This trip gives you a great taste of Belize without too hectic a pace. The main attractions of this beautiful country are its jungles, beaches and exceptionally friendly people - all of which you will experience on this three-centred itinerary. Placencia is a laid-back seaside town on Belize's Coastal Mainland - there are plenty of activities on offer if you are feeling adventurous, however we think it is a great place to just relax and recover from the journey. You will then travel to Toledo District - this area is much less visited than other regions and feels very authentic with its Caribbean culture, cacao plantations and abundance of caves and forests. All the lodges here can help you arrange a variety of activities depending on how busy you would like your time to be. Finally you will take a scenic flight to Ambergris Caye - here you are just a short boat trip away from extensive coral reef, so it is a perfect place to snorkel and dive with sharks and rays, or just unwind on palm-fringed beaches.

Itinerary highlights

  • A relaxing start to the trip as you unwind on Placencia's beaches.

  • A visit to Belize's last frontier, the Toledo District, where you can visit cacao plantations and swim in caves.

  • Snorkel with sharks, turtles and rays on Ambergris Caye.
