES AT ST. GEORGE'S CAYE

Reflecting on our own experiences with vacations, when we planned what we would offer at St. George’s Caye we wanted to include a mix of free activities and premium tours. We knew many people would happily pay for valet SCUBA diving on the Belize Barrier Reef and the famous Blue Hole, guided excursions to the jungle to learn about Mayan ruins and culture, and to visit the Hol Chan Marine Reserve and San Pedro on Ambergris Caye.

b2ap3_thumbnail_o-GREAT-BLUE-HOLE-facebook.jpg

But we also knew guests would have lots of "down time" on the island - maybe a free afternoon after diving in the morning, or a day to unwind without a planned activity - and many need to be mindful of their vacation budget, even if they want to do it all. 

So that's why we provide a variety of complimentary water sports equipment and fun things to do that won’t cost you anything and let you experience the best of a Belize island resort...

b2ap3_thumbnail_freeactivities.jpg

KAYAKING

We have a number of kayaks, both single and tandem (sure, your partner will paddle and let you sit back and enjoy!). View mangroves with a variety of sea birds, dolphins and manatees (yes, our guests see these incredible animals on a regular basis), southern rays, spotted eagle rays, lobster, etc.

b2ap3_thumbnail_SUPclearwater2.jpg

STAND-UP PADDLE BOARDS

The leeward (calm) side of our island is a large bay surrounded by mature mangroves. The water is generally about 2 to 4 feet deep, so no worries if you fall (or decide to take a refreshing dip in the ocean). This is great exercise, good for core strength, and totally fun!

b2ap3_thumbnail_Dive_Snork.jpg

SNORKELING 

You can use our snorkel gear any time and see a variety of sea life around our docks, or right off the leeward beach. We also provide guided snorkel trips over the coral reef, just a few minutes from St. George’s Caye, for a fee. This is well worth it because the reef is where you will see the most wildlife and colorful fish, and your guide will point things out that you could easily miss. BUT, you don’t have to pay to snorkel if you don't want to. 

b2ap3_thumbnail_View-of-St-Georges-Caye-from-Sandbar.JPG

WINDSURFING

We have had some of the most dedicated and well-traveled windsurfers visit us at St. George’s Caye and tell us that there is no place in the world where the conditions for windsurfing exceed what we have right in front of the caye! Glide and fly over the sparkling water alongside the Belize Barrier Reef – a magic carpet ride on water.

SAILING

We have three Hobie Cat sailing vessels for complimentary guest use. Experienced sailors visit nearby islands when the winds are good (about 98% of the time), and guests who do not know how to sail are surprised to find that our staff will take them out, teach them the basics, and that they can then go out on their own right away.

b2ap3_thumbnail_PoolsideLounging.JPG

SALINE SWIMMING POOL AVAILABLE 24/7

Sparkling, clear, refreshing, warm enough to walk right in, long enough to swim laps, never crowded, pop-up water volleyball, lounge chairs poolside, sunning deck, shaded area with hammocks – need we say more?

b2ap3_thumbnail_TrySCUBAinPool2.JPG

TRY SCUBA DIVING IN THE POOL

We offer a no-risk program for guests to try scuba diving in our pool with a dive instructor. Get a safety briefing on the equipment and then try breathing underwater and learn a few basic diving safety procedures. Love it? Head on out to the reef for a Resort Dive down to 30 feet - or sign up to get Open Water Dive Certified!

b2ap3_thumbnail_BeachChairVolleyball3.jpg

AND MORE!

Bocce ball, bar games, crab races, shell finding, magic tricks (when Leo is bartending!), card games, board games, and lots of hammock time, reading time, and time to get lost in the moment.

So please, come down and dive with dolphins and sea turtles, hunt some lion fish with us, go to the jungle with the best tour guides - but make sure you also plan to fill many hours with free use of our non-motorized water sports equipment and relaxing around the island. Kayaking, diving, and snorkeling offer some of the best ways to see the beauty of Belize. See you in paradise!

Exciting News: Adventure Tours Now More Affordable!

Exciting News: Adventure Tours Now More Affordable!

Popular excursions like Cave Tubing, Zip Lining and exploring the ancient Mayan temples are thoroughly enjoyed by our guests, and to many visitors are a “must-do” while in Belize. And we can't blame them -- they're a lot of fun! Many of our packages include one or more of these popular Belize Adventures

Excursions to these popular jungle sites are provided in a number of ways by tour operators: 1) Some operators function only on the mainland and provide services at bare-minimum standards; 2) Some tour operators use busses and take 20, 30 or more people at a time; 3) And then there is the St. George’s Caye Experience -- We not only provide boat transfers as part of our tours; we take only small groups from the resort and our top-notch professional guides give personalized tours during which everyone can hear the information. 

Our premium service costs a bit more and that has been mentioned several times in online reviews. Although we will not diminish the quality of our tour experience in order to offer the cheapest prices, we are sensitive to how much a vacation can cost, and so we are always seeking ways to reduce costs and pass the savings on to our guests. 

GOOD NEWS!

Cap'n Ron has just reduced the prices for our most popular tours -- by over 20% when we have 4 or more guests participating! 

We hope this makes it so that even more of our guests can enjoy mainland adventure tours and make unforgettable memories in Belize.

Pauline Frommer, editorial director of the Frommer's Guides, says, "We are suggesting Belize this year" she begins "This is a  life affirming destination" also adding Belize has "Glorious pristine rain-forests, gorgeous nature, incredible water sports but it also has Mayan Ruins. You're going to be climbing to the top of the Pyramids, you're going to be swimming into caves where ancient artifacts are calcified to the floor. They should be in museum's but they can't be moved."

 

Now that Belize has caught your attention - let St. George's Caye Resort be your guide! From diving the famous Blue Hole to climbing the Mayan Temples in Cayo to relaxing and enjoying the local Rum - our staff is ready to serve you!

Other top travel destinations include Asheville, North Carolina, known for its New Belgium Brewery, Washington DC, and also South Dakota. In 2015 South Dakota will be hosting the 75th Anniversary of the Sturgis motorcycle rally August 3-9, 2015 with 1 million bikers expected to attend.

Meet Cornel :: Authentic Belizean Tours

Meet Cornel :: Authentic Belizean Tours

If you've ever been on a tour of Belize with us it is certain you've met Mr. Cornel Staine. And you'd know he's the best tour guide in Belize, hands down. Whether you're on a tour of Belize City, tubing through the caves in the jungle, scaling the river through the mainland or climbing a Mayan temple - Cornel can answer any question you may have. St. George's Caye Resort is excited to have partnered with such an intelligent and passionate tour guide!

 

 

Cornel is a walking book of information regarding all things Belize. From cultural customs and history he paints an accurate picture of Belize then and now. When visiting the Mayan temples his knowledge of their use of the land will amaze you. Ask him about the plants on any adventure through Belize and he'll be able to tell you what it is and how it's used.

 

 

Like many Belizeans Cornel spent most of his time growing up around family. From his father's welding shop in Belize City to his Grandmothers farm in western Belize to cousins scattered, Cornel's upbringing took him all over beautiful Belize giving him a base of knowledge handed down from his elders. Some things are best when learned hands-on! Studying has also been an important component of success for Staine. Tour Guides in Belize are trained with intense curriculum and must demonstrate their skills in the field before final licenses are awarded. Cornel finished top of his class and has never stopped learning and teaching all about Belize.

 b2ap3_thumbnail_539946_171663982978577_65127597_n.jpg

When not touring Belize, Cornel spends his time with his wife, Sharola, and two sons D'Shawn and Khalil. He also enjoys playing pick-up basketball in his neighborhood. Occasionally you can find him hiding out under the ocean off the docks on St George's Caye. He is an avid free diver and SCUBA diver in his spare time!b2ap3_thumbnail_Cornel-Family.jpg

 

We are grateful to have partnership with Mr. Staine for 5 years now - and plan on many more years to come. We all benefit from his love and knowledge of Belize.

Why the Off-Season is the Best Time to Visit Belize

Why the Off-Season is the Best Time to Visit Belize

Belize has two seasons - the wet season and the dry season. Dry season runs from November to June and the wet season - or hurricane season - runs June through October.

 

The best time to visit Belize is during hurricane season! No kidding!

 

 

June to November is active hurricane season and the reason many travelers avoid the Caribbean during these months. However, there are great benefits to traveling to Belize in the off-season. If you are looking for sweet serenity and sweet deals this is the sweet spot to itch your travel bug!

 

Travels shy away for fear of bad weather. This leaves most hotel and resort occupancy rates lower than normal prompting us to provide you with discounts and deals not offered during busy season. 

 

But the truth is most all our days here in Belize are sunny, warm and breezy - no matter the season. 

 

 b2ap3_thumbnail_SGCR-FB-Cover-Photo-3.png

 

Having lived in Belize for almost 4 years I can tell you that hurricane season is my favorite time of the year. This is the time of year I take my own family to explore Belize. The rivers flow faster and feel cool and refreshing. And nothing makes the jungle come alive like a strong rainfall after the dry season (aka high-season). This year my family and I traveled to Punta Gorda in southern Belize. Our days included eating meals with Mayan descendants - who readily welcomed us into their home - swimming in rivers, natural springs and the ocean! 

b2ap3_thumbnail_DSC04009small.jpgb2ap3_thumbnail_DSC03842small.jpg

 RIGHT: Lilly & Sabrina playing

Best reasons to travel in the off-season:

  • The Local's come out to the Cayes! I enjoy meeting locals wherever I travel and Belize locals are the nicest and most friendly people you may ever meet in your lifetime. They tell stories of "how it used to be" and offer you a friendly smile when you pass them on their porches.

 

  • The beaches, bars, Mayan Ruins, Jungle Tours are all less crowded. Want to get the most thorough insight into Lamanai or extra passes on the zip line? Go in the off-season. You may have a shower pass by that gets you a little wet but you trade it for the undivided attention of your tour guide.

 

  • Save Money! Who doesn't like that? Accommodations, tours, drinks and sometimes airfare are all cheaper in Belize during the off-season. Expect thirty to fifty percent off room rates country wide!

 

  • Belize weather is generally awesome all year round. Don’t' let Hurricane Season shy you away. The reality? Though hurricanes get lots of media attention, you'd have to be awfully unlucky to get caught in one. Places like Belize lie outside the hurricane belt, and statistically get hit only once every 60 years. (For more information, visit the Climatology section of the Caribbean Hurricane Network website, www.stormcarib.com). Belize sits in a unique position on the Earth - tucked into the nape of the Yucatan Peninsula. While we do get more rain during the off-season it often rains at night which beautifully cools off the air making for crisp cool mornings! When it does rain during the day it is an amazing sight and sound. Something you will never forget. And it too shall pass for clear skies and warm breezes.

5 Must Pack Items for your trip to Belize :: Staff Picks

5 Must Pack Items for your trip to Belize :: Staff Picks

Another summer season is upon us already! Are you planning your trip to Belize and wondering what to pack? We surveyed our staff, who has collectively over 50 years of experience, asking them what items they found most helpful to those traveling to Belize. Here are the St. George's Caye Resort Staff top 5 picks.

 

 

  1. PACK TOWL :: Personal Towels

Hands down our favorite and most versatile item - these very small and thin towels are highly absorbent and dry fast. Excellent for traveling, they pack into any size bag. Some ways we have used them, other than the obvious like drying off after a shower or swim- is to cover public seats when in the airport, clean your hands when no facilities are available, or cover coughs or sneezes. They wash easily in any sink, wring out most of the water and are ready to use again. By your side at the beach or pool, these little guys are handy for wiping sweat or drying your hands before you read your magazine. Diving? Perfect companion to your dive gear. Hiking in the jungle? Take one of these with you!

 

>>STAFF PICKS FAVORITE BRAND: www.PackTowl.com

 

     2.  RASH GUARD ::

Rash guards are a must for snorkeling or diving. While we do have wet suits available for your convenience our dive team highly recommends bringing along a personal rash guard. Available in many brands, colors and sizes -find one that suits you! Rash guards protect from, well, rashes -caused by dive gear or bumping coral. They also protect from sun damage while snorkeling. We often forget that while face down in the water for an hour, our backs are at the surface getting burned. Jose, our veteran dive instructor, prefers the Lands End men's (also available for women) half zip pullover rash guard. The half zipper makes putting on and taking these off much easier.

 

>>STAFF PICKS FAVORITE BRAND: www.landsend.com

 

     3.  FISHING SHIRT ::

Fishing shirts come from several different manufacturers including Magellan (Academy.com), Columbia and Under Armor. Fishing shirts are certainly not just for fishing! Take our word for it and pick one up before your trip! These shirts are designed to cover and protect your skin without the bulk. They include pockets that zip -so nothing falls out into the water, collars that adjust to cover the back of the neck, sleeves that roll and tie. Most come with sun protection of SPF 40+ to ensure you don't get burned. Throw one in your bag for a swimsuit cover or jungle companion. These shirt pack easily without any added bulk.

 

>>STAFF PICKS FAVORITE BRAND: www.Columbia.com

 

    4.  BUG SPRAY W DEET ::

When we asked our experienced staff about bug spray they unanimously agreed: if you want to without a doubt keep the bugs off your skin you must use bug repellant with DEET. I know this day and age with all the information we have about the toxicity of chemicals like DEET causes us to refrain from buying them. However, nothing can ruin a day trip to the jungle or nice walk on the beach like mosquitoes or sand flies biting at you. Whatever you choose, make sure to bring along your favorite repellant just in case the bugs

are out.

 

>>STAFF PICKS FAVORITE BRAND: OFF Outdoors or Deep Woods Repellant w/ DEET. Found at any local drugstore.

 

 

    5.  HEMP OIL ::

100% Belizean pure hemp oil Sold only in Belize, this pure hemp oil is grown, harvested, and bottled in the jungle of northern Belize. The uses of this little bottle include moisturizing, lip balm, after sun care, bug bites, rashes, or razor burn. Ask for a bottle upon check-in and discover why the locals love and recommend this product. Available in the office for $5 USD.

 

>>STAFF PICKS FAVORITE BRAND: www.itachaway.com

Sharing the Magic of St. George’s Caye with the World

We’ve got a new look! Our remodeled website launched last week and we’re so excited to share it with our friends, guests, and the whole wide world. We hope you find the new www.BelizeIslandParadise.com to be a friendly, personal view of our little island paradise. 

 

With the redesign, we focused on showcasing our amazing location – secluded, yet conveniently located only 7 miles from Belize City and less than a mile from the Belize Barrier Reef – and some of our recent improvements like the oceanfront dining porch and swimming beach. We also added lots of fun new packages that combine room, meals, and activities to make planning trips even easier!

 

(Here's a sneak peak!)

Adventures & Tours :: San Pedro Slam

Adventures & Tours :: San Pedro Slam

The 'San Pedro Slam' is one of our most popular adventures. Leaving St. George's Caye at 7:30am your day starts with warm breakfast tacos on board the crisp morning ride. I recommend bringing along a light jacket or cover. The 45-60 minute ride takes you past Caye Chapel and Caye Caulker before arriving to Ambergris Caye where the small village of San Pedro lies. The boat then docks at the Reef Adventures/Wet Willie's dock where you meet up with the professionals from Reef Adventures who outfit you for your amazing snorkel or dive.

Your first stop is the famous Hol Chan Marine Reserve, a 10 minute boat ride, where you should prepare to be amazed at the abundance of life below the sea. Like swimming inside an aquarium Hol Chan is must see attraction in Belize! As is your next stop for snorkeling or diving; Shark Ray Alley! And yes, it is full of sharks and rays. Home to mostly Nurse Sharks and Manta Rays this spectacular sight can be seen from inside the boat -for those unsure- or from under the water -for the more adventurous souls. You guide will feed them and show how to appropriately enjoy these amazing creatures. Not to be missed while in Belize.

After you have been astounded by the bounty and beauty of our Caribbean Sea life you will be taken back to the dock where you can change if you like, but no need to, and then we cut you lose to explore the island as you see fit. Lunch at a café along the beach, perhaps? A visit to the famous Elvi's Kitchen in the center of town? Whatever you choose be sure to bring some spending cash for the street vendors selling beautiful handmade jewelry and wood carvings. What else to do while in San Pedro? There are beach massages offered, many cafes to enjoy cold beer while watching the boats pass by. Real Estate offices, for the curious visitors, offer fliers posted outside of properties for sale. A band is usually playing somewhere, if not simply along the street near the vendors. You can even rent a golf cart for a couple of hours to roam around the Northern and/or Southern parts of Ambergris Caye.

By 3:30 most guests find they are ready to go back to St. George's Caye. It's been a beautiful day filled with new experiences but the peace and tranquility of SGCR is calling your name. You arrive back to your private Cabana with plenty of time to clean up and relax before dinner.

Come and play with us!
