Belize is a tropical delicacy brimming with romantic delights and ineffable adventure. Colorful toucans perch on the jungle tree branches. Waterfalls cascade inside limestone caves. Jaguars skulk through the forest underbrush in search of their next meal. Coral glows underneath the crystal-clear water. The soft sand on the beaches feels inviting between your toes. Mayan temples rise above the treetops like ancient skyscrapers. Manta rays glide along the seafloor with elegant movement. Your tour...
San Ignacio – Love at First Sight
Your first image of Belize comes when you look out the window during your flight’s descent. The emerald treetops rush to the edges of the turquoise Caribbean Sea. You can feel the tropical sun warming your skin already. The flight lands at Philip S.W. Goldson International Airport. Check-in to your local flight which will take you to the Cayo District Airport near San Ignacio. You soon arrive in the western jungles of Belize. Lush trees border the runway along the hillside. A wide, gravel-paved avenue leads from the main road to the resort. The verdant landscape welcomes you first and foremost to Belize.
The nearby city of San Ignacio has a vibrant center with a gracious, inviting atmosphere filled with bustling markets, and locals spanning the Belizean cultural spectrum from Maya to Mestizos, Garifuna to free-spirit expatriates. A private transfer greets you at the airport upon your arrival and helps with your bags. Cows graze in the undulating hills beyond the tree line. Howler monkeys hide in the canopy. The concierge of the resort greets you and your partner with a glass of fresh berry juice made with produce grown on the local organic farm. You press the cool peppermint towel to your cheeks and neck. The aroma and temperatures of the fabric helps refresh you after traveling. In your room, you can relax with your partner and settle in to the amorous sounds of the secluded jungle.
