Just a few hours’ flying time from the United States, Belize is increasingly becoming a popular destination for families wanting to experience an unforgettable vacation. With a stable, peaceful democratic government and English as its official language, families can enjoy the time of their lives in Belize as they explore ancient lost cities, see wildlife up close and in person, splash in the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean and enjoy plenty of fun in the sun.
Belize has a large network of wildlife sanctuaries and national parks that provide animal lovers of all ages a chance to see a colorful array of birds, plants and animals. Families can see the endangered black howler monkey at the Community Baboon Sanctuary, big cats like pumas and jaguars at the Belize Zoo (an animal sanctuary), or hike through Cockscomb Basin Reserve to see Baird’s tapir, Belize’s national animal.
When it’s time for adventure, families can explore one of the many Maya ruins, enormous cities occupied for thousands of years until they were abandoned and reclaimed by the jungle. For cooler and shadier thrills, exploring one of Belize’s many caves is an excellent opportunity to learn about geology as well as witness artifacts left behind by Maya priests who conducted solemn ritual rites therein.
Offshore, the islands of Belize and the enormous barrier reef offer a chance for the entire family to don snorkeling or diving equipment and witness some of the most ecologically-diverse environments on the planet. Whether it’s just a few feet offshore or at the bottom of the famous Belize Blue Hole, you and your family will be enthralled by swimming with nurse sharks, rays, sea turtles and large schools of fish. The islands are also a great chance to unwind as motor vehicles are largely prohibited and everyone gets around by bicycle or electric golf cart.
From a Maya term meaning “beautiful sea”, the resort of Chabil Mar on Placencia Peninsula offers family-friendly modern luxury in a beautiful beachfront setting just a few minutes’ walk from Placencia Village.
The resort of Chabil Mar is an ideal base of operations for exploring the most exciting destinations in Belize. You and your family can experience the best sites in Belize with Chabil Mar’s family fun vacation packages that include trips to Maya ruins, a boat tour up the Monkey River, a hike through Cockscomb Nature Preserve, and plenty of time to relax and enjoy the wonderful weather, food, and rich cultural heritage of Belize.
