Suggested Itinerary for Belize: How to Make the Most of a Week in Belize

From exploring the scenic jungle wildlife to escaping to your very own private island we invite you to experience the Best of Belize in 7 nights / 8 days!

You’ve heard of all the wonderful things Belize has to offer – the second largest barrier reef in the world, white sandy beaches, turquoise-azure water, a pristine tropical jungle, and our warm and friendly people. You’re thinking to yourself: “How can I fit all of these wonderful beach and jungle activities into my one week vacation in Belize?” We’re here to tell you that it is possible to see the Best of Belize in just a week with our newest all inclusive package: the Inland & Private Island Package.  And the good news is that this all inclusive package includes everything from local transportation, meals & local alcoholic beverages, accommodations, and exciting tours!

This package is one of the most unique in Belize as it includes accommodations at two of Belize’s premier resorts: Coco Plum Island & Belizean Dreams. We’re not kidding, both resorts were named the #1 and #2 Best Small Hotels in Belize in 2016 and the #1 and #2 Best Hotels for Romance in 2017 by TripAdvisor. Both resorts have also been recognized for superior service throughout Belize and Central America. Apart from that, these resorts are actually sister properties and are owned and managed by Belizeans who are proud to showcase their beautiful country in every way possible – whether that be through charming suites, adrenaline pumping tours, or the service and hospitality of our Belizean staff members.
