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.

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? :)

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.

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.

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!
