It's time to start looking forward to the future and taste the freedom of travel again! Belize tantalizes all of your senses from sights and sounds to taste. The blend of culture, Caribbean, and cuisine is colorful, crafted, and just plain crave-able! While you plan your trip to St. George's Caye Resort, sink into this blog and visualize yourself at the island!  

Good morning! The temperature is about 76 degrees Fahrenheit, and tropically perfect. You have awakened to the sea breeze coming through your window, you open your cabana or villa door to find that our friendly staff has delivered fresh coffee, tea, and juice to your door. As you stretch, take a look at the sun, sea, and white coral sands, you sip your coffee and dream of the adventures and relaxation of your day.

On your own time and terms, when you're ready for breakfast, head over to the Sand Bar Lounge. There, you will find a sweet assortment of granola, tropical fruit, and yogurt to indulge in. Next up, breakfast made to order. Your menu includes a variety of the tastes of Belize as well as your homestyle favorites, all served with dietary needs in mind.

A must-try is our Belizean specialty, fry jacks that are often served with cheese, refried beans, eggs, and other colorful, flavorful ingredients.

Once you have had your massage, found your way to the sandbar while sailing, or taken an excursion off of the island to one of the many adventures that Belize has to offer, it is time for your midday meal. Lunch may include fresh slaw, soups, authentic Belizean rice and beans, stewed chicken, or tamales.

As your day winds down and you have soaked up as much sun as you can, join us for your four-course gourmet meal. Chefs choice usually includes conch, fish, or other seafood, a variety of meats, sauces, and veggies. Not in the mood for meat? Choose from our vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and other diet-sensitive options. Pair your fare with a refreshing traditional or virgin daiquiri, ice-cold Belikin Beer, or tropical mixed drink and you have the makings for complete satisfaction!

Belize is a melting pot when it comes to cuisine, and with so many delicious dishes to choose from your taste buds will be on cloud nine. Read on to learn about the five foods we think everyone should try when visiting Belize and prepare your palate at home! 

Fry Jack

Fry jacks are one of the most popular foods in Belize. They are small triangles of dough that are fried until golden brown and served warm. Normally eaten for breakfast and served alongside refried beans, sausage, eggs, etc.. A drizzle of honey on top turns a savory fry jack into a decadent delight!

Rice and Beans

Rice and beans is the Belizean national dish composed of a base of red kidney beans and rice and cooked in coconut milk. Typically served with stewed chicken, but any meat will do! It is traditionally served with a Belizean style potato salad. 

Stew Chicken or Pork

Belizean comfort food at its finest! Chicken or pork is rubbed in Red Recardo or achiote paste and slow-cooked in broth. Served over rice and beans for lunch or dinner. This dish will leave you feeling full and happy! Click here for a recipe!

Tamales (Bollo)

Belizeans put their own twist on the traditional Mexican tamale by wrapping them with plantain leaves instead of corn husks. Seasoned meat (chicken or pork) is wrapped in a soft corn dough and then steamed in plantain leaves. They can also be vegetarian by substituting the meat with vegetables. Want to make your own at home? Follow the recipe HERE.

Conch Fritters

Fresh sea food is abundant in Belize, and a crowd favorite is conch. Conch fritters are a popular appetizer, and are made from a batter of Conch, sweet peppers, onions, celery, flour, and seasonings and then deep fried to perfection! Yum!

Whether breakfast, lunch or dinner is your favorite, you will be sure to find a new and robust palate of flavors to excite the senses. We welcome you to our table. Be our guest!

In a day and age of the most fast paced lifestyles in history, it is no wonder that one needs to totally disconnect in an effort to fully relax. With phones, computers, even watches that makes you instantly available to everyone, it is likely impossible to let it all go with out turning it all off. 

We love that our little island offers the opportunity to be connected when you wish; we often see guests on FaceTime with their loved ones in the mornings or evenings. But, we also offer the opportunity to completely disconnect and achieve the ultimate in relaxation and reflection.

Ways to include relaxation in your life:

Find a relaxation technique that works for you and make it part of your daily routine, even if it's just for 5 or 10 minutes a day.

Keeping a healthy work life balance helps with relaxation and managing stress.

As the speed of life continues to accelerate, it is so important to pause for these healthy practices. If you are finding it difficult to do this at home, we will be your excuse to come away from it all and immerse yourself in pampering and peace!

What's New for 2017 at St. George's Caye Resort

What's New for 2017 at St. George's Caye Resort

Our secluded island paradise is pretty much perfect for relaxing and adventuring -- located only 7 miles off the coast of Belize and less than a mile from the reef, St. George's Caye offers great access to both ocean and jungle adventures. There are only 12 thatch cabanas and a limited number of guests at one time (and no TVs or cars!), so you can truly get away from it all. And our staff is one of the finest in the country, providing top-notch friendly service without being intrusive. 

But we're always looking for ways to improve the guest experience and make your time in Belize even better. We listen to guest feedback at the resort, via TripAdvisor reviews, and through post-stay guest surveys -- and we’ve made a few fun updates so that you have an even more incredible time at our island resort in Belize. 

Better Beach Area, New Bar Menu & More

This past fall our team rehabbed our beach to prevent further erosion and make it even better for our guests. We've added a ramp and stairs to make it easier to launch the Hobie Cat sailboats, and the sand is dotted with pink chairs and colorful hammocks for reading, napping, and sunbathing. The four Oceanfront Cabanas face this beautiful stretch of beach and offer front-row seats for the sunrise each morning. 

 

Earlier in 2016 we added stand-up paddle-boards for guests to use free of charge as much as they like. In addition to unlimited use of kayaks, Hobie Cat sailboats, windsurf boards, and snorkel gear. Read more: Some of the Best Activities in Belize are Free (for our Guests!)

 

 

In 2016 we also unveiled a new bar menu with fun tropical drinks and lower prices (read more: Happy Hour just got...) and added LegaSea to our fleet of boats. For the ultimate in comfort, we put king beds in every cabana. And we added new pool furniture (with cup holders!) so you can relax and do nothing for as long as you like. 

 

 

So that's at least 5 great reasons to visit us in Belize, for the first time or as returning friends. What are you waiting for?!
