Blue Hole National Park – Tropical Welcome
As the plane descends into Philip S.W. Goldson International Airport, the kids look out the window at the emerald trees encompassing east of Belize City. To the west, the indigo Caribbean Sea glints in the sunlight. Your private transfer meets the family at baggage claim after you disembark the plane. The tropical ambiance greets you outside of the airport. Palm trees rustle in the gentle breeze. The indulgent aroma of coconut drifts past. At the town of Belmopan, you turn onto the Hummingbird Highway. The thoroughfare travels more than 53 miles and remains the only highway in Belize that cuts through the mountains.
The family marvels at the beauty sweeping alongside the road. Your driver says Hummingbird Highway is the prettiest drive in the country. You believe it as you pass by orange groves and towering jade trees. The Maya Mountains roll along the horizon, creating interesting shapes. In the distance, you can see the sleeping giant, named for the way the mountains resembles a large person at rest. The van pulls into your accommodation near Blue Hole National Park. The entire family is excited to spend time in a luxurious room overlooking the jungle.
